Safe Trick-or-Treating tips for Halloween

Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year because we get to dress up in fun costumes. It is also a time where we have to be extra safe! At The Learning Experience®, child safety and security is of the utmost importance to us.  Our Safe ‘N’ Secure centers were built with every little detail in mind to keep your children protected while they are in our care. To extend this safety blanket that we provide for children and families, many of our centers will be having “Trunk or Treat” events as a safe and controlled alternative to trick-or-treating. Each “Trunk or Treat” event allows families to gather in a closed parking lot and use their vehicle trunks as their front door so that they can distribute candy to other TLE families. Every year these highly attended events provide our families with an opportunity to simulate door-to-door trick-or-treating for their children, without the dangers that come along with trick-or-treating in the open community. For those of you that will be participating in trick-or-treating out in the community, we want you to be safe, so here are some helpful safety tips:

1. Costume Safety Tips:

  • Use props that are easy to carry
  • Don’t wear masks that limit visibility
  • Don’t wear long costumes that will make you trip, or lose balance

2. Halloween Safety Hazards:

  • Wear or carry something that lights up to avoid safety hazards
  • Always use crosswalks and sidewalks
  • Go to homes that are well lit and easy to spot from a distance

3. Trick or treat planning:

  • Plan your route before leaving the house
  • Eat before going out so that children are not prone to over-indilge
  • Stay hydrated and take bathroom breaks

We hope that everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!

As parents, we try to prepare our children for any possible situation they may find themselves in, such as what to do if they get lost or see someone get hurt. For children to be prepared for emergency situations, they must first understand the concept of community helpers and know how to recognize those charged with serving and protecting their fellow citizens.

As a parent, you know the excitement of imagining your child growing up to become a successful doctor, a movie star, or even the next president! While those are all fun things to imagine, what most parents really want is for their children to become caring, kind, and empathetic, regardless of profession.

How to Help Your Child’s First Friendships Flourish

Good friends help make our lives more enjoyable and full of love and caring. Friends are there to celebrate the joyful times, to give support during sad times, and share one another’s experiences throughout life. According to psychiatrist Dr. Saul Levine, “A key finding from a major study of adults’ lives was that those who had close, long-term friends fared better than those who were less social. Close friendships enhanced moods and functioning as well as emotional and physical health.”
