Lucy Chen visits Garden Preschool

April 10, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Garden Preschool Families,

Today we had the privilege of having Lucy Chen, Aiden Chen’s mother, in our classroom during morning work time! During this time she read books, that she brought from home, to the children in the book area. The children rather enjoyed a new face reading to them and Aiden enjoyed having his mother interacting with him and his friends in class.

Below are some pictures from the experience that I thought you would enjoy.

Spring Thaw Reminder

March 27, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

We know how important it is to support children in getting outside to experience and explore the outdoors every day. As snow has melted, we’ve had some wet and muddy areas on the playground. This certainly makes for an exciting playground to explore, but can definitely be the cause for some messy clothing!

As teachers juggle wardrobe changes, we ask that you please remember to send in extra clothes for your child. Tall rain boots may help as we make this transition. In addition, waterproof gloves and snow pants will help children stay warm and dry as they actively explore the playground. Labeling their articles of clothing also helps minimize confusion. We will have Gretchen’s House back up clothes available if needed. If your child does borrow GH clothes, please be sure to return them promptly so that other children have access to these items as well.  Thanks so much for your understanding as we make our way through the wet, muddy, but very welcome, spring weather.

Thank you!

Jamie

Hello Garden Preschool Families!

Here are the reminders for the week of March 16:

  • We are excited to say welcome back to Gabriel on Monday, March 16.
  • We will be having Tammy Holley gym time on Thursday, March 19, at 10:00.  This is a new date that was not on the original March calendar.  Please send gym shoes.

Well spring has finally sprung!  To those families who are new to the preschool playground you will learn that our playground does not thaw gracefully!  Please be sure your child has extra clothing in their cubby including sock.  If your child has puddle boots, those would be useful to send as well.  You might also want to check the shoe crate located on the porch by the wooden gate.  We ask the children to place hats and mittens in the shoe crate if they choose to take them off.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
