March 1st, 2017

Dear Parents,

As some of you noticed, we have a new staff member in the Baby Room. Mrs. Rose is an Elementary School teacher from the Philippines and has child care experience in Canada as well. She is a great addition to the Bambi family.

We would like to welcome some new friends: Grace, Eliza, and Jacob who joined the Baby Room, Toddler 1, and Toddler 2 this month.

Happy birthdays go out to Elliotte, Sutter, and Jaden.

March is national reading month, so we will read some new stories and we invite the children to bring their favorite books so they can share them with all our friends on Friday for Show and Tell. We are continuing with our Library Program at the daycare. The librarian will come every Tuesday from 3-4pm starting March 14th.

Spring is slowly arriving and children still like to go outside and play. It can be very wet outside so please bring extra clothes, snow pants and boots for your children and dress them weather-appropriate.

This is the time to sign up your children who are going to be in kindergarten in September. We are driving children to St. Benedict, Nellie McClung, Cedarbrae, and Louis Riel. Please let Jane know which school your child will be attending.

The children love pets, so Toddler Room 1 and the Baby Room will be discussing different pets, what sounds they make, what they eat, and where they live.

Children in the Preschool Room started learning the Alphabet and letter recognition, as well as learning the different types of food groups this month.

St. Patricks Day is on March 17th, and to celebrate this we will be making some leprechauns, pots of gold, and rainbows. You can also dress your child up in green.

Dear Parents,

Happy Birthdays this month go out to Michael, Anders, and Sadie.

A lot of babies joined our program this month. Welcome to Alexie, Anders, Colin, Michael, and Maya. We are also joined by Borden and Avica in Toddler 1. Maverick is back to Toddler 2, and Menyamer will be joining our Preschool room.

December was a fun and fast paced month at Bambi. The children were busy practicing for the concert. We talked about how holidays are celebrated around the world as well as cold weather and animals that live in the forest. It was wonderful to have so many parents, grandparents, and siblings join us for our Christmas Concert. We had a wonderful time and hope you did as well. Thank you for all the kind Christmas cards and gifts, we really appreciated them.

In January, we will be reestablishing our routines as well as reviewing and reinforcing what we have already learned. Preschool children will continue to work on the alphabet and numbers. In Toddler 2 we are also working on self-help skills such as zipping our own coats and putting on our own hats and mittens. Please help by reinforcing this at home.

During this cold, snowy month we will be experiencing winter fun outside, so please bring outdoor necessities every day.

Dear Parents,

Please note our holiday hours:
Friday December 23 – 1/2 day (Daycare open until 12pm)
Monday December 26 – Daycare closed
Tuesday December 27 – Daycare closed

This month the children and teachers are very busy preparing for our Annual Christmas Party that will be held on Thursday December 8 @ 5pm in the Preschool Room. Children are very excited to show off their arts and crafts, as well as songs and dances that they learned. Please don’t forget to bring your child a wrapped present for Santa to give them. We hope to see you all there.

With the winter and flu season approaching, please keep your child home if they are not feeling well. If the child has fever, vomiting, diarrhea, allow 24 hours before returning to the daycare.

Dear Parents,

Note: The daycare will be closed on Friday November 11 for Remembrance Day. 

We would like to welcome Zoey and Amaya to our program.

Happy birthday to Maksim this month.

I hope you all had a great Halloween and a lot of fun Trick or Treating. A special thank you to all the families who brought in Halloween treats for all the children. It was a fun day and great to see everyone in their costumes (you can find the photos on our website in the Halloween 2016 gallery).

We had a wonderful October. Children were learning about Autumn and the changes that the season brings. We have watched the leaves change colors and fall from the trees. Children were collecting them for the compost, and set up lots of activities for children to explore colorful leaves through magnifying glasses, crafts, etc.

In November, we will talk to the children about remembering the fallen soldiers of the past who have made it possible for us to live freely in Canada. We will be talking about the significance of the Red Poppy that we wear, and why they will be asked for a moment of silence.

Lest we forget

Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome Max to our Baby Room and David to our Preschool Room. Happy Birthday to Sorcha, Max, Elliot and Kingston this month.

We are happy to see new children becoming familiar with room routines. They are practicing problem solving, language skills, and social/emotional skills through the power of play.

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we would like to say thank you to all our families for trusting us with your children. We feel very grateful to have a chance to be a part of your child’s life. It is a full season and children are learning about leaves changing colours, animals getting ready for winter, harvest, and Halloween.

With the approach of Halloween, we will create creepy (but fun) arts and crafts.

Our Halloween celebration will be on Monday October 31. Children are encouraged to wear simple, comfortable, and “friendly” costumes to the daycare, or you can bring the costume and we will help your child put it on. If you would like to bring some Halloween treats, please bring enough so we can share with everyone.
