March 13, 2015 - Preschool, Preschool Weekly

The Nature Preschool at Irvine was overjoyed to be back for the first full week in a what felt like forever! Teachers and children alike were ecstatic to feel some warmer impending spring temperatures! The past 2 weeks we have been focusing on keeping ourselves healthy. We have explored healthy eating, exercise, and our emotional health as well! Discussions, role play, and puppet shows got the children brainstorming about different feelings and how we deal with them!

Some special visitors from Pearlstone farm joined us and assisted the children in starting seedlings! The children will tend to them here for now. Later this spring we will bring them back to Pearlstone to plant them in the ground!

Some exciting news for Mrs. Sophie! This was her last week before she goes on pregnancy leave! We all can’t wait to meet her sweet baby girl! Her classes surprised here with a shower on her last days and all the students and families wished her the best! We love you, Mrs. Sophie and we know how lucky that little girl is to have you as a momma! Her substitute, Miss Liz, is overjoyed to be a part of the team and is quickly becoming loved by the children!

Check in next week as we dive two feet first into spring!
