A Message From Our Director

Dear Amaryllis Community,

As we wrap up our shortest month of the year I hope you all found ways to celebrate Black History Month. I also hope that anyone born on Leap Day will have a great celebration on their actual birthday this year! Spring and Daylight Savings are right around the corner and Amaryllis is already planning for summer with our summer groups. Check them out below. Please remember to reschedule your appointment(s) if you will be out of town for spring break.

Brain-Building Through Play:

Activities for Infants, Toddlers, and Children

(From the Center on the Developing Child - Harvard University)

From infancy on, play is an important part of a child’s life. For babies and toddlers, simple, playful interactions with adults help develop sturdy brain architecture, the foundations of lifelong health, and the building blocks of resilience. Through games and playful activities, children can practice and strengthen important executive function skills that will help them throughout their lives, including learning to focus their attention, strengthening their working memory, and developing basic self-control. The following handout series, developed with support from the LEGO Foundation, provides suggestions games and play-based activities based on a child’s age. The activities for younger children are designed for adults to engage in with children. Activities for later ages allow the adults to step back, enabling children’s independence to blossom as they transition to playing more often with peers.
