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.

Dear Parents,

We hope you had a wonderful and restful summer break and are as excited about the upcoming school year as we are. We would like to welcome all of our returning children and parents, and extend a special greeting to the new families who are joining us for the first time. We are delighted to be your children’s teachers.

We are also welcoming Mrs. Melody who is back from maternity leave and will be working in Toddler Room 1.

Happy birthday to Victor, Isabelle, and Nixon this month.

We will be spending September learning about school, making new friends, learning about Fall, and most of all becoming comfortable in a room setting.

We strive to make Bambi a place where children feel supported and safe. We promote learning through play and feel very strongly about creating a place of immense social, emotional, and intellectual growth for children. We feel excited about creating a caring, and stimulating environment for this process. Our goal is to provide and experience at Bambi where children can grow both socially, and emotionally. We value open communication and appreciate you sharing your comments, questions, and suggestions with us.

Please don’t hesitate to call the daycare if you would like to check on how your child is doing.

Dear Parents,

We are proud to announce that we have been an accredited child care facility since 2009, meaning that we provide a level of excellence in child care that exceeds provincial licensing requirements.

We are excited that we have lots of new friends who joined our program this month. Welcome to Oliver, Maya, Nixon, Noah, Ashton, Aubrie, Amirah, Kohda, and Angelica.

Happy birthdays to Oliver, Maya, Nash, Adam, Laycin, and Rawleigh.

Summer is coming and flowers are blooming. All the children are playing outside and enjoying our early summer.

In June, we are planning to have more outdoor activities such as sandbox, and water play for our little friends. We will be focusing on hands-on experiences with the children such as: painting, gluing, cutting etc. We are also making special surprises for our Fathers. Last month, we finished our “library adventure”. A librarian came once a week to read us a story, play games, and finger plays.

This month we will say goodbye to all our kindergarten children who will be attending Grade 1. We will miss them dearly and wish them the best of luck. As we do every year, we will plant a tree in the front yard to commemorate the children who have graduated from our program this year.

Reminder: Picture Day is on June 21. The photographer will be taking individual photos, as well as classroom photos.

Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome Maddy, Laith, Novali and Sinopa to our program.

Happy birthday’s go out to Sierra, Evany, Kiera, Oliver.

It is hard to believe that it is only April, and we are having this amazing weather so we are starting to ask parents to bring sunhats and sunscreen for your children.

In March we learned all about flowers and colours, and even had a “green” day for St. Patrick. The children also celebrated Easter on Thursday the 24th and enjoyed an Easter Egg Hunt at the daycare and all the sweets that parents brought.

We are looking forward to April where we will be talking about welcoming Spring and birds. We will also be learning about Earth Day, saving energy, and recycling.

Lately we have been having problems with toys that children bring from home getting lost or broken. They also distract the children from planned activities, so please leave them at home or in the car as they should not be brought to the daycare.

Dear Parents,

The daycare will be closed on Friday March 25 as well as Monday March 28.

Spring is here! We will be going outside more often, but with the changing weather please don’t forget to send warm clothes for your child.

We would like to welcome Sutter and Jayden to the Baby Room, and we will be celebrating their birthday’s as they are both turning 1 this month.

Happy birthdays this month to Elliotte, Adeline, Arizona, and Lori.

We would like to welcome Mrs. Naouel who has been helping us in each room since February. She has previous experience in a child care setting and has her Child Development Assistant certification.

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. We will begin the month with one of our favorite authors, Dr. Seuss. We will read many Dr. Seuss stories, and celebrate his birthday!

Every year we have a program with the Southwood Public Library where a Librarian comes to the daycare, reads to the children, sings with them, and puts on some puppet shows. This will happen every Wednesday at 3pm.

March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day! We will have a lot of green activities, green clothing, and maybe a green snack.

The children will participate in art projects, activities, songs, poems, and a play. This month, we will search for signs of early spring and enjoy gentle stories about bunnies, chicks and colorful eggs.
