It is hard to believe October flew by so quickly! The children had a fun month with lots of activities both in and out of the preschool. Field trips to pumpkin patches, apple picking and a walk to the Berwyn Fire Station were some of the fun learning experiences the children had. Play dates at Wilson Park and lunch at Mod Pizza were well attended. Thank you to the BUMNS Parent/ Board for planning socials. Thank you to the families for supporting our fundraisers. On Saturday, November 12th Dads are invited to the Berwyn Tavern for a Dad’s Happy Hour.

During the month of November the children will be talking about what it means to be thankful. Gratitude develops when young children engage in acts of kindness, whether it be sharing a toy or just being a good friend. By learning gratitude, children become sensitive to the feelings of others, develop empathy and other life skills.
Thanksgiving feasts will be celebrated by all classes. Turkey, cheese, and vegetables will be served. The children love this BUMNS tradition of sharing a meal together. Lessons will be taught about the first Thanksgiving Feast celebrated by the Native Americans and Pilgrims.

BUMNS is partnering with Berwyn United Methodist Church to support the church’s mission of helping those less fortunate. We are asking for toy donations costing $15 or less during November. The toys will be donated to the children of the Methodist Midtown Parish in Philadelphia.
