In 2011 Sprout and Childtime partnered to launch Kindness Counts — teaching and celebrating kindness in the classroom, on the playground and at home. Thank you to everyone who participated in the “Season of Kindness” by reading books that encourage kind acts, taking the kindness pledge or making crafts and activities around kindness. Your children’s kind acts were tracked on a Kindness Meter in each school totaling over 65,000 kind acts from November 2011 — January 2012 across affiliated schools. We are so proud of the kind acts demonstrated by your children.
Childtime and Sprout are continuing our kindness mission in 2012 with themes including Being Kind to the Earth, Your Body and Your Friends! This fall, in connection with the launch of Grow Fit, Sprout and Childtime will be promoting the goal of Be Kind to Yourself. To get your family started, download Chica’s Healthy Checklist and help your family track healthy eating, exercise, rest and more. And keep an eye out in October for a special Family Challenge opportunity. To learn more about Kindness Counts, or add your own kind act to the counter, visit www.SproutOnline.com/KindnessCounts.
Stand up with Childtime and Sprout as we help provide children with the skills and experiences needed to build the kind community of tomorrow — today!
