What We Are Learning: April
During the month of April, we will be learning about seeds, plants, flowers, springtime and the life cycle of the chicken, duck, ladybug, butterfly and frog. We have a lot of exciting things planned for the children this month!
The children will be observing the Painted Lady Butterfly Metamorphosis. We will be watching through the fine netting of this pop-up butterfly abode as caterpillars shed their skins and form chrysalises, then emerges as beautiful butterflies. We will watch, study and share the wonders of the butterfly.
We will watch eggs hatch into chicks! Mrs. Sharon picked up the eggs from Benner Farm on Monday, March 25th. We will watch eggs hatch into ducklings as well! Eggs are from Eastport Duck Farm. The children will start turning the eggs two times each day. The chicks and ducklings should hatch around April 15th. The chicks and ducklings will go back to the farm for spring break.
For the Kindergarten Parents: At home encourage them to become more self-sufficient. Instead of telling them to “remember your backpack” before you leave the house ask them, “Do you have everything you need for school?” On Show and Tell Day, remind them of the day and remind them of the curriculum. Give them plenty of time to look for something to take with them. This would be a good time to check your child’s clothing bin in the bathroom. They probably have outgrown the clothes in there now and will also need some spring time weather clothes!
Please remember you are always encouraged to ask us any questions you may have about your child. This month’s school newsletter* has more information.

Montessori Children—Young Minds of the Future
The mission of Montessori Children is to develop a well rounded student who is eager to learn, is self-confident, and is a contributing member of society who has the zest and skills for lifelong learning. This will be accomplished in a nurturing prepared environment utilizing a comprehensive preschool level curriculum. Montessori classes place children in multi-age groups, forming communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones.
Our Montessori teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children’s natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this “prepared environment” to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
