A Note From Our Principal

Now more than ever, we are in awe of the flexibility and resilience of our students and families. We have enjoyed seeing you all online the past few weeks and are hopeful that we can be together again soon. In the meantime, we are in the process of planning for summer and have setup a few fun activities for us to do “together” this month. We hope you can join in!


Ms. Mila, Principal

Summer Camp

We understand that there are many unknowns right now, and are offering our families an opportunity to register for summer camp and receive a full refund of any deposit paid if we are unable to offer camp or if your child is unable to attend. Registering for camp now will save your child’s spot in our program and enable us to continue to plan field trips and special events. Please let us know if you’d like to register!

Mother’s Day Virtual Tea Party

We can’t be together to celebrate Mother’s Day this year and want to acknowledge all of the amazing things our moms, grandmothers, aunts and mother figures are doing during this challenging time. On Friday, May 8th we invite you all to pop into your child’s virtual class to share a Mother’s Day moment with your fellow moms. Bring your favorite tea or beverage!

School-wide Pajama Party

Wear your best jammies and join us on Zoom on Friday, May 22nd at 7:30 p.m. for a pajama party and bedtime story! Our Principal will be reading a special story and singing a goodnight song for everyone to enjoy. An invite with the link to join will be sent out later this week. We hope you can join us!

Spread the word and save on tuition!

Do you have a friend or family member who is looking for additional enrichment and learning for their preschooler during the day? Refer them to our Distance Learning program to earn one free week of tuition. Contact us for more details!

5 Ways to Shake Up Your Weekend Routine


Weekends mean more to families now than ever before. They’re a time to reconnect with each other and decompress from the daily stress of working and schooling at home. Below are five fun ways to shake up your typical weekend routine.

1. Breakfast in Bed

Start the weekend off with making breakfast and enjoying it in bed. Encourage your child to select the menu, measure and mix ingredients, and gather utensils and napkins. Snuggle up together and eat the meal you made.

2. Indoor Campout

Host a family campout or blanket fort in the living room. Put on comfy pajamas, make s’mores, and turn on a favorite movie. Read books about camping before bed. Some of our favorites include Curious George Goes Camping by Margret Rey, Llama Llama Loves Camping by Anna Dewdney, and Flashlight by Lizi Boyd.

3. Create Signs for Essential Workers

Provide your child with markers, crayons and paper. Encourage him to create signs that express thanks for essential workers. Use this an opportunity to talk about the importance of love and gratitude. Tape the signs to your window for everyone to see.

4. Virtual Dance Party

Invite extended family members to join you for a dance party using a video conferencing service, such as FaceTime or Zoom. Encourage everyone to submit song requests in advance and dress up in their favorite silly outfits.

5. Bedtime Story Remix

Reverse the roles by asking your child to walk you through his bedtime routine. Encourage him to help you brush your teeth, tuck you into bed, and read you a story. It’s a fun way to help your child remember the things he needs to do at nighttime.
