Dear Parents,
Happy Father’s Day to all our loving dads. The children are excited to make Father’s Day presents.
This month we have lots of new friends joining Bambi. Mrs. Cherry is welcoming Tolu, and Maya into the baby room. Marcus is joining the other toddlers in Toddler Room 1. Welcome back Elisey to Toddler Room 2. Mrs. Olga and Mrs. Anita are welcoming Dara and Kiera to the Preschool Room.
We have two new staff members who joined our team, Mrs. Ji Young who holds her Child Development Supervisor Level, and Mrs. Anju (Child Development Worker). They will be helping in the Preschool and Baby Room.
Happy Birthday to Maya, Sebastien, McKenna, Lincoln, Aileen, Malcolm, Natasha, Rawleigh, and Charlise this month.
We are looking forward to summer vacation time, so please don’t forget to notify the daycare (1 month notice) if you are withdrawing your child for the summer.

Dear Parents,
We would like to welcome our teacher Melody back after her year long maternity leave, and her son Reuvan. She is working with Mrs. Tami in Toddler Room 2.
A big welcome to our new friends this month, Zaiden, Jacob, Lori, Mathew and Payton.
Happy birthday to Makayla, Marley, and Taylor this month.
The children are very excited to make Mother’s Day gifts. Children in the preschool room have learned lots of new songs for their moms. I am sure that all you moms will enjoy your presents and songs.
If you have any pants that your child is no longer wearing or don’t fit in anymore, we will gladly accept these donations. Children sometimes spill on themselves, get dirty, etc. and might need an extra change of pants at the daycare.
Please Note: The daycare will be closed on Monday May 19 for Victoria Day. We hope you all have a great long weekend.

Dear Parents,

I hope that everyone enjoyed our International Week that the staff and children took part in. We celebrated many cultures: Phillipines, Belarus, Ukraine, China, Nepal, Israel, etc.

Staff and parents prepared cultural items, pictures, and ethnic foods for everyone to enjoy. We would like to thank all the families for sharing their cultures with us. A big thank you to Alex Chai’s mom for making Chinese Dumplings for everyone as well as Brooklyn and Kenzo`s family for baking bread for all.

And of course, thank you to all the staff that made their cultural foods, brought items, and shared songs, music, and costumes with the children.

We would like to welcome Milena to Toddler Room 1. This month we will be celebrating Sierra, Nathan, William, and Cristian`s birthdays.

Thanks everyone for your generous food donations to the Calgary Food Bank. After reading the book Emma and The Food Bank, the children were inspired to help out.

Finally the weather is getting warm. We will be playing outside two times a day- in the morning and after nap. Please bring extra clothes in case the children get dirty.

This month the Preschool Room will be painting Easter eggs. Each child from the Preschool Room should bring 1 boiled egg by April 15th. If parents would like to bring any treats for Easter, we ask that you bring enough for the whole room.

Just a reminder: The daycare will be closed on Good Friday April 18th and Easter Monday April 21st.

Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome some new friends who joined our program this month. Imani and Kaiden joined the Baby Room, Elena and Solomiya joined Toddler Room 1, Marley and Justin joined Toddler Room 2. We are always happy to see new faces at Bambi.

Happy 1st Birthday to Colette, Thomas, and Imani, and Happy 3rd Birthday to Jaden this month.

This month we will be celebrating multiculturalism. We will teach the children about different music, costumes, and food.

On March 7, we will have a Hawaiian Day where children will be introduced to Hawaiian music, costumes, and food. We will be making Hawaiian pizzas, and colorful necklaces. If you would like to dress up your child with some elements from this culture, you are welcome to.

We are also planning to share our knowledge with the children about Israeli, Ukrainian, Russian, Filipino, Nepali cultures and our multicultural staff will be helping us with this.

If you have anything related to different cultures, you are welcome to share it with us and the children.

Finally, the warm weather has come. The children are so glad to play outside, so please dress your child appropriately.

We go through a lot of paper for our arts and crafts so if you can bring some recycled paper from your workplace, that would be greatly appreciated because our children are great artists and they like to draw.

Monday March 17th is St Patrick’s Day so please dress up your child in green.

Dear Parents:

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.

Yours Truly,
