Sleep. A core ingredient for pre-schoolers
We can't stress this enough. Children need plenty of sleep. And by plenty, pediatricians say toddlers need up to 13-hours of sleep. (Check WebMD, for a breakdown per age group.). This topic came up during Curriculum Night.
Here were some other areas that we talked about:
What could you do as a parent?
Let the child dress independently, with practical clothing.
Feed him/herself. Finger foods but a choice of different foods
SLEEP, Sleep, Sleep! Recommended for pre-schoolers – they need 10-13 hours of sleep
Encourage the natural sense of order to develop in your child’s life. Toys need to be cleaned up and put away.
Maintain a good morning routine
