We kicked things off with our 10-year anniversary party. When ​Tivoli Rainbow Garden P​reschool first started we had 6 children in Ilka’s program. We have since grown to over 20 families and relocated to a site in Mar Vista. It was a wonderful evening of sharing memories over live entertainment and catered food. The night finished with a fire dancing performance by one of our very own Tivoli Dads – what a treat!

Two weeks later, on June 15th, we celebrated Father’s Day at Mar Vista Park. To say thank you for all their love and care the children learned a little dance to invite their Dads to. They also made sandwiches for a picnic in the park. Pretzels, ball games, and a tug of war with a rope and the Dads was sooo much fun.  And to top things off the firemen from station 62 swung by! The children got to explore the firetruck and together with a fireman they could spray water out of the hose! What more could one ask for on a Friday afternoon?

Looking ahead we have the projects from our 4- and 5-year olds coming up. The projects are chances for the children to pursue an area of interest and to share their excitement with the rest of the children. So far we have seen wonderful experiments ranging from color mixing to homemade aquariums and play with textures and density. We are excited to see what else the children have in store for us!
