Chicks and Guinea Fowl Birds

What an exciting Day!  Our sweet Gretchen in Pre K 2 shared her grand father and he brought chicks and Guinea Fowls! He brought a man from the Co-op  to explain the difference between the two.  We had a couple if children that had great questions like: "Are they like chicken nuggets? And " Do they fly?"  "The things children say"!

International Library Day!

Library services all over the world have never been as important for children and their families, as they are today. Access to the knowledge and the multicultural riches of the world, as well as lifelong learning and literacy skills have become the priority of our society. Children should be encouraged to use the library from an early age, as this will make them more likely to remain users in the future years.

Green our Scene

We have been teaching our TASK class about our environment, and how keeping it clean is very important. One of the best ways of teaching them would be hands on, and letting them help clean up. What a great experience!

Today in Preschool 3, we decided to have a snuggle party! With the weather bad outside, it is always fun to snuggle up with our friends. They had such a great time! Hopefully, we are able to make it back outside soon enough. Until then, we have made up new activities and fun little things to do with our class to make sure the kids are getting some of their energy out. 


              This are some pictures from our snuggle party before lunch today! We had such an amazing time!

Local Artist

Gayla Pugh is a local artist that came in to talk to the children about colors. She taught them how the three primary colors can be mixed to make all the secondary colors. They had a blast helping her mix the colors, and painting a beautiful picture.
