A New Year, A New Class

Happy Labor Day! Labor Day marks the beginning of a new year of preschool at Miss Kandis: Preschool & Tumbling. Wednesday will be our first day of class! Miss Mikell and I are very excited about our theme for the year...

Life is a book. We fill the pages.

This year our curriculum is book based. That means each week we will read a book and pull topics and learning objectives from the story to teach the children. We hope the children will find this style of learning engaging and fun.

To kick off the year, we will be reading We Are In a Book by Mo Willems.


I look forward to seeing all my new students on Wednesday! Enjoy your last two days of Summer break!

XOXO,

Miss Kandis

Little Builders


One of our favorite places to visit is the Provo City Library. And right now is a great time to visit because it's the middle of summer and the weather is heating up! So if you're looking for a great activity for your preschoolers then definitely check out the Little Builders exhibit over there. This exhibit is geared toward kids between the ages of 2 and 7 but I took an 8 and 9 year old with me and they had a blast too. So it really is fun for all your children!

When you enter the 4th floor known as "The Attic" at the library the children get to dress up in hard hats and bright orange vests to get their imaginations rolling. They feel the part as they engage in different hands on building experiences such as building structures with blocks and pipes, using a pulley and conveyer belt, and hooking and moving blocks around with a child-sized crane.

Plan on on playing for at least an hour or two because there is so much for the children to get their little hands on. Oh, and did I mention it's FREE?!!!
