Director’s Message

Well, here we go! The frantic time of year, Halloween to New Years. Why do we let ourselves get so involved in every project and event that comes our way? Is it because we want everything for our children to be “perfect”? Let me tell you, children do not expect perfection. In fact they don’t even know about perfec- tion.
During this holiday season work on teaching your chil- dren about being thankful. Make a “Thankful” list and add to it each evening at din- ner. See how long your list will be by Thanksgiving day.

Help your family focus on the true meaning of CHRISTmas. Share the love of Christ with your community. Donate food to a local food bank. Let your child select appropriate items for the Samaritan’s. Purse Shoebox ministry. The boxes are distributed around the world to children who often have nothing. Be sure to read the flyer from preschool describing the “how to” for filling a box. Due at school by Nov. 21. Our children are so blessed, let them learn about helping others.

Take a trip down to Balboa Park to see the Nativity Scene set up near the Organ Pavil- ion. My adult children still recall this special event! Walk around your neighborhood to see the beautiful lights. Chil- dren will remember visiting special places with their family long after their gifts are opened and shoved to the back of their closet!

Speaking of gifts—friends of mine don’t wrap the gifts from Santa. After all when you “see” Santa’s sleigh the toys are spilling over the top and none of them are wrapped! What a savings of time and money!!!

Our staff wishes for all our preschool families to have a beautiful Thanksgiving and a Blessed and Peaceful Christ- mas season.

Happy New Year, too!

Love from,
