Summer campers in West Columbia, SC enjoyed a play called "Dino Tales" at the Columbia Marionette Theater. They were amazed by the large sized marionette puppets and how they were controlled by strings.

The campers even put on their own show with their marionette keepsakes!


Happy "Pick Blueberries" Day!

July is the peak month for harvesting blueberries. Did you know? Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent diseases, including heart disease and certain cancers.

So, who's going blueberry picking? 🙋‍♂️

Emotions can be confusing for young children. So, in June our Infants and Toddlers read through "If You're Happy and You Know It…" by Annie Kubler (you know the tune). 😀🎶

Students explored their emotions and the physiological responses that go along with emotions like being happy or being sad.😄😔 Looks like the Toddlers in Summerville, SC really nailed it!
