Although the school year just ended a month ago local department and convenience stores are filling the aisles with back to school supplies. Pocket folders, binders, pencils, crayons, and a host of other necessities are spilling over the edges of shelves waiting to be claimed by kids and families. It seems, as usual, we’re in a rush to make the next big thing happen, however, summer is still in full swing with heat and humidity taking center stage most days.
Here at Children’s Friend summertime is also a great time to be a kid in our Summer Learning & Enrichment Program. Field trips, daily activities related to sand, water, and other summer standards, keep both staff and children engaged in learning and having fun! Even an impromptu touch-a-truck event during a fire drill was a learning opportunity for kids and grown-ups alike.
There is still plenty of time and plenty of summer to enjoy before the new school year begins. We hope you make the most of it!
