Brrrr! Our annual Little School Bear Hibernation interactive thematic unit is in full swing!
Our Little School of Waldwick students said goodbye to their teddy bears for the winter. We learned and sang songs about hibernation and gave our stuffed animals big bear hugs before placing them in our homemade Little School Bear Cave!
Check back in the spring to see how the bears reappear for our annual spring Bear Picnic!

Students at The Little School of Waldwick have been enjoying learning about Holidays Around the World during our December thematic unit. Over the past week, Little Schoolers have been exploring the meaning of Hanukkah as well as the traditions of food and fun. Students played Dreidel and won some gelt (Hebrew for money)! Today, they even enjoyed traditional latkes for lunch and talked about the symbolism of frying the potato pancakes in oil, remembering the miracle of the oil that lasted for 8 nights.
Little School of Waldwick students are also learning about other traditions and holidays celebrated around the world. Christmas, Eid, Diwali, and Kwanzaa are among the holidays that we have been sharing together.
The votes are in! Students at The Little School of Waldwick participated in Election Day by stepping into The Little School Ballot Booth and casting their vote for their favorite snack! Apples and Bananas came head to head for Decision 2018. Students learned that majority overrules. 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!

How lucky our Little School of Waldwick students were to have such great weather on their Nature Walk today! Our students from Building One went on a Science Exploration Nature Walk to get a first hand look at what they have been learning about during their science lesson. We explored the changing color of leaves, different leaf shapes, pine cones and more! Visit us on Facebook for photos from the science adventure.

What a wonderful back to school season it’s been so far!
We began our apple theme earlier this month with a lesson on legendary pioneer Johnny Chapman, who was born on September 26, 1774. Johnny was known to many as Johnny Appleseed, and was a pioneer who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia. He became an American legend due to his kind and generous ways, and his leadership in conservation.
We celebrated on Johnny’s real birthday, September 26th, with a ton of apple fun that included apple picking, tasting and graphing our favorite apples. We had lots of fun learning activities and singing about Johnny Appleseed!
Here are some photo highlights below!
The Little School of Waldwick is THE BEST KEPT SECRET!!! My kids wake up every morning and look forward to going to school. They teach our children while assessing and fulfilling individual needs to assure each student is successful. The teachers all work together to provide a positive, nurturing, clean and safe environment. They instill teamwork, self confidence and encourage individuality. This school is a DREAM!!! Thank you to Mrs. Maria and all the teachers! You are greatly appreciated and v…
The little school has changed are lives in so many ways,I could not believe all the different things they do for my son. From spelling and reading(that’s right reading and he’ just turned five) to all the little shows the kids put on for us. He all ways tells me about his teachers and the fun things they do together. makes me wish I went to a school like this when I was five, But even better my son gets to. Thank you little school!!
The Little School of Waldwick is definitely the best preschool around. Both my niece and nephew went there and are both ahead of the learning curve now. We started sending my daughter this year and she absolutely loves it. She enjoys going to school everyday to see her teachers and friends. It is amazing to see how much she has learned and her progress so far. I have to thank Ms. Maria and her staff for the wonderful caring and learning environment they provide.
My twin girls are students at The Little School of Walkwick, and I can say that there are probably other pre-schools that are very good, there is no school that is better than The Little School. The owner and teachers ensure that each child learns globally as well as specifically depending on the child’s needs. The productions — thanksgiving show, winter show, and annual circus to name a few — provide the children with a wonderful learning experience and self-esteem. The learning environment is …
Little School of Waldwick is FANTASTIC! Both children attended for 2 years each prior to Kindergarten. They were well prepared for their elementary education. Mrs. Maria & staff are wonderful. The facility is clean, comfortable & safe. I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made for my children & their pre-school experience. My oldest is now a steaight A 5th grader !!!
We absolutely LOVE the Little School of Waldwick. I recommend this preschool to everyone I know. I have sent both of my children there and can not give everyone there enough praise. They are so loving and caring my children love going to school everyday and come home bragging about all of the wonderful things they have learned. My daughter went onto kindergarten with a huge advantage and it’s all thanks to The Little School. I know see my son following in her footsteps.
The Little School of Waldwick is truly a one of a kind experience! I walked into the little school a year ago and was blown away. I have never seen a nursery school quite like this. Every room in the school is based on a theme and I’m telling you the room set up, with large murals and designs, etc will take your breath away. It’s simply incredible! The education is top-notch. My child is 4 years old and will write 2 or 3 whole sentences by herself. She knows how to do basic math, she can read sm…
The Little School of Waldwick provides a terrific education to young children. The director, Miss Maria is so involved with the education of each child. My son learned so much in the 2 year she was there. the teachers are wonderful too.
My granddaughters are both very bright but were immature at the time that they were ready to go to pre-school. After their first year at the Little School they were not only even brighter-but they had matured incredibly. The teachers did a wonderful job. They are very gentle with the kids and readily praise them. The projects and art work that I see sent home are just wonderful. This is a very creative environment which is evident the moment you walk through the front door!
The Little School is, by far, the BEST and ONLY place to have your child begin his/her school life. My 2 boys went there years ago – the formed their love of school and gained their sense of being and self-confidence. Through song and crafts and computers, they learned about “Voting” on Election Day, the “Mayflower” on Thanksgiving and “Hibernation” in the winter, just to name a few. Everything done at The Little School is done with a Pop and a Wow. Just walking inside, you take in the cleanline…
