Welcoming new friends and new faces to dance with us September 17-23
The week of September 17-23 is Bring-A-Friend week at Prima
Early-childhood friendship is something that is frequently overlooked as a positive developmental influence.
We don’t always realize how attached young children are to their friends, or why is it even important.
Why should parents help their child foster secure friendships at a young age?
Recent research shows the importance of friendship, and its impact on mental and physical health.
Childhood friendships are helpful in developing social and emotional skills, increasing a sense of belonging and decreasing stress.
Prima is committed to creating a great support system that can help us (students, parents, staff and directors) deal with those hardships that everyone faces at some point.
Here are some ways Prima helps your child develop positive, warm friendships:
- Model the importance of staying connected, after all connection is the founding principle of our studio.
- Encourage the friendships that are important to your child. We look for ways to encourage friendships and help build new friendships among the children in dance class.
- Respect your child’s unique personality. Prima staff will encourage and embrace your child's uniqueness and help others in the class see why every child's unique personality should be celebrated.
Take this opportunity to share the joy!
