We’ve had a lot of excitement in the Preschool this week in anticipation of our Halloween parade and parties. All of our classes had a great time parading in costume with parents, grandparents, and special friends watching on Wednesday. After the parade, the Preschoolers enjoyed special snacks and fun parties in their individual classrooms. Thank you to all of the parents who helped with the parade or parties, or who came to be spectators! 

Did you know?
In each of our Preschool classrooms, we have dedicated centers for dramatic play. They may contain dolls, baby furniture, items for pet care, dress-up clothes, pretend registers, or other materials that invite children to use their imagination and pretend. Supporting this type of play gives our Preschoolers an opportunity to model the different roles they see each day. In the classroom, our teachers may observe children working through concerns or conflicts by role-playing. It’s through these play experiences that children work through differences with their classmates and practice skills such as planning and problem-solving. You can support imaginative play at home by providing props for your child’s recent interests.

Upcoming Dates
Friday, November 16th is our Thanksgiving Luncheon. The Preschool PA will send out more information about this event next week.
