When Your Child Comes Home Messy

Red paint in the hair? Blue paint on the jeans?

Sand in the shoes? Peanut butter on a favorite shirt?

White socks that look brown? Sleeves a bit damp?


YOUR CHILD PROBABLY......

worked with a friend
solved a problem
created a masterpiece
negotiated a difference
learned a new skill
had a great time
developed new language skills


YOUR CHILD PROBABLY DIDN'T.......

feel lonely
become bored
do repetitive tasks that are too babyish
do worksheets that are too easy
do sit down work that is discouraging


YOU PROBABLY......

paid good money for those clothes
Will have trouble getting the red paint out
are concerned the caregiver isn't paying enough attention to your child


YOUR CAREGIVER PROBABLY......

was aware of your child's special needs and interests
spent time planning a challenging activity for the children
encouraged the children to try new things
was worried you might be concerned


Young children really learn when they are actively involved in play.....not when someone is talking to them. There is a difference between "messy" and "lack of care." Your caregiver made sure your child was fed, warm, offered new skills and planned messy fun things to do because that's how young children learn!

Send your child in clothes that can get dirty! Keep extra old clothes at the site for times when the child gets really messy. But remember, young children need time to be kids.
