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.

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.

Dear Parents,

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.

Yours Truly,

Jane Pevzner
