Preschoolers are an active bunch, which can sometimes make keeping them entertained and engaged a challenge for parents. That’s why Providence Children’s Academy has come up with some fun, age-appropriate fall activities to try.
With fall comes Halloween! There are lots of do-it-yourself things to do together at home. Carving a pumpkin may be too difficult for your young child, even under supervision. But there is an alternative so your child can still get in on the pumpkin-decorating fun: pumpkin painting.
Pumpkin painting will allow your child to be creative and make a bit of a mess: two things that kids love! And if they want the icky-yet-amusing experience of emptying the pumpkin “guts,” you can always cut into the top of the pumpkin for them and let them enjoy digging out the pulp before the painting part.

Providence Children’s Academy Programs
At Providence Children’s Academy, we offer several programs for children, including:
Our voluntary pre-kindergarten (VPK) program helps get your preschooler ready for school. Our program focuses on early literacy and will help your child become familiar with a classroom environment before they start kindergarten. VPK is a statewide program that is free for all 4-year-olds in the state of Florida.
We also offer an after-school program to provide childcare when the school day is over. We are open Monday through Friday until 6:30 pm. Your preschooler will get to do fun activities, play on the playground, and have snacks, all under the careful supervision of our trained staff.
