Classroom Updates

Ashcreek Playschool has once again been busy over the summer expanding and moving. This year we have grown into two classes and moved back in to our original classroom, which will now hold our Two’s and Young Three’s Class. We also acquired new furniture for our Mixed Age Classroom and added some beautiful wall murals.

We still have space for new families to join us this year! Contact ashcreekplayschool@gmail.com to schedule a tour.

First annual Ashcreek Jog A Thon!

On October 11th our students will be participating in a Jog A Thon to raise money for our preschool.

Classroom Upgrade!

Ashcreek has moved into a bigger classroom!

20170904_153545

With less than a week before school starts a larger space in our building became available and we were able to start moving in and setting up in our new classroom! It was been a busy week for our parent volunteers and especially Teacher Erika to get everything moved and set up in time for the first day of school.

We went from 350 square feet to over 600 square feet of space. Last year our room was functional but sometimes felt crowded, especially on days when we were at capacity with 12 kids and 3 adults. Now we will have a room almost 300 square feet larger than last year and are looking forward to the extra space!
