Mr. Jake the Music Man!

We had an amazing music lesson this week with Mr. Jake the Music Man. He brought his special puppet, which the kiddos loved. He also brought his guitar & cello! We sang songs about preschool, letters & numbers too! There was lots of dancing and sweet giggles echoing through the school. Thanks Mr. Jake the Music Man for the fun visit!

Book Fair!

This week we are focusing on Reading! Reading is so important because it develops the mind. The mind is a BIG muscle... that constantly needs exercise. Reading a book with your child every day helps them learn new vocabulary daily! And Teaching young children to read helps them develop their language skills with others as well. It also helps them learn to listen! And who doesn't love that? So...what better way to show how much fun reading can be... than with our annual Book Fair! Check out our awesome Scholastic Book Fair this week!

Pre-K Graduation 2019

The Academy of Westhaven had our Pre-K Graduation last night. It is so hard to accept the fact that all of the children we have loved, cared, played with and taught for the past 5 years are leaving us to explore a whole new world in... KINDERGARTEN! Thank you to all of the parents and teachers for all your hard work in helping these superstars get Kindergarten ready! 
Congratulations AoW Pre-K Class of 2019!!!

Rapunzel & Captain America Visit

Our imaginations were soaring throughout The Academy of Westhaven today, thanks to our special guests Princess Rapunzel and Captain America. They both answered lots of questions, read books, danced to songs, showed off their awesome magic tricks and even made balloon animals for the older children to take home! We had so much fun with them this morning and can't wait for their next visit!

Project USA!

We have been celebrating America's birthday all week over at AoW! We kicked off the week with fun facts about the 4th of July and why we celebrate. Did you know America turns 243 this year?! We also had a sweet "Take Home Tuesday" this week... Each child was given a toy soldier to take home so they could place the soldier somewhere that will remind them to think of all the brave Men and Women serving our country. Then, today we showed off our patriotism by wearing red, white and blue! We hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July and Happy Birthday America!
