This month in the Chickadees we enjoyed singing and learning songs. Some of our favorite songs are “Old McDonald Had A Farm”, “If You’re Happy And You Know It” and “The Wheels On The Bus”. We also love to sing our ABC’s and the older babies have really been trying to mimic us when we sing. We would love for you to share any songs you sing as a family. Additionally, we continue to enjoy floor play and cooperative games such as rolling balls back and forth and pushing cars to one another. We are learning social skills and growing every day!
We hope you all enjoyed our Halloween parade as much as we did. The babies really had fun and it was so nice to see their happy, smiling faces. Thank you to all the parents who came and helped us that day.
If there is going to be a change in your baby’s pick up and drop off schedule please let one of us know, thank you.
Signing may be one of the first language lessons that we give to our babies. Singing can help with your baby’s feeding and sleeping since it is calming to them. Research has shown that “lullabies” are scientifically proven to calm them to sleep, stimulate cognitive and language development as well as strengthen your bond. This also includes music, exposing them to music and a young age helps them learn sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to the music ( which our babies love to do) helps build their motor skills and allows them to use self expression. Most importantly sing, dance and have fun with your little one!
