Remember that old song?  “Give them things that they can grow by…”

This year, let’s do just that.  Our children are open, eager and willing to try new things.  In fact they thrive on it!

Children are such curious creatures. They explore, question, and wonder, and by doing so, they learn.  As adults, teachers and parents it is up to us to present opportunities to help them learn and discover new things.  At Health Start our passion is to teach our kids about health early on — alongside the ABCs and 123s — giving them lifelong wellness and creating brighter futures for our communities.

Here are a few ways that we can keep our children engaged, motivated and “hungry for more” all of their lives, but especially in the formative years.

  1. Inspire our little ones by being a good role model
  2. Alleviate fear of change and new things through loving support so that curiosity remains alive
  3. Show patience and approval for your child’s explorations and discoveries
  4. Be a caring presence who creates a sense of safety for your child
  5. Listen to your inquisitive child’s questions and observations
Teach your children well, and feed them on your dreams.  Feed also…their dreams!
