Preschool Playgroup

Our new ward here does a 3 year old Preschool playgroup.  There are 2 groups with 5-6 kids in each group.  There was an opening in the one group so Chandler gets to be a part of it.  It's 2 days a week in the morning for an hour.  The moms in the group take turns having the kids each week.  They sing songs, do the pledge of allegiance, learn about something new (colors, shapes, animals, etc.), and do some sort of craft.  Today Chandler made a heart shaped sugar cookie that has his name on it and colored a heart that said, "I love mom."  They also do field trips once a month where we carpool to do some activity with the kids.  Seems like it will be a great outlet for Chan, give him more social skills and help him learn some new things.  It sure beats paying $60+ a month for preschool here which seems to be the going rate.

Here is Chan with his cookie outside our new home. 

An outside picture of the new house. (I know the for sale sign is still out front. I'm ready to rip it out....except it's really stuck in there with the snow. Can't believe the realtor hasn't come to get it yet...)

That is cool you have a group for Chandler to go to. :) It will be good for him to have that & interact with other kids. So how often do you have to have it at your house?

That playgroup will be so fun for Chandler I bet! I love your house by the way. Very cute and I bet you're loving it. We've hit quite a few speed bumps with us getting into a home so we'll see what happens.

Cute house, I had to call the realtor to come get the sign when we bought our home. I'm sure they "forget" because it's free advertising. I can't wait to see more pics. I wish we had a preschool group in our ward, what a good idea. I can't believe Rowan is 1, it's true, things are definitely going much faster the second time around. Happy Birthday Rowan!!!

Happy birthday to your little guy. Paisley is almost a year old and I can't believe it either! It just goes way too fast. I think that little play group sounds way fun. I hope I can find something like that for Paisley when she is old enough.

Chandler, looks so grown up. Sad I wasn't there for Rowan birthday. Love the birthday cake face. See you in a few days.

Um.... $60 a month is GREAT! Actually, around these parts it is pretty well known that Utah is where it's at for preschool. The High School program is $65 a month here but ANYTHING else is $150 and above. It makes me so mad because it's only for a couple hours a week. I am sure hoping Dean gets accepted into the preschool and the High School here. Otherwise, I will be homeschool-preschooling him (and that should be fun with 2 more kiddos to deal with).

and dial up modem finally comes through for me. First off, thanks for posting a picture of you town house. It is cute and very modern looking. Preschool playgroups, sounds like a great idea. preschool around here is easily over $100.00, which is why we never did it for the girls.

Hope your cookies turned out great today - Splenda and all.

Happy belated birthday to Rowan, loved the frosting, I wanted to lick it off of his cheeks. he he..

O.k.... that's gross.

Lol

Cute house! So excited to finally see a picture! More please! Have you been painting at all??

I'm a terrible mom, I don't do playgroups. Well, not since our weekly one back in the day. I guess nothing compares to that.... ;-)
