It is hard to believe that this is our last month this year. Our preschool year is winding down and many of our preschoolers will be off to kindergarten in the fall.
We thank you for entrusting your child to us this year. We have enjoyed working with all of the children in our care and have seen growth, development and skill acquisition in all of our preschoolers.
We have also witnessed how the children have grown in the way they deal with frustration and the care and concern they express for one another. Our preschoolers have made lifelong friends and connections with one another. We are really impressed with the extended attention spans of these little ones. Our circle times and instructional activities have really expanded as the kids are able to sit longer and listen. Hoorah for preschoolers!!! Please make note of the special events coming up. The end of the preschool year is special, whether it means coming to the end-of-year celebration or attending graduation.

This month your child will be participating in a variety of fun and educational activities and experiences as they learn all about gardens.
We will be digging in the dirt, planting seeds, celebrating National Bird Day & Kite day, making bird feeders, discussing Cinco De Mayo, making Mother’s Day Gifts, digging for worms, making bean gardens, observing the life cycle of a butterfly, and much more.
Please note the calendar concerning preschool graduation, end of the year celebration for 3’s, garden service day, and our last day of school.
Our 4’s classes will be visiting the Kindergarten classrooms on Wednesday, May 19th. The Kindergarten teachers have invited us to come and participate in an activity with them.
We currently have a waiting list for next year’s 4’s class and just a few more spots available for our 3’s class. If you are enrolled for next year and encounter any changes over the summer, please email right away so someone else may have your place.

Got Milk? Where did the milk come from? This month the preschoolers will learn the answer to this question and much more about life on a farm. We have a lot planned for the kids this month including a field trip to a local farm. The kids will participate in many “farm themed” educational based activities in the classroom. We will finish out the year with a market set up in our dramatic play area. The train center has been converted into a farm center. Dr. Miller (local dentist) has donated a large wooden barn with animals to our preschool.
This month the preschoolers will also make their own butter, have fun with western week, celebrate Earth Day, Easter Egg Hunt, and participate in National Library Day. Don’t be surprised if they come home chanting:
“Click-Clack Moo, Clickity-Clack Moo”.
We are also looking forward to one of our favorite books, “The Three Little Pigs”. Preschoolers love acting this one out.

Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed some time off to be with family and friends.
Thank you so much for giving us the privilege of working with your children. How lucky we are to be a part of their lives, and to watch them grow and develop into amazing little people.
As we start a new year at Learning for Life Preschool we are looking forward to some great discovery.
In January, we will learn all about penguins. The preschoolers will participate in many enrichment based activities including their first lapbook.
