ST. PATRICKS DAY!

Good Morning Nookers and Happy St. Patrick's Day! 



This next month we will be celebrating 10 years at The Little Nook, so exciting! Last week we made the tough decision to close as long as we need to, in order to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. Never in these 10 years, could we have ever predicted something like this. We will do the best we job we can to give you some resources at home. Be gentle with yourselves and each other! We are missing all of our little friends and the loving energy and eagerness that they bring into our lives.

We will be posting learning activities and fun ideas HERE, on our website, and they will be linked on Facebook, so please follow us if you do not. In addition to what you see here, this is a fantastic time for your little ones to learn some things that they might not learn in school, some life skills. See the bottom of this post for some ideas. Also, we will be adding printables under the "Forms" tab.

This week at The Little Nook:
Letter W
Shape CLOVER
Theme: St Patricks Week

-ART and PLAY-

Pepper Printing (cookie cutters work too)



Leprechaun Hands!


Scavenger Hunt




-EARLY READING SKILLS AND NUMBER SENSE-






If your child isn't ready to draw coins, number identification may be more appropriate, or counting together!




COUNTING COINS
( if your leprechauns didn't leave a pot of gold for you, pennies will work )






Counting and Graphing LUCKY CHARMS! 
( For younger learners, we let them organize the charms into piles )



 -AGE APPROPRIATE LIFE SKILLS-

Dear Little Nook families, 

The unpredictability of the COVID-19 outbreak has brought us to an unfortunate moment in time for our planet, our nation, our community and our families. As Governor Kemp addressed us this afternoon, he asked that all schools seriously consider closing for two weeks.

        We all have levels of some shock, powerlessness and frustration, hopefully we are finding some gratitude. The culprit here is the virus, not people. We are all doing the best we can under the circumstances in uncharted territory. If we keep the forefront of the goal in mind, which is to interrupt the transmission of this virus, we will all be better for it. 

We feel that it is the right decision for our school to take the advice of the governor and close The Little Nook for the recommended two weeks. We realize that this is not going to be everyone’s favorite decision, but it may be an extremely important one. As of right now, we plan to get back to school as usual on March 30th. Stay tuned!

Let’s all lock arms and get through this together one day at a time!

Thank you, The Little Nook
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

We have decided to close Thursday, March 12th and Friday, March 13th. We will continue to make the best decisions that we can, with the information that we have to work with. Right now, we feel that safety comes first and we would always rather err on the side of overly cautious. Please be patient with us while we navigate this together. Thank you so much for partnering with us and trusting us with your most precious children. 




We hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break this past week. In light of recent developments of COVID-19, please read the following carefully. 

During the week of Spring Break we took the opportunity to clean and disinfect The Little Nook really well. We are watching public health advisories closely and we are in touch with other schools and health care providers to make sure we are fully informed and communicating constantly. Please note that if we need to close to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in line with CDC advisories, we will let you know via the Remind App, Facebook, and Instagram. 

While it seems to be most crucial for elderly and immunocompromised individuals, children can often be the transmitters of viruses while not actually having severe symptoms. We have children and family members of students who are immunocompromised and therefore, we are asking our Nook community to please be incredibly responsible and cautious. 

1. If your child has had any of the following symptoms: fever (without the use of fever-reducing meds), cough, sneezing, scratchy throat, or shortness of breath, please keep your child at home and see your pediatrician for clearance before returning to school. Please wait the full self-quarantine period of 14 days before returning if there is any possibility of COVID-19. We will be monitoring students and staff closely for COVID-19 symptoms and we will act accordingly, should any of our little Nookers appear to be at risk! Please be safe so we aren’t sorry later. 

2. In keeping with CDC guidelines for schools, if your child or any family member that your child has come in contact with, has traveled to a level three country, currently China, Italy, South Korea, or Iran, please self-quarantine for 14 days. 

3. If you are concerned about any health conditions or want to keep your child home for any reason other than the above, even if for preventative measures, please feel free to do so. We support your family’s decision. 

4. We will be washing hands frequently, and trying our best to keep hands from our noses and mouths. Please wash everything frequently that comes to and from school, such as: coats, bags, and snack containers. This is a good time to take shoes off at the door. If you have been on airplanes for travel, wash any coats or bags that were on the airplane with you before bringing them to school.

Our biggest priority is the safety of our students and student families.  Please be responsible to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The slightest symptoms in one individual, could mean something tragic for another. Stay diligent, we will as well. We are not taking this lightly. 

Kindest Regards, The Little Nook

Back to school...

Freshly sharpened pencils and new boxes of crayons. Is there anything like it? Oh, how we love that feeling of a new beginning, a fresh start to a school year. Children walking in with summer written all over their faces, excitement in their wide-eyes capturing every detail of a new classroom. 

It's here and we cannot wait! Laughter and learning are about to fill these rooms. Join us for our first day of school on September 4th. We would love to have you!

Join us for...Summer at The Little Nook


It is cold and rainy outside, but Spring is on the horizon. The beach house is booked, flip-flops are waiting for you and while you sip your coffee, dreams of lemonade chilling in the fridge are almost close enough to reach. School will be out for the summer before we know it!

The Little nook has been itching for warmer days and some sunshine, and rumor is we have a few things up our sleeves that will keep your Little Nooker cool and busy in the heat of the summer.
{And give Mom a little time to soak up some Vitamin D, solo perhaps?}

Lend us your little ones this summer -  our flexible summer scheduling is the perfect fit for the beach bummer. We promise to soak them with sun and learning fun! Feeding curiosity, and keep their brains busy and polished for the school year, is our trick of the trade. Click the link below to view our Summer Registration and for a peek at the Summertime fun we hope to share with your little one :)
