Preschool Safety Walk

All of our Preschool programs went on a very important Safety Walk.  The purpose of the walk was to teach the children “street safety”.  Several days before the walk we discussed street safety with the preschoolers using pictures.   Today was the big day – we made a 30 minute round-trip walk to the University Hospitals Richmond Medical Center. During the walk we practiced walking on the sidewalk, stopping at the crosswalk, waiting if the sign indicates ‘do not cross’, and looking

Earth Day Celebration

To teach our kids about recycling and get them actively involved, we challenged our classrooms to an “Earth Day Competition”. The kids collect recyclables and brought them into the Center.  In total they collected over 5,000 pieces to be donated to the recycling center. All classrooms also made the school’s first Earth Day murals, made entirely of recycled materials.  These murals took on a life of their own very quickly!  Unlike other bulletin boards, these murals were 3-D thanks to
