Up on the hill in East Andover, we are busily watching for signs of spring outside, as well as in our classroom, where there are eggs in the incubator and seedlings sprouting on the windowsills. We forced tulips and forsythia and are making predictions and recording our findings with words and pictures. We are planning our gardens, watching our perennials appear once again, reading books about spring, and enjoying the mud.
March was a very busy month, with six Proctor students working with us during their project period; an art show at the Bachelder Library showcasing beautiful works by the preschoolers; and a field trip to the New Hampshire Audubon in Concord, where we participated in a program called “Beginning Birds.”
Our parent education series continued with presentations on Parent Self-Care with social worker Sarah Gilman on March 22 and Challenging Behaviors with behaviorist Heather Hill on March 31. We are grateful to our presenters for sharing their knowledge and ideas with us!
A huge thank-you goes out to the community for supporting us at our recent spaghetti dinner fundraiser; our little school relies on fundraising to meet our operating budget, and we couldn’t do it without you!
Enrollment for next year is in full swing, with limited spaces still available. Please contact us at 735-5105 or EAVP@nulltds.net if you are interested in having your three-to-five-year-old attend EAVP in the fall.
