Nailed it. HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all you sweet little monsters out there! We had another fabulous HALLOWEEN BASH in the KIDS FIRST Teddy Bear Class. We created Spider Magnets and delicious, spooky Grave Digger Treats. A special thank you to Elizabeth Porter, who provided the craft idea and the adorable shovels! We also heard our hilarious Skeleton Hiccups book, and then danced to the Monster Mash at our Pumpkin Walk contest, winning a Pumpkin Light Stake, played a Witch Hat Ring Toss Game, earning a Treat Bag, and then spun around in circles for our Pin the Nose on the Big Orange Pumpkin, earning an adorable Mini Pumpkin! The Purple People Eater, Witch Doctor and Walking Through the Cemetery songs brought us into the Halloween spirit while we feasted on our Halloween appropriate snacks; red delicious fall apples w/peanut butter, candy corn pineapple, red vampire chips, ghost pretzels, Halloween cupcakes, fruit roll-ups, chocolate milk & purple people eater juice. And then winding down the activities with Alvin & the Chipmunks meet the Wolfman made it all that.


I did it…finally! I created a Yearly Preschool Curriculum Book. It is available via amazon.com (all proceeds benefit Kids First Learning Center). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1693413779/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Pink House, Purple Cow is a yearly curriculum book—using The Big Kid Method—that allows children to have creative expression while developing knowledge as well as life skills. Mental challenges via cognitive aerobics, science experiments, music exposure, mathematical games, art therapy, language activities, social/emotional lessons, gross and fine motor physical growth exercises are provided through teacher directed and child directed activities. Each day specific areas are targeted with repetition and consistency as the key.


The Big Kid Method has been in practice for over twenty years at Kids First Learning Center with a remarkable success rate; having the majority of Pre-Kindergarten graduates soar to the top of their class in kindergarten. Established in 1999 with a five star rating on greatschools.org and yelp.com, it’s an exclusive, private, structured, quality, academic and nurturing childcare program that is designed and structured identical to a center-based program.
