Summer is officially here, so it’s time to go outside and play. While kids are thrilled school is out, it’s also a time to make sure they don’t lose all of their hard-earned knowledge from the previous year. 

Did you know that research has shown that the average student will lose up to 3 months of learning over the summer break? It’s true ! you can check out the article from the National Summer Learning Association, for that and more info on Summer Brain Drain!
Academic research shows that active play is a natural,and primary way that children learn.  It is essential to their healthy growth and progress, particularly during periods of rapid brain development. And most kids don't even realize how much they are LEARNING through play, especially when it's FUN!
