Let it snow!  We have been singing snow songs, doing "snow yoga" and even dressed Mat Man for winter!  February music classes will continue to practice the children's gross motor skills, as well as  develop their listening skills!  Learning to listen and follow directions in simple songs helps with reading readiness, patterning and responsible behavior- all good things!  Music is a fun way to practice these very important skills!

February Greetings!

Welcome to the month of love and friendship! We will be celebrating Valentine's Day here at preschool in all classes. See below for all the details!

You can find the school calendar and all upcoming events on our website's News & Events page.
News from the Directors
February is the month of love and kindness. It's the m on th to focus on our hearts and think about how we love one another. God teaches us to love one another and to be kind to each other. At the preschool, we try to live God's message and spread love and kindness in everything we do. We strive to show what "kindness" looks like! The teachers work to develop a sense of community in the classroom. They create supportive environments to help the children learn from one another. They practice "kindness" and begin teaching what it means to work together cooperatively and collaboratively. These skills are part of our Executive Functioning and are important life skills for all people! In addition, they are God skills...He wants us all to work together and love each other! This February, take the time to practice your "God skills".  As a community, let's talk about kindness and show others what kindness looks like!

Blessings,
Julie and Ann-Marie

No food items of any kind may be attached to the cards and no goody bags please! We appreciate your support in celebrating Valentine's Day in a fun and safe manner for all our children!
