 Preschool Parent Open House

This Thursday, September 7th, The First Academy Preschool will be hosting ‘A Preschool Parent Open House’ . You are invited to join us at 9:15am  in E2-Room 136 for a presentation, followed by a tour.  We cannot wait to welcome our families to our school family and to share more with you about our upcoming year!

 Classroom Spotlight:  Miss Casey’s 5-day 2’s

During teacher directed circle time, the teacher introduces new concepts and ideas for the week.

After introducing the color yellow, our friends did a color hunt around the classroom to find yellow objects.

This week we looked at ourselves in the mirror and talked about how each of us are different and special. God made everyone different but he loves us all.

We always end circle time by using our visual schedule to go over our daily routine. Knowing what comes next in the classroom routine helps lower stress and provides a sense of safety for our children.
