Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
June is such a fun month. It’s the month for Dads and Grads! Whether your child is graduating from kindergarten or college, it’s a wonderful time to celebrate. Show the dads, too, how much you appreciate all that they do and how special they are. Kids love June because it means the end of school, the start of summer vacation and the beginning of camp! It’s also a time for those special family outings.
Our magazine hits a home run this month and keeps all of your bases covered for a summer to remember. Go to our digital issue and you’ll find a tremendous section of seasonal Great Things To Do. Head to New Britain to take in a baseball game, visit one of our amazing local museums, “oar” go canoeing, climb to new heights on a giant ropes course, jump for joy on a trampoline or get in ship shape when you tour a real battleship. There is something new for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Are you are still looking for a summer program for your child? Check out our extensive list of camps and summer programs on this site. In our June issue we share last-minute suggestions to make sure the summer experience is really cool.
We have a lot to share this month, both in print and online. Children tend to lose a lot of what they learned in school during the summer break. But you can fight this slump by creating opportunities at home to boost your child’s reading and math skills. The Pequot Library in Southport shares some exceptional books that go hand-in-hand with the summer theme of Building a Better World. And before your kids, or you, dip your toes in the water, make sure you know the ‘pool rules’ to keep everyone safe and in the swim.
Happy June! Congratulations dads and grads! And have a great and safe start of summer.
