Dear Parents:

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 children loved Santa Claus who came to the party and the clown. All the staff would like to thank parents for their nice Christmas gifts.

This year again, in each room, staff will be writing monthly observations about each child in the child’s individual book. If any of the parents would like to view their child’s observation book, please talk to staff.

Baby Room

Happy New Year to everyone! It was very nice to see all our babies and their families at the Christmas Party on December 10. Welcome Isaac to our room. He is adjusting well to our room routine. As a reminder, please send extra clothes for your children as we get dirty when we eat,  and doing some craft activities.

Most babies in this room are around 19 months old so we call it the younger Toddler Room. Mrs. Hilda is planning age appropriate activities for them.

Toddler Room 1 & 2

Happy New Year, and all the best for 2020. A big happy birthday goes out to Anders this month. We have been learning about Winter, Winter weather and animals. In January, we are planning to learn about parts of our body, learn new songs, games, and making lots of arts and crafts activities. Hopefully the weather will improve and we can make a snowman and discuss his different body parts. This month, we’ll be focusing on language development by reading stories and asking children different question. We will start working on letters of the alphabet and trying to teach children to recognize them. We will also be learning to count up to 10.

Preschool Room

We hope everybody had a nice Christmas holiday. This month we’ll be talking about snow. We will continue talking about the letters of the alphabet, and counting up to 20. The weather will be very cold this moth and we will be spending many days playing inside, so instead of water in the water table, we will bring snow from outside so children can put their gloves on and play with the snow. We will also have a few experiments where we put a glass of water in the freezer, and it will turn into ice. When the weather gets warmer, we would like to go outside, so please send all of your child’s outdoor gear so they can enjoy the fresh air.

Dear Parents,

The Daycare will be closed on November 11th for Remembrance Day.

We would like to welcome Davi to our Preschool Room.

Happy Birthday to Lena, Aria, Sebastian, and William 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.

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 have to go home to their families.

The Halloween parade was fun. We were happy to see all the different costumes. In November, we will be making Poppies for Remembrance Day, and talking about animals getting ready for Winter. We said goodbye to our teacher Mrs. Smita who recently moved. We will all miss her. Mrs. Joanne will be working with Mrs. Naouel in Toddler Room 1. October was a busy month with all our Fall activities. We made autumn trees and turkeys for Thanksgiving and pumpkins and ghosts for Halloween.

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

Dear Parents:

The daycare will be closed on September 2nd for Labour Day.

We welcome you and your child to Bambi Childcare. Each room has its own schedule, and staff will make changes to schedules on a daily basis to meet the needs of your children.

The staff encourage learning based on actual experience and participation. Children learn social and intellectual skills, and are allowed personal choices. Good self-help skills allow them to develop independence and self-esteem.

Baby Room

We would like to welcome our new friend Kinley to our room. In September our activities will be related to Fall. We will make crafts related to the theme and learn about our body parts.

We are trying to teach your children to clean up the toys after they play with them (put them on the shelf). They love the song “Clean up, Clean up…” They are also learning to be gentle with their friends and to say “please” and “thank you”.

Toddler Room 1

The summer is nearly over, and we will soon have leaves falling from the trees. We hope you had lots of summer fun. We would like to welcome some new children to our room,  Sarai, Lena, and Aria. The children are going to have lots of fun getting to know each other, and playing with all the toys. We will spend September learning our new routine, singing new songs, reading some fun books, and playing in our centers.

In the last week of August we learned about zoo animals. In September we will start talking about Fall, etc…

Please bring four or five pictures of your child (with family members etc.) so we can post them in the room.

Toddler Room 2

Happy Birthday to Jude and Emily this month.

We are hoping to have some more sunshine this month so we can keep spending time outside.

We will do some crafts this month about our pets, apples, and our names. We will read some new books like “I am Puppy” “101 Dalmatians”. We will also learn about insects and zoo animals.

If your child has a favorite book or CD that they would like to share with their class, feel free to bring it in and I can keep it in a safe place until we decide to read or listen to it.


Preschool Room

Good luck to our First Graders, Tami, Tim, Dorian, Andrea, Juan, Bodi, Owen, as well as Aubrey and Maverick. We will miss you a lot, please come back and visit. You can see how much the apple tree has grown since you planted it.

The summer is almost over. We had lots of fun while it lasted. In September, we will be focusing on our room routine, numbers, etc. We will also try to go outside as much as possible. Hopefully the weather warms up for us. The arts and crafts will be related to the season.
