Recycling in our classrooms is a fun game of saving and sorting. Primrose friend Megy helps our students keep count of cans, bottles and paper.
It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged. That's why purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers are key components of Balanced Learning. See how this time-tested approach with a strong emphasis on life skills and character development can help your child develop and excel.
We believe that learning is more fun when imaginations run wild. Discover four activities on our Pointers for Parents blog to extend learning through play at home: http://bit.ly/1q0ydkv
In PreSchool land Dr. Seuss' March 2nd birthday is a very big deal! In addition to dressing up all week with crazy socks and hair, students enjoyed a Pinterest-inspired Dr. Seuss snack at the end of the day with each of the ingredients representing a different Dr. Seuss book!
This month we would like to give a “shout out” to the Smith family! Sweet little Caleb is in our younger infant classroom.
Who doesn't love king cake for Mardis Gras? (minus the small plastic characters which would be a choking hazard!). Students enjoyed Ms. Juanita's pancake lunch and sample king cake at the end of the day to kick off the festive season.
Happy Chinese New Year -- the year of the Monkey! Teaching students about other cultures and traditions inspires curiosity and helps teach acceptance and cultural understanding, preparing our students to become future leaders. And who wouldn't like a surprise red envelope filled with gold chocolate coins? The red envelope symbolizes good luck and as well wards off evil spirits.

Friday was national puzzle day, and we had fun handing out puzzles to children and parents as they left at the end of the day. Why exactly are puzzles so important for children? Puzzles help with hand and eye coordination, hone fine motor skills, help teach problem solving skills, help develop memory and also provide an opportunity to set a goal and complete it, helping build self-esteem! For older children puzzles can serve as mini "group projects" and help children learn how to work together. This is why Primrose includes so many different types of puzzles in all of our classrooms and why it's important for parents and children to work on puzzles together at home!
This month we've been learning about all types of transportation: Land, Water and Air. Today the students cheered on their teachers dressed in their "homemade" transportation contraptions, ranging from buses, to police cars, to spaceships, to hot air balloons and more! After semi-final wins by Kindergarten, PreSchool 1 and Older Infants, PreSchool 1 edged out Kindergarten by a hair in the final race!
Who knew that January 19th is National Popcorn Day (or that they actually made a popcorn costume)! Students and parents alike enjoyed a bag of popcorn on the way out today. We're guessing the birds had a feast with the "popcorn droppings" in the parking lot!
It's national Rubber Duck day! Students will have fun picking out their favorite rubber ducky on the way out of school. It may take a bit longer to get to the car.....decisions, decisions, decisions!!
