Tips For Solving Toy Overload

The weeks that follow Christmas are always some of the least organized for parents with kids.

You have all the toys your child had before, but now you have all sorts of new toys that you need to find a place for.

But what are you supposed to do? Get rid of all those old toys? Of course not! Your child still plays with some of them and there is no way you want to deal with a screaming little one that realized that the toy they haven’t played with in months but all of a sudden are looking for again has vanished. Talk about a meltdown. 

So what steps can you take to help get rid of the clutter and reclaim your home from the toy-pocalypse?

Instead of just stuffing things in a box and taking right to the garbage or local charity, take things in stages. 

  1. Identify the items that are broken or don’t work. They are easy targets as it is easy to explain to your child why you are getting rid of it and they likely haven’t played with it for a while anyway. Whether it is something that is really broken or might just need new batteries, it still is much easier to justify getting rid of a toy if it is hard to play with! You might be surprised how much broken stuff you actually have and it might put a pretty big dent into the mess. 
  2. Go to the bottom of the toy bin. Whether you have shelves or an actual box/bin, there is a reason these things have faded to the bottom. These toys are ones that haven’t been touched in quite some time and will likely go unnoticed. However, don’t just race off to your favorite local Kenosha charity. Put these items in a box or container and store them somewhere for a few months. This will give you that nice little buffer in the case “Mom, where is my favorite toy?” question comes up. Don’t let your child see where you get that item, however. Just chalk it up to “Mom Magic” and move on from there!
  3. Get your child involved. After a few months, you will have a good idea as to what items are ready to be shipped off! I know… it probably seems crazy to bring your child into the process at this point, but we think it’s an important step. Bring up the toys you have stored away and explain to them that there are other little boys and girls that would love to play with their old toys. Let them rummage through and pick out one more item they get to keep and bring them along to donate the rest. It is such a beautiful lesson in sharing and caring for your child to experience kindness and sharing. Some children might not take this lesson very well at first, but over time, they will start to see how important it is to be kind to others and share their things. 

While this process is clearly good for the parents to get some order back to the house, it is actually beneficial to the child as well. Studies show that fewer toys actually raises the quality of play among toddlers. Fewer toys give them less distraction and allow them to focus on one thing at a time!

Hopefully, these tips will help you get everything back in order and allow your child to have an overall better play! 

Potty training tips for toddlers

Potty Training Tips For Toddlers From A Daycare

Where did the time go? It feels like just yesterday you were figuring out how to change a diaper and now your child is ready to ditch them altogether to start the potty training process.

Parents typically start the potty training process somewhere between 2 and 3 years old. That is the time that your child is old enough to communicate that they need to go and understand what going on the potty means. 

But potty training is far from an easy task. Some children take to it right away without much of an issue at all, while others take a lot of time! If you and your child are having a little trouble, here are some tips that might make potty training a little easier.

Figure out what motivates your child. 

Just like how every child takes to potty training in their own time, every child is motivated by something a little different. There are the obvious motivators like candy or toys, but some children won’t respond to those types of rewards. Instead, your child might just want gold stars, some words of encouragement, or even to be just like mommy and daddy. 

It is important for you as a parent to identify these motivators and use them in this process. Try to incorporate whatever your child is into (whether it be dinosaurs, princesses, or superheroes) into the process and make adjustments as their interests change… which we all know could happen at a moment’s notice! 

Dress them in clothes that allow you quick access.

Even us adults struggle sometimes with complicated belts and buttons on our pants! 

During potty training, timing is incredibly important. Right out of the gate, your child might not be able to communicate to you that they need to go until they are right on the brink. Because of this, always dressing them in easy to remove clothes, like sweatpants, makes it easier to get on the toilet quickly! Don’t worry, you can put your child back in those cute little jeans in a few weeks.

If you are met with total resistance, don’t force it.

One mistake that a lot of parents make is trying to force their kids into potty training when they aren’t ready. You might look around and see other kids the same age as your child that are potty trained and think that your child is lagging behind but they aren’t. That’s a totally normal feeling and we understand it is frustrating, but sometimes the child just simply isn’t ready. 

If you are met with a little bit of fighting, go ahead and proceed, but if you are finding yourself with a screaming toddler on the toilet with no way to calm them down, it might be a signal that they just aren’t ready and you might need to wait another week or two before starting back up again. Trying to force the situation is just setting yourself up for a long, frustrating and difficult battle.

