We had a full week of activities last week at Edgewater Preschool in Long Beach! We started off with our field trip to Tanaka Farm where we picked veggies and a pumpkin to take with us. We had to carry the pumpkin out all by ourselves without any help from an adult! Well, we did it! We took our pumpkins back to school and kept them there until Friday to decorate at our Fall Festival. During the week we cut vegetables to make Veggie soup for the Fall Festival. We had many activities including, face painting, bracelet making, story time, pumpkin decorating and soup eating! We hope you enjoy the photos from our busy week.  A few more photos on our Facebook page.

Random pictures from week 2 of the new year. Edgewater Preschool in Long Beach is a year round school but September is the official start and when most of the classroom move ups are all complete, the toddlers have moved up to the preschool side and quite a few new toddlers have started.    As you will see around the site, Edgewater is much more than a day care center!

Edgewater Preschool  in Long Beach had a fun week celebrating NAEYC’s Week of the Young Child, from toddlers to Pre-K, they had a great time!

From NAEYC’s website:

What is the Week of the Young Child?

The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 80,000 members and a network of over 300 local, state, and regional Affiliates.

The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child™ in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to plan how we—as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation—will better meet the needs of all young children and their families.

We kicked off The Week of the Young Child with a fun parade around our Long Beach! We made our own instruments in our preschool and toddler classrooms and marched around on the grass area! We also released our butterflies from our classroom. One of them let us hold it.

We went on a field trip to Tanaka Farms and it was a beautiful day!  We took a tractor ride through the fields and tasted farm fresh vegetables picked right out of the ground!  We tasted carrots, onions, cilantro, celery, bok choy and of course all the strawberries we could eat!  We were able to see other vegetables and fruit trees as well. We saw lettuce, beans, carrots avocado trees, peach trees, apple trees, and banana trees (did you know that the bananas take up to 2 years to ripen because of our mild California climate?).  As we roamed through the strawberry fields we learned how to pick the perfect strawberry! We sampled as many as we could eat!  We had a great educational and nutritional field trip to the farm.

Our Spring Party was filled with so much fun! We made Angel Food cake, cut up Strawberries and then ate Strawberry Shortcakes for afternoon snack. After enjoying our snack we went outside and decorated little flower pots with stickers and markers. We added soil to our pots and planted a variety of seeds inside of them. Our day was filled with fun activities. We enjoyed the beautiful Spring day!
