Early childhood

A traumatic event can impact a child for the rest of their life. Likewise, healthy activities can have a positive effect. Shalon Hoyle, with the YMCA of Washington’s early childhood program, says having kids just play together can be significant. Hoyle says they one of their biggest goals is to have preschoolers learn how to interact socially with their peers, so they are more comfortable when they get to kindergarten.
