Our first Spring Fling was a success! Families and the community joined us for carnival games out on the playgrounds. We had a magic show inside for the families to enjoy. As part of our fund raiser, the teachers and children together created art pieces for a silent auction. They earned $400.00 for their creations. Without doubt, everyone from the families and teachers enjoyed the time together. We are looking forward to next year's Spring Fling.
For Mother's Day, we turned the conference room into the Mother's Day Market. Chef Deb put out a variety of breakfast items like muffins, fruit cups, breakfast bars and water. The children could 'shop' and placed the breakfast items they thought Mom would like in their shopping bag for her to take to work. Moms were surprised at the variety of the selection of the breakfast foods.
The big day is almost here!
Someone could not wait to see what was in the bag.
What are these eggs? What can I do with them? It was a chance to explore a new item in their classroom.
A day that celebrates moms is a perfect reason to cuddle up with your child and a good story.
The playground was scattered with multi-colored eggs for the children to find. For this child, it was a very successful find.
March Madness at Primrose School of Cherry Hill benefited one of our families foundation, 'Hold the Door for Others'. The foundation supports families through grief process and was founded after the family lost a loved one at 911. By the simple act of holding the door for others, people did make it out of the building. The hallway of the school was turned into a basketball court with many hoops of various heights for all the children. We were asking for a penny a shot. The children raised over $145.00 for the foundation.

You’ve heard the adage mother knows best. So why do parents choose Primrose?
We celebrated 'Read Across America' by celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday. Children brought in their favorite Dr. Seuss book or dress up like a character from Dr. Seuss. It was a special treat to have Horton come and visit us.

Having the quality Teacher that understands the importance of building that trusting relationship, is an important element in a child's development. Children need to learn that someone is going to respond to their needs and care for them. At the Primrose School of Cherry Hill, we accomplish this by having consistent and caring teacher in the same classroom everyday to provide the continuity of care and trust.

Does your child tell crazy fibs? Many parents of preschool-age children are concerned when their child starts to tell lies, but this is normal!
As you can see, the infant in this picture does not see himself but sees another infant. This is an important milestone when a child recognizes themselves and just another child in the mirror. It doesn't make a difference to the infant doing the kissing, they still wanted to kiss that infant.
