IMG_0020

Students had so much fun during their Orientation Days at The Little School, reconnecting with friends and meeting new ones! Painting, play dough, and fun in the play room were just some of the exciting activities our Little Schoolers enjoyed. We are looking forward to another amazing year of fun and learning at The Little School.

Our Preschool Summer Campers had a great Dino Week at The Little School of Waldwick Summer Camp. Last week, our little campers became junior paleontologists! They learned about dinosaurs, explored the earth, dug for fossils and exhibited their findings last Friday afternoon!

Crisp air, trees, birds, butterflies, and so much s’more!… The Little School of Waldwick campers had their backpacks ready and set up their tents for a fun week of camping! We got the campfire started as we learned how much fun a week of the great outdoors can be! Campers enjoyed a nature walk and camp cookout right here at The Little School campground!

Holiday Show 2016!

The Little School put on the annual holiday show which included a very special “It’s a Small World” theme, where our students wore native dress in celebration of cultures and religions from around the world. Our students also performed holiday classics and did their own impressive interpretations of ‘Magical Menorah Candles’, ‘Chorus of Christmas Trees’, ‘Kwanzaa Kinara Candles’, and our very own ‘Magnificent Manger Scene’, among many others. Even Santa joined us at the end of the performance to celebrate, take photos, and share gifts! What a special performance and afternoon it was.

Thank you for all who came to celebrate with us and a round of applause for our Little School performers who did such an amazing job!

Below are the highlights of our special performance! Enjoy it all and happy new year!

Election Day at The Little School!

The Little School students also participated in Election Day! Today they voted on their afternoon snack. Is it apples or bananas? After all ballots were cast – turns out the apples won by a landslide!

Students also used their math skills to graph and find the winner of our snack election! Democracy in action, folks!

Our little pumpkins had an amazing time with some hands-on learning in the patch at The Little School this week.

Students were able to witness different stages of the pumpkin life cycle as we identified seeds, vines, leaves, baby green pumpkins, and mature orange pumpkins. We even found a few gourds and tomatoes in our patch!

We had an absolutely wonderful day at the annual Little School Circus! The weather was beautiful, the children excited and ready, and all of you wonderful parents, family and friends gathered under the big top to watch the magic unfold.

We had ringmasters, tight rope walkers, lion tamers, silly seals, dazzling dancers, acrobats and so much more! We loved sharing this with you all and creating all these special memories together.

Below are some photo highlights from the day! Enjoy!
