❄️ It was a magical winter solstice for our preschool. ❄️ Our teachers and family came together to host a fireside celebration marking the longest day of the year. We enjoyed s’mores and hot dogs roasted over the fire 🔥, a potluck dinner 🍲 and winter stories and music 📖🎶.

These special events are what the cooperative experience is all about. We extend the light and warm wishes to you and yours this winter. ❄️

Did you know that October is National Fire Prevention Month? Last week, our school visited the local fire station to meet firefighters and learn about fire safety! They were given tours of the new station on Wiehle Ave and watched as the fire fighters put on their uniform.

Field trips like these allow students to meet the first responders who they might encounter in an emergency and teach the important skills for staying safe!

One of our favorite preschool activities is skill building! Our teachers are experts at developing creative projects to help build our students fine motor skills. A few examples from the last few weeks include:

✔️ racing colored water droplets on wax paper
✔️ creating artwork with paint, acorns, and coffee cans
✔️ using tweezers to sort a variety of small objects

And much more!
