Please Join us for a Group Tour of GPS! 
This Fall our Junior Kindergarten students are enjoying the classic children's book, The Doorbell Rang. The classes completed many exciting, active learning experiences including cooperative games, acting out the story plus math and science activities. The culminating activity is baking their own cookies. The student's recipe and cookies will be shared with you! RSVP's are recommended but not required.

Program Spotlight: The Three's
The Three Year Old Program is designed for growing young minds. Two, 3 and 5 Day Classes are available with optional Lunch Bunch until 1:20pm or Stay & Play from 7:30am-6:00pm.

Our curious three year olds have started the school year getting to know their new friends. Children partnered up and collaborated on Friendship Paintings. Students will be doing many creative activities this fall including painting with pine needles, taste testing various types of apples, going on nature walks and discovering our cherry and apple trees, creating AB patterns with apple parts, and a lively retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears with props and songs. The Three's are off to a great start!

Yella Kim
Assistant Teacher, Preschool 
Teacher at GPS since 2011 
7 Years of Teaching Experience 

Yella was immediately drawn to the philosophy of the Golden Pond Way when she and her husband decided to enroll their son at Golden Pond School in 2008. Their family watched Nate blossom through his years at the school. We were thrilled when Yella decided to join the faculty in 2011 to pursue her love of teaching. 

"I believe that Golden Pond's play-based learning was the hook that helped grow my son's curiosity and love of learning."
