There is a wisdom and power in the play of children. At MCP, we believe in a child's imagination and creativity. Our toys and activities are not powered by batteries but the child. The only things in our classroom with a battery are the clocks and the smoke alarms. We are electronic free because we play.

Although the academics are an important part of our program, we also want your child to be independent. We work very hard with children on putting on coats, putting their projects and papers into their cubby, working puzzles and activities on other own and so many little things that happen in our classroom help your child become an independent student.

There has been a seismic shift in the summer. Your child feels it. Store entryways welcome customers with markers, crayons, pencils and glue. Television commercials have smiling children in new clothes and your child knows...school is just around the corner. It has happened. The end of summer...the start of school draws near. Boredom. There are thousands of ideas and articles about how to keep your child busy at the end of the summer. Here are few that worked for me and my boys. So, put on your pajamas for a day. Hop in the car with some friends and picnic. Explore new parks and new community pools. End your child's summer with a few more adventures.
