It's all about summertime fun right now, and we're sharing 30 seasonal conversation starters to get you going with your children at the home dinner table or when writing to them at sleep-away camp! Instead of just answering, “my day was fine,” we find these inviting questions will encourage children to be more open and communicative about their summer experiences in either case.
And while the lazy days of summer are on all of our minds we wanted to remind you that enrollment is open for the our afterschool programs in the Fall.
