A Note From Our Principal

The year is off to a great start so far and we’re enjoying spending the winter season with you and your children. This time of year our students spend extra time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather, on our playgrounds and in our outdoor nature play area. We’re having a great time playing together!

We also want to extend a heartfelt welcome to the new families that joined us in January.  Have a wonderful month and Happy Valentine’s Day!

 

Sincerely,

Ms. Vici

3 No-Bake Recipes to Make with Your Preschooler this Valentine’s Day

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your little one by making some easy, festive snacks together! Spending time in the kitchen is a great way for your child to practice counting, following instructions, measuring and using sequence words.

Below are three quick snacks that require no baking.

Red Smoothie

Make a delicious, healthy smoothie using a handful of ice, ½ cup raspberries, ½ cup strawberries, ½ banana, and 1 cup yogurt. Ask your child to wash and measure the produce, add the ingredients to the blender, and press the “on” button.

Valentine Snack Board

Go grocery shopping with your child and ask him to pick a few of his favorite fruits, vegetables, and cheeses. Use a small, heart-shaped cookie cutter and create a festive snack board together. Encourage him to sort the items and count each one as he adds it to the plate.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Gather pretzel rods, chocolate bars or candy melts, and assorted red, white and pink sprinkles. Melt the chocolate according to package directions. Ask your child to dip the pretzel rods into the melted chocolate and top with sprinkles. Place the pretzels on wax paper and allow to dry.
