Let's get physical
For children, getting physical doesn't necessarily mean structured exercise! Children develop social emotional, cognitive and large motor skills through play. Playing and moving stimulate their senses as they experience movement and action.
Being active is good for your heart, at any age!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day January 18
Martin Luther king Jr was born in Atlanta, GA on January 15, 1929. We honor MLK Jr. for his work as a civil rights activist and his leadership in non-violent protests to fight for the rights of all people. Take this holiday as an opportunity to talk to kids about fairness and equality. No matter what age children can be taught about kindness and treating everyone equally!
