Articles In This Section:

Learning to Share  - This fact sheet will help you help children learn to share. Also, it will help you to understand young children and know what to expect from them. (Added June 17, 2000)

Making The Most of Outdoor Play - As I write this, snow is on the ground and the temperature is below freezing. However, the days are increasingly longer, a sure sign that spring will soon be here.

Creative Play Helps Children Grow! - Every child is born with creative potential, but this potential may be stifled if care is not taken to nurture and stimulate creativity. Creativity shows one's uniqueness. It is the individual saying: "I can be; I can do." Isn't this what we want for our children? (Added June 17, 2000)

Sensory Materials: More Than Playdough - Sensory materials are often goopy, messy things that children can't wait to get their hands into. They're what our moms told us not to play with. Any material that stimulates several senses, especially the sense of touch is considered a sensory material. (Added June 17, 2000)
