We love JDN…..











Our little graduates written a book about what they love about coming to Jenkintown Day Nursery each day.  The children love coming to JDN to learn letters and numbers, learning to tell time, going on field trips, playing soccer with Coach T, learning songs from Ms. Jessie, and so much more.

Butterfly, butterfly…Fly, fly away!

Today, we released the butterflies that the children hatched from caterpillars. Mr. Ted held his usual science classes on the life cycle of the butterfly. The children learned the stages from caterpillar to butterfly.  The grand finale was the great release of all 25 butterflies.  A special thank you to Mrs. Barbara, a long time supporter and grandmother of Jenkintown Day Nursery, for donating the butterflies.



Teacher Appreciation Week

The week of May 1st through the 5th of May, we will be celebrating our unsung heroes—OUR TEACHERS!!  Our teachers work tiressly through the day teaching and caring for our little ones.  We will be honoring them like the STARS they are with a Hollywood theme. Please see the flyer by the front desk for more information.

Mr. Ted, the Science Guy….

Have you met our famed Science Teacher, Mr. Ted? He is our resident Science Guy who teaches the children everything about Science. This week the children are focusing on hermit crabs and their habitat. He also spoke to the children about what hermit crabs like to eat, what their shells mean to them, and each child was able to view them through the hermit crabs’ special cage.

Last month, the children learned about absorption with seeds.  They planted seedlings and saw how the roots took hold and drank the water.  Each child was able to create their own dirt pod.  At the end of the month, the children were able to take home their very own Coleus plant.  The Coleus plant has been a fixture in the center for a few years and has continued to produce offspring for the children to take home.
