June Happenings at Parks
From Splash Day Fridays, to Donuts with Dad and Summer Camp. Parks’ Place has a lot of fun activities for the kids.
Research shows that all children benefit from the time they spend in positive interactions and activities with a dad or other male role models. The relationship between a father and his child has a deep impact on all areas of the child’s healthy development: language, thinking, physical, and social-emotional. Children with dads who are actively involved in their education have fewer discipline problems and perform better academically. These children grow up to be more responsible adults.
The Florida Department of Education(FLDOE) encourages dads to participate in Dads Take Your Child to School Day on September 25, 2019. Dads can take children of all ages to school. Dads, take a moment to speak to your child’s teacher.
Let your child see that you appreciate the people who work at their school. Your child is proud of you and will want to have teachers and other children see you at the school. In families without a dad present, other significant male role models are invited to participate. Although the event is focused on dads, mothers and other family members are invited to participate also. Check their the school’s websites and parent newsletters, or talk with your child’s teacher about special events planned for Dads Take Your Child to School Day.Download Newsletter PDF »

UNLIKE OTHER TO-DO LISTS, THIS ONE WILL BE FUN TO GET THROUGH. 1. Grow a flower. Guess the color it will turn out to be. Measure its progress. 2. Watch fireworks. Fire? In the sky? That makes beautiful shapes in pretty colors?! Before you’re old enough to understand the science of the thing, a fireworks display can seem like a miracle. & more…

Pumpkins are Due by Friday, October 26, 2018

Many kids love Halloween for the costumes, parties and of course candy. However, Halloween doesn’t need to be so focused on the candy. Introducing your child to new Halloween games is a great way to develop their imagination, playful spirit and bring more memories to the holiday.
