Heart & Soul – Teacher In Service

Teachers enjoyed two days of their own Back to School as they attended their annual in-service training. This year’s theme, Heart and Soul, featured uplifting lessons on the impact teachers have on the lives of students well beyond their years together. Interfaith President and CEO Missy Herndon welcomed the teachers and invited them to Get on the Bus this year with Interfaith’s newest Energy Bus series.

ICDC Director, Martha Klie was proud to show off the newest updates to the school and exciting upcoming goals for this newest school year!

Interfaith Child Development Center opened its doors in 1976 and we are all looking forward to a wonderful 42nd year!

 

ICDC Goes International

What a wonderful week to travel with our families and learn so much about their family traditions and culture. Thank you to all the families and students who participated and shared all about their traditions!

 

Veggie Village Field Trip

The children in the 4 & 5 year-old classes enjoyed a trip to Interfaith’s Veggie Village located at Wendtwood in Creekside. Ms. Sarah, the Interfaith Garden Coordinator, read stories and explained all about the community garden maintained by volunteers. Children were able to taste plants straight out of the garden! We love this example of how ICDC takes learning outside of the classroom with the hands-on integration of learning.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow – Family Night!

Interfaith Child Development Center hosted annual Silent Auction and Family Evening on Friday, March 23rd.  The theme was “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. Children enjoyed Kona Ice, face painting, cookie decorating and a Taekwondo demonstration by Cho Taekwondo while parents browse over 140 silent auction items.

This annual event is the school’s primary fundraiser which is possible by the hard work of ICDC’S Parents Club and wonderful volunteers. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the school. Thank you to all the parents, staff and volunteers who made this event a great success.
