Combine activities with books

Summer leaves lots of time for kids to enjoy fun activities, such as going to the park, seeing a movie, or going to the beach.  Why not also encourage them to read a book about the activity?  If you're going to a baseball game, suggest that your child read a book about a favorite player beforehand.  In the car or over a hot dog, you'll have lots of time to talk about the book and the game.

Visit the library

If your child doesn't have a library card, summer is a great time to sign up for one.  In addition to a wide selection of books to borrow, many libraries have fun, child-friendly summer reading programs.

Have plenty of reading material around.

Storybooks aren't the only thing that kids can read for fun.  Be sure to have newspapers, magazines, and informational material on hand that might spark the interest of a young reader.

Beginning Tuesday, June 19th and alternating each week between School Age and VPK groups we will have a special visitor every Tuesday for the summer. We have partnered with the University of Florida IFAS Extension and our students will learn about nutrition through interactive lessons, physical activity, taste tests, science experiments and computer-based nutrition program


Nancy Mathis, Advertising Specialist, with Lee Tran will visit us on June 13th to speak to VPK/School Age children about riding Lee Tran.  Nancy will talk to the children about the bus, where the bus goes, rules, etc.  Her presentation is very “kid” friendly and Nancy will bring a photo of the bus and bus stop sign.  She will also provide to the children a Lee Tran discount ID card which would allow them to ride the bus for half price until they graduate high school.  There is no charge to process the ID.  A letter will be sent home to the parents to initiate receiving an ID for their child.  For parents who ride the bus with their children already this is a great opportunity for your children to ride for half the fee.
