Dear Parents,

The daycare will be closed Friday April 19th and Monday April 22nd for Good Friday and Easter Monday.

We would like to welcome Hugo and Eddie to our program.

Happy Birthday this month to Carter, Quinn, Bennett, and Mason.

This month children are very excited to learn about the Easter holidays: reading stories, singing songs, and will be making baskets for their Easter Egg Hunt which will be on Thursday April 18th.

We will continue to explore multicultural holidays as well as learn about our environment because we will be celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd. Children will learn how Earth Day started and what we all need to do to protect the Earth. Children will be making lots of arts and crafts using recycled materials.

We have tons of other fun stuff planned this month.

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Reuben, Bennett, Jameson and William who joined our program this month.

We would like to wish a Happy Birthday to Gabby, Michael, and Sutter.

Our new teacher Mrs. Nora joined us this month. She will be working with Mrs. Hilda in the Baby Room.

In February we had fun celebrating Valentine’s day and those who we love, as well as learning about the importance of family and friendship. As we move into the month of March, we will be shifting our focus to St. Patrick’s day and catching those sneaky little leprechauns. St. Patricks Day is on March 17th, and to celebrate this, we will make all sorts of crafts using the color green. Each week we will talk about a different colour of the rainbow, how rainbows are formed, and different types of weather, such as wind, rain, thunder, and lightning.

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.

Dear Parents,

The daycare will be closed on February 18th for the Family Day Long Weekend.

We would like to welcome Benjamin, Jovan, and Jayden to our program this month.

February is a big month for birthdays – Happy birthday to Karter, Benjamin, Livvy, Gweneth, Maya, Owen, Alexie, Iyla.

It is such a pleasure to watch every child in our program learn and grow. It is a joy to see them explore and develop new skills. Our programming is still based upon the observations and child interests.

We have lots of exciting things happening in our Baby Room. Children are starting to walk and we are hearing some words like Mamma, Dadda. Some of them are become very independent and are trying to feed themselves using a spoon.

In Toddle Room 1, we have seen a big improvement in many of the children’s self help skills (cleaning up, dressing themselves, potty training) over the course of this month. It has been so much fun to share in their excitement over their accomplishments. If your toddler is ready for toilet training, please talk to staff about this transition.

We had a very fun January doing many crafts and activities related to winter. This month, our focus will be on diversity, families, and how they are different from one another. Children in the Preschool Room will have a Valentine’s Day Party on Thursday February 14. Parents are welcome to bring cards or treats for the children in the room.

Our outdoor time is very important, so we would like to ask you to bring warm clothes with your child every day as we spend long periods of time outside playing and exploring.

We also welcome any donations of extra pants as we can use them for children who are starting the potty training process.

Dear Parents:

We would like to welcome Ruby to our Baby Room.

Happy Birthdays to Sadie, Tim, Michael, and Jacob this month.

We had so much fun in December learning about different holidays like Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, etc. We made so many holiday decorations and we also discussed how some families don’t celebrate the holidays, but just celebrate being with their families.

December was action packed with preparation for Christmas. Our Christmas party, on December 10, 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 who came to the party.

All the staff would like to thank parents for the nice Christmas gifts and delicious sweets throughout the month of December.

It is now 2019, a brand new year! We look forward to the good times ahead.

Each room has plans for a lot of exciting new themes and learning experiences this month.
