Read and Discuss Stories With the Adventure Squad

“The more we read with young children, the more prepared they become to enjoy reading and to do well in school. It is never too early to begin reading!”

The Adventure Squad Shows Us How to Explore Through Movement and Play

“Movement and play are good for children’s bodies—their coordination, strength, and overall health. They are also ways that children explore and learn about the world.”

The Adventure Squad Maximizes Love & Manages Stress!

“Infants thrive when their world seems loving, safe, and predictable. When you express love and respond to their needs, you teach them that they can count on you.” 

Talk, Sing and Point With the Adventure Squad

“As your child develops, talking with them and answering their questions is a way to teach them about the world. By talking with them, you will also get to know the fascinating person they are becoming!”

The Adventure Squad Shows Us How to Count, Group and Compare!

“You don’t need to be a math teacher to start preparing your child to be a problem solver. There are fun and simple activities that you can do now to build math and thinking skills.”
