September News!




We are excited to be kicking off another school year full of new learning opportunities – there is so much to look forward to! If you’re new here, our program strikes a balance between guided facilitation and constructive learning, encouraging children to explore new interests and develop new skills every day.

In addition to the thematic lessons that make up a part of our BRAVO Curriculum, we stay active and engaged with additional activities including Tae Kwon Do, STEAM Labs, Doodle Fitness and Music Rocks! – all of which resume this month.

Yoga, a part of Doodle Fitness, helps children of all ages grow flexible and strong in body and mind and is a perfect complement to busy days. We will be making yoga a part of our Doodle Day and encourage you to give it a try at home using our yoga guide.

REMINDER! All centers will be closed on Monday, September 2 for Labor Day!

3 Steps to Be the Calm Through Back to School Emotions

Back to school season is filled with BIG emotions. In early childhood education, these feelings are often more obvious (and explosive) based on their still-developing ability to recognize, cope, and manage emotions. So what can we do to help children through the transition?

“We recently moved across the state and knowing Miss Andrea is taking care of my daughter every day has given me such peace of mind. She always has such attentive feedback for each child and truly cares for her class. My daughter is excited each day to see her and has developed many more words since attending her class!