Ready your patience, and remove the nagging.

As you can see, patience is a big theme throughout this article. Trust us when we say that this can be one of the more frustrating things you are going to go through as a parent and some days it is going to take every bit of your patience.

One thing that often comes with that frustration is nagging. Wet diapers and underwear are going to leave you in a position where you feel like you have to ask your child every few minutes “Do you have to go?” The problem is the more you ask, the more you are going to get a hard “no”. Resist the urge to nag and just try your best to identify signs that your toddler has to go and try your best to keep them on a normal schedule of trying. Eventually, they will learn to communicate their needs to you! 

Most daycares (including us) require that children are potty trained by a certain age. While this might seem like you need to start this process right away and that if your child doesn’t grasp it immediately you are failing. It really varies greatly from child to child when and how quickly potty training takes.

Hopefully, these tips will help the process go a little easier and allow you to attack this new challenge together!

Indoor Winter Activities For Kids To Burn Off Energy

It’s pretty easy for kids to get a little stir crazy during the harsh winters here in Kenosha. 

All kids want to do is go outside and burn off some of that cooped up energy, but layering them up in hats, gloves, sweaters, coats, and boots for them to go out and play in the snow is quite the process.

Not only that but can we talk about the amount of laundry and cleaning up required after all the outside fun is done? 

Long story short, I think we can all agree that going outside to play is a process.

But what’s the alternative? There are only so many art projects and activities that you can do indoors before you run out of ideas, and you don’t want them to sit their butt down in front of a TV all day.

So that leaves you with one option, try to find some activities to do indoors that will both exercise your child’s mind, and burn off some of that crazy amount of energy.

Here are some great indoor winter activities!

1. Play a Game of “Floor Is Lava”

One of everyone’s favorite games as a kid! Instead of letting your child just go around the house however they want, declare that the “floor is lava” for a while. This means your child can’t touch the ground and has to find creative ways to get from point A to point B around the house. Now, you are going to want to set some ground rules for this game so your little one isn’t trying to make a massive leap from the couch to the coffee table, but after that, your child will have to use both their brain and muscles to manage their way around. A great way to get someone tired!

*Parental supervision recommended 

2. Set up an indoor scavenger hunt

Another way to use the space in your home to your advantage is to create a scavenger hunt. Leave a series of clues around the house that link together with some kind of prize at the end. Make the clues little riddles so your little one has to think about where the next step in the process might be and figure out the giant puzzle. Extra credit if you set up challenges at each clue, like doing jumping jacks, for that little extra energy usage. If done right, your child will be actively moving around the house all day!

3. Have an indoor camping trip!

Who doesn’t love a little camping? While setting up a tent outside in subzero temperatures is probably not a good idea, pitching one in your living room or basement can be! Have your child help you prepare your “campsite” by putting up the tent, starting your fireplace, roasting marshmallows over the stove, and you can even set up stuffed animals around the house to go on a nature hike! Your camping trip is really only limited to where you and your child’s imagination can take you! 

4. Set up your own ninja warrior course.

A favorite show in many households is American Ninja Warrior. While your child might not be able to run up a warped wall or climb up Mt. Madoriama, they can complete little obstacles you set up around the house. Work together to set up your course and get out your phone timer to see how fast they can complete it. After a few laps of trying to improve their time, switch it up and try some new challenges. You will be shocked how exhausted your child will be after just a little bit of time racing against the clock! 

*Parental supervision recommended 

Which one of these is your favorite? Do you have another activity that you love doing?

Reasons for part-time parents to send their child to daycare

Why Stay-At-Home Parents Should Send Their Children To Daycare

Getting to spend tons of time with your children as a stay-at-home parent is a true blessing. You get to be involved in every part of the process and watch as they grow, achieve new things, and best of all, you get to do it all in the safety of your home.

While most of the kids that come to cornerstone academy have working parents, you would be surprised how many stay-at-home parents bring their kids to daycare for even a half-day a few times per week. 

Why would stay-at-home parents bring their kids to daycare?

Socialization with other children

While we are sure your child loves interacting with you all day, there is nothing like getting them into a room full of their peers to really let their personalities come through. Building strong social skills, creating friendships, learning to share and learning how to work through interaction is essential to the development and research shows that children with strong social skills are more likely to thrive as adults.

