ABC7 Visits PCS Preschool!

Click HERE to view us on ABC7!

The students in Room 1 have shown a keen interest in news casting and weather reporting over the past few weeks, so the teachers set up an ABC7 themed news room in the dramatic play center. Much to our delight, Phillip Palmer offered to come and visit!!

The students (and teachers!) were brimming with excitement this morning when Phillip Palmer and Mr. Chris, the camera man, made their appearance this morning. The students got to see the camera, hold the microphone and even go inside the truck!

After a presentation from Mr. Phillip, and a very lively Q&A from the students, the children showed Mr. Phillip their “news station” and pretended to put on their own news cast!

This story will be featured on ABC7 on Friday, February 9th between 6:00 -7:00 am.

February 2018 Preschool News and Calendar of Events

During the month of January, the students all enjoyed investigations into winter, snow, ice, and all things COLD! We played with ice, enjoyed a snowball target practice outside, and learned about winter animals. After just a few short days of cooler weather, winter has seemingly come and gone here in SoCal (sigh!).

We are now moving into the month of LOVE here at preschool! Classrooms will be colored with red, white and pink while students learn about loving others, God’s love for them, friendship, and the holiday of Valentine’s Day. Many classrooms will be celebrating with a special party, so be on the lookout for details from your child’s teacher.


Mark your calendars: Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on February 9th (teacher in-service) and February 19th (Presidents’ Day). Enjoy the extra time with your precious little ones!

Blueberry Pancakes and Trains

We had a fantastic week making scrumptious pancakes and building grand train tracks with our new train toys. As our field trip to the train station draws closer, we are excited to see how invested and interested the children are when it comes to learning about trains and playing with trains. In addition, we are also learning about an American folk hero and train track hero named John Henry!

Hello, from Room 2!

Hi guys! It’s been a long while since we’ve last checked in! We hope this finds you well and enjoying the first day of February! (Can you believe it?!)๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’˜โ„๏ธ

Room 2 has been busy transitioning back into the rhythm of learning and having fun! We’ve been hard at work practicing our counting, letter recognition, and have been intentional about getting our hands into some science experiments!

Room 2 had the awesome opportunity to learn about worm anatomy!๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜† It was quite the experience!! We were so excited to see our friends be excited to learn! We loved learning about how worms help to keep our earth healthy, so that things are able to grow nice and strong in the ground! They are nature’s littlest farmers! We also learned about salt and how salt affects ice! Our friends had an amazing time seeing the salt melt ice and we added some fun colors too, and tracked the salt! It was so fun!

Small groups continue to be a blast for both friends and teachers! We love getting excited about learning! We have also been working hard on our numbers and letters, using fun things like salt and buttons to practice!


We love what we do here. God is so faithful and good and his love is always present, shaping us in our heart and guiding our learning. It’s the most precious thing in the world to see God in the lives of each of our Room 2 friends. That’s the real treasure here, and we can’t believe we get to see it all happen. Wow.โœจ

One last thing, we’ve been really intentional about talking about obedience this past month and what it means for us and for God when we choose to obey. The Bible tells us in Luke 11:28 that Jesus said that those who hear the word of God and obey it are blessed. We’ve discussed obedience every day at school and have been intentional to really explain to our friends that the choice to obey God, parents, teachers, and just good and healthy authority ultimately brings us good things; God’s goodness. We encourage you to ask our friends about obedience and keep the conversation going at home. God loves when we obey, because it shows maturity and it shows that we are ready to be trusted with more of the blessings he wants to give us. So good!

We hope to be more frequent with keeping you in the loop about our happenings here in Room 2! Thanks for checking in and we’ll see you around!๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

P.S. Some extras! Enjoy!

Squishy Squeezy Slime!

Last week we had the opportunity to make Gak, also known by the kids as slime. It is a glue based polymer substance that was and still is popular with the children. As a matter of fact, it’s pretty fun for the teachers in Room 3 as well. Be sure to be careful if you attempt to make this at home because just like glue, it will stick but it won’t come off easily.
