Hello to all Free To Be Preschool Families-

We are going to start putting together a place where you all can see things that are happening on a daily basis. We will be posting items such as what we did during the day in each of our sessions. We will also post updates to schedules and important information you need to know.

This week we learned about the letter E, number 1, a Square and the color Blue. Ask your child what animal they made this year that starts with the letter E and where we put up a blue square in the classroom.

Can't wait for you all to see all the fun we have every day.
