Welcome to our Community Page!
We are a community of educators and parents who are passionate about early education and the quality of children's experience.
We all want our children to become independent, strong, and caring adults. This, however, is no easy task; building resilience in our children takes work and should be started as early as possible.
Our little ones don't have to wait to learn about money any longer! Did you know that the United States only has 17 states that mandate a personal finance class in high school?
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. It is so much more than giving and receiving candy (however, chocolate is always appreciated). It is the perfect holiday to teach our children about unconditional love, teamwork, and showing appreciation to those we care about.
Reading to your little one provides more than just an opportunity to bond, it is vital to their development and later success in life.
Last Saturday, we traveled around the world for our Global Readiness Workshop! Children ages 3-8 joined us for a trip to learn about other countries’ customs and traditions on celebrating birthdays. Along with our Dearest educators, they visited China, South Africa, and Mexico for an immersive, multicultural experience!
In the Dearest Math Curriculum, a new set of activities will be sent to you electronically every week that include easy-to-follow instructions, materials, and tips that focus on Early Numeracy.
Little ones can get easily excited at the first sight of snow. Despite how hard they try, no child can spend a full day outside playing in the cold weather. Here are a few activities that can be done indoors that still involve snow without actually having to step foot on it!
As teachers and parents, we tend to put a lot of focus and energy on academics. We want to make sure that our children are learning basic math and literacy skills. But, teaching the whole child actually goes beyond those fundamental concepts.
We hosted another Lunch and Learn for parents with 1 to 5-year-olds and this time, we brought it to Midtown East! It’s always a fantastic time for us to share more about Singapore Math, the Dearest Math curriculum, and how Dearest sessions can promote the student's development.
We attended a seminar by Dr. Denise Clark Pope at The Chapin School. Dr. Pope is a senior lecturer at Stanford Graduate School of Education and founder of Challenge Success.
