Special Activities

We have multiple enrichment opportunities for our Burbank students! We believe in educating the whole child and recognize the importance of providing children with unique opportunities to grow and learn. 

Field trips

We provide opportunities for our preschool classrooms to attend field trips two times a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.

In order for children to attend a field trip, their parents must sign a permission form. Teachers will distribute this form to parents.

Children are transported via a school bus with no safety harnesses. If a parent believes their child requires a safety harness while on the bus, we require the parent to notify the teacher in writing.   

First aid supplies and a notebook with emergency information accompany the teacher on each field trip. 

Visits to the Burbank Park

We are fortunate to have a large, beautiful park located adjacent to our school. Our teachers think of creative ways to extend classroom learning through visits to the park. We enjoy park visits such as a scavenger hunt, nature walk, and sledding. 

When your child’s teacher believes that the classroom is ready for a visit to the park, they will ask you to sign a walking field trip permission slip. Many times our park visits take place in the spring.
