OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF PRESCHOOLERS: During Bible Story one day, the story was about Jesus’ baptism.  The teacher didn’t know what kind of reaction she would get, especially since some may not attend a church and have no background experience with a baptism. (Even if they attend church regularly, they may not have any reference for baptism in a river as the story stated.)  After the story, time was allowed for the group to wonder about what they had just heard.  A student shared that his favorite (or maybe the most important) part was when Jesus was hypnotized!  It took all for the teacher to contain composure and a straight face to say, “You liked when Jesus was baptized?”   They are learning….

OUTDOOR CLASSROOM is taking shape.  Walk by the fenced outdoor area on a nice spring day. You can hear the joyous sounds of children.  You will see children running, climbing on fallen logs, hopping from stump to stump building balance and strengthening muscles.  You will see children “nesting” in cozy areas, or building structures with pieces of branches and logs and using their creativity and imagination.  You will see children digging in the dirt and mulch, finding worms and wondering about what will happen if they plant a found pinecone.  You will see children turning over stumps to discover what is underneath.  You will see children engaged with God’s natural world and loving every minute of it.

From time to time we like to remind our preschool families that Main Street Preschool’s  SCHOLARSHIP FUND is a self-supporting fund for preschool families who may need financial aid for a month or few.  There are gold-colored brochures available in the Waiting Areas and the Office if you would like to contribute toward a preschooler’s experience for next school year.  Our KROGER program and ongoing contributions from the church congregation has made this effort possible so far.

Please join our KROGER “Reward” program.  For $5, you receive a Kroger Card that has $5 on it, and you add money to it at a Kroger Service Desk.   MAINSTREET receives 4% each time Kroger Cards are used for purchases, including gas.  It’s easy to join!  Call the preschool office at 669-4707 or the church office at 667-2318 for your Kroger card.  We’d love your help as we increase our program offerings and our Scholarship Fund.

HOME-SCHOOL CONNECTION:  Set a consistent bedtime routine when the child is very young: perhaps a bath, a story or song, a cuddle and a goodnight kiss.
