What beautiful fall weather we've been having! The children are able to enjoy some crisp, clean, warm air outside! We've been enjoying learning about our 5 senses and looking at, smelling, and seeing the changes in the seasons.
Welcome back to school! We are so excited to be here, and to have your children here with us! We welcome new friends, and welcome back returning friends as well. We have lots of fun and educational activities planned, so that the children will learn, grow, and have a good time! We welcome parent volunteers to come in and read, play, and enjoy some "school" time! Have a great day!
What better way to enjoy the outdoors than to gather together to fish! It's fun to carry on traditions, teach about the finer points of catching fish (whether to eat or release), and share some family time together. Lots of places to go, from the docks in Seattle to the Gold Creek Trout Farm in Woodinville and Springbrook Trout Farm in Renton. Check out takemefishing.org for mor info, too. Happy fishing!
We are studying about the deep blue sea this month! It gives us lots of opportunities to examine sea life, play in the water, and learn about water safety. Our favorite sea creature is the shark! Did you know sharks can have as many as 3,000 teeth, arranged in rows, in their mouths? There are over 500 species of sharks, and they've been around for over 420 MILLION YEARS? Sharks can range in size from mere inches to over 50 feet long! Wow!
We had lots of fun on our 1st field trip for Summer Camp. The kids played in the water, walked on the pier, found clam shells, played on the playground, and chased the birds!
Summer Camp for school agers starts June 26th and runs through August 29th. We have lots of fun activities planned, and field trips every Wednesday! There are fun weekly themes, sure to keep your school ager busy and happy! Space is limited, but we still have slots available. See our Summer Camp registration form under "Programs". See you there!
We released our painted lady butterflies! What an amazing experience to watch them go through metamorphoses! We love providing this opportunity to the children - they get so much out of it!
Our tiny little caterpillars have cocooned! We watch them every day and can sometimes see them moving! We should have butterflies by next week!
