Health Tips For Children This Spring

Can you believe that today is the first day of spring? We can't either! Even though Mother Nature is not cooperating today, warmer weather is just around the corner. Below are some tips to stay healthy this spring.

Dealing With Allergies
Ah-ah-ah-CHOO! If you hear this a lot come springtime, your child's allergies are flaring up. To keep allergies at bay, keep allergy medicine and tissues with you.

Fun In The Sun
When the weather is nice, children are more inclined to spend time outdoors. Even if it is not a particularly sunny day, your child should always wear sunscreen. There is absolutely no exception to this rule!

Creepy Crawlers
Spending time in the great outdoors will also expose your little ones to creepy crawlers. If your child gets an insect bite of some sort, be sure to clean it thoroughly. Children who experience heavy breathing, fainting or vomiting due to the bite should get medical help immediately.

Once the weather gets nice, we will be able to enjoy the outdoor facilities at Miss Sue's. We have a large, fenced-in and safe outdoor play area. It's fully equipped with swing, a climbing helicopter and boat, a giant sandbox, a state-of-the-art playground and a soccer field. All of this is specifically designed to encourage independence and improve muscular coordination. If this is the kind of facility you would like your child to attend, call 516-938-0894 today.

School Bus Safety

When you send your child to school in a bus from Miss Sue's, you can rest assured that they are in good hands. Below are some school bus safety tips to keep in mind.
  • Walk slowly and hold onto the railing when entering the bus.
  • Children should remain seated during the bus ride. 
  • Do not shout or talk loudly on the bus. It could distract the bus driver.
  • Before exiting the bus, make sure that you have all of your personal belongings with you. This could include a backpack or a lunch bag.
  • Wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before standing.
  • Walk and hold onto the railing when exiting the bus. You should never run when exiting the bus.
Transportation for your children to and from Miss Sue's is provided by vehicles owned and operated by the school. All of our drivers have a Commercial Drivers’ License.  We carry maximum insurance for each child. In addition, all buses are fully equipped with cell phones and seat belts. Each month, buses are inspected by a qualified bus mechanic. The New York State Department of Transportation independently inspects each vehicle three times a year as well. All of this is done to ensure your child's safety. If you are interested in enrolling your child at Miss Sue's Nursery School, call  516-938-0894 today.

The Benefits of Attending Nursery School

It has become a common practice to send children to nursery school--and with good reason. Young children process new information faster than any other time in their lives. Since they are soaking up information like a sponge during this age range, it is important to send them to the right nursery. Below are some of the benefits your children will reap from attending nursery school.

Social Interaction
It is extremely important for young children to interact with their peers. Children who attend nursery school learn not only from our wonderful teachers, but from each other as well. They learn how to behave and communicate effectively with others. At Miss Sue's, we encourage interaction with the use of fun and educational activities.

Preparation For A Bright Future
Did you know that children who do not attend nursery school are more likely to drop out of school? On the other hand, students who do attend nursery school feel more prepared to take on the demands of higher educational systems. A foundation in education from Miss Sue's will set your child up for a lifetime of achievements.

At Miss Sue's Nursery School, we go to great lengths to provide your children the best education available. That's why we have been voted the "Best Nursery School by the Long Island Press for the past six years! We invite you to visit our school and see our program in action. Please call us for an appointment or with any questions (24 hours/7 days a week) at 516-938-0894.

Healthy Lunch Ideas

Some children are naturally picker eaters. It can be especially difficult to prepare a healthy and delicious lunch for them. Below are some healthy lunches that children will love!

Bento Box Style
Treat small plastic containers like a small bento box for your child. Just fill it with their favorite vegetables or fruits. Viola! The perfect snack is served.

Mix It Up with Trail Mix
If your child likes raisins, this idea is sure to be a hit. Just pour some trail mix in a small container. Since trail mix is packed with protein, your toddler will have all the energy they need to take on the day.

Delicious Dips
Does your child like to munch on healthy dips like hummus or black-bean salsa? If so, pack the dip of choice with carrots, string beans or sticks of celery. Since they should not be sharing their snacks with others, they are free to double dip til their heart's content!

We hope that these lunches appeal to even the pickiest eater. If your child is ready for nursery school, choose Miss Sue's! We provide a safe environment, the best care, the best attention, the best education available and we definitely provide the most fun! Please call us for an appointment or with any questions (24 hours/7 days a week) at 516-938-0894.
