March has been a busy month for us and April looks like it will be just as busy!
During March the Preschoolers learned about Dr. Seuss, St. Patrick’s Day, spring and weather. During Dr. Seuss week we had parents come in and read Dr. Seuss books to their child’s class. The kids really enjoyed this and were able to hear a lot of different Dr. Seuss books. We ended the week with a pajama party, watching the movie “Horton Hears A Who” and playing some silly games.
Our week learning about St. Patrick’s Day was fun. A little Leprechaun played a lot of tricks on us this week. We tried really hard to catch him on Tuesday during our party but he left us a scavenger hunt and a small helping of his pot of gold. The final week in March the Preschoolers were busy learning about weather. We had a visit from Meteorologist Justin Gehrts from KCRG come in and talk to the children about weather! The kids loved having him here.
The school agers enjoyed there week off during spring break. We took a walk down to Quail Ridge Park, had a picnic and played. They also enjoyed a St. Patrick’s Day party full of games and a Leprechaun Scavenger Hunt. Chime Bars ended on March 11 with a field trip to Windmill Manor in Coralville. They played some songs for them and after Lynn took them out for ice cream. A special thank you to Lynn Jansen for volunteering her time and giving the children in our program a great learning experience. The kids really enjoy it and we are so blessed to be able to give them this opportunity.
As we move into April, the Preschoolers will be learning about pets, celebrating the week of the young child and Easter. During the week of the young child we will have a lot of activities this week for the kids and families. We will be having a pancake breakfast on Wednesday, April 15 from 6:30—8:30 am for all of our families. On Friday, April 17 we will have a Kids Carnival, a morning full of games, activities and a bouncy house! To end out the month we invite all of our families enrolled to join us for a family event at Sky Zone in Cedar Rapids. We look forward to a fun family event with all of our families! We will also be busy this month with Vision Screenings. This is a great, free service that we can offer to all of our families. We will also celebrate Easter with an Easter Egg Hunt.
The school agers will continue to play outside as the weather gets nicer! The end of the school year is coming up fast! We have started our enrollment for Summer Camp. It looks to be another fun-filled summer with a lot of exciting field trips and activities! The children are excited to start their summer, as are we.
We hope you all had a Happy Easter!!!
