The Importance of Sharing Holidays You Don't Celebrate in Preschool

Originally published November 2017

Do you wonder why Kids Konnect preschool introduces holidays you may not celebrate? When preschool teachers and parents teach children about holidays from a variety of cultures and beliefs, they are helping children to develop empathy and understanding for other people and ideas.

2020 in particular is serving us a Thanksgiving like we've never seen before. Families may not be able to join together like usual and traditions may need to wait until next year or happen over video calls. So this is a fantastic opportunity to teach children about the true meaning of Thanksgiving and open up the conversation to other holidays celebrated by their friends at preschool.

Here is why explaining various holidays to preschoolers is important.

10 Fun New Year’s Resolutions for Preschool Children (2019)


New Year’s Resolutions are an interesting way to start the year afresh. 2018 has been another busy year at our Kids Konnect preschools in
Oakland, Pacifica and San Mateo - we’ve even celebrated our 10th year. But how can your child get 2019 off to the best start?

Setting goals is an important part of your preschool child’s early development. Making commitments teaches children how to be responsible and creating resolutions together can be a great way to start good habits from a young age.

Try sitting down with your child and talking to them about how New Year can be an exciting time for growth and change. Letting your child come up with their own ideas is an opportunity for family bonding in a fun and exciting way.

Encourage your preschooler to set some resolutions and then evaluate the options to come up with the most specific and achievable choices. Remember to keep things positive too – challenges that start with “I am going to…” are much more positive than saying “I am going to stop…”

So, would you like some ideas to get started? Discover our pick of 10 fun New Year’s resolutions that are perfect for preschool children in 2019 below.
