Teacher Appreciation Week was fantastic! The teachers were treated to two days of breakfasts, handmade cards, flowers, and gift cards from their students with help from our amazing parent group! Our teachers were honored by Ms. Clark at their staff meeting with an yummy lunch provided by the parents. What a beautiful way to go straight into the Mother’s Day weekend! God bless our teachers!

It’s our second session of our Nature Adventurers enrichment program! The children were amazed to see how different the forest looked like since our last visit. Yellow flowers replaced with purple flowers, a broken tree from the last storm and tadpoles!

Today’s #teachertuesday showcases our amazing Miss Sue! Sue has worked for UCPP a total of 18 years! She is the lead teacher of our Frog Class, a happy group of toddlers who come to school three days a week. There is no two year old child immune to her charm and the same goes for garden snakes that occasionally visit our playground! She enjoys sharing her love for nature with her students and she just led our whole school with an extensive tree study. She loves flannel board stories, music and dancing. Miss Sue makes us so proud!

We love our many amazing sensory table experiences at UCPP.
Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. This type of play also supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction. It is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child and helps
children learn sensory attributes (cold, warm, wet, dry, etc). You will always see one or two sensory tables in each of our classrooms everyday!

This short video is an amazing refresher or a great place to get started on your Conscious Discipline journey! The beauty of knowing the brain state model is that it helps you to understand behavior of all people, not just children. Wishing you well! ❤️⭐️❤️

Whether you’re new to CD, or you’ve been with us for many years, it’s always helpful to review the Brain State Model from time to time. In this video by Certified Instructor Abbi Kruse, you’ll review the three brain states, how they apply to others (and yourself), as well as a helpful way to teach the brain to others using your hand! Watch Abbi’s full webinar here: https://bit.ly/2GgPn7a
As always, we wish you well! #iHeartCD #brainstatemodel #consciousdiscipline #CDwithadults

We teach an amazing Conscious Discipline program at UCPP! It helps us learn how to manage our big feelings like angry, happy, sad, and scared.

We started by placing many different “construction” materials on the patio and all the classes worked on the project as they came to the playground. Amazing to see young minds cooperating and working to a similar goal.

Our Miss Ginger highly recommends the amazing face painter at Glory Days on Wednesdays 6:00-8:00pm (and it’s free!). We receive 10% of all dining receipts that supports our scholarship fund. Just bring the itemized receipt to preschool! See you tonight!!

Mrs. Martin begins each morning with a special greeting for every child as they arrive for the day. This moment builds a connection that reminds the child that they have been noticed and will be kept safe by their teacher, the safe keeper of the classroom! As a Conscious Discipline school, our job is to keep the children safe and their job is to help keep it safe! It’s what a school family does!!

Feast your eyes on these amazing balancing skills! Balance is a significant component of child development and relies heavily on the vestibular system. Children must learn to balance before they can progress to higher level gross motor skills like stair negotiation, hopping, galloping or skipping. Lucky for us we do these things everyday at UCP Preschool!

“A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just”. ~Pope Francis

We often tell the children not to pick the flowers so they can continue to grow big and strong. Mercy is a good word to describe that action.... and it’s not easy!! #mercy #lentucp #ucppreschool #dontpicktheflowers #preschool #reston #springhassprung #rainraingoaway

Happy birthday, Mr. Rogers! Your lessons continue to encourage young children to be kind to others and for adults to be mindful and really listen to children. Our Conscious Discipline program speaks the same language! 🎈⭐️❤️
