Tiny Tidbits Preschool

In January I decided to open up a private preschool. I was looking for a preschool to enroll Bri in in the area and I wasn't very happy with my options. There isn't very many to choose from and they are either really expensive, really hard to get into, or they didn't teach what I thought was important. I had a small preschool in Bullfrog which the school district had hired me to teach and I still had all my supplies. I had been thinking about it for a while and finally decided to ask around and see if anyone was interested. To my surprise there were ALOT of people interested. I originally thought I would be happy with five kids, but it has grown to eleven kids, AND I have a waiting list!! I am now even considering opening another session. It has been a lot of fun, and I really enjoy it. Bri is actually my most difficult challenge lately because the coolness of having so many friends over has worn out now that she has realized that it is not just play time and she actually has to work, but I am praying she will get over it.
Each week we focus on a letter from the alphabet. In this pic, the "letter of the week" was H so we had a hat day. The kids had a ton of fun playing silly hat games.
