If you are a working parent that chose a childcare center close to your office, you have an extra companion to keep you occupied during your ride! Look forward to the daily trips you make with your child by learning, starting conversation, and interacting with each other.

Engage with Education

The car is a great time to practice counting, telling stories, and expanding your son or daughter’s vocabulary. Get your child’s mind moving with a few of these fun ideas!

Play Fun Car Games

There are plenty of fun games you can play to keep your child occupied during the ride. Interact with each other by playing some of these games!

Ask Personal Questions

As your child develops his vocabulary and ways to exhibit how he is feeling, you can begin to ask him deeper questions. Get to know him or her on a deeper level by asking them these fun questions or variations of them.
