    Help Your Child Get Ready for Halloween!

    Last updated 9 months ago

    The spookiest time of year is here again! Halloween is just around the corner, and there’s a good chance that your child is counting down the days until the festivities arrive. This is a great opportunity for you to spend some quality time with your child outside of his private school and turn the holiday into a teachable moment. Keep reading to learn how to help your child get ready for Halloween!

    Make a Costume Together

    Whether your child wants to be a pirate, a pilgrim, a ghost, or a goblin, you can work together to create a fantastic costume right in your own home. Making a costume together allows you to bond with your child and teaches him the value of doing things for himself. It would be simple to purchase a costume off the rack at a Halloween store, but creating something together gives your child the chance to feel proud of his accomplishments. He may even feel an increased sense of independence and confidence in his abilities, which can translate into confidence in his academic pursuits at his Montessori school.

    Create and Hang Decorations

    Just as you and your child are working on making a costume together, you can collaborate to decorate your home for Halloween. Ask your child for ideas on what you should hang on the front door and walls, and develop a plan together as to how you can make those decorations happen. This will get your child’s creative juices flowing, and he’ll be proud of having the most festive house on the block.

    Ensure a Safe Halloween

    Though Halloween is a time of year when many people enjoy being frightened, you shouldn’t be frightened about your child’s safety. Talk to your child about safe trick-or-treating, and make sure he always uses sidewalks and crosswalks even if there is an adult present. Having a short conversation about Halloween safety can put your mind at ease this year.

    This Halloween, engage with your child to make learning experiences into fun activities. To learn about the Montessori Method of education, contact Starwood Montessori at (972) 464-2597. We are dedicated to your child’s development inside and outside of the classroom. 

    Safety Tips for a Fun Halloween

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Halloween is almost here, which means it’s time to get out the pumpkins and costumes for the kids. A fun Halloween starts with safety. Watch this video for helpful tips on keeping your kid safe this Halloween.

    Before your child even leaves the house to go trick-or-treating, make sure she is able to see out of her costume. Some masks reduce visibility, so be sure that she has clear vision in all directions. Costumes should have some reflectivity to make them visible to drivers on the road, and trick-or-treaters should carry flashlights to help motorists see them. Always remember that an adult should be present for Halloween activities.

    Tips for Keeping Kids Healthy During the Fall Season

    Last updated 9 months ago

    As a parent, there are few things more important to you than your child’s health and wellbeing. When you enroll your child in a private Montessori school, you take an important step towards making sure your child has a bright future. This fall, work together with your child to teach him what he needs to know about living a healthy life. Read on for tips on keeping your child healthy this fall season.

    Develop a Routine
    Now that school is back in session, having a regular routine in place for your child is even more important. Establish a morning ritual for before school, and have guidelines in place after school for homework time, play time, and screen time. It’s also a good idea to have a consistent bedtime, as sleep is crucial for good physical and mental functioning the following day. Talk to your child and come to an agreement on what a reasonable schedule is for both of you. Your child may have to compromise a little bit, but he’ll feel respected if he is a part of the decision-making process.

    Be Active
    Physical activity is just as important for kids’ health as getting plenty of rest. Take advantage of the crisp autumn air to engage in fun outdoor activities with your child. Whether you go to a farm to pick pumpkins, rake leaves together, or toss around a football in the yard, being active together sets a good example for your child and reinforces the idea that activity is fun and rewarding.

    Encourage Healthy Eating
    Fall is a festive time of year that comes with many food temptations like Halloween candy and sweets at Thanksgiving. Teach your child about the benefits of healthy eating, and be sure to set a good example. You can indulge in a sweet, crisp apple rather than a candy bar when you need a snack, and then encourage your child to do the same. Establishing good eating habits at a young age will benefit your child in the long run.

    At Starwood Montessori in Frisco, we are committed to your child’s overall health. Using the Montessori Method, we provide children with the tools they need for success in the classroom and beyond. Call us at (972) 464-2597 to learn more about our toddler, primary, and elementary programs.
