December was action packed with preparation for Christmas. Our Christmas party, on December 11, was well attended. It was so good to see that so many extended family members were able to attend. I hope everybody enjoyed our performances. All the kids loved Santa Claus and were happy to receive presents that parents bought for them. The children really enjoyed watching Bonzee the Clown, and are still talking about his jokes and tricks. All the staff would like to thank parents for the nice Christmas gifts and cards.
As some of you may have noticed, Mrs. Cherry is on maternity leave, so Mrs. Smita will be working with your babies. She is experienced as she also has a six month old of her own.
We would also like to welcome back Mrs. Alina who will be helping us as required.
We would like to welcome Kayla and Raiden to our program.
Happy birthdays to Kayla, Elena, Nevan, Mary, Daniel this month.
We have also been learning about Winter, Winter weather and animals.
This month we’ll be talking about snow. We will continue talking about the letters of the alphabet, and counting up to 20. The weather was very cold and we spent many days playing inside, so instead of water in the water table, we will bring snow from outside so children can put their gloves on and play with the snow. We also had a few experiments where we put a glass of water in the freezer, and it turned into ice. When the weather gets warmer, we would like to go outside, so please send all of your child’s outdoor gear so they can enjoy the fresh air.
