Scribbles News

Book Nook Program

Book Nook is an afternoon enrichment program designed to enhance language development and promote emerging literacy by focusing on several prominent children’s authors and illustrators. Each month culminates with the children creating their own book based on the inspiration received from the authors and illustrators studied.

Holiday Giving

It has been a long standing tradition at Scribbles Preschool in Mountain Lakes to select worthy causes and charitable organizations to be the recipient of holiday gifts in lieu of gifts to staff. This year all donations went to the Morristown children’s grief center, Good Grief. It serves more than 250 grieving children a month. We are impressed with the many interactive workshops and programs Good Grief provides to help everyone deal with loss.
