National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 IT’S A PINK OUT



 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, AOPP chose today to have a PINK Out. All our staff and kiddos wore some sort of pink and wore it with pride.

 




We had several friends have ribbons on their shirts, which is the symbol for breast cancer. Days like these when we join in unity to draw awareness for a good cause is the best.

National Pumpkin Seed Day

 National Pumpkin Seed Day




Today at AOPP, we had National Pumpkin Seed Day and all our older classes were able to dissect pumpkins.





This was the best thing ever and all the classes were fascinated with the way it felt inside and all our teachers asked them some open-ended questions to get them to become more detailed.

 




This was so fun that we had to go further with it and make Pumpkin Volcanoes. I sat in on Preschool 2’s fun and the kids’ expressions were very interesting. They all loved the Volcanoes but not so much of the feeling of the inside of a pumpkin.

Pajama Day

PJ Day








Today at AOPP, we had Pajama Day. This is the absolute best day to have. We are bringing in Fall in the most comfortable way. Wearing PJs to school and work for the staff makes this place feel like home. And that’s the feel we love to have.

 






AOPP is our home away from home. We spent most of our time growing, learning, building relationships, and loving each other each day. When you are comfortable, you feel amazing. Our staff and kiddos love PJ Days and the idea that they can roll out of bed and come to school.

Infant Music Class

 

Demaree Music

Here at the Academy, we have calendar activities set up for the entire month of fun stuff for our school to do. We participate in all kinds of activities and all our friends, absolutely, love them. But sometimes we find that we leave out some of our Infant Friends because the activities are more geared toward the older friends.



 

With that in mind, every other month with try to have an Infant Music Class with Demaree Music. This gives our infants time out of class, to experience music and fun and to make sure that they are incorporated in the activities we have.

 




Our three infant classrooms totally love the time spent with Ms. Demaree and exploring with balls, music instruments, ribbons and so much more. We are so happy to have these types of opportunities and the parents absolutely love that our infants are included.

Back to Curriculum- Goodbye Summer Program

FROG STREET CURRICULUM WEEK

Last week started back out Frog Street Curriculum from our awesome Summer program. Our curriculum is one of our main attractions at the Academy and many reasons why people choose our childcare development agency over so many others.





Also, last week we introduced our froggy friends, which each curriculum age group has their own Frog Street friends who visit occasionally. We also had our Froggy Friends, Ace, come to visit the school and take pictures, give hugs and lots of high-fives.








Our teachers have been prepping and preparing for the curriculum to start back for the past few weeks and they were pumped and excited about it starting. They’ve done so many new activities and have been about to reinvent some of the old ones.




This has been one fun week at the Academy.
