The rain has passed & left us with some breezy, fall weather! These Pre-K kids had a blast rolling in the leaves this morning. Ms. Kassidy was able to make a memorable moment for everyone by snapping these shots!

Infant 4 was busy checking themselves out in the mirror this morning. Mirror play is an essential part of growing their self-awareness. Doing so will help them recognize different emotions in themselves and others. Even as they grow older, learning other techniques to expand self-awareness is still important. Our infants were happy and gave many kisses!

We all know how important sensory development is to our toddlers. Ms. Sam came up with a terrific idea! She took an empty bubble wand & repurposed it into a sensory bottle! Each child took turns filling the wands with small items. They had a blast all while strengthening their fine motor skills! Kudos to Ms. Sam for coming up with such an inventive idea!

It's fall festival week! As we prepare for our fall festival on Friday, we are loving all the enthusiasm about our pumpkin decorating contest. Every classroom has made their own creation and they look AMAZING! We love when this time of the year comes around and we get to kick off the fall with a huge party. Our families really enjoy the extra time together and the fun that comes with it!

Show & Share is the most favorite activity on Fridays for most classes. Show and share sets the stage for children to become comfortable when speaking in public. After all, show and share helps students with planning their presentation, public speaking, using different types of vocabulary and descriptive language, and fielding questions from their classmates. Who knew such a fun activity could be so beneficial?!

Getting outdoors on a regular basis can improve a child's health and well-being as the fresh air cleans their lungs, ridding them of impurities such as car fumes and dust. Playing outdoors will also give children a greater appreciation for nature and wildlife. On sunny days like today, we love to see the joy on their faces as they run around & create games with one another increasing their level of creativity & imagination.
