We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Ethos. We had researched many daycare centers around the city, as well as looked at nannies, prior to enrolling our 3-month old baby girl at Ethos. We felt the most comfortable at Ethos, and immediately connected with the staff. The director is fabulous, she really welcomed our family and made our daughter’s transition a happy one. The teachers are great, so sweet and attentive. When I often pop in during the day or at the end of the day to pick her up, our daughter is usually smiling and cooing while playing with the teachers, or peacefully napping in a clean, safe crib. It is a great feeling knowing our daughter is so well-cared for, and we are so happy to have chosen Ethos. We absolutely recommend it!

As early as 24-30 months, children are already learning the art of storytelling through their constantly increasing ability to sequence events, pinpoint actions in time, and identify different characters.
In this post, we will share a bit about the roots of oral storytelling and its relationship in language and social development.
