Chopped Junior

Happy Monday Academy of Westhaven families!  We are excited to start another Monday with all of our Fabulous littles! We are welcoming so many new friends to our school this week, so be sure to give them a friendly hello if you see them around. Before we dive into this weeks fun, I wanted to catch you all up on the amazing time we had last week during our Chopped Junior theme. This is one if the Littles favorite weeks out of the summer simply because it is so hands on. We started the week with vegetable sensory bins! The littles loved exploring all of their favorite vegetables and getting to compare sizes. Next we all got to decorate our very own cupcake! The littles were set up with their own piping bag of icing and sprinkles, and the complete JOY on their faces said it all. We also got to enjoy pancake painting, and all made our very own chef hats to complete the week. I have to say the hands down favorite we saved for Friday, Ice Cream in a Bag! The littles had a countdown for it all week and couldn’t wait to enjoy their delicious snack. It’s so fun seeing their imaginations come to life, and who knows maybe we have our very own future chef’s one day! :)

Happy Monday Academy of Westhaven Families! I hope that you all had another amazing weekend. We are so excited to start another week with our incredible littles! This weeks theme is Chopped Junior! This is always one of our favorite themes out of Summer of Imagination. The littles love getting that hands on feel of cooking and creating fun snacks. 

With all of the excitement that this week holds ahead of us, the littles still haven’t stopped talking about our special guest from last week..Ms. Jill the ventriloquist! She came in and immediately captured the littles attention and held it for the entire show! She taught an Ocean of Possibilities show and all about ocean life. The littles watched in amazement as each ocean character came to life! Check out the fun below!

Happy Monday Academy of Westhaven Families! I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend. We had a busy but incredible week over here at AOW! Last week was Mad Scientist and the littles had a blast. 

Our week started with The Science Guys stopping by for a visit, and got all of our little scientist involved in the fun. We kept the fun going through the week as we had a Family Robot Building contest, and the winner will receive a membership to the Nashville Adventure Science Center to help keep their love of science going all year round! We wrapped up the week with Volcanic Eruptions, Water Day and yummy treat, Solar S’mores! Check out the fun below!

It was such a great week, what are some fun science activities you have enjoyed with your little?

Academy of Westhaven Class of 2022
Academy of Westhaven Class of 2022 Graduation

Happy Monday Academy of Westhaven Families! We just wrapped up another incredible week with all of our littles. We were busy with Ooey Gooey week, which is always filled with messy fun. The best part of last week was our Pre-K Graduation and Prom! Our theme this year was ✌🏼Peace Out Pre-K!✌🏼 We went all out with tie dye and had the grooviest time celebrating our graduates. They each received a fun case of school supplies for their upcoming year in Kindergarten. We were so impressed by some of our littles who were so brave to independently read a book during the ceremony, shed a few tears during our end of the year slide show, and got to honor our Forever Families! The real fun started once the DJ took over and got the party started. The littles (and parents) were pulling out their best dance moves and fun was had by all! 

We want to give a special shout-out to our Graduating Class of 2022! We have love having the honor of watching you grow into the amazing Little Ladies and Gentlemen that you are! We cannot wait to see and hear about all of the amazing things that you accomplish as you take on the world!

We started out our week with Galaxy Sensory Bins! This was a huge hit and the littles had a blast exploring through the Galaxy. We filled each sensory bin with black beans and glow in the dark stars, comets, planets and aliens. The littles spent so much time
just creating imaginative play! We talked about the different planets, and all of the stars and constellations! It was a fan favorite that turned out to be so fun. Check out some of the fun below!

Happy Tuesday Academy of Westhaven families! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday weekend with all of your families. We are thrilled to start another fantastic week with all of our littles. This summer has been so full of fun and we’ve already made lasting memories! 

Last week we enjoyed Wild Things week! The week was filled with dress up days, a fun zoo trail mix, animal tales came for a visit and we had our very first Animal Rescue! We always have a great time when Animal Tales comes by to help educate us on all of the animals and their habitats. The fan favorite was Animal Rescue. Everyone donated a gently used staffed animal and we then used the stuffed animals for all of our littles to adopt! They were each able to take their animal to the veterinarian station, made their new animal a name, adoption certificate, a brand new collar that they got to design. Every animal was sent home in a pet carrier and were off to their new homes!  The littles had a blast and were smiling and full of giggles the entire time. Check out some of the fun below! :)
