Recently our preschoolers enjoyed a day outside of Anchor Center  to explore our great Stapleton community. With the assistance of staff and parents, the children navigated the nearby residential streets and took a short walk down the road to a nearby Cold Stone, where they ordered their favorite frozen treat. Afterwards the adventure continued as the kiddos cooled off in Stapleton's main square water feature. What fun our preschoolers had splashing around in the fountain!

“Goodnight room, goodnight moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon...”

A children’s classic that already is a candidate for the all-time best feel-good book, “Goodnight Moon,” has gotten a boost: A University of Colorado Boulder team printed the first 3D version of it, allowing visually impaired children and their families to touch objects in the story -- like the cow jumping over the moon -- as it is read aloud.

Eight little five-year olds received their diplomas and tossed their sailor hats into the air as they “graduated” from Anchor Center for Blind Children’s preschool program on June 12.  Their happy voices sang their songs including the Hokey Pokey ending with a boisterous “Hot Diggity Dawg!!”  Claire practiced the words to the Bookworm Song so often that on the day of the performance, she had a sore throat!  Her parents confirmed that they, too, knew every word sung by Claire day and night.

Each child marched down the aisle independently including Izzie who, with help, pedaled his tricycle.  Maria couldn't wait to grab her diploma and Damien ran down as fast as he could and his eagerness brought laughter from all.  Sundka enthusiastically smiled and sang but her bright cheer of “Hot Diggity Dawg” brought down the house.

We wish each of these children Happy Sails into their future.
