I love fall. Mandy and I just put together our Fall Bucket List filled with all kinds of fun seasonal activities from apple picking to corn mazes to hay rides, and I can’t wait to start checking off all my top favorites. And explore a few new ones, of course 🙂
Now, if you enjoy reading our posts and getting the latest inside info on fun things to do with your family, there’s something you should know: None of this would be possible without the generous support of our wonderful sponsors. They keep things running here at Out and About Mom, and we can’t thank them enough.
But beyond that, our sponsors have so much to offer to CT families like yours, especially now as our little ones are heading back to school.
This month, we’re pleased to continue featuring The Independent Day School in Middlefield, CT with its unique approach to academics for age 3 through grade 8. Read on to find out more about “Fearless Learning.”
As you prepare your child for a successful school year, make sure you check out 4D Vision Gym, a vision training center in Cromwell, CT that can help improve learning and playing for your child with non-invasive Vision Therapy treatment. Mark your calendar for their Open House on September 24th, and make sure your child will be learning at their full potential this fall.
And we are thrilled to announce the grand opening of our newest sponsor, Imagine Studio, a brand new creative arts studio opening in West Hartford, CT. Check out many free classes from September 8th-12th, and don’t forget to stop by their Open House on September 10th.
So please, take a moment to read more about each one of our amazing sponsors, and share this post with friends, relatives, neighbors and coworkers if you think they might be interested in learning more about these family-centric businesses and organizations. It’s one simple thing you can do to help support our site and keep us “scouting your CT outing.”
4D VISION GYM, OPTOMETRY and VISION THERAPY, Cromwell, CT
It’s a new school year!
Watch out for signs that your child may have an undetected vision issue.
If your child is averse to completing their academic work, has low self-esteem with regards to school, avoids reading, or is not achieving their potential, an undetected vision issue may be interfering with their progress.
At 4D Vision Gym, a vision training center in Cromwell CT, Dr. Juanita Collier MS OD and her staff show members how to utilize Vision Therapy to correct visual issues and make learning and playing easier and more fun.
Using a wide array of non-invasive techniques and optometric tools, the 4D Vision Gym team helps patients overcome the visual barriers that impact their ability to do well in school, play sports, and perform everyday life activities.
At the Open House on September 24 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., the Vision Therapy team from 4D Vision Gym will be speaking about the link between vision, learning, and behavior, and how Vision Therapy can help bridge the gap between all three.
Children of all ages will be able to participate in hands-on demonstrations of Vision Therapy exercises! Parents will have the opportunity to schedule a complimentary near-point vision screening for them as well.
Schedule a complimentary, near-point vision screening: www.4DVisionGym.com.
