Here at Yellow Brick Road Early Childhood Development Center, we know that there are countless lessons that parents work on with their children before they attend our daycare facility. Whether you’re looking for something to start working on with them or you’re curious as to which lessons can be taught before school, today’s blog is for you. Our team is going to go

Our last couple of blog posts have talked about ways to make the drop-off to daycare just a little bit easier, but those aren’t the only times where children can throw a tantrum. On the other end of the spectrum there are children that throw tantrums when they have to leave preschool, which can be equally as frustrating.
