  • We "Rocked" Earth Day!

    Look and see how we celebrated Earth Day!

    All of the children here at Bright Horizons of Newington loved learning about why Earth Day is important.  As part of our Well Aware curriculum, the children learned about different ways to take care of the Earth.  We talked about ways to save energy, planting, and ways to reduce the amount of waste we create.

    The children did a great job packing "waste free" lunches by using reusable containers and had a great time making a "rocking" art project by painting one of the earth natural!

    Check out our Photo Album of all the wonderful things the kids did during our Earth Day Celebration!
