Toddler Provocations

As you may of heard, this is the summer of provocations here at HTB!  Even our toddlers are getting in on the action!  A provocation provokes the children's imagination and lets their imagination do the work!  In this specific provocation, we used literature to encourage their minds!  The book entitled "Stick and Stone" was read to the class and then the loose parts were set out on a table.  As the children played with the loose parts, our educators ask them open ended questions to inspire them to create their own version of the story!

Kindergarten Boot Camp Spirit Week!

We are so impressed with our KBC students!  This is the first week of Kindergarten Boot Camp and we kicked off with a spirit week including Wacky Sock Day, Tourist Day, Camo Day and Cafeteria Day!  Cafeteria Day is every Tuesday for the rest of the summer and we will wear our KBC shirts every Thursday.  They were so responsible signing themselves in everyday and bringing their folders back from home!  

We are very much looking forward to seeing all of these kiddos blossom and go on to do great things!  
Don't forget...Graduation is Friday, July 13 at 6:30 pm at the Brentwood Country Club!

Psalm 96:11 - Outdoor Play Week

Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad.
Psalm 96:11

This week we kicked off our summer theme, Power to Pray and Play, where we learn through play based activities!  We set up all sorts of fun activities for Outdoor Play Week such as tree bark rubbings, outdoor sticky walls, planting flowers and we even had our JAM session outside!  It has been a fun week so far and we can't wait for our first water play day tomorrow!
