Welcome to September and a new year of fun and adventures in ACE! Now that Springboro Schools and Bright Beginnings are both in session, our regular routine has been taking shape. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and loving learning environment for your child/children during his/her off school hours, while encouraging cooperation, enrichment and respect among all children. We hope your child will enjoy his/her time at ACE with his/her friends here, and are looking forward to a positive year ahead!
Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been doing and learning about this month:
Fruit of the Spirit: self-control
Bible Verse: “God saw everything that He had made and, indeed, it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31)
Mission: Snack Pack drive
These donations will help the Springboro Community Assistance Center with the Backpack program. Thank you so much for your generosity!
Special Days in September
19th - Early Release from Springboro Schools

Tour of the Continents: Africa
Jambo! (Hello!) We will be learning all sorts of fun facts about Africa! We are excited to do some awesome experiments with the kids. From sun-made smores, to dirt sun block! The kids will also enjoy African games including balancing baskets on their heads, and a Kenyan math game called Shisima. Make sure you ask your kiddos about the game of SPUD too! We'll be sampling African cuisine as well. From plantains and yams to Mama Panya's Pancakes and Elephant biscuits.
G.P.S. - Grow, Pray, Serve
Every morning before school and afternoon, after snack, we gather in the sanctuary and discuss the Fruit of the Spirit, watch and read Bible stories, listen to inspirational stories and learn to listen to each other. We incorporate character development with each of our sessions. Children learn to pray with compassion, joy and love for not only their families and friends but the world around us. We are excited to watch them grow this year!
