Our Jellyperson Logo– It was drawn by an almost three year-old child at C5 as part of her interest in sea creatures during an ocean project that the children chose to study and represent in various media.
They worked on the project each day for weeks; created a 6×12 foot three-dimensional mural of the ocean replete with creatures and water levels; discovered the abyss; studied dozens of ocean animals and learned their names; and, had visitors to the classroom with their full equipment, including an open water swimmer, a surfer, and a dry-suit scuba diver. The children drew many of the sea creatures, constructed prototype jellyfish and other animals from various materials, and made a 6×6 foot multimedia thank you collage of the ocean for the visitors that included many of the elements that they learned over the previous few weeks and representations of the visitors to the classroom in it.
We see the logo as indicative of the power of childrens ability to explore and express themselves in great depth and breadth and in ways that can often exceed adult expectations.
The logo also conveys our respect for the wide range of diversity of the children and families in our infant, toddler, preschool, pre-k program. It also represents our roots in the San Francisco Bay area, including all of the maritime elements!
We believe that there is no better way to simply and powerfully represent C5 Childrens School.
C5 uses the Jellyperson log on all of our official business and program communications and on clothing and other products that are available for purchase by families and friends of C5 in support of our vision, values, and goals for optimal learning and development for children, families, community members, and early childhood professionals everywhere.