Get to do activities that they don’t get to do at home (and you don’t have to clean up after!)

Don’t get us wrong, you are probably full of fun activities to do with your kids to help them learn, but there are limitations to what you can do. By sending your child to a daycare a few times per week, they can discover new things that they would not have been able to experience before. We take the kids on field trips, bring in special guests like firefighters and magicians, and even host a holiday concert and thanksgiving meal! The best part? Because we are handling the fun, we handle all the messes that come with them too! 

Sometimes… You need a little break too

Being a stay-at-home parent is a full-time job and just like any other job, sometimes YOU need a break. Sending your child to daycare part-time is a great way for your child to get lots of new experiences while allowing you to get some things done without distraction and even spend some time to yourself. Giving yourself a little time to do something for you and coming back refreshed can make you much happier and allows you to be a better parent! 

Gets them familiarized with school routines

Especially as children get closer to school age, getting them familiarized with a school routine can make the process a lot easier on both you and them on day one. It is important to expose them to the structure of a classroom, how to follow directions from a teacher, and what it is like to not have a parent around. Even just a little exposure to this process, will set your child up on the right path and give them a headstart when they start their first day of school

If you are interested in having your child join us part-time, we would love to talk to you! Make sure to reach out and stop by for a tour anytime – We would love to meet you!

Fun fall activities for families in Kenosha

Fun Fall Activities For Families in Kenosha

Fall has officially arrived! 

While we might be saying goodbye to our swimsuits and beach days, fall in Kenosha, Wisconsin is our favorite time of year! The weather is cooler, the trees turn beautiful colors, and the kids have weekends to have some fun and try new things with their families!

Being a daycare in Kenosha, we are pretty in tune with some of the awesome things to do around the city. We are always looking for new things for the kiddos to experience and help their inquiring minds.

There will be students and faculty available to answer your questions and show off all their amazing equipment. The perfect event for the little one with a BIG imagination!

The Cornerstone Curriculum

The Cornerstone Curriculum: The Best of Both Worlds

While you are looking for preschool and 4k programs in the Kenosha and Racine areas, one of the biggest questions you should be asking is what type of curriculum is used to help your children learn. 

Now, there are tons of different pre-made curriculums and programs out there that childcare centers use, but they really boil down into two main types – play-based and academic.

But we do things a little differently here at Cornerstone. While other centers use pre-created programs that fit into one of these two types, we have our own curriculum that blends both academic and play-based learning! 

So what are the difference between academic and play-based learning and how did we take the best of both worlds to make the Cornerstone Curriculum? I’m glad you asked!

Academic Learning

Academic learning uses much more traditional methods to help children learn during the day. Activities are very structured and lesson plans are created to keep children on track and in a routine. Days are very planned with specific times for certain activities and lessons making it much more like a normal schooling environment, making the transition to kindergarten a little easier.  

Lessons are what you would typically expect to see in a classroom. Shapes, colors, letters are all taught on a regular basis with children completing activities like worksheets and art projects to help enforce the learning. The care providers are very focused on children hitting “markers” for their learning and while there is not testing per se, their attention is given to make sure children aren’t being left behind.

While the structure and the preparation for more advanced learning are clear pros, the cons are many children get less social interaction with their peers and can cause children to become frustrated with learning and education early on.

Play-Based Learning

Play-based learning is on the other end of the learning spectrum. Instead of highly structured lesson plans, learning happens using activities that are much more fun and active. Instead of sitting down and reciting ABCs over and over, for example, children will draw farm animals and associate the letters of the alphabet with the characters.

In a play-based environment, teachers are seen less as lecturers and more like facilitators of learning. They let children explore and try new things on their own while adding extra learning into their everyday discoveries. Themes are much more important than topics in this environment. Instead of a lesson around colors, a classroom might be learning about planets instead. Within that lesson, they will learn that Mars is red and Earth is blue, reaching the same objective in a different way.

The cons of this learning style are simply that they are different from what they will experience when they move into kindergarten. Research shows that children who learn in this environment tend to struggle a bit when first moving up, but almost 100% of the time, they acclimate to their new environment in the first month or so.

