Field Trips
Pre-K students take special field trips that support different areas of classroom study.

  • Eddy’s Fruit Farm - Early in the school year the children visit a working farm as they explore apples and the fall harvest.
  • Heinen’s - Food is an essential and important part of everyone’s life. During our field trip to Heinen’s, children experience a behind the scenes look at how a grocery store works and they in turn gain a better understanding about the food we purchase.
