Today, families from our JUMPSTART! Therapeutic Playgroup met for their “taste buddies” session. This group created a positive sensory food environment for food exploration through touch, smell, and taste. Children had the opportunity to experience a variety of textures and flavors during a fun “cooking” activity. This class also incorporated social skills, sequencing and following directions. Thank you to all families for coming out to share in the fun! For more information about CPNJ’s JUMPSTART! Therapeutic Playgroup, or to register for future sessions, contact Hetty Kintiroglou at (973)740-2353 or via email at Hkintiroglou@cpnj.org!
Last Wednesday, Horizon Elementary School held its annual Fall Festival. Students welcomed their families, and guests from our JUMPSTART! Therapeutic Playgroup to join in on some Halloween-themed fun. Complete with pony rides, a petting farm, pumpkin picking and fun Halloween game stations; students and our guests had a blast under the gleaming fall sun. Thank you to all of our guests and volunteers for joining Horizon Elementary in celebrating this fantastic fall day!
