Hello Yorkson Leaders!
Thank you for showing up for the kids at Yorkson. Here’s what Kristen Ivy has to say about showing up for kids:
In preschool, kids need you to show up so they know you.
There are more changes in the first years of life than in any others. That means the world of a toddler is unstable. It’s no wonder they need adults to step in and create some stability. The best thing you can give a preschooler is a familiar face. If they don’t know who you are, you won’t have a lot of success giving them anything else that matters—just think about how many preschoolers cry when they visit Santa.
