Getting children to take care of their teeth can be challenging albeit especially important, after all the treats and sweets during the holidays. Here are five ways to encourage good dental health:

2. Limit the consumption of sugary foods and drinks.
3. Be a good example of dental hygiene.
4. Go shopping for dental supplies with your child.
5. Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings.

Today we celebrated the importance of reading by inviting special guests to share stories with our classes!

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” —Melody Beattie. We are thankful for our incredible Goddard School family! Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving, establish a new family tradition revolving around what your family is thankful for. Have everyone write or draw what they are most thankful for in a family journal. Make a point of adding to this journal throughout the year, and by next Thanksgiving you will have an amazing record of thanks. Add to this year after year—what a great treat it will be for the family to read through each Thanksgiving as your children grow! Share some of your Thanksgiving traditions!

Young children benefit from active, hands-on activities. Encourage your young scientists at home by baking, planting a garden and star gazing with your children. Talk about what is happening, ask questions and encourage them to describe what they see.

Fall is a great time for family hikes! Before you go, plan ahead, be prepared and get ready for adventure! To help young children acclimate to the experience, start with short hikes on easy trails, and go slow to enjoy and explore your surroundings. Exposure to nature provides many benefits to children including stress reduction, a better attention span and a boost in creativity.

We hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend with your family and friends! How are you spending your three-day holiday?

Starting school or going back to school can be a stressful time. Help ease back-to-school butterflies by transitioning your children into a routine. Establish a reasonable bedtime, serve a healthy breakfast and organize the night before. Allow children time to adjust. Remind them that everyone feels a little nervous about the start of school and that it will all become an everyday routine in no time!

Encourage play. Playing alone and with others not only builds brain development, it also helps children develop social skills and a sense of ethics. The most effective play is free of evaluation and correction (after all, throwing a ball shouldn’t be “right” or “wrong”), while promoting autonomy.

Young children benefit from active, hands-on activities. Encourage your young scientists at home by baking, planting a garden and star gazing with your children. Talk about what is happening, ask questions and encourage them to describe what they see.

Children learn a lot from their parents, and they also learn a lot from their siblings. It is best to encourage our children to have strong connections with one another for them to achieve stable social and emotional development.

Wishing you a happy and safe Independence Day!

While having fun at a picnic, parade or the beach this weekend, protect yourself and your family in the sun. Healthy habits are best learned young -- be a role model and wear sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. How are you spending your weekend?

Happy Father's Day!! We hope our family of dads, step-dads, grandfathers, uncles and fathers-to-be have a wonderful day! How is your family celebrating you today?

Are you planning a summer vacation with your children? Young children are natural explorers and typically adore adventures. But they love them even more when they have been prepared for new experiences. Better-prepared kids are kids who cope better.

Your patience, guidance, and understanding response to your child's energy and independence, preferences and needs, talents and quirks will profoundly affect the grownup your child is becoming.

Happy Memorial Day! As we celebrate today, let's be sure to remember those who gave their lives for this great nation. We thank you for your service and your sacrifice.
