ten logs in the wooden button meadow

The Wooden Button is settling into a familiar routine, in the lives of both our students and parents. Our children come home singing songs, with stones and sticks and leaves. We have celebrated the birthdays of two of our students, baked countless rolls, and chopped vegetables for soup. Our assistant teacher, who the children call Miss Cherish, brought in ten wooden logs for the Wooden Button Meadow. They are used as seats during circle time, but are also used in creative outdoor play.

The Harvest Festival

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at the Harvest Festival to say hello! What a beautiful day it was. We were thrilled about all the interest in our growing school and to meet each of you and your children. We hope you walked away with your very own handmade Wooden Button necklace! 

Seeing our children thrive in school at the Wooden Button is what inspires us. Talking to the scores of parents and children we met on Saturday motivates us even more!

Classes at Wooden Button have been underway for only a little over a month but we are already busy planning for the 2013-2014 school year. As we discussed with many of you, our plan is to run two classes next Fall, a 3-4 year old program and a 5-6 year old program. 

In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Stop by our booth and say hello! We will be offering free temporary tattoos and make-it-yourself button jewelry—for children as well as adults. We will have information about our school and our plans for the 2012-2013 school year, and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
