HF ANNUAL ART SHOW

To wrap up a fantastic summer, our children and teacher’s held an art show for parents to see what they have been working on all summer. We had an amazing turn out and the children were SO proud to show of their artwork!

Below is a snippet from our show:

Reptiles Alive! @ HF

Today our children had a visit from Rachel at Reptiles Alive! Our children got to meet and greet turtles, snakes, frogs and a blue-tongue skink!

They learned about what type of food these reptiles eat, where they are from and how they came to live at Reptiles Alive!

To book your own party or field trip, please visit: www.reptilesalive.com

Water Sensory Fun!

Today the children in our Pre-K II class explored water tubes of various sizes with funnels to see how long the water would take to come out of the bottom. This activity was a lot of FUN on a hot day and also wallet-friendly!

All materials you need can be found at Dollar Tree; Pool noodles, funnels and zip ties! This costs about $12 to make (depending on how many noodles you want)!

We would love for you to come join us next time: 703-830-1200

Look Before You Lock

With summer temperatures reaching into the 90’s outside, it is important to remind caregivers of children to “Look before you lock” to avoid children being left in hot cars.

Some important safety tips to prevent a tragedy from happening include putting your purse, cell phone or left shoe in the backseat with your child.

Please see below the website for Where’s Baby? This site features car safety facts and ways to help keep you and your family safe during hot weather:
