Do you follow Rachel Bailey? Not only is she local to our community, she’s a tremendous resource for parents. Her latest podcast episode, on teaching kids to think positively, is up today. Give her page a follow for a consistent stream of helpful tips and parenting tools!

Of course we want our kids to think more positively. Not only do we know the reasons that positive thinking is healthier, but let’s be honest, hearing constant negativity can be draining! Unfortunately, encouraging and reminding some kids to think more positively doesn’t seem to help. ⁣

In this episode, you’ll learn why certain kids are more resistant to thinking more positively. You’ll also learn how to respond effectively to their negativity and how to foster more resilience so you don’t have to address their moods so often in the moment. ⁣

We had such a great #DrSeussWeek we didn’t have a chance to post until today! 😜


The children (and staff!) had a great time celebrating St. Nicholas Day last week. After putting their shoes in the hall before rest time, the kids awoke to footwear filled with treats. Lots more fun on tap as we celebrate the holidays over the next couple weeks! 🎄🎅🏼⛄️🍊


So much to be #thankful for – even amid the challenges of 2020! We feel very blessed to have our classrooms and halls full of smiling faces, these extra-colorful bulletin boards and some “hidden” turkeys as great reminders of the bountiful joys of this season. Happy Thanksgiving from Vine & Branches Child Development Center!

Sometimes life is a circus 🎪 🤹‍♀️🎟 and sometimes it’s a ZOO 🦁🐯🐼🙈! This month we will jump, climb, tumble, and twirl our way through exploring circus animals, carnival games, and even desert safaris. So far we’ve:
✔️ Used pom poms in a math juggling craft
✔️ Graphed our favorite circus animals
✔️ Practiced leaping through hoops
✔️ Walked precarious tightropes
Stay tuned...more to come soon! 🎢🎡

Pond Life Activities - No Time For Flash Cards

It's been an exciting week at the center, where in addition to celebrating dads and grads, we've been learning all about POND LIFE! Ponds are home to tons of different kinds of life: ducks, turtles, fish, snakes, and bugs--even dragonflies, which can each eat up to 100 mosquitoes in one day! In some classes we even made our own pond water with potting soil, water, and fake plants, frogs, and bugs. WHOA. We've been busy but having so much fun. For more ideas, here's a link to some cool #pondlife activities. Have a great weekend! This past week my 2-3-year-old students had a blast playing in our simple frog pond, exploring sinking and floating as their hands splashed in the water. Want to see? Check it out on Instagram! Pond Life is a wonderful preschool theme because it explores animals that many of our students see out in....
