This month we are celebrating all things April! From bunnies, frogs, flowers, butterflies, and eggs, we're having a blast. Teddy and friends are learning new skills, reviewing old, practicing counting skills, and talking about the letter "S". Alongside all the excitement we are enjoying the many circuit activities, games, and books for this month.

Here a few Snaps of what Spring time has brought to the Tumble Bus!

WE'RE GROWING! .....

Welcome our New Manager and Fitness Teacher Mrs. Eden Mabry!

Eden Mabry graduated in 2017 from Limestone College with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and spent all four years competing on the Cross country and Track team as a long distance runner. She has been running for over ten years now, and although she's running the TUMBLEBUS now, she is still actually running in her free time. She fell in love with children through her experiences of going to Belize during the summers on mission trips with Limestone Colleges CELP Program which lead to her job of being a 3 year old preschool teacher after she graduated. Eden is full of energy and has a passion for helping grow the hearts, minds, and bodies of children.

Teddy Parent Tip of the Month

Teddy Shares on:


How to Win Cooperation?


Develop Predictable Routines


Kids cooperate in school because they know what's expected of them, says Beth Cohen-Dorfman, educational coordinator at Chicago's Concordia Avondale Campus preschool. "The children follow essentially the same routine day after day, so they quickly learn what they are supposed to be doing, and after a while barely need reminding." While it would be impractical to have the same level of structure at home, the more consistent you are, the more cooperative your child is likely to be, suggests Cohen-Dorfman. Decide on a few routines and stick to them! Examples include deciding when everyone gets dressed or reading before bed once all jimmies are on ect. Eventually, following these "house rules" will become second nature to your child. This will ultimatley make their life/ behavior and your life a lot easier (Lamb, 2018).
