April in the Children’s Room
Spring is a time for new beginnings in the Children’s Room. We are reintroducing our computers, wall manipulatives, coloring sheets, sensory table, games, and toys. Come visit and stay a while! We’re a great destination for playdates, grandparent outings, or rainy days.
In-room activities this month include the Monthly Mission animal match game. Investigate seedlings in our Science Nook. Celebrate National Poetry month by composing a quick poem on our magnetic poetry board.
