Setting New Family Goals for The New Year

Posted on 12-15-2015

The beginning of a new year creates a great opportunity to be refreshed and renewed. The challenges of last year are gone and every parent and child has a new opportunity to make changes and adjustments for the new year. Parents may want to take advantage of the Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Greensboro Special Programs for their child’s increased physical activity and social skills. Children may want to try a new item on the lunch menu to experience different foods. You may also want to take advantage of our Before and After School Program to give your child a better experience while you are busy or working. With so many options for new experiences and goals, our parents, preschoolers and school-aged children can enjoy setting new goals to make the new year full of milestones for infants and toddlers and success for the entire family.

Here are some ideas for setting new family goals for the new year:

  • Don’t make it too serious. Many changes take time to complete. Set goals for accomplishing small steps so you can see your progress. Encourage and reward accomplishments and comfort your child when adjustments are needed.
  • Set learning goals for your children. At Kids ‘R’ Kids of Greensboro, we believe in making learning fun. Take a look at our ABCmouse for learning outside the classroom. Also consider teaching your child how to prepare a new snack or treat. Go a step further and encourage your child to demonstrate what she is learning at school. Our Spanish learning creates an excellent opportunity to take learning home – Say, Good Morning (Buenos Dias) and see how your child responds!
  • Set new family goals. Have a talk with your family and find out what everyone would like to happen in the new year. Then decide how the family can help each other reach their goals. Does someone want to lose weight? Then, the family can decide to replace cookies and chips with fruit and vegetables for 30 days in support of the weight loss goals. Does the family want to spend more time together, be more active, or restore something in your home? Agree on a goal and enjoy the time together.

Try to get everyone in the family on board. The staff at Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Greensboro would love to hear about your goals and your success. We are not just a daycare or childcare that keeps watch over your child. We are a learning academy with a state-of-the-art facility, quality teachers, accredited programs, and a big heart that loves to see infants, toddlers, and preschool children learning, growing, and thriving at home and in our fun and loving environment! Feel free to contact us and talk about some of our goals as well.
