Pre-K Carwash

CarwashI always admire the skill building activities activities our teachers come up with. One hot day in June, on my workday we had a “carwash” – all tricycles, cars, ride-on toys and other vehicles were washed by the preschoolers.

It was a real low-work day for the working parents, all the kids were so busy and fascinated by this new activity. The children worked so well in teams and they stayed surprisingly dry too.

If you think about it, there is so much the kids can learn from this fun activity. Teamwork, sharing, taking care of and being responsible for their own needs and their own stuff, cleaning. Just like out motto: Learning Through Playing!

And it wasn’t just that the kiddos loved it – everything was sparkly clean at the end.

Birthday Party for the 2 Year Olds

The 2 year-olds celebrated a birthday a few weeks ago. The weather was beautiful the children got to run around outside and chase bubbles, what a fun event!

Thanks David for the great photos and the bubble machine.

As always with the Galleries, SL means slide show. The photos are small, so FS (full screen) will not work here.

Play Yard

Kids love our unique play yard designed by well-known architect Nelson Van Judah.

Nelson Van Judah was commissioned in 1967 to design our large outdoor play area. He was asked to make use of the materials we had readily available to us. Those were telephone poles, barrels and pipe. The nursery schools fathers executed the design The result was the unique playground we have today. Where else could a child climb into a telephone pole fort…

The unique playground features climbing structures, swings, slides, as well as a tire hill.
