TODDLERS --- We are having a wild time this summer with all of our animal themed fun. If you haven’t already, be sure to check our Facebook page for the pictures from our Wildlife Wander. The children had so much fun looking for animals on the playground with their binoculars. They spotted a happy hippo, a silly giraffe, and a couple of super rare pink elephants.
We are doing our best to dodge the raindrops to get as much outside time as possible. We have a lot of fun planned for the month of August.
Be sure to like our Facebook page so you can see all the fun things our class is doing this summer.
