"Names are the sweetest and most important sound in any language."
— Dale Carnegie
This week was all about names, names, names at Playtown Preschool Center! We practiced name recognition and writing our names many different ways. We had so much fun our preschoolers might not have even realized they were also learning!

Even though summer is done, we can still have fun!
Learning is FUN here at Playtown Preschool Center! We are off to a great start and have been busy exploring our classroom and learning new skills.

- Benjamin Franklin
We are officially back to school! We had a great couple of first days back here at Playtown! Lots of new friendships and memories made already and we have just begun!
We want to know your favorite thing about the back-to-school season—whether you’re heading back this year (as a student or a teacher!), you’re a parent, or you’ve been out of school for years!
We’ll go first: We love fresh school supplies. New glue, sharp crayons and fresh markers!

Last day for Preschool! Please tell us what did you like about this school year?
What a interesting, educational, interactive, in-house field trip!
One thing that we hear over and over again from the kids is how much they enjoy spending quality time with the people they love.
Let's challenge one another to spend more face-to-face time with one another this summer and less time on our screens and on the couch.
Here are some ideas to get you started!
What's one of your favorite things to do with those you love?
Yesterday during Chapel, we turned to Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God." To absorb the lesson, we had the kids play "Who can be still the longest". This might just be the teachers' new favorite game!
What's one of your favorite games to play with kids?
Did you know that there's a lot of research behind smiling? Smiles are mood boosters, help us relax, and can make us more productive. At Playtown Preschool Center, there are lots of smiling faces and new friendships being formed. So, here are some recent photos of some of the smiling faces we see each day 😊 Make sure to share a smile with someone today!
Recently, Playtown received the Quality Improvements Grant from the State of Illinois. With the funds, new science area toys, learning games, gross motor equipment, a pretend grocery store, and new chairs have all been purchased. We're so thankful for this grant and the new items for our classroom. We even had fun with all the boxes!
What new toy would you have been most excited about?
