Chess Club
Mindess students have been putting their minds to the test in Chess Club! Each week they have the opportunity to learn the rules of this timeless game as well as strategies. They finish each session with a game and it sure does get intense!

 After the hustle and bustle of last week which included Gold Rush and a field trip, it was time to get back to being creative! Mindess EDP students had the opportunity to create their own Lava Lamps. They were able to examine the chemical reactions taking place to create this cool project!

The Mindess EDP was chock-full of activities this week. It started with Gold Rush, the best event of the season that had been so greatly missed!
Then on Friday the students and teachers took a trip to Ashland State Park, to kick off the next Discovery Center all about hiking in the woods.
What a week to be part of such an amazing community!

After a 3-year hiatus, the full Warren EDP Luau was back on 5/11/22!
Tropical games, crafts, Hawaiian inspired food and a prize table fit for
the Big Kahuna kept kids and parents alike wanting more.
A huge thanks goes out to the Warren EDP families and staff that made it a great success.
Until next year-Aloha!

Fiesta Fun

Our annual Pittaway EDP Fiesta took place on May 5th. Many thanks to the children, parents and staff that participated!  We couldn't have pulled off such a great party without all the older sibling and parent volunteers.  Ms. Melissa even made a special guest appearance!  What a fun way to end the school year!

Games like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Bull Toss, Pyramid Race, and Jai Alai were big hits. The students also made crafts like colorful flower pots, Mexican masks, and pinatas.  Children won tickets and traded them in for prizes at the busy prize table.  





We're As Cold As Ice

Warren EDP students got downright chilly during Ms. Ashley's ice cube painting activity!
  The children were able use pre-colored ice cubes and create pictures and designs as
 the ice melted on the paper.  They were also able to see a solid change to liquid as the ice melted!


Spring Has Sprung

The month of April brings an exciting time to our Dramatic Play Center.  As we watch the daffodils emerge outside at the playground, we are arranging our own flower bouquets inside the classroom at the EDP Flower Shop.

Customers are lined up asking for fresh cut flowers to bring home.  The classroom smells sweet from all the blossoms.  

The students will plant grass seed this week and make observations as they watch it grow.  

Spring has sprung at Pittaway EDP!

This month of March held such an amazing Discovery Center. Miss Natalie brought growth to the students at the Mindess EDP. They learned all about Fairy Gardens, hydroponic planting and how to sustain plant life. What a fun month of Growth at EDP.
