Engage Young Minds All Summer with These At-Home Tips!

After the last bell rings at school and summer officially starts, most kids are at risk of developing "summer brain funk".

This is due to the lack of homework and instruction they usually receive on a day to day basis.

There is nothing wrong with letting loose for the summer, but what happens when school gets out early due to a pandemic?

As a leader in child development, Penfield creates a positive start in life for infants and children, many of whom have developmental delays or disabilities, by providing early education, health services and family programming.

To carry out its mission, Penfield delivers research-based programs at the critical time of early brain development when physical, cognitive, language, social, and self-help skills are formed.

This summer Penfield Children's Center wants to ensure the loss of school time does not affect children's development and education going forward.

Rebecca Michelson,Manager of Community Outreach & Family Programs at Penfield, joins us with ways to keep young minds engaged this summer.

Some activities include helping out in the kitchen, reading, arts and crafts and exploring!
