From Valentines to Construction to Art to Friendship,
we've had it all at Holly Tree! Today we are celebrating
our blessings and our Holly Tree children are the best ones!
At Holly Tree our children observe, construct, experiment,
create, build positive relationships, and develop a joy for life.
We wouldn't have it any other way!
has this to say about preschoolers' early relationships:
"Often the preschool years mark a child’s introduction to
the world of peers and peer relationships. Research supports the notion
that children benefit in many ways from positive peer interactions.
In early childhood programs, friendships foster a sense of connection
and security and build self-esteem and self-confidence,
helping young children adapt more readily to the preschool setting
Friendships provide important opportunities for children to learn and develop."
One Harvard Study has this to say:
"The warmth and support of the caregiver in a child care setting also influence the development of important capabilities in children, including greater social competence, fewer behavior problems, and enhanced thinking and reasoning skills at school age."
Our Holly Tree teachers understand this and create nurturing
relationships with the children they care for both individually
and classroom wide; we are blessed to have
the best teachers here at Holly Tree!
Many Blessings to you and you family!
