Default If You Could Put One Quote In Your Daycare Space...

what would it be?

I am doing a vinyl decal in my room, about 4 x 2. I have a groupon for a custom one.

Help me decide!

"Bloom where you're planted."

To me, it means make the most of the opportunities you're given, and be the best you can be.

Someone, either here or on my FB, recently mentioned the quote from The Help. "You are smart. You are kind. You are important." I think it's going to be our new routine.

I love two by Dr. Seuss and 3 or 4 from Winnie the pooh, It would be hard to choose just 1.
Dr. Seuss' Don't give up I believe in you all, a persons a person no matter how small.
You're off to great places, Today is your day, Your mountain is waiting, So..... Get on your way!
Winnie the pooh:
Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in our hearts.
Always remember, You are braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem, and Smarter than you think.
Some people care too much, I think it's called love.
Dig a little deeper think of something we've never thought of before.
And one that probably would work but, Did you ever stop to think and forget to start again?

My DD has the Suess quote "Today is your day, your mountain is waiting, so get on your way." on her bedroom wall.

I also like for playroom..."we play to learn and learn to play"

The quote hanging on my entry way wall above my cubbies says

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” ~ Maria Montessori

I almost purchased a painting with the very simple saying, "Today is going to be a very good day." I would love to wake up to that every morning and even use it as our preschool mantra.

I like "Today is my favorite day!" it's so positive and reminds me to be in the now which is helpful when dealing with small humans.

I like
"Let them be little, because they're only that way for a while"

"Oh, the places you will go!"

"Let them sleep, for when they wake they will move mountains"

Hmmm, now I want a vinyl saying on my wall!!!

Pretty much any Dr. Seuss quote from his books.

"A person's a person no matter how small"

"Today you are you, that's truer than true. There's no one alive that's youer than you"

"You'll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut"

"Today was good, today was fun. Tomorrow is another one"

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened"

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go"

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

"You're off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so ... get on your way!"

Etc

It isn't a large vinyl, but I do have this quote my reading corner with pictures of the children caught reading.

A friend of mine has this one on her play room wall


"They say that man is mighty
He governs land and sea
He wields a mighty scepter
O'er lesser powers that be.
But a mightier power and stronger
man from his throne has hurled
For the hand that rocks the cradle
is the hand that rules the world."


~ William Ross Wallace

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"
"Dream big, Sparkle more, Shine bright"
"Count Rainbows, not Thunderstorms"
"Don't look back, because you might fall over what's in front of you"

Sounds fun! I might need a quote for my playroom =)

You need to let us all know what you pick!

My 3 current favorites...

(note: the 45% one is part of a poster set that has fun ideas for parents on the go. Not intended as judgement, but inspiration. It is a cool "get fit" program )
