Birthday/Celebrations

We love to recognize the children and the milestone moments in their lives. Whether acknowledging a birthday or some other special time, our desire is to always appropriately celebrate each momentous occasion with the age and maturity of the children in mind. Below you will find a link to our Birthday Recognition Policy & Pre-approved Birthday Treats list. Please use it as a resource when planning your own special moments that you want to share with us.

Fun in the Sun 2021!

We are so thrilled to be back for summer camp this year! It has been an interesting journey for us, here at the preschool, since the start of the pandemic but we feel very blessed to be back in action for camp again. This of course would not be possible without the amazing talents and dedication of our fantastic staff. We can’t begin to thank each member of our preschool team enough for all they do but we can try. Thank you team, keep up the incredible work! You are deeply loved and greatly appreciated.

We would also like to thank all of our families for entrusting us with the enormous responsibility of caring for their children. It is huge blessing and we are so glad that we can be together enjoying summer camp and all the adventures ahead.

Thank you God for your love, grace, guidance, and protection.

Aloha Days! – Wednesday, May 26th & Thursday, May 27th – MINIMUM DAYS

We will be celebrating the conclusion of our year with special photo ops at drop off and much more.

Just a friendly reminder of our Preschool Parking Lot Rules/Requests

  1. Please drive with care keeping an eye on speed and kiddos in the lot.
  2. Children should be directed to stay on the sidewalk during pick-up and drop-off except when accessing their vehicles. Little people are very hard to spot between cars.
  3. Due to limited spaces in our lot, quick drop-offs and pick-ups are ideal.

Thanks for helping us keep our little ones safe, healthy, and happy.

Chapel – April 2021

This April’s chapel focused on the “Good News” of Christ resurrections. While Easter is a few weeks behind us, we aspire to celebrate Jesus’ love, power, and promise everyday.

We also learned the words and Mr. Tim’s hand motions to Lord I Lift Your Name On High. Below you will find a YouTube link to a fun version of the song and a preschool favorite.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: 
While we were still sinners, 
Christ died for us. 
Romans 5:8 (NIV)

We revisited the details of the Easter Story by reading from our Rhyme Bible. It was a great way to recall everything that happened on that incredible day. He is risen!

Teacher In-Service Day – Thursday, April 1st STUDENT FREE

It is time for our last teacher in-service day of the school year. These days are crucial and provided us the much needed time for training, planning, preparation, and cleaning that can’t be achieved while the children are on campus. We are grateful for these opportunities to grow and improve all that we do in service of the children and families.

Good Friday – Friday, April 2nd PRESCHOOL CLOSED

We will be celebrating the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ by taking the day to reflect on the gift that the cross represents for all of us.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2

Easter Sunday – Sunday, April 4th

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Matthew 28:5-6

Hallelujah, He is risen!!

Preschool Fire Drill

Practicing staying safe is an important part of our preschool curriculum. This includes periodic fire/earthquake drills. On Thursday, March 11 the entire preschool took part in a fire drill. Everyone exited the preschool to muster up in the preschool parking lot for a quick headcount. The children did a fantastic job listening to teachers and we had an incredibly smooth drill. Great work everyone!

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10

Chapel – February 2021

February Chapel is always a great time to talk about love and specifically, God’s love.

For this chapel we read 1 John 4:7-13, which discusses how much God loves us and the role we play in sharing God’s love with the world.

Image result for 1 John 4:8

Our focus song was G.O.D. is L.O.V.E. based on 1 John 4:8 & 16 and we learned how to spell it out using American sign language.

We also enjoyed reading the book Because God Loves Me! Below you will find the link to Mr. Tim’s YouTube version of the story.

We concluded chapel by brainstorming how we can show love at the preschool. The most popular answers across all the classrooms were…share, give hugs, say “hi”, and give cards.

We are so grateful for the love of God and the ability to share that love with the world.
