Preparing for our Thanksgiving Show!

At The Little School, shows play an important role in our curriculum. Our shows serve as an introduction to public speaking skills that students will use throughout the rest of their academic career. They also work as a big confidence boost, as they see their creative work come to life in front of an audience. In addition, students help to create their own costumes, as well as learning songs to perform. Learning through song is such a fun way for our little schoolers to learn information like what a colony is, or why the Wampanoag Indian Squanto was so important.

Our lessons also go beyond pilgrims and Native Americans. Students learn about symmetry, Native American art and architecture, as well as using directional art for their projects that also serve as the decor for our show!

Enjoy the photos and a have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

The Little School Circus 2014!

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, prancing ponies, lion tamers, acrobats and so much more! We loved sharing this with you all and creating all these special memories together.

Below is a collage of photo highlights from the day! Enjoy!

Mother’s Day Tea at The Little School of Waldwick!

TLC_Tea0919

On Wednesday, May 7th, 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.

Cream of The Crop!

Our students are the cream of the crop, and today they were able to enjoy picking some crops of their own from The Little School Garden! Students enjoyed a lesson on seeds and planting. Afterward, students picked their very own eggplants, tomatoes, corn, and string beans.

 

Summer Campers Travel the Globe!

During the third week of Summer Camp, our campers have been traveling the globe with their imaginations in hand! As the children learned about each continent, they created special “souvenirs’ from the different regions. Campers even created replicas of famous monuments from around the world! Here, two of our campers, Angeliki and Maria, are creating the stone facade on the Arc de Triomphe found in France!
