Water: Health Benefits for you and your child

Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 50% to 70% of yours and your child's body weight. Your body depends on water to survive.

Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work properly. For example, water:

- Gets rid of wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements

- Keeps your temperature normal

- Lubricates and cushions joints

- Protects sensitive tissues

Lack of water can lead to dehydration — a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions causing potential health problems over time.

Our First Blog Entry

At Childcare Nation we are devoted to nurturing our students through practical learning experiences. We are committed to the growth and success of children; we make sure they have proficient advancement skill as they develop their self-improvement skills. We help enable the children to think for themselves as we guide them to their path of success and development everyday.

Welcome to Childcare Nation

When it comes to sharing, we believe in starting the example at an early age by being role models for the children. We create make-believe games and practice using pocket timer play dates to exemplify the benefits of sharing. We use descriptive praise to show how happy it can make another child when the share.

The Importance of Educational Enrichment

We happily provide resources the children need for their personal creative expression. We allow children to have the freedom and autonomy to explore their own ideas and to creatively explore their imaginations. We encourage children to read for pleasure and participate in arts and crafts. By giving children the opportunity to express "divergent thoughts" they have the freedom to reflect on their projects and learn about themselves while having fun.
