Preschool Readies for Their Big Race

By Renee Hennessey, Director of Preschool BigSing_2

At the Preschool this week, it has been all things Kentucky Derby. The floats are being painted and prepped for the parade that will precede our races next Wednesday. Our jockeys are creating their horses from some very interesting materials. The Parent Association will be sending out a sign-up sheet via email this week for items needed to make this a special day for all of our guests.  Please respond right away so they can fill in any last-minute details.  

Don’t let the rainy forecast keep you away from one of Louisville’s Derby traditions this weekend: the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair.  Our Preschool’s very talented Paul Harshaw will have his own booth displaying his wonderful paintings that are perfect for a child’s room or playroom.  I’m sure your child would love to see him in his other element – the art world!

If you are considering going to the Pegasus Parade, the best spot on the route, in my opinion, is at our Downtown Campus.  I took my son to view the parade there several times when he was younger and it offered easy access to parking (right next to the school), indoor restrooms at the school (no long lines), food, and being with other school families, which made it a great experience for us.  And if it wasn’t already great enough, now there are bouncy houses! Contact Kim Hales in the Development Office if you would like additional information.
