Greetings

Love is the air at Preschool Plus. The children will celebrate Valentine’s Day, friends, and God’s love. Some of our thematic units include Presidents’ Day, dental health, pets, and shapes.

Center-wide Activities

Our first center-wide activity will be a visit from a local musician. Aina Olonade joined the staff of SJUMC as Organist/Pianist in 2018. He earned a master’s degree in Piano Performance from the University of Texas-El Paso, and a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance at the University of Central Missouri. Prior to that, he studied organ and church music in his native Nigeria. Aina will do a short presentation for our students on Tuesday, February 12, at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. The children will listen and hear many different organ sounds and then have some sing-along time. 

Our second center-wide activity will be on Friday, February 15, at 10:00 a.m. in the Son Shine Café.  A team from Route 66 Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics will be on site sharing with the children the importance of taking good care of their teeth.
