"Count Down to Next Year"

Guess what? You can help set your child up for success next school year with simple activities during summer break. Consider these:

● Practice skills he needs for being independent, such as buttoning, zipping, and snapping his clothes. Be sure to have him work on putting on his own jacket, too.

● Teach your youngster new jobs like making his bed or wiping the kitchen table. Doing small tasks according to your instructions will get him used to following directions in class.

● How many times in a minute can he jump? How many times can he sail a paper airplane? One-minute contests develop your child’s sense of time and make it easier for him to be patient.♥

preschool Chapel

Ourday is partnering with the Church of Messiah staff this year to conduct Preschool Chapel.  Preschool Chapel will be held once a month, September through May.  It will be held in our gym and will be approximately 15 minutes in length.  During Preschool Chapel the children will be exposed to Christian stories and teachings.  You are invited to attend. Please check the website monthly for dates and times.  We are excited to partner with the Church to provide this learning opportunity for our children.
