The children from Baby Fox Academy received a special visit from Apex Motor Club today. As part of the summer curriculum, the preschoolers have been learning about different modes of transportation.
“We like to invite our community members to be involved in our preschool program,” said owner and director Laurie McCracken. “It’s very important for our children to see all the different things that make our community great. It’s also important to give our community members the opportunity to have an impact on the children in our program, to show them all the different possibilities there are for their future.”
The preschoolers squealed in excitement upon seeing the cars parked just outside their preschool’s front door this morning. The children were able to sit inside the various models. They peered in awe when being shown one car’s engine and giggled when they heard the engines roar.
“Bringing experiences like this to children in our program is one of my favorite parts of running a preschool,” McCracken said. “Watching the wonderment and inquisition that these children exhibit in learning new things is amazing.”
Baby Fox Academy is a state-licensed, in-home preschool in operation three years. It is owned and operated by Laurie and Matt McCracken. Laurie is a former elementary school teacher of over 20 years and holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary ed and a master’s in early literacy.
