Learning is FUN…and sometimes messy.


Every parent has or will face the frustration of having their child’s clothes ruined by something their child got messy doing.  Sometimes it seems the newer and more expensive the clothes, the sooner it will have a marker stain, a scissor hole, or a friction burn.  It is important that our students come to school ready to learn and ready for success. (belts and potty-training don’t mix!) When we are outside, it is likely that your child will get dirty  (sometimes very dirty.)  All of these things are evidence that learning is happening!  Whether in the classroom or during gross motor time, your child is diving into the business of honing their fine and gross motor skills and expanding their understanding of the world through sensory exploration. Many sources even feel getting a little dirty is healthy for your little one!


The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play. – Arnold J. Toynbee

Thanks for all you do!
