Switzerland in the Summer!

We’ve had a wonderful week with all our new friends in Room 5! We turned the dramatic play center of our classroom into a Swiss Chalet and Hot Cocoa Lodge to go with our Passport to Learning weekly theme of Switzerland! We extended the experience with a Frozen Hot Cocoa party this morning… it was just the pick-me-up we all needed to get our muscles pumping in the awesome Pump’n Splash playground in the Outdoor Classroom! 

The Frozen Hot Cocoa was kind of a big hit…

The Pump’n Splash playground was a S.T.E.M. learning paradise! Not only did we get awesome gross motor physical exercise, and stay cool in this summer heat- but we learned first hand lessons about weight and mass, suction, balance, force, and conservation! …A pretty fun way to learn about physics in preschool…

Have a safe and blessed Independence Day everybody, God Bless America! 

Session One is Done!

What a hot and fun summer it’s been so far! Room 5 has been busily enjoying the weekly themes and activities in our PCPS Passport to Learning program!

We’ve been to Alaska, Russia, and this week we took a layover in China! We can’t wait for all the fun and new cultures we get to learn about in our next session of summer camp! 😊


It has been such a hot week! But, that didn’t stop us from having fun in the sun. Taking advantage that the older pod went on a field trip, the younger pod spent a beautiful afternoon on the big yard. We had the chance to take a dip in the pools, go down the water slide, and enjoy each other’s company. In honor of exploring Norway, our class made delicious Krumkake😋 Our little chefs were so excited about measuring, pouring and mixing the ingredients. However, the best part was eating them along with blueberries and jam! Fri-yay came too soon! We enjoyed this warm day at the big school. Our children and teachers had the chance to go in a water bouncy house! Yay! Each and every smile is a blessing to us and we thank the Lord for being part of the children’s development🙏🏻 

We pray for more joyous moments like these❤️❤️

Water play and fun galore! 

Room 3 had an awesome time this week playing with water and listening to stories in the Monrovia Library. On Tuesday we had the opportunity to splash in pools on the Big Field. We went to Chapel on Wednesday and learned about Jonah and the Whale. On Thursday we went to the Monrovia library and read stories, danced, had lunch and ate Yogurtland. We had a chance of plans on Friday due to the heat, but that meant that the kids were able to enjoy a bouncy house filled with water! As a bonus we made ice cream to defeat the heat. Overall, it was an incredibly hot and fun filled week.

Magical Moments…..

Well with two weeks of Summer Camp under our belts we are in full swing! Today was simply magical at PCS! We had a very special visitor today, The Amazing Dave! No, no he’s not our newest staff member. He is a magician! We trotted over to the library on the “Big School” campus, our favorite walk, to see a magic show! We laughed, screamed, oohed and ahhed ( we didn’t however get a T-Shirt). Lots of our friends got to volunteer to help with the magic tricks and let their lights shine. We even got to bring home a book of magic tricks to try on you folks! 😜. A great time was had by all! We also enjoyed swimming, snow cones, a Russian fairy tale movie, Veggie Tales, and Beef Stroganoff this week! Whew! Next week it’s on to Norway, Viking style! Well, Christian Vikings anyway….God Bless till we meet again 😍

Kickoff to an awesome summer!

Room 3 had lots of fun this week exploring the classroom and outdoors. Whether it be our new summer toys inside the classroom or the fun activities outside the clsssroom, there were a variety of activities for the kids to enjoy. Our Alaskan theme was well matched our “snowman” cooking project and the Wolf show. We’re happy to say that this was an amazing start to what will be a fantastic summer filled with excitement. 

Our first 2017 Summer fun

We are very happy to see all your little ones back to enjoy a “fun adventure this summer.” We also welcome our new little face and invite you to have a look at our 1st week of summer. 

Our Outdoor Classroom Makeover – The New Shed

What did the teachers really do when the children were away last week? Well, aside from preparing the classrooms for their new crew of children, learning new Vacation BIble School songs for this summer’s “Deep Sea Discovery VBS”, and cleaning out all the nooks and crannies, we also gave the Outdoor Classroom a makeover! We can’t wait to show you our new “rustic” shed that was installed last week. On Wednesday, we watched in awe as 5 guys from Shed World came out to hand build this custom shed in one day! This shed adds character to our yard, provides a fun porch for the children to play on, and also creates much needed storage for our outdoor curriculum. It also beautifully complements our newly revamped garden! We can’t wait to show it off to the children when they join us again on Monday!
