PreSchool (3-5)

Welcome to the Kiddles preschool hub. This is an exciting time for you and your kid, which might mean that you’ll need some advice for the times ahead. In this section, moms can be on the lookout for the best tips, tricks, and advice on all things preschoolers. We cover topics like:

Preschool development

The toddler years can be hard on you as well as your kid. You’re constantly worried. You’re fighting off germs. And you’re always keeping tabs on your kid’s development. But just take it, easy mom. Here’s how.

Eating & food

We all want our kids to be good eaters. We’d like them to eat things like fava beans, goat’s cheese, oranges, and the infamous broccoli. But is that expecting a little too much? Simply put: no. Our kids shouldn’t grow up to be picky eaters. They should be open to new experiences on every level of their lives, including their culinary adventures. Here’s how to put an end to picky eating.

Activities

You might have heard about just how bad too much screen time can be for your kid, and although we’re totally okay with the idea of letting the kids watch some TV and play on their iPads every now and again, we have to admit that it can be much easier said than done to break the screen time habit. So how can you effectively cut down on the amount of screen time your kids do on a daily basis? Well, you come up with innovative screen time replacements and this post as all the answers you need.

Potty training

As parents, we’re always looking for “telltale signs of potty training readiness”. We want to lure out kids out of their diapers as fast and as painless as possible. And we want to get the job done in style. But in reality, we shouldn’t want to toilet train out kids just for the sake of getting it over and done wit. When your kid potty trains at a stage and age when he or she is really ready for it and grows up without any gastrointestinal or urinary tract problems, you’ve done a great job. Want to ensure your child gets it right the first time around with potty training? Here are the most important rules for potty training success.

Sleep

Did you know that roughly 70% of all toddlers and preschoolers experience sleep problems? The fact of the matter is that sleep issues are a complicated mess and triggered by a variety of factors. Affecting everything from tempers to growth and development, sleep issues can be devastating for toddlers and preschoolers.  If your little human is having a hard time falling (and staying) asleep at night, here are some sleep solutions for toddlers and preschoolers.

Siblings

Sibling rivalry seems to be a topic as old as time itself, yet so many parents still battle with it. What is it, why does it happen, and can we stop it? Read on to find out how to deal with sibling rivalry in a way that won’t cause chaos in your family.

Behaviour

We all want our kids to have a strong start in life. And one of the most solid foundations for their future in school is preschool. If you’ve ever wondered what skills all kids need before preschool, this post is for you. Let’s take a look at some of the basics kids need before they start preschool.
