Special activities take place throughout the year to add to our student's enjoyment. These special days provide many opportunities for learning and are an exciting enhancement to our curriculum. Children can learn more about the world around them when they can experience a variety of activities. Social skills are strengthened by meeting new people and traditions are enriched by sharing these moments with their peers and teachers. Be sure to watch the calendar and check the monthly newsletter for details.

June is a month filled with events and growth! Each June, we celebrate our Preschool Completion Ceremony; one of many milestones that we share with our families. There is so much pride around this year’s group of students going off to Kindergarten in the fall. As this exciting time approaches we do a lot of reflecting on the time we’ve had together and the memories we’ve created. It is an honor to watch your children as they evolve and prepare for the next step in their “Journey of Life.”
Fire Safety Day
Precious Memories schedules an annual visit from the Old Mystic Fire Department. What a great time for everyone! The children learn about fire safety and how to Stop, Drop & Roll. They also have the opportunity to check out the fireman in all their gear, tour the truck and most importantly... spray the hoses!
Birthday Parties at Precious Memories
Birthdays are special at Precious Memories and each child’s birthday is acknowledged. The child's name is posted on a birthday award on the door of the classroom. Recognition is given at "circle time". A "birthday bag" is available for classroom teachers to use. The bag includes celebratory activities, festive music and birthday costumes for the children to enjoy. We also offer complete pizza parties as well! After several comments by our families, stating that it is often difficult to coordinate birthday parties with other parents, due to everyone’s busy and hectic schedules, we have decided to offer this option here at the center. We offer pizza, cupcakes, ice cream, Gogurts, veggie & fruit platters, various party themes (for room decorating) to choose from, games, music and special activities. Items can be ordered ala carte or as a complete package.
