Absolutely Incredible Kids!!!

Today, we were able to help you celebrate how absolutely incredible your children are. Thank you so much to all of the parents that took the time to write a quick note to their children on how incredible they think they are! The kids were so excited to get mail and have their mail read to them! The way that their faces brightened up when they realized they had gotten mail from you all! Founded by Camp Fire in 1997, Absolutely Incredible Kid Day is a national holiday that lifts up the kids in our lives. Every year, on the third Thursday of March, thousands of adults send notes, emails, letters, texts, videos (you choose!) to encourage and inspire young people across the country. 

So handsome and incredible

In The Grass

This week's FrogStreet theme is In The Grass. We've had fun with activities like move like a bug gross motor play, wiggly worm sensory bins, building our own bug, fly swatter paintings, and icy insect eggs. Our vote is that the Toddlers had the most fun with the fly swatter painting than any other group. They were so excited about hitting the table with the fly swatter that they all crowded around to watch friends when their turn was over. It was really awesome to see.

Also, this week Ms. Courtney is our Frogstreet Highlight of the Week! We are extremely proud of the work that she has done in Preschool 1 as well as Toddler 2. If you see her in the halls make sure to congratulate her! Way to go Ms. Courtney!

Read Across America Week

This week has been filled with lots of reading, learning, and more. We were beyond proud of the work that our teachers have put in to make the week a success. We made Dr Seuss hats and read some of our favorites written by him. Some of them we read more than once. As educators, this is one of the times of the year that is most rewarding to us. Listening to a child as for you to read a certain story until you know the words without looking at the pages is the ultimate highlight of our day. There are very few things that can compare or top it. We also had Spoiled Rotten come out and take our Spring Portraits. Will does an awesome job ensuring that the children fill loved and enjoy a time where memories are captured and storied away not just for you to view, but for them to take with them through life. We appreciate the hard work that he and his staff put in to capture moments like these. You should receive proofs for purchase inside of your emails within the next couple of weeks.

Some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books.

Happy Friday!!

We are ending this week with a BEAUTIFUL Friday! What a great day to be outdoors enjoying the weather. After being inside on and off over the last couple of months most of our friends were excited about getting outside. There was tons of free play time and lots of imagination gears turning inside of our little ones heads. Sensory is one of the main ways that children learn through play. We are going to continue to take advantage of the time that we can spend outdoors not just getting lots of sun, but also making sure that we are incorporating sensory to increase stimulation and learning.

Cars, Cars, Everywhere!

Smile big for the camera!

Health and Wellness

This week is filled with lots of health and wellness. On Monday, we had Brittney Adamiak, D.D.S. from Green Hills Pediatric Dentistry came to visit our school. She gave us lots of information about our teeth and how we should take care of them. It was so much fun being able to learn new things about our teeth!

One word.....priceless!

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.
