An Apple a Day!

 All week the children of AoHV have enjoyed learning everything about apples. They learned through many different activities with apples that activates their 5 senses. Each class painted with apples, made apple cinnamon scented play dough, had fresh apple slices for lunch, and even baked apple pie and apple fritters as a class! The toddler classes loved playing with their fall sensory bins! Today the Pre-K 2 children made hats and had a Johnny Appleseed parade through the school. We're so proud of how dedicated our educators are to help make this such a fun beginning of Fall!

Fall is for Family!

 At AoHV we love when the leaves change color, the weather gets crisp and cool, and celebrating upcoming Fall events with the children. There are so many fun and enriching activities to do and see, making memories, experiments, and having gatherings. Our favorite theme is Fall is for Family. The children all get to discuss what makes them special, highlighting their families and animals, similarities and differences, culture and unique characteristics. The friendships they build with their school family is genuine and long lasting. Shaping their experiences and promoting play teaches them all positive social skills and encourages responsible character and citizenship! We can't wait to show you more of our sweet school family!

Fall Educators Conference: Teacher Strong!

    This year our Fall Conference was conducted a little different than in previous years. Our special guest Mrs. Lisa Murphy held a zoom call to give us fun ideas of things to do with the children. Her goal was to help us identify and create child centered environments while using developmentally appropriate practices. 

     Each educator was given an Army style backpack with teacher goodies inside. It was so much fun winning special prizes and our teachers are all grateful to be such a special part of a wonderful company that holds so much value for the education of their children and employees. We're welcoming Fall soon!
