Looking for the perfect preschool for your soon-to-be kindergartener? Here are 20 essential questions to ask to help you make a confident decision for your little one's education. ๐Ÿซ

How to Choose the Best Preschool - New Horizon Academy Choosing a preschool can be overwhelming. Here are 20 questions to ask before choosing a preschool program for your child.


On days too cold to go outside, we improvise! Here's one of our favorite recipes for homemade snow ๐Ÿ‘‡

โ„ 1/2 cup of conditioner
โ„ 3 cups of baking soda
โ„ Small sticks
โ„ Loose parts
โ„ Cookie cutters
โ„ Cups

Start with 1/2 cup of conditioner and use a fork to stir in about 3 cups of baking soda. This snow packs very well and is great for making snowmen! Add sticks for arms. Use the loose parts for creative play and decorating the snowman. Use cookie cutters and cups for making shapes and even more fun!
