It is no secret that mothers are our first teachers. From kisses and cuddles to talking and walking, they are there with love and guidance. This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and we want to give a nod to all the moms rocking their newborns, singing the ABCs and cheering those first steps.
“Mothers have the great opportunity of becoming the most important teacher their child will ever have. The first three years of life is a time of rapid brain development and learning. A child who experiences quality conversations with mom and who is read to often, develops the language and cognitive skills necessary to be ready for success in school and beyond. Moms can not only help their child acquire these skills and knowledge, but can also inspire their child’s attitudes and feelings about themselves as learners which can have a powerful impact on later academic success!”
