GALLERY: ‘We’ve got that Children’s School enthusiasm down in our hearts’

The Chautauqua Children’s School held its first open house of the 2015 season Friday for the 3s, 4s, 5s and Group One. Parents joined their children at the school for some fun and, as always, learning.

Clockwise from top left, students and parents paint a car — belonging to Blue Room Head Teacher John Denton — during the Open House. The paint is water-soluble and not permanent (and Denton is a very good sport). Parents and children make trains out of construction paper for the Open House. Week Three’s theme at Children’s School was “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” and drama specialist Tiffany Clementi led the students and their parents in a song about the various forms of transportation

Finally, the morning included a rousing rendition of the Children’s School theme song — you bet!
