My First Look: a look at December 2016 for your preschool kids
We just love December! The sights, the sounds, the smells (our favorite)—all these things fill the days as we count down to the MOST important day of December, the day we celebrate Jesus.
That’s the plan for our preschoolers this month. We’re going to count down to Christmas with them as they learn the different parts of the Christmas story. First, they will hear how the angel came to tell Mary that she was going to have a special baby. The next week, Mary and Joseph will travel to Bethlehem, and a special baby is born! During week three, the children will pretend they are shepherds as they hear how the angels came to tell the shepherds in the field that Baby Jesus had been born.
Then, it’s Christmas Day!!! That’s right, Christmas Day is a Sunday this year. We will review the Christmas story and have a birthday party for Jesus. It’s going to be so much fun!
It is important to note that December 17/18 will conclude our preschool programming for the year, as we will be taking the Christmas and New Years weekends off to spend time with our families. It has been our great honor to serve you and your children this year, and we look forward to an exciting and life-changing 2017! Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder as you give your preschoolers a "first look" at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
