It has been a busy couple of months up on the hill at preschool! We are back up to pre-COVID enrollment with 21 children. Teachers are on their toes keeping up with the busy and unique personalities we have in our group, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Our interest lately includes sensory activities like fingerpainting, floam and making slime for Halloween! These types of activities help support fine motor muscles which is an important foundation for writing. Speaking of Halloween, we loved walking to the WAB Library in our costumes and listening to Halloween stories then parading around campus.

On November 8, the preschoolers participated in voting! We set up our very own voting booth complete with ballots! Our vote was for our favorite animal pet, a cat or dog. Cats won the vote 9 to 2.
