Creative World Aurora in Illinois has been chosen as the School of the Week! This school has an exceptional group of staff and fantastic families! We are so glad they are all part of the CW family! We asked them to share some information with us and the interview is below. Enjoy!
CWS: Where is CW Aurora and when did it open?
AUR: Our school opened in 2007 in the community of Aurora, which is 40 miles West of Chicago.
CWS: How many students and staff are currently at CW Aurora?
AUR: Our school has 252 students enrolled with 32 staff members.
CWS: What range of Educational Programs do you offer at your location?
AUR: We are equipped to care for Infants through School-Age children.
CWS: Besides your daily programs, do you have any other programs at your school?
AUR: Definitely! We offer some great extra programs to our students including: Piano Lessons, Happy Feet Soccer, Tumbling Tots, Spanish Class, and Martial Arts!
CWS: What events this fall are you looking forward to the most?
AUR: We are having PINK WEEK the week of 10/15-10/19! We are raising money to help STOMP OUT CANCER! The children will wear pink Thursday & Friday while we all WALK FOR THE CURE! The families have made donations that we will give to the Cancer Society! We served PINK cake to all of our families this week as well.
We are also celebrating the World Series by having Baseball Day where the children can wear their favorite baseball attire to school!
Our Pre-K and Kindergarteners always look forward to their fieldtrip to the Kuipers Farm Pumpkin Patch. This year they had fun on the hay ride, picking out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, taking a tour of the entire farm seeing animals, playing in the hay barn, riding the mini tractors and having a picnic lunch at the picnic tables.
CWS: What are the students’ favorite activities in the fall theme?
AUR: Apple Week! Taste testing, yummy apple snacks created by the children, apple activities such as: apple prints, apple math, apple sorting and playing in the Exploratorium in our pretend apple orchard/kitchen.
The children also enjoy talking about the changing of the leaves and creating really cool projects to make our school look like Autumn Season! They are all bringing leaves from home so we can see the difference in the changing leaves.
They really enjoy pumpkin activities as well. The children enjoy opening up the pumpkin to see what is inside and also painting and decorating the pumpkins! We use the pumpkins with the younger children as a sensory activity by feeling the inside and outside while the children work on their math skills by measuring & weighing the pumpkin.
CWS: What sets your school apart from other CW Schools?
AUR: What sets us apart from other schools is our Family Unity! We are so proud to be able to enjoy huge numbers of participants during our family events. Our families are very supportive not only in our activities but in the classrooms! We have amazing families that create a dynamic atmosphere! Their children are our gifts and we are so very grateful to be a part of their lives every day! Their smiles are contagious and make our school the happiest place to be!
WE LOVE CREATIVE WORLD!
