[08/16/21] I have one spot that just opened up in my Tuesday/Thursday preschool class! It’s $90 a month and goes from 9:30 AM-12:00 PM. Please help spread the word!
Well, this school year is a wrap! It has been an amazing group of kids! They are so kind, patient, smart, funny, good listeners, and on and on. A lot of them will be moving on to kindergarten and I know they will do great! I’m so glad I still get to see some of them next year! Have a great summer!!
In March we talked all about spring! We learned about the life cycle of a butterfly by raising caterpillars, watching them make a chrysalis, and then emerge into butterflies! We learned about the life cycle of a flower and planted our own flower seeds. We watered them, put them in a sunny window, and waited for them to grow! Some were way faster at growing than others! We learned about baby animals like bunnies, ducks, and birds. We also learned about the weather spring brings such as wind and rain and talked about why they are important. March was such a fun month!
In February we learned all about space! We had such a fun time with all the painting activities we were able to do as we learned about the sun, the moon, stars, and planets!
For the month of January we learned all about the 8 types of bears in the world! We had a short month this month so we crammed a lot of learning in the short time we had! We ended our month with a teddy bear party! We sang and danced with our bears, we measured our bears with cubes, and we ended our day with a teddy bear picnic!
December was a great month for learning All the different varieties of the story The Gingerbread Man, dog, girl, ninja, mouse, kid, etc. We even made a variation of our own Gingerbread man book! Preschool is awesome!!
November was a fun month! We talked about feelings, friendship, and family. Here’s a couple of highlights we did this month!
The first month of preschool we used the song; Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes to get our wiggles out a lot. They loved this song!
October was such a fun month! We learned about pumpkins a the season of Fall!
In September at preschool we had a great time meeting new friends and learning about our five senses!
Mindful Moments Preschool & Before/After School Care
Look at the differences between a typical younger child’s hand (left) and a typical older child's hand (right). I have parents asking regularly why their preschool aged child isn’t able to write yet. This is why! Their hands (and brains) are still developing and are not fully formed. So what should they be doing to support this? PLAY!! Playdough, colouring, cutting, gluing, playing outside, digging in dirt, sensory play, dress up play, science experiments, beading, puzzles, throwing balls, etc. All of these things help their hands develop. When they are physically ready to write, they will! No need to rush them, they will show you when they are ready!
[06/08/20] I'm starting a two day a week Tuesday/Thursday 12:45-3:15 afternoon class this coming fall! $85 dollars a month! Only six spots available! Spread the word!
Such great tips!

[03/24/20] I’m so sad to say that today the State Education Department ordered all schools to stay closed until April 20th. Because Happy Learner’s Preschool follows the Boise School District we will stay closed until April 20th as well. I miss you all so much and can’t wait until school can resume again! Stay healthy!

[03/15/20] The Boise School District has decided to stay open so we will too. I have sanitized everything that we use in and around our preschool. If you choose to keep your child home I completely understand. Please let me know if your child won’t be coming into school. Thanks!

This month we are learning about community helpers. We were so lucky to be able to take a tour of the Five Mile fire station. The kids really enjoyed exploring the fire equipment and shooting the fire hose. It was awesome!
Happy Thanksgiving!! We had quite the friendship feast at school! We are thankful for friends! 🦃
This month’s theme is all about how we can keep our bodies healthy and strong. Today we took a field trip to visit Dr. Scholes. He taught us all about how to take care of our teeth and what we do when we visit a dentist. He was so amazing with the kids. They really loved it! After we visited the dentist we went to get some exercise at Planet Kid. It was a fun day!!
We had SO much fun at our Halloween parties this year!
We had such a great time on our field trip to the pumpkin patch! Happy Learner’s has the families!
