We’ve been helping our students practice healthy habits, like proper handwashing, with some fun tricks that your family can try at home! Here are some of our teachers’ favorite ways for little ones to learn about keeping those hands clean:

✔️ Wash while singing the alphabet song for a 20-second scrub.
✔️Together, list some handwashing befores and afters — like before eating a snack and after playing with pets.
✔️ Make handwashing fun with a sensory bin filled with sponges and soapy water.

Happy National Safety Month! Now that summer is in full swing, we wanted to share some important water safety tips to keep in mind all season long.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children start swim lessons once they turn a year old.

Make sure there’s always at least one designated adult (a “water watcher”) who closely monitors children while they swim.

Use U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets in all open water, which includes pools, lakes and oceans.

Timeline photos 06/28/2022

At our School, we’re serious about safety, which includes being safe around water. As your family gets ready to splash your way through summer, we wanted to share a few important water safety tips:

• Don’t leave children alone near water even if it’s only a few inches deep.
• Never swim alone.
• Always swim where lifeguards are present.

Our extended Goddard family is shocked, horrified and saddened by the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX. Acts of senseless violence have become all too commonplace, and Goddard strongly condemns this act of violence, and our hearts go out to the victims, their families and the entire Uvalde community.

Here are some ways to help support your children through hard conversations.

• Check in with yourself. How are you feeling? Children are sensitive to their families’ emotions, so it’s important for you to acknowledge your own feelings before approaching hard topics. To help keep everyone calm, stick to familiar routines and structure.

• Help your child feel safe. First, ease your child’s worry and then reassure them that they’re okay. Children need to know that when bad things happen in the world there are people around them who will keep them safe.

• If you think your child has heard about recent events, let them know that it’s okay to talk about it. It gives them a safe place to share how they feel and ask questions. Naming your own emotions will help validate your children’s feelings so that it’s a little less scary.
