The children adjusted well to their teachers, new friends and BUMNS school routine during September. They are enjoying adventures to Music, KIM and of course, the playground. Game Room is buzzing with activity. The Game Room’s soft academic environment gives the children an introduction to pre-reading and pre-math concepts. Thank you to the Game Room volunteers who assist teachers in the Game Room. There is a need for additional Game Room volunteers. If you are able to volunteer once a month please let the office know.
Our youngest 2’s are feeling secure and safe in school. Early tears have dried and the children have become accustomed their classrooms. As the year progresses, the 2’s will enjoy socializing that begins as parallel play.

October brings cooler weather, colorful leaves and exciting events at BUMNS. October is Fire Safety Awareness month. 5 Day classes will walk to the Berwyn Fire Station for a tour and a lesson on fire safety. The 3 & 4 Day children will have a visit from the Fire Company’s truck and firemen. The children learn that firefighters are helpful heroes. All classes will practice a fire drill at school.

Thank you for supporting BUMNS school fundraisers. The Rita’s Water Ice Celebrity Scoop was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed the warm sun and water ice. 15 % of the money spent at Rita’s on Wednesday will be donated to BUMNS. The Sports Day was fun for everyone!
BUMNS parents enjoyed an evening at AR Workshop in Malvern. 20% of proceeds from the evening at AR are being donated to BUMNS.

I am occasionally asked why fundraise at BUMNS? Fundraising helps distinguish our preschool from other schools in the area. Monies raised have built our playground, given us funds to add new educational tools to our Game Room and classes, installed a security system, painted classrooms, bought music instruments and KIM equipment. Fundraising helps support our school environment. Tuitions do not cover the full cost of education. Fundraisers help BUMNS offset the costs of providing a high-quality learning experience to children. Fundraising enhances a child’s early education experience.