The Cornerstone Curriculum

What happens when you take the best of both play-based and academic learning? You get the Cornerstone Curriculum. We are the only daycare in Kenosha that has developed its own curriculum because we believe your child deserves the best. 

We focus both succeeding inside the classroom and outside in the world. We put an emphasis on lessons like tying shoes and zipping up a coat in order to help your child find their independence and strive to learn more and more. Doing this in combination with very structured lessons and learning goals gives the balance of learning found nowhere else. Making the education they receive at Cornerstone fun and impactful is our ultimate goal!

At the end of the day, we want your child to learn so much more than their ABCs and we want them to LOVE the process of learning those things. Our goal is to not just help them learn things that will help them today, but set them up for success as they move up to the next stage of their education

That is the Cornerstone Way!

Back to School Tips!

The back-to-school season is here! If you are like most parents, you are running around like a crazy person trying to make sure your child has every ruler, pencil, and watercolor set that they need to have another great year!

While this is an exciting time for your kids, let’s be honest, it is an exciting time for you as well! You know the kids are at a safe place where they are doing a ton of learning throughout the day and you no longer have to figure out how to entertain them! 

But I think you know as well as we do that going back to school isn’t always a fun process out of the gate. Getting your kids out of the summer groove and back into early mornings and homework is far from easy, but it might be a little easier this year with these back to school tips!

1) Start the new routine now!

Early to bed early to rise! Start living by this rule now in order to make the first day of school a little easier. Go through the whole routine: Wake up, eat breakfast, get ready and dressed for the day, and do whatever else will they be doing on their first day of school. At night, it’s time to enforce bedtimes a little more strictly. Easing them into the start of the year will make for a better and far less stressful first day of school!

2) Involve them in school supply shopping! 

It would be much easier to just go to the store with your school-provided list of supplies and get out as fast as possible, but this can also be a beneficial step in getting everyone excited for school. By letting your kids pick out their own folders and pens, it lets them feel like they have some level of control. You can talk about all the fun things they are going to learn and projects they get to work on, and also spend a little time together before that first school bell rings. 

3) Schedule playdates with classmates they haven’t seen in a while

Often times, our summers get so busy with vacations and family commitments, you’re kids may have not seen their “school friends” in some time. This can make the first day a little difficult because your kids might feel like they have to start all over again with those connections. Getting together with other parents and planning some fun activities together can make the social aspect of school a little less scary and make kids a little more comfortable 

4) Have open conversations about how your child is feeling

Are they excited? Nervous? Stressed? Your child will probably feel all of these emotions at some point leading up to the school year. This is completely NORMAL and it’s important to always have an idea of where they stand. If they are nervous or stressed, you can take action and try some little things to change their mood. If they are excited, you can feed off that excitement and try and do some little things that prep them for a year of learning. Again, these moods can change day-to-day so it’s important to check-in often and adjust accordingly.

To a young child, heading back to school after a summer fun is a HUGE shift. Their schedules, the people they are around, and what they think about all change. Think back to when you were a kid, I’m sure you remember feeling all kinds of emotions leading up to the first day of school. By starting early and using these tips, you can help control those emotions and make back to school a fun process for everyone!

5 Steps to Picking a Daycare When You Are Expecting

Congratulations! You’re expecting! 

Having a child is the greatest joy that anyone can ever experience, but there is a lot to get done in the time between finding out and welcoming him/her into the world. 

One of the items on your list is surely finding a daycare provider. Many daycares in Kenosha accept applications months and months in advance so it can be stressful to try and find the place that is the best for you and reserve your spot. 

But where do you start? How do you go through the process of finding daycare and making sure it is the right decision?

Step #1 – Gather a list of all the possibilities

The best way to start on the process of finding a good daycare is to take a look at all your possibilities. The truth is that there is a TON of options when it comes to childcare. For example, a simple search for “Daycares in Kenosha” will give you 20+ different options. Even though that might seem overwhelming, it’s a great place to start in deciding who is out there in the world and what your options will look like. 

Step #2 – Talk to friends and family

One common thing people say about having kids is that everyone has an opinion – and let us tell you it’s not a myth. While people will give you all kinds of parenting tips that you are going to want to let go of, daycare advice is a great thing to seek out. Ask friends, family, coworkers, or anyone else you meet about what they did for daycare. Where did they go? What did they like? Not like? What types of questions did they ask? All those answers are going to help you start to narrow down your list, or discover new places that you didn’t know existed before.

