At the heart of every Kensington tradition is a meaningful experience, connecting families, children, and school.
Traditions play an important role in childhood, providing opportunities to bond and grow, creating memories that extend beyond the preschool years. Traditions at Kensington School are highly anticipated events celebrating the seasons, family, friends, and the magic of childhood.
Grandparents’ Day, Mom’s Day, and Dad’s Day
More than a visit, every Grandparent’s Day, Mom’s Day, and Dad’s Day provides an opportunity for children to proudly share their world at school. Grandparents participate with the children in events representative of a preschool day; Mom’s Day activities help the children pamper them with loving care; Dad’s Day is filled with rollicking activities that open a world of creativity and fun.
Family Thanksgiving Potluck
An annual and eagerly anticipated holiday event, our Family Thanksgiving Potlucks bring teachers, parents and children together to enjoy a meal together full of many types of cuisine.
Music is integral to Kensington School’s curriculum. Presented by children in the Preschool and older classrooms, our highly anticipated seasonal programs are not to be missed. The children love to share their musical voices with costumes and props and bring seasonal celebrations to life!
Kensington’s musical programs begin with a parent-child singalong for our youngest children and conclude with our scripted Kindergarten plays, creating age appropriate experiences to sing, dance, and dramatically perform with guidance and encouragement from their teachers. Children sequentially gain confidence and poise as they perform for their parent audiences over the years.
A magical musical highlight of the winter season for all PreKindergarten students, parents come together with staff the evening before to transform the school into a winter wonderland of lights and wonder. Such a surprise awaits the children upon entering the school the following day! A forest of glittering trees creates the perfect backdrop to their holiday pageant.
Under the guidance of their Spanish teacher, PreKindergarten and Kindergarten students share a colorful, musical, multicultural event highlighting all they have learned in their Spanish classes. Families then enjoy a Spanish potluck dinner together following the performance.
The Wizard of Oz Spring Program
Parents are invited to join in the celebration of the growth and accomplishments of each child as they move from Preschool to Kindergarten. Their presentation of The Wizard of Oz is truly a graduation tradition to be remembered!
