Registration underway for 2013-14 at Maharishi Preschool
Registration is now open for the 2013-14 school year at Maharishi Preschool.
Children ages 18 months to 5 years of age can attend two, three or five days a week. If a child turns 4 prior to Sept. 15, he or she will be in the prekindergarten class. If a child turns 18 months prior to Sept. 15, he or she will be in the younger preschool class, for children 18 months to 3 years of age.
The teachers will offer three options to see the preschool and learn more about the program. A child who has not previously attended Maharishi Preschool can receive tuition credit by attending any one of the three options and paying the tuition deposit no later than June 21.
Parents and children are invited to spend 9:30-11:50 a.m. May 24 in either the preschool or prekindergarten classrooms. The visiting children will join in song, story and dance and spend time playing in the Nature Explore Classroom. Parents will be able to talk with preschool teachers and Lower School Director Laura Bordow.
A workday and potluck are set from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 1 at the Nature Explore Classroom. Children and parents are invited to help create a few new sustainable areas for the Arbor Day-certified outdoor learning environment. They will build a new willow tunnel, learn to do worm composting and participate in a drum circle. Children will be able to build their own cobb mini-houses, make willow crowns, have their faces painted and play in the Nature Explore Classroom.
Maharishi School is welcoming Rebecca Bellonci as the new preschool director and prekindergarten teacher beginning this fall. Bellonci, her husband Peter, and third-grade daughter Victoria will be moving from Boone, N.C., to Fairfield this summer.
Bellonci is a certified Montessori teacher, has served as education director and lead teacher at a Montessori school in North Carolina and has conducted several parent education programs. A long-time meditator, Bellonci also is a practitioner of the TM-Sidhi program.
She will be available to meet with parents and children from 9 am.. to noon June 19 or June 20.
