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!
At the Little School, we had such a wonderful and meaningful Thanksgiving Show. Our students learned all about the history behind the very first Thanksgiving through lessons, crafts, and songs. They put on a spectacular performance and we are so grateful for them and for all of you.
Here’s are some highlights from our special performance, and a link to see the full Thanksgiving Show album! Enjoy!
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!
Oh, the places they’ll go!
Students at The Little School of Waldwick celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss with a pajama party and a delicious green eggs and ham lunch! Oh, and a quick tip: We didn’t use green food coloring to make the eggs green for our Little Schoolers. The eggs’ green color comes from puréed organic spinach!
Our fun day was filled with whimsical rhymes from Dr. Seuss books and striped cat hats! Students practiced rhyming words by constructing “word families” during language arts. Students even measured their own feet after reading Seuss’ The Foot Book. A great time was had by all. Wearing pajamas and tall hats – it was a ball!
Students at The Little School are learning all about winter and hibernation! We asked our students to bring in a teddy, and together they put their little teddy friends into a cozy handmade hibernation cave. They will emerge this spring, just in time for The Little School annual teddy picnic, where students welcome back their little furry friends into the warmer weather.
Our little school students also explored snow art the Monday after the big blizzard! They spray painted snow mounds and made a mosaic of colorful, frosty art. They had such a blast!
Stay warm out there,
The Little School of Waldwick is the best nursery school out there. The director, Miss Maria does a super job with her program. Her children do all sorts of terrific projects as a group, like building a cave for polar bears while at the same time learning all about winter animals. She puts on grand show, like a circus at the end of the year and a mother’s day brunch. Once you walk into the school, you’ll see what I mean. It’s a spectacular place for kids. Love it.
My three children have all been students at The Little School and are so well prepared for elementary school that it almost seems as if they were home-schooled. In fact, Maria, the director, and the extraordinary teachers treat every single student with love and personalized attention which fortifies their strengths and gently addresses the needs of every child in each area where he or she requires a little extra help. Each teacher is carefully selected and trained by Maria. They all bring the s…
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.
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 !!!
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 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 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.
If you want a premiere nursery school for your child, then go to the Little School of Waldwick. I toured quite a few school before my wife and I chose them. We thought they had the best facilities and most courteous staff. We were right. Having been there two years now, this school amazes us all the time. They put on great holiday festivities and have THE most amazing circus, with the children participating as the show people, at then end of the school year. Terrific school. They get my vote.
My daughter Katiya had gone to The Little School for 3 years and she LOVED it. She came home everyday and shared something new that she had learned. She had grown & matured so much within days, weeks, and months from the experience that, that school has taught her, it was AMAZING!!!! Maria and the staff have showed so much love to my daughter, they were like our extended family. I also loved the anatomy project. All the holidays that they taught the children was superb. I had tears in my eyes at…
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…
