Students at Crescenta-Cañada Cooperative Nursery School (CCNS) celebrated Easter by dying eggs then hunting for them in a traditional Easter egg hunt.
Students awaited the arrival of the Easter bunny for weeks with director Nita Imm preparing arts and crafts, reading Easter stories and teaching Easter songs to the Darling Ducks (3-year-old program) and the Busy Bears (4-year-old program).
Parents lent a hand and were in attendance for the Easter egg hunt, which included a song performance from the children. They hopped and sang while wearing bunny ears and wiggling bunny noses.
“I love teaching the children about the coming of spring, new life and Easter,” said Imm.
As a cooperative, CCNS is guided by a volunteer board of directors to establish policies and guidelines while parents join together to manage the day-to-day activities and maintenance of the school. CCNS is Christian based and is non-denominational.
