First Day Fun 2019-2020

Take a peek at all of the fun students had during Orientation! Seeing old friends and meeting new ones, Little School of Waldwick students had a blast on the playground, in the play room, using paint, making colorful creations and much more!

We are off to a great start and cannot wait for the fun and learning in the year ahead! Follow the link for more fun photos:

Magic Carpet Ride

For our final week of Summer Camp, Little Schoolers found their magic lamps and took a trip with Jasmine and Aladdin on a magic carpet ride! Campers journeyed to the great Sahara and explored the mystical Arabian Desert. Our camp transformed into a royal palace as we went in search of hidden treasures. Little School of Waldwick Campers had a special Story Time visit from two of our wonderful alumni, Marlie and Taylor! We used our magic carpets to travel in search of jewels and gold and even had a visit from Princess Jasmine!

Music with Elmo

1, 2, 3 come and sing along with see! During our Music with Elmo week, Little School of Waldwick campers learned that Elmo has a family and so do musical instruments! We made our own musical instruments and played together in The Little School band with a visit from Cookie Monster and his Sesame Street crew!

Little School Campers even participated in a child focus group run by Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street and more! Sesame Workshop travels all over to gain insight from child audiences to better their content and interview their target demographic. As an award-winning preschool, The Little School of Waldwick was the only school chosen in New Jersey and our campers were the lucky subjects!

Pirate & Mermaid Adventure

Ahoy Maytees! Join us in looking back at this fun filled pirate and mermaid adventure, or walk the plank! We had a blast for this under the sea fantasy as we swam with mermaids.  Our little scallywags were on the hunt for buried treasure with their telescopes in hand! Campers climbed aboard The Little School Pirate Ship with a real Pirate for some adventure on the high seas!  Yo-ho me hearties, Let’s Go!

Down on The Little School Farm

Grab you partner and do-si-do on down to The Little School Farm to see how much fun we had! Little School of Waldwick Campers were amazed to see The Little School transformed in to a Barnyard Bonanza! We learned how to milk a cow, explored animal sounds, planted crops, tasted our homegrown vegetables and much more farm fun! Campers took part in a milk taste test and graphed their favorite. We even had a visit from some barnyard friends with a live petting zoo at the end of our theme!

Party in the USA!

Oh say can you see… how much fun we had as we celebrated our nation’s Independence Day. Yankee Doodle rang through the halls as Little School of Waldwick campers sang their hearts out to a selection of classic patriotic tunes. The campers learned about Betsy Ross, the creator of the very first American flag, as well as the flag’s significance. We created a flag of our own, learned all about the Statue of Liberty and explored the symbols of America. We played games and even had a water balloon relay race! For our finale we marched in our very own patriotic parade!

Our Dads Rock!

On Wednesday, June 12th, students of our graduating class hosted a special Donuts with Dad event to celebrate Father’s Day. Students showed their dads how much they ROCK by singing special songs and creating projects with a Geology theme!

Graduates impressed their dads with their knowledge of Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic rocks and layers of the earth. After the show, Dads and grads enjoyed donuts and other treats while playing construction-themed games together!

At The Little School, our Dads truly ROCK and we are so thankful to have them in our Little School family!

Mother’s Day Tea Party 2019

On Friday, May 3rd, The Little School graduating class treated their mothers to an elegant brunch and performance.

Students sang songs filled with words of love for all their mothers to show their appreciation. Our students created special handmade hats and necklaces for the mommies to wear during the party. The walls were adorned with decorations made by the children, including a hand-drawn portrait of their mom! After their performance, students invited their mommy to sit while they served them muffins, fruit, cheese and crackers, and of course iced tea! A real treat for all of our hard-working, amazing Little School moms!

The Little School’s Director and educational staff strongly believe that there is an important connection between family and school, especially during the early years. As your child’s primary teacher and first educator, a parents role in their child’s early education is critical to their success!

Each year, we celebrate mothers at our Annual Mother’s Day Tea Party, a special event for students of our graduating class.
