According to scientific research, it is so crucial for parents to be engaged in their children’s activities and play. Why? The ability for parents to be involved in their children’s learning process motivates their children academically, socially, and physically. Not only that, the involvement engages parents to know what is going on in their children’s lives. At Bright Horizons at Jersey City, the center offers activities for both the parents and their children. The activities can include art and music festivals, fitness tip webinars, and parenting workshops.
The Bright Horizons Art Festival celebrates children’s artworks and engages families one night of fun activities such as fine art, music, movement/dance, theater, and culinary arts. In addition to the festival, the center offers free webinars for parents. These workshops highlight parenting skills in benefit of children’s academic and physical well beings. For example the Fitness Tips for Busy Families Webinar teaches parents to schedule children’s events and activities in addition to prioritize fitness and sports. Moreover, the webinar invites a special speaker to help families strengthen their relationships with their children. Getting Out of the House in the Morning Webinar is another great resource for parents to learn about the ways to improve morning routine.
No matter how busy you are as a parent, you should always be attentive to your child’s development either through attending online workshops or in person meetings with teachers. These online workshops will help you better educate your child and enhance the quality of life for your families. Furthermore if you have free time on the side, it is always good to schedule an appointment with a teacher who look after your child in the center because talking to the teacher will get you a better sense of how your child is doing!
