The Hobbitts curriculum is enhanced by providing the children with opportunities to step out of the classroom into the community, and inviting the community into Hobbitts. Children might not ordinarily have the chance to take a ride on a hay wagon or jump on a trampoline. The world is opened up to them as community workers enter Hobbitts. The importance of family is also recognized by honoring our mothers and our fathers during special events.
Field Trips and Events
Hobbitts offers a number of off-site field trips.Trips to Luther Farm, Hillside Orchard,
Gymnastics World, and Virginia Kendall Park are just a few of the many field trips
that the children will enjoy.
In addition to off-site field trips, Hobbitts offers many
on-site events.Special visitors such
as the police and fire departments, the Richfield librarian, and a dentist pay
us a visit every year.The Bubble Lady,
Outback Ray, the Illusion Factory, and Lake Erie Puppet Theater have also
visited Hobbitts Preschool.
Children will enjoy holiday parties, the Hobbitts Winter
Carnival, and the end-of-the-year picnic at the Brecksville Community Center’s
playground.A Father’s Day event as well
as a Mother’s Day Tea are favorite occasions at the Hobbitts Preschool.
Before the school year begins children and parents will have
the opportunity to visit with the teacher.This is a wonderful time for the child to get to know the teacher, the
surroundings, and what he/she might expect when coming to school for the first
time.The parents will have a chance to
spend some time talking with the teacher about their child and have questions
answered about the program.
In January teachers will evaluate the children’s
progress.Parents will then meet with
the teacher for a midyear conference.Parents can always feel free to call or meet with the teacher throughout
the year if they have any concerns about their child.
