November 8th. Preschool Showcase (Pg. 5) December 6th. Holiday Concert (pg. 4) The Milford Family Resource School 466 West River Street Milford, CT (203) Come Join us at Playgroups.for fun and so much more! The Milford Family Resource Center at the Mathewson Elementary School will be starting their weekly playgroups on September 15. The mission of the Milford Family Resource Center is to provide the information, support, and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life. One way this information, support and encouragement is offered is through playgroup. A key distinguishing feature of the Family Resource Center playgroups is their facilitation by certified parent educators with qualifications and experience in early childhood and working with families with children. The playgroups create opportunities for relationships to be enhanced between parents and their children, and parents with other parents. Parent educators will provide advice and information on parenting issues using the Parents As Teachers research based on early childhood information. Information about the Connecticut Early Learning Development Standards is discussed and distributed to all parents. In addition referrals and information about Birth to Three and the special education program of the Milford Public Schools are available, as well as information about preparing children for preschool and how to access other sources of support in the community. The playgroups are based on the age of the children. Currently there are eight playgroups: one Infant Playgroup (Mondays), two Young Toddler Playgroups (Tuesdays) two Toddler Playgroups (Wednesday), one Toddler Playgroup (Thursday), and two Preschool Playgroups (Friday). The parent educators also provide parents the opportunity for personal visits to discuss the specific development of their children. The personal visits often take place at the Family Resource Center as well as at the family s home. During the years between birth and kindergarten there are important times when specific kinds of learning must take place for children to develop to the fullest. The Milford Family Resource Center can help you to capture those windows of opportunity so your child starts school ready to learn. If you would like to join a playgroup or if you would like a personal visit, please feel welcome to call us at or at Milford Family Resource Center Staff:: Program Manager: Peggy Kelly Parent Educators: Kathy Aspinwall Judy Lobdell Anne Mundy The groups that still have openings are as follows: Monday 9:30-10:30 Infants (up to 1 year) Tuesday 9:30-10:30 or 10:45-11:45 Young Toddlers (1-2 year olds) Wednesday 10:45-11:45 Toddlers (2-3 year olds) Thursday 9:30-10:30 Toddlers (2-3 year olds) Friday 10:45-11:45 Preschoolers (3-5)

2 In spite of their many advances, preschoolers can be illogical, egocentric, and one-dimensional in their thinking," observe Heather Tomlinson and Marilou Hyson in Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs Serving Children from Birth through Age Eight. Piaget referred to these years as a 'preoperational' stage of development, emphasizing that children ages 2 to 7 are less capable in their thinking compared with older children. More recent research indicates that preschoolers have greater cognitive abilities than has been sometimes assumed, at least when children are in familiar situations and tasks are clearly explained to them." "Preschool children can appear to know or understand more or less than they actually do. At times they seem mature and relatively advanced in their thinking, and then later seem limited and inflexible. As preschoolers move from and between simpler to more complex thinking skills, it is helpful to remember that they are not merely functioning less effectively than older children or adults; their narrow focus on a limited amount of information at any given time is actually useful while they are learning so many things so rapidly. That is, because they are just on the cusp of grasping a variety of concepts, words, and skills at a new level, they learn best when they can attend to just one thing at a time... rather than attending to multiple things." Article from Everyday Exchange June 2014 Cognitive Skills of Preschoolers A preschooler s brain is more than twice as active as an adult s brain. This allows them to process and retain new information quickly. (from CHDI.org) If you are looking for some fun fall things to do, these orchards offer a variety of fruits to pick. *Silverman s Farms Easton, Ct. *Bishop s Orchards Guilford, Ct. *Lyman s Orchards Middlefield, Ct.

3 Cognition Making sense of the world, staying with something and working hard to solve problems What adults can do... Encourage Exploring Asking Questions and Making Choices Pretending and Having Fun Remembering Trying New and Difficult Things Infants and Toddlers Pretend with your child. Pretend a banana is a phone or feed a doll. Give your child choices. Let your child choose a snack or what to wear. Give your child lots of different experiences. Explore your neighborhood parks, libraries and museums. Play with things that are used in different ways (to make sounds, build, etc.) Show your baby how things work. Look at how the car rolls. Play games that involve back-and-forth. As your child gets older, help them wait for a short time Preschoolers Use everyday routines to notice patterns. Point out familiar routines (first we wash hands, then we eat). Sort and categorize throughout the day. Picking up toys and laundry are great sorting activities. Wonder with your child. I wonder if it s going to rain today. Encourage your child to ask questions. Point out and use symbols. Encourage your child to recognize and name signs and symbols. Support your child to finish things they start. Help them plan and stick with things for longer periods of time.

4 Physical Health & Development Learning to take care of yourself and to do things with your body and hands so that you grow strong and healthy What adults can do... Encourage Healthy Eating Physical Activity Helping with Self-care Infants and Toddlers Lay your baby on their tummy while they are awake. Tummy time helps build strong muscles. Talk while you take care of them. Have them be a part of healthy routines such as waking up, eating and dressing. Encourage exploring objects with their hands. Give them small, but safe, items to use with their hands. Make sure they are healthy. Children who get enough rest and healthy food learn better. Preschoolers Find a time and place for your child to run and play. Running, jumping and climbing help build strong muscles and bones. Have your child take part in self-care. Talk to them about why being clean is important; show them how to use buttons and zippers, etc. Offer your child healthy food choices. Talk about healthy food and eating a variety of good things. Make sure they get enough rest. Preschoolers need hours of sleep each day to stay healthy and learn

If you would like to attend the Kiwanis Holiday Gathering or if you would like to contribute to Keeping Milford Warm, visit: ************************ Milford Parent Leadership Training Institute is accepting applications for its annual 18 week class designed to teach parents how to find their voice, become lifelong agents of change and make the Milford community the best it can be for our children. The new session begins in January, 2015 This is a collaborative project by the Milford health Department, the United Way of Milford and Kids Count of Milford. Who Benefits from PLTI? Parents, children and communities benefit from PLTI. Parents gain self-confidence using their skills as change agents within the community. Children benefit when parents participate more in their lives as advocates and decision makers. Communities benefit as parents use their tools to inform and advocate.
