There Is No Better Place for Your Child than The Academy

At The Academy, we never let a holiday go by without taking advantage of all the learning opportunities it provides. Most holidays have their own colors, shapes, stories, and traditions – all rich learning experiences for preschool children. During the month of March, we pulled out all the stops when celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

Mt Juliet daycare preschools daycares mount juliet tennessee tnAll of our age groups really got into the “wearing of the green” – from our infants to our oldest children. (Did you know that wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns, who like to pinch anyone they can see?) The children also loved wearing Irish hats as shown in the photo. Leprechaun beards were also the rage.

Hands-on activities for St. Patrick’s Day included shamrock art, four-leaf clover searches, a pot-of-gold coin guessing game, and more. And mysteriously, green-colored milk and green-colored yogurt turned up at lunch time.

At one of our locations, the children had fun designing and building a leprechaun trap. This is a perfect example of our educational philosophy. Children learn best when actively engaged in unique activities, games, and projects designed to enhance educational experiences. This activity employed many motor skills, as well as developmental skills, including imagination, creativity, communication, and cooperation. It also perfectly illustrates that education is great fun. We are looking forward to this kind of fun at our new Mt Juliet daycare center opening soon!

Setting Health Goals

Traditionally, the new year is a time for setting goals. During January and February, the Academy preschools in Nashville, TN are setting some goals that focus on being healthy.

Over the course of these two months, we will be discussing and doing various activities that emphasize:

  • being fit through movement and exercise
  • healthy eating
  • achieving good dental health through dental hygiene

Being a Fitness Fanatic

We are kicking off our special focus on health with a program we call “Fitness Fanatics.” Academy directors and teachers are featuring classic calisthenics (such as jumping jacks). Additionally, they are teaching and using new movement activities such as yoga, hula hooping, and obstacle courses.

Tracking Family Movements

At the Academy, we always include our families in our special programs. So one of the family activities for Fitness Fanatics is for parents to track the time they spend at home with their kids doing “movement.” Movement can include walking, playing a sport, exercising, etc.

Parents report their hours weekly to us, and we keep a log of the hours reported for all the children. At the end of the program, if the school reaches it preset goal, there will be a big celebration.

In addition to a school-wide goal, some of the teachers have set personal fitness goals too (as Ms. Kristen at our Cool Springs location has done – see photo above). We invite our parents to do the same!
