The Story Behind the Branch on the Wall

 One of our 3-year old students brought her teacher a large branch outside and said, "can we use this for art?" They cut out leaves and flowers from paper that all of the children had previously painted and together punched holes to hang them from the branches.  The children strung cut string through the leaves and carefully placed them on the branches attached to the wall.  Here is the final product, consisting of art, nature, science, fine motor skills and creativity

Healthy Belly

All of our children love the healthy snacks & lunches that are provided.  Most of our food is homemade daily with quality ingredients (bet you won't find that any other place).  This weeks menu included pita pizzas with red peppers, homemade bean & cheese corn quesadillas, baked sweet potato chips and turkey lettuce wraps.   Our meals are nut free & are gluten sensitive for children with allergies (even slight).  

And when we say we love our fruits & vegetables, we are serious!  Soon we will be planting our vegetable garden so the children will be able to see the process from seed to meals.  YUM!

Contact us if you are interested in your child becoming a Little Genius with a healthy belly!
