Hip Hip Horray, it's Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day was a HUGE success. We spent the day of loving showing it in a mighty way. We started the morning showering our teachers with treats. The looks on their faces were that of the joy of a child. We were extremely happy that we were able to make their day special. The kids were over the top excited all of the treats that they received throughout the day. PreK did an awesome job with name recognition and handing out their Valentines. There were also parties, parties, parties galore. Remember that parents as also invited to attend. We would love to see your shining faces during our St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

Love is in the Air

We are gearing up for Valentine's Day here at AOMF. The halls are being decorated and the classes have tons of art going on the walls. This week we will have our classroom parties and our Parent's Night Out. We look forward to seeing the smiling faces of those who have decided to take the time to have a night out without the kiddos. We also want to take the time to showcase one of our awesome educators here at our location. Ms. Lisa is one of our teachers in our Preschool 2 classroom. We are super excited about how she goes above and beyond to make sure the Frogstreet curriculum is implemented into the lives of our children. When it comes to lesson planning and being prepared she is top notch. This comes from the tons of experience that she has obtained. Not just inside the classroom, but as management as well. She is our Frogstreet highlight and we are beyond excited about what we will see next from her. If you see her in the hallway make sure to let her know she is appreciated. Last, but def not least, please take the time to stop by and give us a google review. For each family that writes a review your name will be placed in a drawing to win a target gift card. We love to hear feedback. Let us know how we are doing.

Falling in Love with Learning

In the month of January we are gearing up for tons of learning. We will enter into talking about more Shapes and Sizes in the toddler classes. In our Three's classroom, they will be discussing Creative Me. What a wonderful time for them to discover new things about themselves. In the PreK classroom, they will be learning about Stories and Rhymes. We can't wait to see what all the classrooms have in store for the month of Love. 

Such a loving smile to go along with such an awesome hat. 

Hanging sensory is so much fun. 

Everyone loves Ms. Jennifer.

Snow Days, Snow Days, what a way to spend the day!

Last week was beyond eventful. We received our first snow of the year! Although we were so wishing to have it for Christmas, a white New Years is great as well. Thank all of you for being so patient while we were making sure to keep all families and staff safe. We couldn't ask for a better group of people to spend our days with. Most of the children were elated by the snow and a little sad that we didn't get to play in it. The temperature warmed up a enough for us to get a couple of minutes in what was left of the snow covered playground. Below are some of our friends enjoying their time outside.

Happy New Year

Welcome back after the new year. Is it just us or did 2017 pass by like the blink of an eye and just like that we are one week down in 2018!! As your children grow and the time passes remember that the Tadpoles app has an option to choose to view all of the memories your little ones have created with us. It will be a great reference to use just to look back and say remember when. The time that they are small is only a nanosecond compared to their lifetime. We are excited that we can provide such a service for to our families.

We started with the out with lots of new faces!! This was very exciting to say the least. Along with the new starts we had a lot of kiddos who transitioned into new classrooms. This transition ran so smoothly we barely even noticed it happened. It couldn't have happened this way without the awesome help of our rock star teachers. Be sure to let them know just how fabulous they are. Affirmation and reassurance doesn't stop after you enter adulthood. We love to hear how great we are and how much our hard work is appreciated. 

We had tons of art and really fun activities to jumpstart the new year. January is Fitness Fanatics month and we started the month with a more physical version of Simon Says. We made fireworks art work as well. Below are some of the pictures that we captured through the week. We ended the week with a sensory activity called Castle in the Clouds with blocks and whipped cream.

Lastly, but def not least we want to take the time to introduce something that you might have noticed on your way out each day. We have designated a bulletin board specifically for a teacher or teachers who has shown exemplary usage of the FrogStreet curriculum in their classroom. Be on the lookout to see if your child's teacher is featured from week to week.

Happy Holidays

After coming back from the break we hope that everyone has had a great holiday season thus far. The halls have been quiet compared to their normal hustle and bustle. We can't wait to get everything back up to speed. We miss seeing all the kiddos faces as well as our staff. We are also excited about all of the brand new faces that we will see in the new year. In light of this we would like to share a article that we think might come in handy. It is listed at the bottom of this posting. Being a new mom can be scary and exciting at the same time. Our goal is to make sure that everyone's experience with the Academy is the best possible. We hope that the article provided is helpful and we can't wait to have you with us.

The week before Christmas at AOMF is so much fun. We had Christmas parties, a PJ and movie day, along with gifts, gifts and more gifts. The biggest gifts of all were the school wide book exchange. Each class was able to exchange books from under our Christmas tree. The children really enjoyed it. Some didn't quite understand that they couldn't get the book that their parents brought in to give to someone else. It was so cute. We love our Academy family and we wish you blessings and love this Holiday season.

This week has been filled with lots of great activities and even a visit from Santa Claus. We were really excited to have Santa Claus from North Pole. We invited him with milk and cookies, which we know are his favorite as well as some hot chocolate and lots of toppings to help decorate cookies. He took lots of pictures and had even more stories. He was really a sight to beyond. Some of our friends were all about Santa, some were indifferent, and some were just downright not having it. It was precious and an awesome experience. We hope that this is a tradition that we can continue to have for many more years to come.
