We had a very eventful 2015. We got some exciting new features on our front playground (The Play Hive & the boat) and the biggest excitement was our giant birthday party in September as we turned 20 years old. We had a plaque dedication to our original owner Fred Hansen in his memory. It now is hanging just to the right of our front door. We had the largest graduating class we have ever had --- 28!!! Our Director went to a conference in Vermont as well as Saint Louis in continuuing pursuit of best practices. She also became the co-host of a podcast called Knee Deep in Play !!! Here it is if you would like to listen to some episodes or you can find it in Itunes to subscribe. Then in the fall she presented about our program at the NAEYC annual conference in Orlando. The display she used there is in our front hallway and takes up the wall! We are looking forward to another wonderful year in 2016. Five of our team members are going to a conference in Maryland in April and our Director will be there presenting about our work and program. Then she is heading back to Vermont this summer (Green Mountain Teachers Camp) but this time not as an attendee, she is presenting. We are super excited to be hosting a conference in March here in Halifax with Dan Hodgins as the presenter. It is open for anyone to attend and will be our 7th conference that we have hosted. Our front playground currently has many used Christmas Trees on it and if you are wondering about them, have a listen to this. Well, must get back at it. It is naptime here and soon enough the children will all be up and the fun will begin anew.
