April News

Hello everyone!

It's finally Spring, hopefully it will start to feel like it!! :) We are so excited to be back after Spring break and pray all of you had fun, family time.

We had a fun- filled March and enjoyed our special visitors we had throughout the month. It's fun to meet those who are hard at work in our community!

Here at Bright Beginnings we are very excited about all that we have planned for this month!


Our theme of the month is Spring

Our Fruit of the Spirit is: Patience

Our Bible verse is: "The earth is the Lord's" (Psalm 24:1)

Our activities this month will revolve around taking care of our earth and learning patience as we watch seeds sprout and caterpillars turn to butterflies . We will enjoy dirt, the rain and the many ways our earth comes to life after the winter . The weather is looking better as well and we are really excited to get back outside to play! :)
