Today our Summer Adventure program was joined by Magic Brush Pottery! The children were able to pick a piece of pottery and create their own design.
Today we were joined by Andrea and Emma from the ArtMobile! Our Summer Adventure Program made butterfly houses! The ArtMobile is a mobile art studio where people (ages 5 and up) can explore art through a variety of materials. The mobile studio will come to you or a specified location. There is no mess to clean up, as the classes will be held in the truck. Classes include painting, drawing, clay, free play with materials, and open-ended classes for exploration.
Children are never too young to learn about the importance of helping others.
The month of August we recognize, Ms. Caitlin Fennessey, as the Apple of Our Eye. She started in January 2018 and in those eight months at Primrose she has become one of the most valuable faculty on our team. Ms. Caitlin Fennessey is always smiling and engaged with the children. Since she arrived in preschool she has taken the curriculum in stride. She comes to work in a positive mood and brighten everyone's day. She ensures that the curriculum is being implemented consistently and has been a huge asset to the development of the children in her room. She preps the curriculum in advance, keeps her assessments up to date and always has a clean and organized classroom. Ms. Fennessey has not only been successful in the classroom but outside the classroom as well. She helped with hair design at the Spring Fling in May and did a wonderful job. Ms. Fennessey also manages our incident log under our Executive Director, Megan Sheehan. She arrives to work early and respects the community in which we all have worked to create. Ms. Fennessey is always in a great mood and is willing to help out when needed. Congratulations to this exceptional early education professional.
Today our Summer Adventure Club was joined by Aaron and Chloe from Saltbox Kitchen to cook their own lunch. They used homemade granola, yogurt, and raspberries to create personal parfaits. Then they moved on to using farm fresh ingredients to make caprese salads. They ended the class by learning about the science behind roasting while slicing up some roast chicken!

When it comes to parenting challenges, helping your child move beyond the pacifier is often a task that’s easier said than done.
On Saturday, June 30th, we celebrated our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten graduates at Marshall Simonds Auditorium. The children smiled and loved being on stage in caps and gowns.

Our Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten children helped to plant strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers and green beans today in the Primrose Patch! The children will care for the crops throughout the summer. We are all excited to taste the yummy fruits and veggies that grow.
During an emergency, it’s important for children to understand there are caring adults who will help keep them safe.
As a parent or caretaker, thinking about natural disasters or other emergency situations can be unsettling and difficult.
