First Day of Toddler Time

Today was Diego's 1st day of Toddler Time. Toddler Time is a program through Creative Discoveries Preschool for kids ages 18 months to 3 years and is sort of a pre-preschool. The class is once per week and Diego and I go together. I of course had to take the traditional first day of school on the front porch picture, and it turned out pretty cute even though he was trying to get away!
Diego had sort of a rough start with a lot of tears when we got there and a lot of "home" requests, but after a few minutes he calmed down and really enjoyed himself. The first hour was playtime and there were all sorts of fun things for the kids to do. There is a big bin of dried beans for them to play in sort of like a sandbox, a wooden castle, puzzles, play dough, paint and fun puzzles. After playtime, we clean up and have circle time on the carpet. The teacher plays songs and brings out props for the kids to play with such as shakers and pom poms and they all sort of dance around, its really fun. Then its snack time and playtime outside. We had a great time and I look forward to continuing the class with Diego!
