Somehow through the years PeeWee has acquired the reputation of requiring potty training before enrollment. This never has been true and never will be! Most children at the age of two are barely interested in potty training and when pushed into it will create a mental block that can be very hard to overcome! If you are wondering where your child is at with their potty training compared to their peers please speak to their teacher for more information. We want to help with this milestone as much as possible!

A child's family is the most important influence on how they see themselves and the world around them. Making time together as a family each day is critical to the stability a child needs. One great way to make time together each day is to ensure the family dinner.
During dinner please ask your child how their day went, this is a great time to encourage language and communication skills. It also gives your child a time when they can show off what they have learned to you without being asked. Be sure to share good things about your day with your child too. Let them know what you do while you are away from them, this makes them feel important in your life. Give your child a chance to share their thoughts and feelings with you, ask about their wants, needs and fears. You might be surprised what a young child is picking up on, and what they are concerned with.
The following article goes over the importance and long standing effects having family dinners can have on a child's life.
