Thank you so much for your amazing support of the preschool. We are so truly blessed by your precious families and thank you for choosing our preschool to serve your family!
We also learned about how some animals are pets and other animals are wild animals.
We separated pictures of animals based on whether they were pets or wild animals.
We also enjoyed using our gross motor skills to jump across an obstacle course we made with our new playground equipment! It was a fun week!
