TWOS in Town at Grace Preschool

0

2020 was a strange year, I think we can all agree, but 2021 is looking up – especially at Grace Preschool! January has been a special month at Grace. We were thrilled to welcome our newest group of little learners to the building.

The Twos class spent the first four months of the school year participating in socially-distanced, outdoor, school-sponsored play dates. Tuesday and Thursday mornings provided a time for our youngest students to feel comfortable at Grace. We have thought long and hard about what it must have been like for these children. Nothing has been quite normal for them. Playdates did not happen, babysitters were not on call for Friday nights, and, for most of them, Mom and Dad were with them all of the time. 

Parents did not have a normal start to sending their child to Preschool, either. Most of them were not able to come into the building for tours, so we knew that it might be difficult to go from a constant connection to a quick drop off at Preschool.  Weekly playdates seemed to be the best way to ease the transition for our Twos, as well as their caregivers!

In this season of giving, support An die Musik Live and the artists who bring you live music

0

Yes, it has been a difficult year, especially for musicians and performing artists. Yet, An die Musik Live refuses to be silent — we proudly pivoted early to find a way to continue producing the quality live performances you love.

And, just as importantly, we are giving world-class musicians who call the Baltimore area home the opportunity to perform. Overnight, most of them went from full calendars of performances, travel, and recording sessions to no work — a desperate position to find oneself in.

In the spirit of the holiday season, please consider showing your appreciation by making a Donation to Support An die Musik Live and Musicians who performed on our stage. Your generosity will help the musicians make ends meet, and will assist us with operating expenses and our desire to upgrade the hall and equipment to make the live stream experience even better!

Grant Funding Covers Total Cost for Select CCBC Continuing Education Programs

0

What a challenging year 2020 has been! While we have all seen socio-economic changes to the way we live, there are many who have also seen their long-time jobs disappear. There are those who experienced a cut in pay, while even other workers may have had their hours cut…sometimes cut in half.  It has forced many to look to a career change. For those who find themselves in this situation, CCBC is offering eight programs at no cost through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) grant.

For folks who’ve made the decision to switch careers, these programs are fully funded for those who meet the eligibility requirements.  They offer tuition, fees and books to any U.S. citizen who is a Maryland resident and whose job has been affected by COVID-19.

Keeping the Holiday Magic Alive at Grace Preschool

0

We’re all feeling it- the fatigue that comes with nine months of uncertainty due to COVID 19. With the holidays rapidly approaching, it’s easy to let the magic of the season slip away. 

The never ending feeling that you’re stuck in the movie, Groundhog Day, and the wish that everything would go back to normal- we’ve all felt it in one way or another.

The holidays don’t seem exactly the same, and finding ways to keep the celebrations alive has proven to be tricky.

There has been one surprising place that we’ve found the magic is still alive and well, full of sparkle, wonderment, creative energy, and celebration:

Grace Preschool Baltimore.

The faces entering the building each day- the giggles, the wide-eyed wonderment and excitement for what each day will hold, the anticipation of finishing that last gift to share with family members, and the never ending enthusiasm for Festive Fridays have helped to (as they say) “Make the season bright…”.
