We had the most wonderful Valentine themed country style breakfast this morning for our families & children. We had a drawing for a Loveless gift basket valued at $100, congratulations to the Newhouse family for the win! The breakfast included country ham, white gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, freshly cut fruit with biscuits and preserves from the Loveless Cafe. We thank all of our families for coming and being a part of such a great school and community.

Last week all of our children enjoyed watching the snow melt outside of their classrooms. The children in Infant 2 explored the snow through using their senses of touch, smell and sight. They mashed the snow in the palms of their hands and made a tiny snowman for the classroom. They even found a little ladybug and explored watching it crawl around on Mrs. Tonya's Hands. Exploration of our world comes at an early age at AOHV!

Our teachers and students are getting ready for the next holiday! We are showing our love throughout the center with artwork and decorations. We want to also "spread" the love and appreciation to our parents on Friday, February 5 with a complementary biscuit breakfast from the Loveless Cafe! We're so glad to all be part of such great loving families and teachers!

Today the school age kids enjoyed having a day out of school! Their favorite activity was the snowball throw even though there wasn't as much snow as we thought. They also tasted the snowflakes and learned how snowflakes are made. They made snowflake snowmen with their hands and handmade hats. Be careful out there everybody.

We have been talking today about Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. and what a wonderful impact he had on our society. The children in the Pre K classes are learning to write down what their dreams are, and how important people they can become! We are so proud of our kids and what we're teaching them.
The children have been working very hard on their artwork and learning about the Itsy Bitsy Spider story. They love learning about the various types of bugs. Mrs. Anne even went room to room to show us this gigantic spider which wasn't so itsy bitsy!
It's that time of year where talking about exercise and eating healthy is a positive learning experience for children and adults of all ages. We talk to the children as young as infant one about how exercising can help our bodies move! The oldest children at our center had a competition all week about who can be the most physically fit! The girls won the jumping jack contest completing 500 in a row! Keep moving kids!
