Dear Parents,

Welcome to Nevan who is joining Toddler Room 1 this month.

Happy birthday to Saaili, Adelina, Helli, Hudson and Alexia!

August is the last month for some of our friends who will be starting Grade 1 in September. We will be very sad to see them leave but they will have lots of fun at school. We hope that Jada, Jayden, and Hudson come visit us in the future.

The school year is fast approaching, and some of the Preschool Room children will be starting kindergarten in September. Just a reminder to provide us with their child’s AM/PM class schedule as soon as they become available so we can plan and adjust our driving times.

We decided to start our Show N Share day every Friday in the Toddler and Preschool Room. Children can bring their favorite item (toy, book, etc) to share with their friends.

Dear Parents,

This month, the older children from the Preschool Room went to Stampede Breakfast at the Southland Leisure Centre. They enjoyed the breakfast and entertainment. They saw a lot of animals in the petting zoo such as pigs, goats, sheep, rabbits, etc. They learned how to line dance and made cowboy boot crafts.

We are welcoming 2 new teachers to our program, Mrs. Zaineb and Mrs. Dina. The baby room is also welcoming Uzoma and Kyra. Toddler Room 2 is happy to have Chizaram and Alvin join them.

Happy Birthday to Declyn, Adalyn, Chizaram, and Alex.

The weather is getting really hot and we would like the children to have water fun outside. We ask parents from Toddler Room 2 and the Preschool Room to bring bathing suits and a towel for your child (parents will be notified when the water day will be held).

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.
