Butterfly Release!

Our classes have been enjoying watching the life cycle of a butterfly unfold. After caring for their caterpillars and watching them form chrysalises, this week our friends released their beautiful butterflies and watched them fly away.  Maybe we’ll see them fluttering around our garden!

This video recaps what the children learned – butterflies are truly fascinating!

Earth Day 2015

We had a wonderful Earth Day celebration at Friends Together Nursery!  The children made a collaborative art project from recycled materials and planted flowers to beautify our garden.

We were honored that Manorhaven’s Deputy Mayor Lucretia Steele and Village Clerk Leslie Gross were able to join the festivities!

 

Camp Registration Now Open!

We are so excited to offer 10 WEEKS of summer camp for both our toddlers and preschoolers. With weekly themes, indoor and outdoor play, sports, art, music, crafts, exploration and good old fashioned summer fun… it’s going to be a summer to remember. We hope all of our friends can join us! Not only do the children have a great time, our summer program is also a great way to keep your child in touch with school over the summer and ease the transition back in the fall.

More details, schedule options and pricing available on our CAMP page. We’re offering half day (9-12) and full day (9-2) options, and of course you can talk to our Enrichment Daycare and Early Childhood Center about options for extending those hours even further (we’re here 7:30 AM- 6 PM).

Sign up now – space is limited!
