Crescenta-Cañada Cooperative Nursery School – CCNS – director and teacher Nita Imm decided to reach out to the working parents of her students by inviting them to a special CCNS session … on a Saturday!
Often just one parent participates at the cooperative on a regular basis while the other parent works, only hearing about the activities at CCNS. Imm decided to open the doors of the nursery school on Saturday, Jan. 14 to give working parents an inside look at how their children spend their time.
Working dads took to the floor and played with their Busy Bear (4 year olds) or Darling Duck (3 year olds.) The day was filled with smiles and laughter as dads interacted with their children.
The Darling Ducks and their dads painted handprints and decorated little flowerpots with stickers, then planted a flower in the pot to take home for their mothers. Both classes participated in story time, danced the Chicken Dance and the Hokey Pokey and enjoyed snacks together.
The Busy Bears painted footprints with their dads and, although a little messy, everyone had a fun and memorable time. The Bears showed their parent how well they use scissors, spell their names and made flowers to take home for their mothers. Photos of fathers with their child were taken to commemorate the special day.
CCNS is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd, La Canada. (818) 952-2524 www.ccnsonline.com
