FROM THE DIRECTOR
It is hard to believe this is the last newsletter of the school year. The next few weeks at preschool we will be busy getting some of our students ready to leave us for kindergarten and spending quality time with each of them. It is always bittersweet to see the children leave for the summer, as we have spent the year watching them grow and learn new things. During staff meeting we talked about the fact that they seldom remember us but we will always remember them, their little hugs and the things they do and say to make us laugh. If it is time for your child to leave Compass Christian Preschool, please know that we are always here for you if you ever need us.
Summer months can be challenging for some families. It is best to keep a routine if possible as children need to know what their days will be like. Take them to the park, visit a museum, go to the library and most of all simply cherish this time together. When you are around swimming pools please be alert, it seems there is always a news story about a child drowning. My heart stops when I hear those stories and I just begin to pray for the family and hope that it is not one of our babies. Many drownings happen when there are lots of adults around as you have a false sense of security. If you child does not know how to swim please invest in swim lessons, there are multiple options in our area. Both Grapevine and Hurst have wonderful swim lesson programs for your children.
Enjoy your summer and be safe, we will see you at Summer Camp or in the fall.

I have had the joy to watch your children grow with music this year and the fun continues as we buzz around and learn about God’s creations. The Ones, Twos and Threes will have dancing feet as they sing about insects this month. The Fours are working hard preparing for their spring program, “Wild about His Love” on May 15th at 6:30 pm and TK has a special surprise for the parents during Open House. I am so excited to share their talents with all of you. Even though school is ending, the beat goes on. Have you ever wondered about the importance of music to a child’s development? Or what are the benefits of listening to different kinds of music? Did you realize when you were in the car with your child singing at the top of your lungs while your little one sways back and forth and clapping their hands with excitement that you were teaching your child about language, motor, cognitive and social skills? This summer try to include as much music as you can in your schedule. We are blessed to live in an area that provides so many musical opportunities for families. Singing, listening to music, or banging on an instrument stimulates a child’s brain, helps to increase motor skills and self-awareness and also helps improve their attention span. So the next time you are looking for something fun to do with your child, just turn on some music and dance or make your own music and sing!
