Today is National STEM/STEAM Day. We celebrated the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics through a variety of activities. Our young scientists, engineers, mathematicians, artists, and teachers could be seen using their magnifying glasses to get a closer look at the specimens, practicing sequencing with shapes and colors (early coding), comparing weights of different objects, testing the differences with different vehicle ramps, creating marble mazes, using patterns to create bracelets, and much more!

Jellyfish are sea animals with a soft, jellylike body. They have no brain, heart, bones, or eyes. Some jellyfish are clear, but others are vibrant colors of pink, yellow, blue, and purple. Some can be bioluminescent, which means they produce their own light. Jellyfish have been around for millions of years, even before dinosaurs lived on the Earth.

World Jellyfish Day is November 3, and is celebrated to raise awareness about jellyfish and their role in the ecosystem. Take a look at how DVFRC celebrated World Jellyfish Day!

DVFRC in the community...

We enjoyed participating in the Harvest Festival at Crosswinds Presbyterian Church last week. The event was filled with trunk or treat, pumpkin decorating, bounce houses, games, and more! DVFRC distributed free books to children who attended. We also had several games that were designed to build early childhood skills. Thank you for letting us take part in your event!

Deer Valley Family Resource Center invited the Early Learning Center families to join us for a Fall Celebration. We created watercolor leaves, painted ghosts, counted pumpkin seeds, and played a fall matching game. The celebration ended on a sweet note, decorating cookies in fall colors! We hope our 2's and 3's had as much fun as we did!

Unfortunately, there will be a delay with registration for August classes. The air conditioning units at the Copper Creek location stopped working over the summer. We are working on having them replaced, but the process is taking a little longer than expected. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold classes at the Family Resource Center at Copper Creek at this time. We are hoping to have the new units up and running before August 1st. We are currently working on some back up locations/options for classes in the event that the A/C is not functional by then. With that being said, we want to ensure that a back up plan is in place before opening registration.

Our families mean so much to us, and we want to continue to provide you with quality opportunities to enjoy these experiences with your child(ren). We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. We appreciate your understanding.

We will post the August calendar a few days before opening registration so that you will have the new registration date.
