We would like to welcome Adelina and Thomas to our daycare. We are happy to see them learn and grow. We would also like to introduce you to our new staff members, Mrs. Anita and Mrs. Marjorie. They are very excited to work with your children.
Happy birthday to Sophie and Molly this month.
Just a reminder, our daycare will be closed on Monday February 17, 2014 for Family Day.
We still like to go outside every day, so please dress your child appropriately. We will be continuing our “me and my family” projects in all the rooms, so please send 4 or 5 pictures of your child if you haven’t done this yet.
Our Preschool Room Valentines party will be on Friday, February 14. If you would like to send some Valentines treats and cards to the daycare, you are welcome. Please ask Olga for the list of children in the group for the Valentines cards.

Welcome to the new year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We had another successful Christmas Concert. The children worked very hard practicing their songs and dances for you. I would like to thank all the parents for the Christmas cards and gifts.
We would like to welcome Adam, Zoey, Jaxson, Lukus, and Rawleigh to the centre. We are excited to watch them learn and grow.
Happy Birthday to Kenzo, Mary, and Nicole this month.
Please check the notes posted at the entrance. Their purpose is to display general information about licensing, calendar, fees, health issues, as well as notices that come from the community and affiliated agencies.
For information on programming, please take a look at the program posted in each of the rooms and feel free to ask staff about it.
The Baby Room and Toddler Room has a white board with daily information about children.
With the wet weather, please remember to remove your shoes at the front entrance. Ensure your child has at least 2 sets of extra clothes in their cubby at all times. Don’t forget to label all of your children’s clothes so they don’t get mixed up or lost.

Once again, we will remind you to please bring your children to the daycare no later than 9:30AM so they can fully enjoy our program. Preschool room children are going on a field trip to the fire station on Monday the 16th. Our program has an open door policy, which means that parents are always welcome to visit the daycare any time. If you like to volunteer on any field trips or just come and read stories or share some of your cultural experiences with the children, we will be happy to have you.
Our staff members see your children learn and grow. By completing observations, they can identify developmental milestones in your child’s life. This helps us develop programs that cater to your child’s learning abilities. All these observations are located in a binder in your child’s room.

We have created an online parent committee. So far only 3 parents are participating. We would like to invite everyone who is interested, to email: email@example.com with Parent Committee as the subject line.
This Friday, our staff completed part of the professional workshops about observation and planning for different age groups.
Spring is slowly arriving and some days it is very wet outside, but children still like to go and play. So please bring extra clothes, snow pants and boots for your child. As some of you already noticed, we have a new staff member who joined our team:
Kawyar Mohammed has her level 1 certificate and she is working in Toddler Room 1 and the Baby Room.
She is enjoying working with your children.
Michelle from the Southwood Public Library is visiting our center every second Friday to read stories to your children and to teach them some nursery rhymes.
