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.

Dear Parents,

Please note the daycare will be closed on December 24th, 25th, 26th, 31st, and January 1st. We will re-open on January 2nd.

 We would like to welcome Liam to our Toddler Room this month.

Happy birthdays to Vanessa, Borden and Andrea!

December is a busy month where we like to talk about families, love, giving, because we are lucky to have families and staff from different cultures. We’re going to to talk about Christmas celebrations, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, learn and appreciate our likeness and differences.  We’re hoping that some of our families can help us bring their cultural traditions to the daycare.

This month the children and teachers are very busy preparing for our Annual Christmas Party that will be held on Monday December 10th @ 4:15 pm in the Preschool Room. Children are very excited to show off their arts and crafts, as well as songs and dances that they learned. Please don’t forget to bring your child a wrapped present for Santa to give them. We hope to see you all there.

With the winter and flu season approaching, please keep your child home if they are not feeling well. If the child has fever, vomiting, diarrhea, allow 24 hours before returning to the daycare.

Dear Parents,

The daycare will be open on Monday November 12th.

We would like to welcome Dylan and Andrea to our program. Happy birthday to Sophia this month.

Flu season is coming, so if your child has flu-like symptoms, (vomiting, fever, diarrhea, cough, etc.) please keep your child at home until they feel better. Don’t forget to notify the daycare if your child is not feeling well, and will be absent.

With the bad weather approaching and traffic getting worse, please give yourself extra time for the commute as the daycare closes at 6:00, and the teachers would like to go home on time. The weather is still nice enough for children to play outside, so make sure your child has snow pants, hats, gloves, boots at the daycare.

The month of October was very fun and enjoyable. Children were very happy to celebrate Halloween. They learned new songs and finger plays. On October 31, we had our Halloween party. Children and some staff dressed up in nice costumes. Everyone was dancing and having fun.

This month, children will be learning about Remembrance Day, poppies, hibernation, and how different animals are getting ready for Winter.
