Nursery School Field Trip

Nursery students have been fascinated with transportation. What a better way to learn about it then taking a field trip by train to the Bryn Mawr Fire Company and the Ludington Library. They walked over to the Haverford train station accompanied by some parents and got aboard the train to the Bryn Mawr station. First stop was Ludington Library for storytime then the Fire Station for a lesson on safety and a tour and exploration of the fire trucks. A special treat was shooting the fire hose.

The Bunnies are here!

Momma rabbit Mindy and her six kits are here! The babies were born nine days ago and can be observed in their kindling box in Nursery School. In a few weeks, each Heritage House classroom will take care of two bunnies. Heritage House students have been learning about baby animals as well as animals that borough and hibernate. This will give them an up close and personal look at babies, how they live, and how they should be cared for. Stop by Nursery School before noon or after 3:00 pm to visit.

Learning About Turkey Vultures

Preschool has been curious about turkey vultures since they live on our campus and can be observed right in our own backyard. Some interesting facts learned is that they mate for life, have a keen sense of smell for sniffing out fresh carcasses, and soar rather than flap their wings. They were fascinated by learning that they vomit their food for self-defense. Students made cardboard cut-out turkey vultures and took them outside to simulate being a turkey vulture. They stretched their arms out wide to sour above the turf field looking for fresh carrion (stuffed animals) and used their sense of smell to find the animals.
