Daily Daycare Schedules

I have been a childcare provider for almost 20 years and a daily schedule helps a whole lot and it gets the child ready for school when they know it's time to play/learn and have meals or snack and nap time and plus it makes the day go by faster when there is program in place. Structure is very important for your child to do well in school. What are your favorite parts of your daycare's daily schedule?

How do I get my toddler to begin speaking in full sentences?

My son is about 18 months, and he knows quite a few words, but he uses few full sentences and pronounces most of the words wrong. Should I try to find him a speech pathologist, or am I just worrying about nothing? Is there any reason not to take him to see one just in case?

When should my 5-year-old be able to read?

My LO is transitioning from preschool to kindergarten next month. She just turned 5, and I’m concerned that she hasn’t learned how to read yet. Should she be able to read by the time she starts kindergarten? Worried she might have a learning issue or be falling behind.

Best Los Angeles camps for preschoolers!

Our kids are far apart in age at 3 and 10. Our oldest is making plans for summer camp, making it a very frequent topic around the house. Now our preschooler wants to go to camp, too. He’s obviously too young for overnight camps, but WDYT? Any local reccs? Part of me is excited about the alone time I’d get if I could sync up their camp schedules.

Tips for teaching my kids Spanish?

Hi mamas! My husband and I are Hispanic, and we would really like to raise our kids to be bilingual and speak Spanish, but it's a different experience for them than it was for my husband and I. When we grew up, our parents really only spoke Spanish. My husband and I mostly speak English at home. Do you have any tips for us to help raise our kids to speak Spanish? They're ages 3 and 4!
