Extra Activities

We have many activities at our preschool that support our children and encourage relationship building among our families:

* Movie Nights * Back To School Night * Open House * Winter Holiday Program * Field Trips * Field Day * Splash Day  * Community Service Day * End of Year Program * Thanksgiving Feast and Program * Life Care Visits *


Movie Nights – Twice a month, the preschool provides an opportunity for the children to stay after school with their friends to watch a movie. Kids can wear their PJ’s to school on movie night, bring a special blanket or “lovie” to snuggle with while watching the movie, and are served popcorn and lemonade. The times are from 3-5pm and the cost is $10 per child. Due to licensing regulations, only TLC Preschool registered children can attend.


Back to School Meeting – The first week of school families are invited to come to the preschool one afternoon or evening to learn all about the preschool and staff.  Parents are encouraged to attend to meet other parents and get all of your questions answered.


Open House – The Friday before school starts, the Preschool hosts an Open House. This time is set aside to meet the teachers and welcomes all children and their families. In the past we’ve sponsored book fairs, had face painting for the children, and provided a special snack. Families are also asked to sign up to help “spruce up” the playground for the children’s first day of school. This is a fun time and everyone is invited to come!


Winter Holiday Program – Before the preschool closes for winter break, the teachers and staff organize a very special evening for our families. The children sing songs in a very festive environment for their parents, families and friends. Refreshments are always served and this is a great way to welcome the holiday season.


Field Trips – The Preschool schedules special events’ visitors at least 3 times a year. If public school buses are available, the children also go on field trips such as The Petite Orchestra, the Arvada Center, and Bergen Park Fire Department.


Field Day – When the weather is nice in April or May, the preschool children participate in Field Day events. It’s great fun to watch the children run relays and play games. Field Day ends with a picnic lunch for everyone.


Splash Days – Hot days in August and May are great fun around here. The teachers set out pools and water toys for the children and we have a big all-school Splash Day. It’s a great way to enjoy those hot days.  If the weather is snowy or cold, which has been the case some years, we still plan a fun indoors splash day.  Children wear their bathing suits to school, play in the pools without water, and we provide a picnic lunch.


Community Service Day -We believe in teaching young children that participating in community service  is very important to build community relationships, and show respect to our neighbors.  In the past, we have mailed boxes to soldiers who served in Afghanistan, we’ve cleaned around the preschool property, we’ve visited the fire department and cleaned up around their property, we’ve gone to the Life Care Center and entertained the residents.  We even made blankets with the children’s hand-prints sewn on the blankets for cancer patients receiving treatment at the University of Colorado Hospital.


End of the Year Program – It always makes us sad to see the year come to an end – however, we make it very special for the children. We hold a “Family Night” event with singing, and the graduates receive their graduation certificates and refreshments are served.


Thanksgiving Feast and Program – All the children celebrate Thanksgiving together. We have an all school meal together and the children perform for parents and friends following the feast. It’s a great way to begin the Thanksgiving season.


Life Care Center Visits – Once a month the Preschool visits the Life Care Center residents. The children sing songs, deliver arts and crafts, make valentines, Hanukkah or Christmas cards, and sometimes we read books and act out nursery rhymes. We love bringing smiles to the residents, who so look forward to our visits.
