Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome Edward, John, and Scarlett to our program.

Happy birthdays are going out to Edward, Max, Ryder, Maksim, Allison, Emmett, and Jessica this month.

Winter is coming, so please remember to send your child to daycare with mittens, hats, boots, because children still like to play outside.

The Halloween parade was fun. We were happy to see all the different costumes. Thank you to all the parents who brought Halloween treats for the children.

October was a busy month with all our Fall activities. We made autumn trees, turkeys for Thanksgiving, and the most fun experience was when we decorated our room for Halloween.

In November, we will be making Poppies for Remembrance Day and learning about why we wear them. Some of our crafts will be related to hibernation and we will discuss how different animals get ready for Winter.

Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome Kingston, Mandipaishe, and Saveliy to our daycare.

Happy birthday to William, Kingston, and Noelloni this month.

October is already here, and the weather can change, so please send your child to the daycare dressed appropriately.

Just a reminder, the daycare will be closed on Thanksgiving (October 12).

Our Halloween Party will be on October 30, so if you don’t want your child to be dressed in the morning, you can bring the costume to the daycare, and the teacher will assist the child in putting on their costume. If you would like to bring some candies, please bring enough so we can share with everyone. We usually do our Halloween Costume Parade in each room,  and children 3 years and older will having their parade around the block (weather permitting).

In October we will be busy learning about weather changes. We will be collecting some leaves, and making a class collage. We will be reading stories about Thanksgiving Holidays, and learning new songs. This will be a busy month filled with Spooky Halloween Crafts, and Thanksgiving Stories.

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend!

We would like to say farewell to our teachers Mrs. Melody and Mrs. Anita. Mrs. Melody went on maternity leave and Mrs. Anita went back to her home country Nepal. We wish them well.

As you all noticed, Mrs. Alina is back and she will be replacing Mrs. Melody as the assistant director. She will be happy to assist you.

This is the last month for many of our friends who will be starting grade one in September. We are very sad to see them go and we are also happy to welcome some new children to our daycare. Leo, Eliza, Jessica, Maksim, Oliver, and Tristen will be joining us this month.

Birthday wishes are going out to Leo, Holden, Adelina.

At the end of the month we will be forming our school driving schedules, so please inform me if you already know your child’s school hours.

This month we are started our Library Program for children ages 3-6. The librarian from Southwood Library left some books at our daycare so each child can choose a book, take it home, and share it with their parents. This will be happening every Wednesday. Children are very excited to share new books with their parents.

On April 14, Brooke’s mom, a city of calgary Police Officer, will come in the morning and talk to the children about her job, as well as show off her uniform.
