It has been a magical year at the Learning Garden Preschool.  During the Fall and Winter we celebrated all kinds of holidays.  As we do each year, we’ve enjoyed having our families come into the preschool and share their favorite holiday traditions with us. The winter months have bustled with activity.  Our “literacy” catepillar is beginning to stretch around our classroom, reminding us of the wonderful books we have read together in class, (and those which have been read at home.)

As we prepare for our annual Thanksgiving celebration, it’s time to reflect and be thankful for all we have accomplished this year. Just this time last year, as we prepared to move into our beautiful school, our garden was bare. Since that time we have grown broccoli, sweet peas, lettuce, sunflowers, peppers, watermelon, carrots, radishes, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, grapes, strawberries, oranges, tangerines, kumquats, limes, grapefruit, pomegranate, lemons, parsley, sage, lemon balm, mint, (chocolate mint yum), oregano, thyme, rosemary, lavender ,...