Step #3 – Get down to your top 3 or 4

Now that you have a nice big list of all the childcare providers around Kenosha and you have gotten some recommendations, it is time to narrow down your list. Look at which ones are not close to your work or home and remove them from the list. Check out their pricing and see who is in your price range. You will be surprised how quickly your list will go from 15 or 20 locations to only 3 or 4 that are the best of the best.

Step #4 – Schedule Tours

Tours are the most important part of the process of finding a daycare facility. A tour will give you a good idea of what your child will experience every single day and allow you to gather a good gut feeling about each location. Most places want you to call ahead and schedule a time so they can prepare for you to come. We do things a little different at Cornerstone, we want you to see us during a normal day without any extra preparations which is why we allow new parents to stop at any time to take a tour! 

Come prepared with even your most outrageous question so that every concern can be answered. The more questions you ask, the better understanding you will get for each place and how they approach care.

Step #5 – Use a Pro/Con List

You have all the information and you have seen every location. The final step is to take all that information and create a pro and con list for each. Divide a piece of paper in half and list out the best features on the left and the drawbacks on the right. Decide which place has the best location, most reasonable price, and even rank your overall gut feeling of each location to help come to your decision. If you still can’t decide, never be afraid to book another tour and gather even more information. Ultimately you will come to a decision that is best for you and your little one!

The process of finding a daycare can be a very stressful one. You only want to give your child the best, and selecting a daycare is the first big decision you are making that will directly affect your child’s life. If you allow yourself to gather all the information and trust your gut, you will know what the right facility for you will be!

Planning the Best Beach Day in Kenosha

Planning the Best Beach Day in Kenosha

One of the most underrated parts about growing up in Kenosha has to be the access to so many great beaches like Simmons Island Beach, Eichelman Park, and Wolfenbuttal Park.

With the temps starting to rise and the sun starting to shine, you and your child are probably gearing up for a little fun in the sun, but a day at the beach isn’t going to be a walk in the park.

Many parents stay away from the beach because they know what is coming next. Lost items, wet children, and sand…. So much sand. So how can you make beach day the best experience for both you and your child?  Here are some of our favorite tips and hacks on:

Planning the Best Beach Day in Kenosha

Use a fitted sheet as a “play area”.

This viral hack is an ABSOLUTE must especially with young children. Sick of your towels getting all full of sand and blowing away? Bring a fitted sheet and create a “playpen”. You can use your bag, toys, cooler, and whatever you brought with you for your trip to hold up the corners. This will keep all your things contained and make a nice spot for kids to play when they have had enough sand.

You can even bring your own kiddy pool!

Another way to take this up a notch is to bring your own inflatable pool! You can pick them up from Walmart and other stores for under $10 and give your child a place to splash around without the risk of playing in the waves. You can simply use some lake water and fill it up! Just make sure you pay attention in case there are any accidents and change the water out if it happens!

Freeze your drinks the night before.

It is always a bummer when you haven’t been out for long and all the ice in your cooler has melted and your drinks are warm. The night before, make sure to freeze all your bottles of water, juice boxes, and other beverages so they are nice and cold all day! You will be able to drink whenever you are thirsty…

And you can use them to keep some washcloths cold!

As you are grabbing all the food and drinks for the day, throw in a few washcloths as well. These will come in SUPER handy for when your child is starting to look a little warm and needs to cool off a bit. A few wipes on the forehead and back of the neck can go a long way in keeping your little one cool and comfortable. And if your little one has allergies, here are some tips for preparing for that!

While you’re at it, put the sunscreen in the cooler too!

We all know the importance of sunscreen, but have you ever thought to put yours in the cooler? That’s right! Keep that sunscreen nice and cold. Not only will you be helping protect your child’s skin from the sun, but you will also be keeping their body temperature down.

Keep it simple when it comes to toys!

The beach is full of new things to touch, see, hear, and, let’s be honest, taste. You are going to be tempted to load up on the toys and bring all the favorites, but really just the simple shovel and bucket and a few balls should be more than enough! The simpler, the better for you!

So what do you think? Are you going to go out and enjoy all the Kenosha beaches this summer? What are your favorite places to go? We hope these tips make those trips much less stressful and a whole lot more FUN!
