    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.

     

    Starwood Montessori encourages you to have a safe and fun Halloween this year! Contact us at (972) 464-2597 or visit our website to learn more about our Montessori school in Frisco. We take your child’s safety seriously every day.

    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.

    How to Help Your Child with Spanish Lessons

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Enrolling your child in a Montessori school can help her become a well-rounded individual and help to foster her innate curiosity about the world around her. At Starwood Montessori, we offer supplemental Spanish classes to encourage further development of language skills and a deeper understanding of different cultures. You can help your child with her Spanish lessons even if you don’t speak the language yourself by using flashcards to help her learn vocabulary and grammar rules. Learning will become a regular part of home life when you put index cards on household objects with their Spanish names written on them. As your child grows more proficient in her language skills, you can find children’s books in Spanish and have her read them out loud to you. You may even find your own Spanish skills improving at the same time!

     

    Starwood Montessori is the perfect place for your child to develop and explore her own independence. Call us at (972) 464-2597 to find out more about our curriculum, as well as our supplemental programs in Spanish, Fine Arts, and more.
