In a country where two-thirds of all young people are in debt, the need for early economic education is evident. Research has shown that economic understanding is a developmental process and most children have misguided views of the economic world.
So at what age should children start learning about money? As soon as they can say ‘I want.’ For young children connections between money, work and goods can be made simply by saying things like “I have to go to work so I can get money and I need money to buy food for us.”
Black History Month originated in 1926 by historian Carter G. Woodson. It started as just a week of remembrance on the second week of February which was chosen because it marked the birthdays of President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass, two Americans who greatly influenced the lives of African Americans.
Did you know that the benefits of early art education extends well beyond providing a creative outlet for children? Research shows that participation in the arts helps to develop fine motor, language and problem solving skills just to name a few.
CMoR knows how important early art education is and that’s why we are excited to introduce Studio 101!
CMoR knows that as a parent you try hard to protect your child from germs especially during flu season. We want you to know that we do too. Here are just a few of the measures we are taking to keep CMoR flu-free.
Items children touch such as counters and chairs are cleaned daily using a hospital-grade cleaner. Costumes are washed and dried and are swapped for clean ones throughout the day. Plastic food, plates and utensils are cleaned in a dish washer everyday and hard surfaces are constantly sanitized and wiped.
Research has shown that participating in art, music, movement and storytelling helps to develop language, mathematics, science and social skills as well as strengthen the synapses between brain cells. At birth, a child has the brain potential to learn any language, learn and appreciate music and movement, and to create visual art. In order to reach full potential, these skills must be encouraged and developed before the age of eight.
Study Shows Recess Should be put back into the Swing of Things:
With all of the emphasis on testing it’s easy to forget a part of the school day that a recent study suggests is equally important …recess.
Author of the study and member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Catherine Ramstetter, said that recess breaks as short as 10 minutes have shown to improve children’s learning efficiency during the rest of the school hour.
