North Shore Preschool Nursery School in Beverly MA
Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary is proud to introduce a nature preschool for 3-5 year olds located at Endicott Wildlife Sanctuary in Wenham. Recent studies confirm that children are spending less time engaged in vigorous outdoor play. The Ipswich River Nature Preschool provides young children on the North Shore with early educational experiences that fosters the development of the whole child and a lifelong relationship with nature.

 

Back to School
It is often challenging to find a backpack that is ‘cool’, just the right size for all of the school day necessities and fits correctly! Correct fit should be your first priority! Consider this: If a child carries his or her backpack for only 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon, they will carry it for 2 hours and 30 minutes per week.  There are 180 school days in a year.  That means the child would carry the backpack for 5,400 minutes or 90 hours per year.  It makes sense to choose the right backpack that fits well!
