Today Xander had his first day of “My First School” at the St. Louis Magic House. For those of you who don’t live in the area, it isn’t magician school but rather a nine-week, fun and creative preschool program for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 year-olds at the Magic House Children’s Museum. In the hour-long class, two teachers introduce the children to circle time, themed activities, free play, and songs/dances. In the beginning, the parents attend the class with the kids but by the end of the 9 weeks, the children attend parent-free. Xander appeared to really enjoy all the toys and activities in his classroom– he even liked sitting (on my lap) for circle time. He mostly played in the kitchen/make believe area but he did venture out to paint a beautiful abstract piece in the painting area. Here are a few pictures from his morning!
