Bancroft Outside Play | Chalk Art, Hula Hoops + Soft Balls!

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

At the start of the SPRING, I always like to make it a FUN EXPERIENCE as we prepare to make our way back OUT into the fabulous sun after a couple of months of the harsh Winter breeze. Spring officially hit us a bit later this year than we expected, but it finally appeared and let us just all agree — we were READY!

So needless to say, I bought a bunch of chunky chalk in all sorts of colors, hula hoops (because what little girl doesn’t enjoy a good waist exercise with a hoop?), and jumbo soft balls for our high-speed little boys in action!

Did they enjoy this?! Why yes, yes they did:

Bancroft Fun ‘N the Sun | Easter Outside Play + Egg Hunt!

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

EASTER is one of my favorite holidays! And this year (similar to last year), I prepared and hosted an Easter party + egg hunt for our CES kids. They were absolutely thrilled about the party the entire week and I almost cried on that Thursday because rain was forecasted for Friday (the day of the party). BUT, to my surprise and gratefulness, the rain HELD OFF for the entire day 🙂

During that week, we did coloring activities and a quick craft (making the Easter bags); and on the day of the party, we began our after-school activities with Easter inspired chocolates + cupcakes and proceeded outside for the Egg hunt.

Each class had their own egg hunt of course, during their scheduled outside play in which each child was instructed to find exactly 3 eggs to put in their bags. And towards the end of the day, all classes got to participate in one last hunt together. Boy did we have some fun!

Here’s what happened:

**And SPECIAL THANKS to those parents/nannies who allowed their child to stay longer that day to indulge in their egg hunt findings and play 🙂

Come Take A Quick Look Into Jo Wilson Elementary School

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

A couple of months back, we announced that one of our Kindergarten co-teachers, Ms. Helene Fisher would be moving on to coordinate the CES program at Jo Wilson Elementary School. Although we miss her each and every day, we’re here to let you know that all things are going well for her in her new environment with new friends!

She has had two opportunities to visit with the Kindergarteners at Bancroft, but sadly we have not received the same opp to visit with her 😦

But don’t fret! Here are just a few photos that she has offered to share with us. Enjoy!
