We marked the birth of the new Cabbagetown campus as well as the 7th birthday of the Grant Park lcoation with the annual Grant Park Cooperative Preschool Birthday Party this Saturday. The party was held this year at the Cabbagetown campus playground where the C-town kids have spent the last couple of days getting to know their new home away from home. There was a wonderful Nigerian drummer ‘Bisi’ who entranced all the kids, collage-making, lots of FOOD, and good company. Click here to see a collection of photos from the event.
Sammy had his first day of pre-school this week and he loved it. It’s a small class of 10-12 kids, 2 teachers and a parent-helper. To make for a smooth transition this week, parents have been invited to participate for the first hour or so. It didn’t take long for Sam to get in the swing of things. It was so cute to watch these toddlers sit at their little table and eat a snack. Sam didn’t understand that you take more from the big tray and not your neighbor’s plate, but we’ll work on that. Overall, I know he’ll love it and so does Mom!
The Kangaroo and Zebra Grant Park playgroups got together on Saturday for a late afternoon picnic in the park near the pool. Amy and I were not able to join until quite late, but as you can see everyone had a blast! More photos here.
Grant Park Cooperative Preschool parents Jack and Kim Sobel graciously offered to donate 15% of the night’s proceeds from their newest restaurant, the Cajun-inspired Redfish, toward the start up costs for the new Cabbagetown campus. Above, our friend Laura tries to entertain her daughter Shoshanna AND eat dinner at the same time. Always a difficult task, alas. Amy, Sam and I headed over for a lovely meal (mmmm, shrimp and grits!) amid many rowdy children. A good time was had by all! More photos are here.
