Health A to Z

two young girls


Ages 6-10
Late Childhood

During these years children begin to have their own identity away from home. Your child will be learning and growing at a fast pace. Real life tasks and activities replace pretend and fantasy. While learning about right and wrong, safety and responsibility, and the good feelings that come from hard work, your child can develop a health attitude of “I can!” This is a feeling adds to a healthy childhood now, and in years to come!
