Consejos Para Padres ~ Parenting Tips
Participating in group activities is a shared experience between you and your toddler. Shared attention, or engaging in a shared experience is an opportunity to build vocabulary while also teaching the social construct of taking turns. During a group conversation or presentation, we can talk to our child before arriving about taking a turn from talking to be a good listener. You can also introduce vocabulary during this preview session with your child. During the session, sit with your child, whisper gentle reminders. Try to offer a snack to your child before group time to minimize distraction by hunger.
Pasitos is an eco-friendly, bilingual community based on learning and fun. Through a play based Reggio inspired curriculum, children gain the necessary literacy skills to make them successful in both Spanish and English. At the same time, they build social and emotional skills in working with peers and the maestras. Together these skills help open their minds and language capabilities. Teachers interact with the children to build strong academics and positive social skills.
