Winter Sing and Solstice Celebration & Early Dismissal/No Aftercare

December 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Every year, at our Winter Sing and Solstice, our community comes together to celebrate the true meaning of the holidays with a joyous afternoon of winter carols (sung by the Children’s Houses) followed by unique, hand-crafted gift making in the classrooms (organized by the room parents). We hope you will join us for this special afternoon filled with friendship, creativity, and lots of fun. *Please see early dismissal schedule below.


The room parents have planned a plethora of crafts for families to make together on December 20th. They have made a list of craft supplies needed for this day. Please look at the list in the SignUpGenius link below to see if there is anything you can contribute. We encourage families to dig through their craft stashes for contributions as everything does not need to be bought new.
All contributions and volunteer hours count towards your community participation hours.

Winter Solstice Sign-up

Winter Sing & Solstice Schedule:

Please Note: The Huckleberry Cottage will not participate in the Sing and Solstice due to their nap schedule. They will have an early dismissal from their classroom at 3:00pm.

  • After the winter sing, parents/guardians are invited to accompany their children back to the classrooms for gift making. All of the classrooms (except for napping Huckleberry) are open to all, but we ask that you begin your creative afternoon in your child’s home classroom before making your way around to the rest.
  • Children who visit other classrooms MUST be accompanied by their parents or designated adult guardian. Thank you!
