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!

Saint Patrick's Day Fun!!

Magic!!! Kids believe in magic for only so long, why not make the most of it! Here at The Academy of Harpeth Village we have been talking about Ireland, tradition,   Magic, and Leprechauns! This morning we celebrated with a fantastic Magic Show! Mr. Bruce dazzled the children with magic tricks! We also had some well dressed for the occasion, Toddlers. You will see the fashion show below!

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.

Ace does a puppet show for our Infant 1 class

Learning through play is the fundamental to our children's education, helping them to develop the necessary skills in life.  Puppets can stimulate children's imagination, encourage creative play and discovery and are a wonderful interactive way to introduce narrative to a child.   It can be a powerful way to of bringing a story to life.  Our infants show how fun it can be to bring stories to life.

Computer Class

Our Preschool 2 class is learning the parts of a computer today.  It is fun for them to learn. I listened as they clapped for each child as they typed their names. Ms. Sharon really had fun with all the classes.

Fire Safety!

Children do well when they have very clearly defined instructions and practice. Rehearse, rehearse, and rehearse. Talking about what to do is helpful, but nothing will ingrain it in your child's head like actually doing it. Practicing how to react is the single most effective way to ensure your child will react safely if ever confronted with danger.
