Another Super Week of Afternoon Enrichment.

STEM ENRICHMENT Our class planted tulip bulbs in Hale Park; we can hardly wait for spring to see the results! We learned that bulbs have their own source of food inside them and we decided that the bulbs looked like onions in the inside and outside. The group came to the conclusion that onions are bulbs too! COOKING ENRICHMENT This week we made delicious

Apples and Carrots and so much More!

The children in Pre-K4C had so much fun meeting Ms. A and Mr. C these past two weeks.  They brought with them so many exciting projects.  We learned about the lifecycle of the apple, and conducted a really cool science experiment to see why apples float in water.  We dissected an apple and sharpened out number skills with a fun seed counting game!  


The children started a unit on Community Helpers.  They learned about different jobs and what these workers need to know and use to do their job.  They enjoyed a visit from Mr. Loretti, a police officer, who told them all about what police officers do.  The children also were taught about fire safety from a visit from local Metuchen fire fighters.  Thank you so
