Kickstart Classroom Has Started Swim Lessons
June 27, 2022
Kickstart’s first week of summer camp was a success! For the first time our Kickstart Summer Camp program was able to offer swim lessons instructed at the YMCA in Concord, NH. The Aquatics Director, Mr. Alec and an additional instructor, Mr. Leon were exceptional at teaching our young learners this life skill. Both instructors were patient and kind and allowed for individual children to determine their own level of comfort with and around the water.
While White Birch has worked tirelessly to prepare these children for kindergarten, these lessons have prepared them to have fun in the water while being safe and following the rules.
Each child left their last swim lesson with a report card for families to review and to use as a resource if they choose to sign their child up for additional lessons.
With increased confidence across the board, these almost kindergarteners found a sense of accomplishment and pride as they navigated these waters.
Lincoln Brook Trail Hike
June 22nd, 2022
On Wednesday, June 22, a group of enthusiastic White Birch hikers took to the Lincoln Brook Trail just on the outskirts of the White Mountain National Forest. The Lincoln Brook Trail is absolutely gorgeous, and is highly recommended for anyone who simply would like to take a well-marked, easily navigated walk through the woods along a rushing river.
The weather was undoubtedly on their side, and the mosquitos must have been called to a more delicious smorgasbord elsewhere, as they were essentially nonexistent. A restorative lunch at the Woodstock Inn and Brewery topped off a memorable trip. As Horace stated, “That was a perfect day.”
More hikes are in the works, and we’d love to have you join us. Take charge of upping the enjoyment level by bringing a friend. Keep an eye on the latest weekly newsletter for updates.

Sand Donation for Our Playgrounds
May 5th, 2022
Thursday afternoon on April 22nd, Jeremiah Murdough, of Foster Materials, generously donated and delivered a dump truck full of sand needed for the Pre-K playground. This kind and thoughtful gesture helped us improve the general layout and foundation of one of our playgrounds as well as cover some growing roots. This act of kindness has served as a great, temporary solution that keeps our older students safe while enjoying the playground they love and utilize each day.
Additionally, when the students saw the mountain of sand, they were quick to offer help with the distribution process. Fully equipped with toy dump trucks, shovels, buckets, and excavators, they were hard at work playing in the new sand and enjoying every minute.
