I can’t tell you what peace of mind comes from knowing that the grand a month per child we drop on all-day preschool and pre-kindergarten goes toward the very best in classical education.
Logan attended this school for two years, and Dylan is in his second, and Daphne has this year and the next before she can start kindergarten at the local public school, which is excellent, thanks be to Allah.
During this time, we have brought home the greatest little art pieces and newsletters. Things like “This week’s musical artist is DeBussy…” or “Today we drew the Mona Lisa, with particular attention to…” I just wish I could find Dylan’s Degas dancing girl. He nailed it, right down to her little bun. Of all the kids, I think he has the best perspective.
Anyway, I just had to show you some of the things they’ve brought home lately, next to the works that inspired them…
(Oh, and if I ever find the Mondrian, I’ll post that too, and I am just waiting for Daphne’s rendering of Picasso’s Violin to come off the classroom wall! Picture a cup of coffee spilled over the outline of a… of a… pear? Crime scene chalk outline? Coffin? Cello?)
Oh! And I have no idea where this little gem fits into the Sistine Chapel ceiling… no amount of Googling yielded anything similar, but it’s so cute I had to put it up too.
