Zen Garden and a peaceful environment

Zen Garden and a peaceful environment

Children turning 3 by August 1, 2015 are visiting the Children’s House classrooms on Tuesday, February 10 through Friday, Feb. 13!

  • Would you love to see what a Children’s House classroom looks like?
  • Do you wonder what sort of work choices and Montessori materials are in a Children’s House classroom?
  • Are you curious how 3’s, 4’s and Kindergartners can be in the same classroom?

Parents will meet at 8:30 a.m. in the library for conversation about the Children’s House program.  Little House teachers will walk your children to the library at 9 a.m. so you and your child can visit a Children’s House classroom together and explore the work choices with a Children’s House child as your personal tour guide for approximately 30 minutes.

Please R.S.V.P. to Kathy Heckert at (419) 866-1931 or  There are a limited number of spaces available each day, so call or email today!




Chair scrubbing has been a popular choice in Rose Room!  This is a complex work choice that requires a great amount of concentration!  First, this is work for one friend only.  So if someone else is choosing this work the friend must wait his/her turn.  Once it is his/her turn the child takes the small pitcher to the sink, turns on the sink and fills the pitcher.  Then, the child takes the pitcher to the scrubbing area and pours the water into the bucket.  Once the bucket has been filled to satisfaction the child begins to “write” on the chair with the soap.  Next, he/she scrubs with the scrub brush and sponge.  When finished, he/she dries with a towel.  Finally, he/she is ready to dump the water out of the bucket at the sink and return the bucket to the scrubbing area.


Cloud dough is a soft play dough.


We used equal corn starch and shaving cream to make the cloud dough.


Rose Room friends enjoyed mixing the ingredients together.


Welcome back Rose Room friends!  Everyone has been happy to be back.  We made cloud dough and introduced glue painting.  For the cloud dough, we simply mixed one cup of cornstarch with a can of shaving cream.  It is a super soft play dough.  For glue painting, we put a small amount of glue in a bowl and the child uses a small paint brush to apply the glue to a piece of card stock.  Then the child places torn up tissue paper on the glue and hangs it to dry.  The children have enjoyed both new activities.

We hope to have warmer weather so we can venture outside in the snow.  Please send snow pants, boots and hats.

Thank you!
