Ms. Tiffany in our Mustang room has got two weeks full of fun! So far we’ve had waffles and our favorite toppings for lunch, we’ve done Picasso and pizza, a glow party, and next week there’s rumor of a Velcro wall at the park! Meanwhile the rest of the preschool is still in full swing! This week we started our first “ice cream day” of the year. Our friendly neighbors at Brain Freeze ice cream truck pull right up to the front of our preschool where each child will use their $1 to buy an ice cream. Every Wednesday!!! Spring fun has just begun.
The weather can be so unpredictable in Nevada at times. It doesn’t surprise us if we have all four seasons in one day. Right now, however, it is winter, and its hitting us hard! As much as we all love outdoor play, we as teachers need to find creative ways to keep kids busy and entertained while they are indoors. Most children, specifically ours, thrive outdoors. We want to keep that same pace of thriving even while they are indoors. A perfect, small example of this is Ms. Nancy, our new mustang teacher, brought buckets of snow into the preschool and placed them on a table as a center. Four kids to this center a time. She filled up spray bottles with water and food coloring so the children could colorfully spray their snow! Easy, fun, and great for fine motor skills. Whereas children are hard attention keepers, we managed to keep their attention with these snow buckets for quite some time. While yes, snow can throw a lot of routine off, we look at it as a good challenge to see what we can do to keep children entertained while they are indoors.
January is a month filled with eager anticipation of what lies in the year ahead! We just got done transitioning from holiday’s to a brand new year. This month we are busy building an addition onto the preschool. What better way to start the new year? Meanwhile, still continuing on with the day to day routine of all aged kids. We always look forward to the weeks ahead, months ahead, and years ahead here at Discoveries Preschool.
Another year with our graduating preschoolers. More than half of these kids have been with us since they were in our infant program. Days like this mark a very memorable moment in the life of our preschoolers. We couldn’t be more proud!
❤️Discoveries Preschool has many Animals visit our center as it’s so wonderful and educational for kids to learn and take care of all living beings❤️
Animal week here at Discoveries Preschool! We all pitched in and brought our special furry friends to Discoveries Preschool. From guinea pigs, chickens, turtles, reptiles and of course beautiful horses. The children were in absolute awe! Often times, like adults, children find comfort in our furry friends and we find this to be very important and fun.
It brings a change of pace to the day and a bit more excitement to the already exciting environment of our preschool. This week was a very special week and we’d like to share this short video clip of what one of the days entailed.
