Today the preschool took part in the Great California Shakeout. Schools, businesses, and companies across the state participate each year in practicing what to do in case of an earthquake. At the preschool we call our “duck and cover” procedure, “Bunnies in the Hole.” All the classes had a fantastic time running through the whole process from “duck and cover” to mustering all the way to the big field on the main campus. They kids did a great job staying safe and listening to their teachers!
We had our first Preschool Chapel of the school year and we’re so excited! It was a wonderful time spent together singing, worshiping, sharing Bible stories, and enjoying the beautiful day that the Lord has made.

How many children have been in our care since the beginning of our grand opening? Too many to count. 🥰Our first students are either entering college or entering a promising career. We celebrate and thank all the parents and spiritual leaders who helped guide their future and Plant a strong Christian seed.
On this 2020 school year many things are challenging us CovinaVirus, fires and earthquakes but with God’s will and grace we are standing strong. State regulation allowed us to open our doors with half of our classroom ratio and slowly we will be getting back to our full capacity. The children who are joining us are happy to be here exploring, learning our classroom routine, getting to know each other and learning about personal space 🙂. They are two, even as adults we are still learning about personal space.😀
ONE FOE THE MONEY, TWO FOR THE SHOW, THREE TO GET READY and FOUR TO “GO!” “Oh, Yes!” The weather was great, the kids were excited and ready to have fun all together as a big school.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.
February was an amazing month for Room 4. We got to celebrate Valentine’s Day in collaboration with our amazing Room 4 parents. We decorated cookies, shared valentines and showed appreciation for one another.

Pasadena Christian Preschool is blessed to be rich in culture. January 26, 2020 was the beginning of the Lunar New Year. In celebration of the new year our classroom made dumplings, practiced using chopsticks, made lanterns, and sang Chinese songs. Through first hand experience, the children got to learn about different aspects and traditions that some families do prior to Lunar New Year. This couldn’t be possible without our parent volunteers and donations. Thank you, parents!

Gross Motor Skills
Today, we introduced new tree logs into our outdoor patio play! Our younger pod friends felt on top of the world, as they climbed, balanced, stepped and jumped off. Check out our big smiles and our BIG gross motor skills!
Also, are you seeing these social skills?!? We’re taking turns, being patient, sharing space and encouraging each other! Look at us letting our light shine for Jesus!
Please, keep our outdoor classroom in mind if you come across fun natural materials or recyclables. We love to integrate the two–nature and play!
Happy New Year! We’re so happy to be back together in younger pod– exploring our winter themed activities. Check out some fun from our first week back!
For art last week, we painted with shades of blue to create snowman masterpieces!
Our snowflake counting game was a hit!
Check out how we scoop, pour, fill and dump salt at our winter sensory table!
It’s the question everyone is asking, Do you wanna build a snowman? In our dramatic play area, we built snow people! We counted the “snowboxes” and pointed out the different details, shapes and colors used for the parts of the snow people! We had a blast seeing how tall we could build it, and of course, knocking it down!
One of our gross motor activities is a snowman toss! Check out our friends working together to collect all the snowmen (styrofoam balls with snowmen faces) and toss them into the white basket!
Our friends are getting strong spiritually, socially, emotionally, cognitively and PHYSICALLY! On Thursday, our friends worked together to roll, flip, carry and move the BIG tires in our outdoor environment. Check out this teamwork!
