March has come in like a lamb instead of a lion and we are so happy about that. The children are enjoying the warmer temperatures and getting outside for play time.
This month the children are learning about space, dinosaurs, and Spring. I am amazed to hear the children chatting about all of the fun things there are learning. The end of March will end with a week of learning about Community Helpers. We are excited to welcome the West Grove Fire Department as well as so many of our parents who will be sharing how they are local community helpers.
This month we are also welcoming some new friends to our preschool. Three of our classrooms are currently waiting for praying mantis babies to hatch out of their egg case. This is a new experience for us and we can’t wait to see them. In a few weeks, we will also be watching caterpillars and ladybugs develop and grow. It is so fun for the children to learn and take care of our special friends.
