The LCFCC Preschool Parent Board is proud to offer many fun and educational enrichment programs for our students. All the Parent Board’s fundraising efforts throughout the year allow the Board to fund all these amazing programs that make our Preschool so special.
Due to COVID-19 Regulations, we are not able to offer these Enrichment Programs at this time. Please stay tuned for future changes!
Kimberly Bradstreet, the teacher and Director of Dance and Jingle, introduces the children to music and movement weekly – promoting cognitive development, social awareness, and emotional growth. The children are guided through an array of musical experiences: exploring instruments, marching and dancing to different beats, and singing songs. Musical performances for the parents take place in the Winter and Spring.
The children actively participate in planting, caring for, and in many cases sampling fruits and vegetables from the garden in the play yard.
Outside experts such as the Wildlife Learning Center, The Reptile Family, and The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium visit the Preschool during the year. The children enjoy learning about the animals, seeing how they move, and even touching or holding many of them! These hands-on experiences are a highlight of the year!
Fall is always an exciting time at the preschool! LCFCC has an annual pumpkin delivery, where students can choose and decorate pumpkins of their own! Teachers provide hands on learning about pumpkins, including sensory exploration, weighing, measuring, science, and art!
A very memorable week in the Spring is Safety Week! The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department visits in a squad car to teach basic safety and answer questions. Similarly, La Cañada Fire Department Station 82 visits to discuss fire safety and show off various features of their engines and trucks.
