There was nothing gray about May here at Midtown! Early in the month we talked about May Day, May the Fourth, and Cinco de Mayo. We had fun playing in the rain and making fresh bread. The class has been picking flowers from our garden for flower arranging as well as using them to make art projects.
Midway through the month was one of the most important days of the year – Mother’s Day. The children prepared for our annual Mother’s Day tea by picking chamomile and mint from our garden and used lemon balm to make our teas. Each child took turns making their gifts and cards and the class helped out mixing, rolling, and shaping cookies to serve at the Tea.
Our brilliant community of Moms.
At the end of such a busy month we even made time for a field trip to the Natural History Museum in Seabright. The class explored the museum and did a museum scavenger hunt. We admired the exhibits, climbed on the big whale outside and ate lunch in their outdoor amphitheater. We then headed to the beach with our families to play in the sand. So much fun was had by all – the children really love having their parents join us on field trips.
Somehow we’re already halfway through June! This month we say goodbye to our 9 Graduates who are moving on to Kindergarten. They and their families have been with us through the ups and downs of the pandemic so it is a special group and we’ll miss them loads. We still have a few Fall openings as a result so please do reach out if you’d like a tour or to discuss a schedule that would be right for your child.
