Caterpillars, Artwork, May Faire and More!

Every day there is so much creative play at our little east Asheville preschool. This spring, activities have had us preparing for the recent Waldorf May Faire celebration that we participated in at Azalea Mountain School, getting our spring garden in the ground and honoring all the wonderful creatures of spring (including our classroom’s living caterpillar friends).

Besides all the painting and drawing and recycled sculpture creations, the children have also made and flown their own kites and made artistic stepping stones for Mother’s Day gifts (shhhh! that’s still a secret!).

On May 23, our school will have a booth selling healthy treats at the Oakley Farmers Market’s Spring Fling event. If you’d like to meet some of our families and enjoy live music, baby goats, a puppet show and children’s gardening activities at one of our community’s most kid-friendly farmers markets, stop by between 3:30 and 6:30 pm at the market located behind Oakley United Methodist Church at 607 Fairview Road in Asheville. http://www.oakleyfarmersmarket.com.

We still have slots open for fall 2013, so please let us know if you’re interested!

Preschool Open House

Hello all Mamas, Papas, and little children!

We wanted to let you know that our Spring Open House at Grow With Me (Preschool Classroom) will be occuring on Monday, April 12th from 9:30AM until 11:30AM. Everyone is invited to stop by and get a feel for what Grow With Me has to offer!

The classroom will be open for free play and will also have some special play centers set up to give the little ones a taste of what part of our day is like. Our teacher, Sarah Justice, will also be on hand along with some of our currently enrolled families to assist you with any questions you have about our program (there will also be a Kindergarten representative on hand to show you the K classroom and answer any questions)!

¬†For those of you who don’t know about our program, Grow With Me is waldorf-inspired learning cooperative located in East Asheville. We operate on a Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday schedule from 9am-12:30pm and require that parents are scheduled to work in the classroom 2 days per month minimum. While at school, the children flow in and out of the daily rhythms which may include free play, circle time, centers, baking, bread making, snack, outdoor play/exploration, creative movement, music, story times, and lunch.

Grow With Me Pre-K has a ratio of 1:4 (one teacher, 2 parents) and caps it’s enrollment at 12 students per classroom. If we sound like a good fit for your family or you have additional questions or curiousities, stop by during the Open House or email (we are always open to having prospective families schedule visits during our regular school days)! We would love to meet you and get you acquainted with OUR family at GWM!
