Making New Year's Goals for the Entire Family

Posted on 12-15-2015

When a new year begins, families and businesses will evaluate the past year and make new plans and goals for the new year. A new year provides an excellent opportunity for parents, children, and families to consider new ways to be more successful and effective. Working parents can take advantage of our Before and After School program giving their child fun and safe activities while parents are busy and working. You can also encourage your child to try new foods for the year by trying a new menu item prepared by the Kids ‘R’ Kids chef. With so many opportunities for new goals and experiences, many preschoolers, school-aged children and parents will enjoy making milestones in the new year.

Here are 3 ideas for making New Year’s goals for the entire family:

  • Create new learning goals for your children. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Wake Forest is your resource for this goal. Our curriculum is designed to grow along with your child and has excellent strategies for your new learning goals. Be sure to visit our ABCmouse website for fun ideas to take learning beyond the classroom. Also consider teaching your child how to prepare a new snack or treat at home and share with siblings. For more possibilities, determine how you can support your child’s learning during family time at home. Ask for a demonstration of a song, dance, and other fun ways your child is learning at school.
  • Set Fun Family Goals. Discuss personal goals with your family. What would you like to accomplish in the new year? What steps do you need to make in order to accomplish your goals? Ask each person in your family these questions and help them set small, achievable goals to get one step closer to success. Help your children with ideas such as keeping their bedroom clean, putting toys away daily, eating more fruit and vegetables, making a new snack, or becoming more active.
  • Make goal setting fun! Try not to be too serious. These are goals that will likely need to be adjusted to meet schedule and time demands. It takes time to change a habit. So be patient and watch your child grow and flourish through the Kids ‘R’ Kids of Wake Forest Programs and your own commitment at home.

As you set your goals, seek to get the entire family involved. The staff at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Wake Forest is also on board with you. We would love to hear about your goals for the new year and celebrate your child’s efforts. We are not like a daycare or childcare that simply watches over your child while you work. We are a learning academy with highly trained, quality teachers, a state-of-the-art facility, accredited programs, and a big heart for children. We love to see infants, toddlers, and preschoolers learning, creating, and growing in our nurturing and fun atmosphere. Contact us for more ideas for setting goals for your child.
