Although it may be tempting to take the summer off from planning, there are many benefits in continuing with your intentional programming:
• Children need learning activities to keep their brains engaged
• A busy day goes by so much more quickly for children and adults
• A planned day goes by so much more smoothly
• Children that are engaged are less likely to have behavior challenges
• Less behavior challenges equals a more enjoyable experience for adults and children!
