Parent Organization Activities

Everyone had a great time at the Fall Festival on the CDRC playground. The parent organization made $380 with the raffle. CDRC would like to thank everyone involved in the planning of the event and those who helped that evening. The Parent Organization Meeting will be Thursday November 6 and December 4th from 5-6. Child Care will be provided

Conscious Discipline 

The Conscious Discipline Seminar will be held on Thursday November 20th and December 11th from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. Child Care will be provided.
3 Tools for Time Management 
1. Create a predictable routine and show it in pictures. Go over this visual routine often! (There are many examples of visual routines on Pinterest.)
2. Talk about how long something will take to do. Children don't really understand time until second grade. With younger ones, refer to blocks of time that they are familiar with such as lunch time, snack time, reading time, etc. 
Here is an example: We just finished story time. Now, we will be working in centers until snack time.
3. Make picture calendars and schedules for children. Regularly, go over what they did, what they are doing, and what will happen next. 


As always, we wish you well!
