We are so thankful for our AMAZING team! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! 💞
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! 🥰
The weekend is almost here! What are you looking forward to most this weekend? Help provide your fellow Lightbridge community with some fun ideas!
Pretend play with animals helps your child to work out their place in the world. They can show understanding, empathy and care for other creatures. They can work through possible fears and anxiety related to animals. This all helps in developing emotional maturity. While playing with the animals children actively engage with speech and use it for role and pretend play with their peers. This helps to practice their language skills and verbalize their thoughts. Study shows that there is a strong link between "symbolic play" and language learning.
Did you know we offer a summer program? Your child will enjoy a fun, safe and structured first summer camp experience. They will make new friends, learn important life skills, enjoy adventures, and create many memories! As The Solution for Working Parents, we are here to support you as an extension of your very own family and a true partner in your child’s early education and development.
Nurturing each family member in a supportive and positive environment is a core value of ours. As we get closer to summer, how do you plan to engage with your children throughout the season? Here are some ideas to help stimulate your child’s mind throughout the summer: ​​https://lightbridgeacademy.com/blog/post/?id=ideas-to-continue-to-stimulate-your-childs-mind-throughout-the-summer-35
We had an EGG-cellent time at our Spring Event today! Thank you to all the families who joined us! 🐰🥰
Block play offers an open-ended, creative and valuable play and learning experience available to every setting. It offers children freedom – to explore, take apart and put back together any block-based creation they can think of. There are a lot of benefits to be gained from this activity. When playing with blocks, children challenge their imagination, self-expression, problem-solving, mathematics, science, creativity, language and physical skills!

We are so much more than just a daycare! Many working parents need care for their children but also desire a high quality early childhood educational program.

From the first hello of the day, to the last good-bye, we want every child to feel safe, nurtured, and excited to learn and grow with us, and for you to consider us a true partner in the development and education of your child. We go beyond what\'s expected, creating a one-of-a-kind educational experience for the children we care for and the families who cherish them.

It’s National Sibling’s Day! How do you encourage your children to play and get along with their siblings? If you’re in need of ideas, or are looking for new ways to bring your family together, here are 55 game ideas we found: https://www.momjunction.com/articles/games-to-play-with-sibliings_00762221/

As children become more mobile, they will start using their hands to examine objects more often. It's common for infants and toddlers to pop objects into their mouths. They are curious, and they are using all five senses to learn about their surroundings.

Did you know that music can make you and your baby smarter and happier? This is because listening to, and playing music, produce changes in the brain. Also, both activities can release a healthy dose of endorphins, the so-called ‘happiness hormone’. 😊

We love using different art media when expressing our creativity. Children practice hand eye coordination as they direct the flower stamp to go where they aim on the paper. Their hand’s dexterity improves as they hold and flip the flower stamp and practice their fine motor skills. They experiment with mark making and artistic expression through color choice. Please call us at 718-643-9800 to learn more about our Curriculum and programs!

Music plays an important part in our life and culture. A great variety of instrument toys of different sizes, shapes, and different ways to play can help to strengthen and develop young child’s different muscle areas. Using instruments in an imaginative way can help young children discover how to create familiar melodies at their own level of understanding. Music provides them the chance to express how they are feeling now. As children enjoy exploring the different sounds, their language skills develop, they begin to discuss, show, and respond to emotions. Call to secure your space today!

From an infant discovering his hands to a toddler feeding himself with a fork, children’s hand-eye coordination steadily develops during the first years of life. That is why utensil use is a practical way to help your child develop early fine motor skills. Using utensils to eat can even help prepare your child to write. Mastering the Grasp Children need to acquire finger dexterity and strength along with hand-eye coordination. Call us to schedule your tour today!

Imaginative play, or make-believe as it is sometimes referred to, fosters a child’s creativity, it promotes physical development in a fun way. It provides an opportunity for children to practice and develop their problem solving and language and social skills! ☺️

In an effort to support the 7.5 million children and families impacted by the crisis in Ukraine, the Lightbridge Foundation is teaming up with all Lightbridge Academy centers to donate over $30,000 to the families who have been negatively impacted and are in need. Each Lightbridge Academy location is partnering with an organization in their community that is providing relief for refugees through both donations and collections of clothing and supplies. If you would like to support this initiative, please reach out to your local Lightbridge Academy center for details.

From morning routines to workout routines, our lives as adults are filled with everyday routines that help keep us on schedule. Children also need to have predictable routines that have room for flexibility, especially infants and toddlers. Here are three main reasons why routines for mealtime, nap time, playtime, bedtime, cuddle time, etc. are important for infants and toddlers: Routines give infants and toddlers a sense of security and stability. They influence infants and toddlers' social, emotional, and cognitive development. Everyday routines can be used as teachable moments.
