February 15th 11am-2pm
Once again Temple Shalom Preschool is hosting its annual Health-Safety Day/Open House on Sunday, February 15th from 11am to 2pm. This is a very special activity-packed day-long program educating our young citizens about health and safety within our community. Various community helpers come to present awareness about their individual departments. The children enjoy seeing fire trucks up close and personal. They are able to climb on board and view fire fighter’s gear and equipment. EMT shows up in their ambulances for the children to have a clear view of what is inside its vehicles, and the police department brings their mascot, McGruff the Crime Dog, teaching the children about combating crime in the area. Water safety, a major concern for parents in the area, is reinforced. Domestic animal services is another presenter along with Smokey the Bear from the Department of Forestry. Not to mention the rock climbing wall and the bounce house brings a lot of fun and excitement to the children as well as riding the ponies around our campus. Health-Safety Day is an event open to the general public and is a welcome and well-received program for the community each year.
At Temple Shalom Preschool, we follow good nutritional eating habits and children are taught about appropriate portion size, nutritional value of certain foods, and the importance of including fruits and vegetables with every meal. This year, we are adding this important aspect to our Safety day and making it an even better event by introducing Health education, healthy foods, a chance to see and taste our own TSP garden fruits and vegetables and even participate in a fitness class.
Parents will also have a chance to tour our beautiful Preschool and meet our teachers. Children will have fun listening to a story in our famous Storyland Children’s Library, singing with our music teacher, checking out our brand new and futuristic Technology Lab, doing experiments in our Professor Einstein’s Laboratorium, having their face painted, jumping in the Bounce House, riding on a pony or climbing on the rock wall!
