This Month’s News

Welcome back, Berry Patch families!  We hope you all had a wonderful spring break and a delightful Easter filled with lots of quality family time and many sweet memories.

March seems like a long time ago, but wow!  What an exciting month it was!  Children had a fabulous time learning about oceans of the earth, loved their field trip experiences at SeaLife MN, enjoyed some Mini Pretzels yoga, wrapped up their winter partnership with Science Made Fun, and created some amazing clay fish with KidCreate Studio – along with the dozens of other incredible activities and projects they did within their classrooms.  Hopefully, you have heard about a lot of these!

April has arrived and we eagerly anticipate the real arrival of springtime in Minnesota!  As we wait ever so patiently, here are some dates to note for this month.
