Tot School

Have you heard the news?  I have tot school starting in just 3 weeks. Tot School is an amazing theme based exploration of books and manipulatives intended to be a child's first experience away from mom.  Tot school is a drop off, once a week adventure.  I'm hosting tot school starting this spring and all the way through May 2019.  Then I'll start a year of preschool A and follow that with a year of preschool B.  Most kids that go through my whole program are reading and know the foundations of math before they begin kindergarten.  Plus, we have a TON of fun along the way!  Check out our Tot School theme based curriculum here.  Check out past tot school classes here.  What are you waiting for?  Come over and check it out for yourself!  Contact Miss Amanda at littleadventurespreschool {at} gmail {dot} ... you know the rest!

Robotics

Robotics has become a wonderful part of my life.  After having the pleasure of taking a Carnegie Mellon University course aimed at teachers who are teaching robotics I feel on fire with the love of all things robotics and coding.  I can't wait to share that with you!  I'm currently teaching Elementary Robotics for Cherry Creek School District and I have a number of upcoming SPRING BREAK and SUMMER robotics camps that I'm hosting (not affiliated with Cherry Creek Schools).  Feel free to shoot me an email at nexushomeschool@gmail for more information.

Kindergarten Prep

Hello families that have sweet preschoolers starting kindergarten this fall!  I'm excited to present a Kindergarten Prep camp to target all the awesome skills every child needs to have before kindergarten.  I may not have been able to teach them kindergarten, but consider this a Preschool A and Preschool B Boot Camp.  All the good things smashed together in an outrageously amazing adventure!  Shoot me an email to request registration forms.  I look forward to hearing from you!

We're On Our Way Back!

Can you believe that the last time I posted here I was THIS pregnant?
Now I have a 1 1/2 year old running around and it's time to start getting the word out that we're coming back! 
Tot School for 2 and 3 year olds will start this summer (2018) with a 6 week session!  The long term plan is Tot School for 2/3 year olds for 2018/2019, then Preschool A for 3/4 year olds in 2019/2020, and Preschool B for 4/5 year olds 2020/2021!

It's going to be AMAZING and I can't wait to work with this wonderful age again.  Do you know anyone who'd be interested in joining our class?  Please send them my way! LittleAdventuresPreschool {at} gmail [dot] .... you know the rest if you're not a robot ... right?

Not to be outdone by all the AWESOME that two and three year olds will get to experience with me I am putting together a few SPECTACULAR Spring Break and Summer Camps that will knock the socks off your older kids (PreK-10 years old).  In the works includes ROBOTICS and CODING levels 1-4, Kindergarten Prep (for all those groovy kids starting Kindergarten this fall), Writing Workshop (for writers preK-2nd grade), and an Electronic Tinkering MakerSpace Workshop.  The ideas are even blowing me away!  If you have an older kid that I haven't seen in a while I'd love to have you come back and learn and play!  If you've never taken a class from me, now is your chance.  2018 is going to be MARVELOUS!! Let me know what you're interested in at LittleAdventuresPreschool {at} gmail [dot] .... you know the rest if you're not a robot ... right?

I can't wait to get learning with you all!

Little Adventures Preschool Graduation 2016

We were so excited about graduation today.  Today is a very special day.  Today we celebrate YOUR children's life and times in preschool!
It's hard for many of you to believe that the time has come for your children...your babies, to be beginning kindergarten, isn't it?  Some of these wonderful children started coming for tot school 4 years ago when they were itty bitty.  I remember kids who would cry and cry, not wanting to be left behind, but quickly finding their way to the sandbox or another fun activity as moms gave their children space to be without them.
The beginning of the school year, whether four years ago or only ten months ago, was a time of building trust with the children...and with you.  It was a time of building relationships together and creating a team with one shared goal: Providing your children with what they needed to develop and grow as preschoolers.  
That trust was built, relationships and a team created.  Language was developed to describe ourselves as learners, readers, bucket fillers, muscle builders, writers, artists, friends and hard workers.  We intentionally tackled challenging concepts and learned how to be successful as a member of a group, a friend and a learner.  We moved through the year - as a team - growing and learning and building a foundation your children will take with them to Kindergarten.
And now, it is very hard for ME to believe your children are leaving me!  You have entrusted the most important thing in your lives to me - your child.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate that trust!  Thank you for sharing your children with me.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family during this time.
I will miss your children more than you know.  But, I will smile through the goodbye tears because I am so grateful to have been a part of their lives and your family during this time.
It's time to say good-bye.
Our class has come to an end.
I've made more cherished memories
And many more friends.

I've watched your children learn and grow
And change from day to day.
I hope that all the things we've done 
Have helped in some small way.

So it's with happy memories
I send them out the door,
With great hope and expectations
For what next year holds in store.

Last Day of Preschool!

We had a great last day of preschool.  We started by writing about our favorite memories of preschool and then sharing them with the class.  After that we practiced for our graduation performance - that will be super cute!
 We enjoyed some time outside and came in when the wind got too yucky.  What a great group of kids!  They've grown so much!
