Meal Train for The Gilstraps

Ms. Gilstrap and her family could use our continuing support and love. Here's a super tangible way to do that as she's at home caring for her husband Rich.

Meal Train for The Gilstraps Over the weekend Rich was hospitalized and although he's home now, he's not strong and his health continues to decline. He'll remain on oxygen and Joy is needing to be home caring for him full-time. As their community, rallying around them to help provide meals and take some of the weight off would....

It’s so sad when these kinds of things happen to the kindest, most generous and hard working of people. I don’t know anyone who works harder and gives more generously than Joy Gilstrap. We love the Gilstrap’s and wanted to share this so you can donate or keep them in your prayers.

This months theme for our parent resource is “saying good-bye”. So many of us have experienced how hard and unnatural it can be to get your child peeled off of you by a caregiver and walk away with them crying. Good bye’s are hard but it doesn’t always have to be that way. I found this guidance from ‘Our Mama Village’ so helpful. I like the last post reminding us parents that children look to us for leadership. If we are secure and confident in saying good bye that security will help them trust the caregivers at preschool. Your child will still miss you and be excited to see you at pick up but they will feel more secure while you are away.


CCPS staff is excited to see all our families again! Thank you thrivent for sponsoring our training at Stoble Workplace

Such a fun Thanksgiving walk to the tree farm! We are so Thankful for our families, staff and school. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone


As a parent or educator it is so important to understand the stages of a child’s tantrum or behavior. Understanding the escalation cycle is one of the most beneficial things you can do to effectively help a child work through big feelings. Often when our child is escalated we are at a loss of what to do, we ponder whether to give in, will this get worse, when will this stop, should I distract them, should I offer food, should I hug them, should I walk away…taking a pause and reflecting on what stage of the tantrum cycle your child is in can help answer some of those questions and help you respond appropriately. If they are fully escalated-their ability to reason and process a conversation is non existent, it’s best to use short-direct communication and remind them you are there when they are ready. Waiting until they are fully back to baseline to discuss the triggering event will help ensure your child is in a place where they can effectively process information.


Thank you to everyone who came out to the Back to School Carnival today! We hope you had as much fun as we did and got to meet some other preschool families in between games. A BIG thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to help. We could not have done it without our parent volunteers running games, cleaning and setting up or our special vendors; music by Zooba, Brown Derby Dawgs and Catch It Quick juggling and balloon twisting. Feeling very grateful for all our wonderful families that made this afternoon so fun.


I need a moment to publicly praise the CCPS teachers. We have been up against smoke, COVID round 2 and all the standard stresses of teaching little people. Today and everyday I am so honored to be apart of this staff that is so flexible, loving of the children and loving of one another. If you ever want to see true teamwork in action come spend a day watching our teachers. 🤍🤎💙🧡💜❤️💛💚💙


Thank you for your prayers! God has sent us some amazing teachers to hire! We are still looking to fill one shift: 1pm-5:30pm either M-F or T/Th/F as an afternoon floating preschool teacher.

All Pro Dad | Advice for Dads on Parenting, Marriage and Relationships

Today’s post is for the dads, especially if they love football 🏈. There are so many mom oriented support groups and social media accounts to guide us through parenting struggles. Today we wanted to share a group for dads to follow. Check ouT All Pro Dads, created by Tony Dungy. He’s built a great platform that caters to dad specific topics and always has a football reference to tie it all together.

Fire season is never easy for anyone. Today we are praying for the families that are being affected by the Dixi fire. We’re praying for the safety of the firefighters and everyone working to try and contain it.

We know the smoke and location of the Dixie fire can be especially triggering for our families and staff who went through the campfire. You are all also in our prayers🙏


These phrases are so simple yet so impactful to how smooth your day goes. If you’re looking for helpful parenting accounts to follow, the mom psychologist is a great one!


Love this tool to fight stress and frustration when toddlers are having a melt down.

Next time your kiddo is in a tantrum, pick a mantra or two, take a deep breath and know you’re doing the best you can and that is good enough!


Hello CCPS Facebook followers! We are requesting prayer for the assistant teaching positions we need to hire for this fall.

We are really struggling to even get applicants right now. If you know anyone who might be interested please send them our way. If you don’t know of anyone please be praying for our staffing. We trust that God has a plan and has gone before us, but we also believe in the mighty power of prayer!

I often roll my eyes at these kinds of post because they seem cheesy or unrealistic. However, I’m sharing this because I’ve tried it myself over and over with my own kids and with kids at the preschool and it works!

Sometimes we just need to be thoughtful on how we use our energy and choose whether we want to spend our energy frustrated with our kids or playful with them. Both ways may end with similar results but the journey to get those results will feel better if we intentionally choose to try the fun way.


Speech tip below 👇. Whether your child has a speech delay or is just learning to talk it’s great to create opportunities that motivate them to use words. Other ways to create opportunities is to put highly desired items just out of reach so they can see them but have to make a request for someone to get them down. Also, try giving them one piece of a food item at a time to present the opportunity to request “more” (ex: one blueberry at a time or one piece of a sandwich.
