The day is finally here!! It’s Visiting Day for our amazing outdoor program that begins next week! Our staff has been working so hard with so many agencies to make our program, not only safe, but exciting and new! Still the same high quality curriculum, emotional literacy focused and exploring the forest school concept! Stay tuned!
This is an excellent visual and explanation to support your Safe Place at home!
The Safe Place is a sacred space where children are instructed, encouraged, and supported in attending to their emotional upsets through self-regulation skills we have taught them during teachable moments. The journey from unconscious emotions to managing our feelings involves five steps: I Am, I Calm, I Feel, I Choose, and I Solve. #iHeartCD
Our pre-k virtual students have been outside exploring nature and making the most amazing creations! The Moose class are given fun activities weekly and are able to share safely with each other via zoom circle times and the Class Dojo platform. This is just a sample of our everyday fun! Each day brings a new adventure!

It can be super challenging to practice our Conscious Discipline skills when we can't do the basic elements of eye contact, touch, presence and playfulness with our families in person. However, the company has developed many resources for us to use at home, even without the premium membership! We encourage everyone to take a look at the website and start your journey today. Reach out to us for help!

We love Pastor Beth and Pastor Marcus! They make chapel oh so fun!
Lots to celebrate today, including Pastor Appreciation Day. We are grateful for the leadership of Pastor Beth and Pastor Marcus!
Come one, come all!

Our first two weeks of virtual preschool has gone so fast! The children have worked very hard on many fun activities, engaging in zoom circle time, and preschooling at home with their special grown ups. Their strength and perseverance to stay connected during this difficult time is extraordinary and we are so thankful. We had a special Tinker Box parade mid week and it was so fantastic to see our school family, even through glass windows and masks. When we are all healthy and safe, we can go back to school. And we can’t wait!
We are so proud to be a school that values emotional literacy and self regulation skills in not only children, but the adults that care for them. Conscious Discipline is a proven, comprehensive approach that empowers adults and children with skills that create a safe, connected, problem-solving environment for families. We highly encourage you to explore the Conscious Discipline website. Along with a library of resources, there are dozens of videos and helpful articles to support hard at work parents! https://consciousdiscipline.com/

WOW! Our first week of virtual preschool was so fun! Along with fun activities and videos posted to our private platform, Mr. Nick ended the week with a interactive Zoom circle time! We will continue to grow and learn as a School Family to make this preschool option as high quality as our in person program has always been! Thanks for your support! Go UCPP! We got this!
As so many children are participating in virtual learning, many as the only option for school, this is a simple, helpful practice to eye health!
The wait is over! The “20/20/20 rule” is a great reminder as we learn from home, teach from home, and work from home! Every 20 minutes using a screen, look away at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Your eyes will thank you later!
Today is the DAY! We begin our virtual preschooling journey together until we can be together safely! Our teachers will provide weekly lesson plans, activity posts and videos to our private ClassDojo virtual school, support on our Facebook family page, along with a weekly group Zoom meeting. Our goal is to provide a high quality learning experience working as a team with the hard working parents of UCPP! We got this!

You are invited to a Blessing of the Devices during online worship today. Pastor Beth will pray over students and teachers and their devices that they are using for school. Online worship begins in one hour!
We are so fortunate to have Mr. Nicholas Black leading the way for our first ever Virtual School experience that begins next Monday! Along with the support of our administrators and teachers, Nicholas has developed an at home program that reflects our high quality preschool program using the Class Dojo platform. We will stay connected until we can be together in person!
Nicholas Black graduated from George Mason in 2016 with a Bachelors of Music with a concentration in Music Composition and a Minor in Music and Technology. He has been teaching students for more than 8 years and it is one of his greatest passions! In addition to teaching here at UCPP, he teaches private viola and violin lessons. He loves drawing, writing music, and creating art through many different mediums. His hope for the year is that all our wonderful students will be able to express themselves through art, music, and nature and discover the world around them. Our goal is to relate these mediums to math, literature, science and more! Mr. Nick was the lead teacher in the Moose class and the assistant teacher in the Monkey Class last year. Fun Fact! Nicholas attended UCPP as a preschooler! He still has fond memories of his teachers and has returned to pass those memories on to your children.
Thank you for your trust in UCPP! We can't wait to get started!
On this unique #LaborDay, we recognize the hardworking people who keep our country moving forward. A special shout out to the dedicated FCPS educators who embark on an extraordinary school year tomorrow.
We will continue to show our gratitude for all the essential workers on the front lines of this public health crisis by taking steps to stay safe and healthy. We wish you well!

Did you know that today is International Mud Day? It’s not too late to make a mud kitchen like we have at preschool! Just grab the hose, some black dirt, and kitchen tools! We’d love to see your creations!!
worldforumfoundation.org Gillian reflected on the lack of mud as Perth is situated on a sandy plain and also the reluctance of the culture to ‘get dirty.’ Bishnu on the other hand had lots of mud but many children did not have enough clothes to be able to get them dirty or soap to wash them. On her return to Australia, ...

From Miss Ginger:
This is the last photo I took the day we left school, 63 days ago. I remember thinking about the “Photo of the Day”
Challenge never once thinking I wouldn’t see everyone the next day. Our School Family has worked hard to stay connected these last 9 weeks. As we go into our “last week of school”, I will remember how happy this day was for me.... following the Monkeys to the playground.
