School is in Session!
It’s September, which means a new school year has begun at North Bay Children’s Center. Well-established research continues to emphasize the importance of early childhood education as an essential building block of a child’s future success. In addition to a classroom curriculum that promotes social, emotional and cognitive development, NBCC’s daily activities include nutrition, exercise and nature which are proven to positively impact future health outcomes and lifestyle choices. Across our fifteen center sites from Novato to Healdsburg, teaching staff have been preparing for students and welcoming families back into the classrooms. For some children this is their first preschool experience, an exciting and treasured time, full of early learning opportunities that prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond!
At NBCC we make discovery fun and inviting. Students have enjoyed getting to know their teachers, meeting new friends, and trying new foods, all while having fun and spending lots of time outside. Garden time looks different at every site! Here are a few activities from NBCC classrooms this month:

● Fitch Mountain preschoolers practice cutting fruit and explore bubble making

● Meadow View students conduct a seed investigation and learn about the "rollie pollies" (pill bugs) in their garden

● Steele Lane preschoolers practice collaborative play with their water table

● McDowell families prepare and fill garden beds for fall

● Bellevue students care for their worm bins
