Why Road Trips are Valuable: Tips from a Salisbury Childcare Center


By Sharonda Perry

    Families are encouraged to have at least one family road trip per year! Road trips are not only fun and exciting but also offer so many wonderful benefits for children and adults. Road trips are adventures with endless opportunities for families to learn and grow! Some of the benefits of having road trips are: it promotes family bonding, enhances language development, builds patience, and many more!

Having family road trips promotes family bonding. Being in the car for hours makes family closer! Also give parents a chance to learn more about their children. It can also enhance children’s language development. Road trip is an opportunity for families to talk and engage in conversations with each other. This means kids are constantly being exposed to new vocabulary which enhances language development and can also improve their social language skills. Most importantly, it helps build patience. Everyone is forced to be patient on road trips. This is an important skill for children to learn! Kids will learn how to wait for something they want in the moment. It is a skill that can be acquired through experience. And it is important that it will be learned at an early age!

    We are partnering up with our sister nonprofit, Operation Experience, Inc. for a Princess Party Event. This is a ticketed event for the community, but wanted to share it with you too. Spots are limited and parents must remain at the center for the event (we will have a lounge area for you 😊). It will be on April 29, 2023, 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM at 547 Riverside Drive Unit E.
