Excellence in Early Learning Since 1981.

We incubated chicken eggs and six happy baby chicks hatched in the incubator at one of our teacher’s homes during the stay-at-home order.  She kept them for about a week and documented their growth, behavior, and sweet peeps, and helped keep all of the families updated.  Three chicks have been safely moved to their new forever home with a Grand Ave. school-age family and the other three have also been safely moved to their new home with a preschool family (pictured here)!  They will all be ready for outdoor play in their coops when they are about six weeks old.  Many thanks to the families who have “adopted” our baby chicks!  We love this life cycle project and will be doing it each year!
