“Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning.”
– Diane Ackerman
February has been full of love and appreciation for us here at The Children’s Center. From Valentine’s Day to huge progress with our playground renovations we have had a lot to be grateful for in February. We hope you have too! Here are some of the highlights from this month:
We received a visit from our friends at Slice Out Hunger this month! We are grateful to them for including us in their Pizza Across America Week and for the important work they are doing to fight food insecurity across the United States. Thank you also to Giuseppi’s Pizza & Pasta – Hilton Head Island and SERG Restaurant Group for providing the pizzas!
The Ladybugs had a blast recently trying their hand at breaking open a pinata! They successfully displayed the use of some gross motor skills (the use of our large muscle groups to accomplish tasks), which is one of the developmental areas we focus on here at The Children’s Center. Go Ladybugs!
Thanks to the generous donations of our 2022 Celebration Dinner attendees, we were able to begin renovations on our outdoor education spaces this month! Thank you to our Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island and Sunset Rotary of Hilton Head Island volunteers for all your hard work on this project. You are making our dreams come true!
There isn’t much time left to participate in our “Pashminas for a Cause” event! This week is the perfect time to stop by Evelyn and Arthur and pick up your pashmina shawl! 100% of the proceeds from any pashmina shawl purchased in the month of February will be donated to The Children’s Center. Thank you for your support!
Whether golfers are scoring birdies during the game or chasing them on the green, YOU can support The Children’s Center this year through The Heritage Foundation’s Birdies for Charity program is running January 1st – April 16th, 2023! Birdies for Charity allows you to pledge an amount for every birdie made at the RBC Heritage Tournament (1,405 birdies in 2022) and your entire donation will go to The Children’s Center PLUS, the Heritage Classic Foundation will contribute an extra 20% on top of your total!
Confused about what a birdie even is? Well, it definitely isn’t this. “Par” represents the number of strokes an expert golfer is expected to make on the hole or course. Every golf hole has a “par” assigned to it. Most holes are either a par 3, par 4, or par 5. A player makes a “birdie” when he uses one fewer strokes than the par of the hole.

The Importance of Play in Early Childhood

Lyn is a real team player and is always willing to help out when there is a need at the center. She will often help give other staff members breaks, help the little one-year-olds transition outside, or keep the kiddos focused during picture day. For fun, she likes to go bowling, go to the beach, see live music, play trivia, and do crafts. We are so grateful to have Lyn on our team!
