The Grove School of Plano

A seriously fresh new preschool. Kristen Beasely
Head of School
p: 972-618-3523 We believe children learn through experience and doing.

That’s why kids at The Grove School sing, dance, count, write, paint, clang, dig, listen and whatever else moves and excites them. Our curriculum emphasizes both traditional academic subjects and hands-on thematic explorations that encourage healthy lifestyles

The color of good fortune - red - will be everywhere, especially in hongbao (mandarin) / lai see (Cantonese) where red envelopes are filled with money by married couples and given to friends and family; the money is usually an even number amount, except for "four" which sounds like the Chinese word for "death."
4. The year of the monkey! Characterized as witty, curious, intelligent, and playful.

Keep Texas Beautiful

The Native Plant Society of Texas will be providing small financial awards to public sites to create "Monarch Waystations." Applications are due by Feb. 15th! Don't miss this great opportunity to help restore Monarch habitats throughout Texas!


Kindergarten Bird Feeders

At the Grove we teach the children respect for all lives around us: plants, animals, and friends. Modeling and teaching empathy early in a child's life helps develop their own capacity for similar feelings and actions. Kinder worked on bird feeders for our outside spaces - winter can be a difficult time for birds: the days are short, and nights are often cold and long. The natural food supply has been consumed or is hidden by snow (well not in Texas), and most insects are dead or dormant.


Snowball Fight!

Pre-Kindergarten's new unit is "In the Winter" - students have been having safe and silly snowball fights in their amazing dramatic play! Fun and role playing are always important parts of learning!

How Process Art Experiences Support Preschoolers | National Association for the Education of...

The arts are so important to the development of young minds, young hearts, and young bodies! And it's not all about the finished product - in fact, in early stages, the experimentation, motor skill development, and decision making are all fostered through the processes of being creative and making! Is your goal to encourage children’s creativity through developmentally appropriate art experiences? Review the differences between process- and product-focused art to help you get started.


It's SUPER HERO day at school today! How is your child a Super Hero?

Parents, how many times have you asked your child "What did you learn today?" only to get the answer "Nothing"!? Well, we are trying a different approach: each teacher has a "Car Talk" board where they have given other questions and activities to promt your child into expressing what they have learned or enjoyed during the day! Make sure to check our your child's classroom "Car Talk" Board!

"I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit."
John Steinbeck

We also celebrated by creating tiger themed crafts today!


How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain

Take a walk outside - for your whole health (body, mind, and spirit)! ...Except, you should probably squeeze that walk in before 10am - it's HOT out there! A walk in the park may soothe the mind and, in the process, change the workings of our brains in ways that improve our mental health.
