KinderFrogs, Starpoint School children participate in egg hunt

Grandparents sat in miniature chairs, playing with sand and blocks as they got a first hand experience of what it is like to be a pre-k student at the KinderFrogs School, Thursday morning.

KinderFrogs and the Starpoint School at TCU dedicates a day for grandparents to learn about and experience a day at school for their grandchildren, said Vivian Unger, administrative assistant to the KinderFrogs school.

The KinderFrogs School provides breakfast to the approximately 75 grandparents who then went through the daily events of their grand children’s class and ended the day by helping them find eggs in the annual Easter egg hunt.

The TCU Staff Assembly’s Community Service Committee has bought the eggs and candy, stuffed them, and hid them for the passed three or four years, said Betty Nance, administrative assistant of the Department of Modern Languages.

The participation in grandparents’ day grows every year and the Starpoint School moved their activities across the street to the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center, said Unger.
