FREE Mommy & Me Classes

MOMMY AND ME TODDLER STORY TIME

Toddlers have unique learning needs. We’ve created a special fast-paced FREE story time for 1-, 2-, and 3-year-olds (and parents) to enjoy interactive stories, songs, and games that encourage emerging language skills. This 30-minute class includes finger plays, puppets, interactive felt-board, bubbles, and experiments, along with a variety of other highly engaging activities. Directly following this class, families are provided with an opportunity to explore our classrooms.

Transport. Day


We cordially invite you to participate in our 18th Annual Transportation Day. Our highly anticipated Ahwatukee community event showcases over 40 different vehicles including a Helicopter, Fire Trucks, a City Bus, Police Vehicles, Boats, Hummers, UPS Truck, Garbage Trucks, and more. This is a great family event that includes activities for kids of all ages.  Families can explore all different types of transportation vehicles, live entertainment, inflatable bouncers, petting zoo, train rides, games, raffle baskets, boutique vendors, and food trucks and vendors.

There is no price for admission, but a portion of all the funds collected support the educational needs of our students, and our ability to maintain a high-quality, family-centered, loving, Christian preschool.  We also offer free rides on a School Bus to Kyrene de la Sierra Elementary. 
 
Transportation Day raises funds that will help us continue to provide a high-quality, family-centered, loving, Christian preschool.  Last year we hosted approximately 3,000 attendees and raised over $10,000 for our school.  We hope to do this again this year – but it’s not possible without your help!  We need volunteers, boutique vendors, food vendors, vehicles, raffle donations, and more! 
 
Last year, Transportation Day included over 40 boutique vendors, 11 food trucks and vendors, over 150 raffle baskets, over 40 vehicle operators, 20 teachers, 15 church members, 10 high school students, and 10 God’s Garden parents. 
 
If you would like to volunteer at or Sponsor this event, please contact the school at 480-460-0081 or godsgarden@horizonchurch.com.
 
We look forward to seeing you at Transportation Day on February 24th, 2018!!

 

Classroom Happenings

There’s a lot going on at God’s Garden this month.  Come join us at the following events:

   Registration for the 2018-2019 School Year is NOW OPEN to the public. If your child is planning to return to God's Garden for the 2018-2019 school year, please Register your child as soon as possible.  The earlier you register your child, the better we can guarantee class scheduling options for the next school year!  New to this year's Registration Process - We have added a supply fee of $80 per child (due with August's tuition). Supply fees help us keep tuition low and are used to purchase consumable supplies for your child’s classroom including, but not limited to paint, paint brushes, paper, crayons, markers, glue, glitter, and other supplies.

   Registration for Summer Camps is now available and includes 5 weeks of Summer Camp offered Monday through Thursday from 8:45AM - 11:45AM.  The Cost is $90/week.  Extended care is available Monday through Thursday directly following Summer Camps from 11:45AM-1:45PM.  The Cost is $16/day.  Registration is due in advance.  Now walk-ins accepted.  Space is limited so register today.

   Please join us on May 7th and 8th for our last Chapel of the school year from 9:00AM to 9:20AM in the Horizon Worship Center to celebrate our love of God.  Chapel is led by our Pastor, Director, Teachers, and Church members.  We will be learning about Gentleness this month. Parents are highly encouraged to join us and participate.

   Please help Grow Our Garden with our annual garden fundraiser.  Paint a tile and leave a legacy that will beautify our garden.  Each 6x6 tile is just $20.00.  This is a fundraiser for our school.  Proceeds will be used to improve our playground.

   Come celebrate our teachers with us during the week of May 7th.  Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day.  Teachers provide so much for our students – inspiration, motivation, determination, etc. and though we can’t thank them enough, please join us as we shower our teachers with love and service this week!  Contact your Classroom Reps for more information on how you can help.

   It’s that time of year!  On May 17th and 18th all God’s Garden classrooms will be celebrating the end of the year with our annual water days.  On your scheduled Water Day, be sure to send your child with a bathing suit and towel.  Please apply sunscreen before arriving to school. The children will also enjoy Popsicles on this special day.  Volunteers welcome!
