What Is Your Preschooler Actually Learning?




There is a lot of speculation into preschool and whether or not it is necessary for young children. While it may look like they are only dancing around and playing games, there is actually a huge amount of development going on with social, physical, emotional, and intellectual development. What your child learns about at this stage of their life is actually setting the foundation for the rest of their lives. Young children learn best through creative play and activities, so you have to remember that when they are putting that train track together and building that tower out of blocks, they are actually learning about physics and problem solving. Have you driven past the Newport Ave Preschool and wondered what they were doing in there? Here are a few of the subjects that they are covering.


Children will learn about letters and their sounds. Being able to recognize and name every letter of the alphabet is a stepping stone to reading. They will learn about the letters in their name and how to spell it. Preschool-age children will also learn about the sounds associated with each letter as they begin their journey of being able to read someday. The love of language, however, starts at home and it starts early. It’s important that you read to your child each day and take opportunities to point out letters in their everyday life.

Preschoolers at Newport Ave Preschool and elsewhere will become familiar with and be able to name the different colors, shapes, and body parts. While they are at school, there is a lot of learning that can go on in regards to colors, shapes, and body parts. However, there is even more learning that can be done outside of the classroom as you interact with your child. Colors and shapes are all around your child and can be pointed out as you are at home or traveling around. Knowing the names of their body parts will also make their life a little bit easier when they are learning about themselves and the world around them. They can find great enjoyment in being able to point to their elbow, knee, and other parts of their body.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
