Family holidays are essential for children’s development. The time your child has spent in a Montessori daycare may have improved their learning and social skills. However, family holidays are an opportunity for them to rest, play, and fully experience being a child who savors the attention and affection that they get from their parents.
Nowadays, a lot of grown-ups are always busy. Most of the time, they only go out with their child during weekends or in the evenings at dinner. When your child knows that holidays are coming up, they get excited because they know that their parents finally have freedom and space to interact with them.
Planning a holiday away from home is an excellent way to recharge with your loved ones, notably for your children. Get your little one involved with your holiday plans by asking them where they would like to go and what they would like to see. When you include them in the decision-making, it will surely jump-start your bonding before you leave for the trip.
Our Montessori school in Jessup, Maryland understands the value of family holidays. Our daycare programs also involve making parent-child holiday cards and other activities before the actual holidays start.
