Smart Phones, Your Child and 911
Do you use a landline or has your household gone exclusively to mobile phones?
Please remember that your child needs to know how to dial 911 in an emergency on both types of phone.
The more your practice the more comfortable your child will be in an emergency. Please practice regularly especially if you change phones often.
Children who attend preschool do better in kindergarten than those who don't but that’s not all: the positive effects of preschool go on and on. As Barbara Willer of the National Association for the Education of Young Children told C-Span, “[Preschool] helps determine the trajectory of success they will have later on."
Another recent study found that attending a quality preschool boosted test performance for low-income children well into middle school; researchers also found evidence linking preschool attendance to higher rates of parent involvement and maternal employment. A third, long term study of children who attended an early education program found that 25 years later, participants stayed in school longer and had a higher standard of living, as well as lower rates of crime and drug use, than a control group.
Experts say that low-income children benefit most from preschool, but there are obvious advantages for all kids, including the valuable social-emotional skills that they receive.
