    Wow, can it really be that we are here, now, facing the holidays? If you are like me, you are totally excited.

  • The holidays are a great time for play together

    During the holiday break parents and grandparents can share many happy fun activities.

    Outdoor play is still important, but doing indoor activities in the warmth of the home is more enticing.

    Think for a moment about how to make the best use of your children’s indoor time. What are your children’s interests? What are they able to do developmentally?
