    Monthly Theme for October: Fairy Tales: Real and Make-Believe

    Beyond Centers and Circle Time is a play-based curriculum designed to provide educators with research-based strategies for creating loving, playful, and stimulating experiences for young children. Parents are encouraged to participate by sending in items related to our monthly themes (pictures, books, items beginning with the letter(s) of the month, etc.). Please see below in the section titled Parents.

    The experiences planned for the month of October will focus on real and make-believe. This theme is designed to help our students explore four well-known stories, while at the same time comparing them to what might really happen. The last week of the month our students will enjoy Cinderella's Ball!

    Parents: Here's how you can get involved.

If you have pictures or objects that begin with the letters Hh or Tt) please send those in too. We use them for literacy circle (All items sent in from home will be safely stored in a ziploc baggie with your child's name on it until the end of the month and returned to you).
