In Art Enrichment we discussed impressionism and showed pictures of works from Monet. We talked about how the impressionist painters were more concerned with light and color than the details of an object. These painters liked to work outside and use the natural daylight to highlight the colors and shadows; we also talked about how they had to paint quickly before the daylight changed which is why they didn’t have as much detail in their pictures.
CNS has been an absolute blessing for my family. I couldn’t think of a better place for both of my children to have their first experience of school. My daughter Julia attended CNS for two years: in the three-year-old program and then for the four-year-old pre-K program. She is now in 2nd grade and looks forward to picking up her younger brother from CNS everyday and giving all of her former preschool teachers a big hug. She has such great memories of her time there. My son Joey is now in his second year at CNS in Mrs. Smith’s pre-K class. This is the first year we tried out the afternoon enrichment programs and we are thrilled with how fun and exciting his days are. Joey adores Mrs Smith and all of his classmates and he really loves the art, music, & cooking enrichment classes. Both of my children love going to school every single day because of the support, love and acceptance they received at CNS. Plus, Joey says “It’s so much FUN!!”
The staff at CNS has become our extended family and the friendships we have made with other CNS families are going to be lifelong. I am going to be so sad next year when my youngest is ready to move on to kindergarten and our time at community nursery school will be over.
