3 steps to quality summer child care for your child

3 steps to quality summer child care for your child

If you have a school-age child, finding summer child care can be a real challenge. But you can follow these three simple steps to help you choose a program that's best for your family. It will mean a summer full of fun and learning for your child—and peace of mind for you.

On the road again—how to keep your cyclist safe

On the road again—how to keep your cyclist safe

Here are some tips you can review with your child to ensure bike season gets off to a great start:

The right fit

  • children should be able to straddle the bike with both feet on the ground
  • a bike that is too big or too small can be a safety hazard
  • the helmet should fit—if it's too loose, it could fall off, if it's too tight, it's uncomfortable

Get noticed

  • a young child's bike should be equipped with a bell and reflector
  • older riders should have a light and/or reflectors

Follow the rules

  • no riding on busy streets
  • no riding at night
  • stop for all STOP signs

Actions that cause injuries

  • driveway ride out—not stopping and looking both ways before entering the street
  • running the stop sign
  • turning without warning
  • cycling in the dark
  • following the leader—one child goes through a stop sign or misses a parked car but the second cyclist doesn't
Preparing for the summer sun

Preparing for the summer sun

Excessive exposure to the sun can lead to health concerns such as sunburn and skin cancer. As summer approaches and the weather gets warmer, it is necessary to apply sunscreen to protect ourselves from too much sun damage and burns.

In summer, we are exposed to higher levels of ultraviolet (UV) rays. This exposure is a risk factor for developing skin cancer and cataracts later in life. The UV index is the measure commonly used in Canada to assess the strength of the sun's UV rays risk on a given day.

 

Summer activities that boost learning

Summer activities that boost learning

Kindergarten to grade 4

Sorting and stacking – Teach classification skills with dinnerware. Ask your child to match and stack dishes of similar sizes and shapes. Also have your child sort flatware – forks with forks, spoons with spoons. This is like recognizing the shapes of letters and numbers.

Comic strip writing – Use comic strips to help with writing. Cut the segments of a comic strip apart and ask your child to arrange them in order. Then ask your child to fill in the words of the characters (orally or in writing).

Float and sink – Encourage hypothesizing (guessing). Use several objects – soap, a dry sock, a bottle of shampoo, a wet sponge, an empty bottle. Ask your child which objects will float when dropped into water in a sink or bathtub. Then drop the objects in the water, one by one, to see what happens.
