From all of us at Children Today, thank you IKEA Carson for investing so much time and effort, and so many resources into this IKEA Life Improvement Challenge week. We thought we were getting a redecorated lobby. We got that, and so much more!
What a beautiful, cheerful and welcoming space! It's just how we want to greet our families and guests.
It's Christmas in July, folks. Our new best friends at IKEA Carson just asked the teaching staff what other things they needed in their classrooms and then came back with - basically - all of those things.
I could go on.
Stay tuned for even more wonderful things from IKEA as our Life Improvement Challenge week continues.
Back in April, we won the IKEA Life Improvement Challenge to make over a space in our beautiful Eco House facility (thanks to all of you who voted for us)!
This week, our new friends from IKEA Carson have come out in force to build furniture, decorate our lobby, and provide us with storage solutions for our offices and classrooms.
We are so excited to have IKEA Carson working with us this week and can't wait to see the finished product! We'll keep you posted!
International Mud Day!
By Tondra Gardner
What better way to kick off our first summer in our new child care facility than with...
The World Forum Nature Action Collaborative for Children introduced International Mud Day back in 2011 in order to bring awareness to the growing need to connect young children with nature. Children Today joined the celebration by providing a variety of mud experiences to engage the infants, toddlers, and preschool children at their various stages of development.
It was an amazing day of discovery, math, and science as our children were provided the opportunity to experience that…Dirt + Water = Mud (and a whole lot of fun)!
