Special Programs and Events

Music and Movement

We offer a range of enrichment opportunities and events throughout the year. Each classroom is provided with music and movement experiences for the children. Miss Mary Jane from Creative Movement visits weekly for the preschool classrooms. Miss Maggie Gambill from Let’s Play Music visits weekly for music with the toddler classrooms and every other week for the preschool classrooms.

Field Trips

When it is safe to do so, preschool classrooms typically offer 2-4 field trips per year. Past field trips have included visits to Peacock Road Farm, Potter Park Zoo, Impression 5 Science Museum, Tasty Twist, Patriarch Park, East Lansing Public Library, and the MSU Children’s Garden. Parents/guardians are encouraged and welcome to participate in classroom field trips. Parent/guardian volunteers must complete a criminal background check through fingerprinting and are always accompanied with a staff member.

Special Events

Eastminster hosts two evening potlucks – Fall Festival and Spring Fling – as opportunities for families to meet and share a meal with their student’s classmates. We also offer a Children’s Festival in May that is open to the community and walk in the MSU Homecoming Parade.
