The View from Here: A New Day at Magic Carpet Preschool

Yesterday we talked about the extensive flood damage at the Magic Carpet Preschool and the extraordinary lengths teachers, parents, alumni, and friends went to rebuild and restock supplies at the school.  Well, today is a happy day:  Students showed up this morning for their first day back to the Barton Street location.  Our photographer, Bob Rush, was on the scene to see the smiling faces and happy reunions in  the beautifully refurbished school.  We are sure there are going to be many new preschool memories made with Miss Penny and her staff.  And looking at the photos of the children in their once nearly destroyed school leaves us all with only one word:  hope.

  1. This is fantastic news. Wesley loved having Magic Carpet at the church but realize being back in their preschool home makes everyone happy. I’m sure drop offs and pick ups are also a lot easier. The pictures show a bright, stimulating eduactional area where children go play, learn and grow. Best wishes for a wonderful future to Miss Penny, all the teachers and first and foremost the sweet, sweet children.
