Preschool Open House


I can’t believe how quickly the summer has passed! I have enjoyed the break but I always look forward to the new school year and seeing new faces in our preschool program! We will be hosting an open house on Wednesday July 30th from 5:30pm to 7pm at the Early Learning Academy. This is a chance to complete registration if you have not already done so. Returning students will need to complete updated registration forms and make sure that all health records are current. This is also a chance for students to meet their teachers, see their preschool classrooms and meet other students. We will be grilling out so come with an appetite!

We look forward to a new year of learning and exploration with your child!

Reading Begins at Birth


The Governor’s office of early childhood has released July’s newsletter on the importance of reading to your child. See below:

You can help your children arrive at kindergarten ready to grow, ready to learn and ready to succeed by doing ​simple, every-day tasks and activities. The KYGOEC sends out a newsletter for families each month that includes information and ideas on how to help children develop in their earliest years. This month, we talk about the importance of reading to your children beginning at birth. You can view these newsletters online or you can print and share with family and friends.

We continuosly enroll throughout the year as well so please contact us when your child turns three to have them screened for possible services. Children can qualify for FREE preschool by having a developmental delay or as a four year old (the child has to be four by August 1st of the school year) with a family that meets the 150% poverty guidelines. We also take tuition students as we have room for a fee of $40 a week.

The New Playground is installed!


The new playground was installed and the preschoolers got to play on it for the first time yesterday! It was fun to watch through my window when they ran out to the playground for the first time screaming with excitement! One child even yelled, “this is awesome!”

We hope that the new playground will be a great addition to our center. The preschool teachers and I met with the company to make sure that there are lots of fixtures to encourage large gross motor skills. The tunnel is also a popular spot so far. We even included some outdoor musical instruments such as drums and a xylophone.

We have had a lot of visitors to our preschool in the last few weeks! Last week we had bunnies come visit the children. They had a blast hunting for easter eggs on the same day. The weather was nice and I think we can say that spring is finally here!
