Welcome to Kodomo No Ie!!!
I am pleased that this year's summer school was a huge success again and the children had so much fun even though there were many hot days over 100F.
The new school year has finally started. All the teachers and I are very excited to welcome our new students as well as continuing students to Kodomo No Ie, and their big smiles encourage us to give them our best.
We look forward to having countless fun moments with them during this school year, and also, we look forward to seeing them grow and sharing that joy with you all.
We will do our best to make the most of this school year!
I am pleased to welcome you and your child to another year of learning at Kodomo No Ie Preschool. Your child will have the opportunity to learn and grow as they participate in the many hands on experiences that are planned for the coming year. Pastor Samuel and I are both looking forward to participating in your child's education as we share Bible stories with the children each month. It is our hope and prayer that our preschool will be a blessing to you and your family.
Pastor Tom Kendall
