Caterpillars (Nursery-Preschool) 20161002_101332

(Warm and loving care for our very little ones and Celebrating Me and My World for our preschoolers. This curriculum teaches our children to celebrate their own personal gifts and talents. From a place of feeling special and worthy, the curriculum asks our children to expand their new sense of appreciation to people and things around them.)

Volunteers this Sunday: Jennifer Ikeda (supervisor), Barbara Ramey

Youth: Collier and Avery  

  • Last Sunday: My World Has Fish! We explored under the sea, the wonderful creatures to discover just out of our sight.
  • This Sunday: My World Has Animals! The next class in the Me and My World series is the discovery of furry and not so furry creatures that inhabit our world. There are so many animals that are in our lives that we barely pay attention to. This lesson, we hope to expand our children’s awareness to include the lovely creatures of the forest and fields.
  • Next Sunday: My World Has Birds! Good transcendentalist children look up to see the creatures in the sky. All creatures in the earth and sky are part of my world.
