First day of pre-K

Goodbye pre-school....Grace started pre-kindergarten today! Did you know there was such a thing?
One thing I love about Grace's daycare/school is that the children transition each year. So far she has been in 4 different classes at the school - toddlers, discovery preschool (bigger toddlers), preschool, and now pre-K.
They are an NAEYC accreditted center and they follow a set curriculum where a weekly school theme is adapted to meet the developmental level of the children in each room. Since we have been there they haven't repeated a theme at all so the exposure she has gotten to topics like Egypt, gooey science, community workers, and dinosaurs have been fun ways to explore letters, number concepts, and emergent reading.
Grace's new teacher, Ms. Elyse, is also new to the school. I think this is going to be learning and growing experience for both of them!
