Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome Maxim, Bodhi, Gweneth, Livvy, and Yasim to the daycare this month.

Happy birthdays to Gweneth, Livvy, Maya, Alexie, Iyla, Hayden, and Isabelle.

Please note: Our daycare will be closed Monday February 19 for Family Day.

We know that parents are busy and have a limited amount of free time; as a result we are proposing a parent committee communicate via email regarding any questions or suggestions in order to improve your child’s experience in our program. If you would like to join our parent committee, please contact us directly at with the subject line “parent committee”.

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. Staff in each room are completing observations of different aspects and skills of each child on a monthly basis. If parents have not yet asked to see the observations, please feel free to speak to any staff member.

We have lots of exciting things happening in our Toddler Rooms. 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 Wednesday February 14. Parents are welcome to bring cards or treats for the children in the room.  Please ask staff for the list of children in the group for the Valentines cards.

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.

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the new year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. December was action packed with preparation for Christmas. Our Christmas party on December 8 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 nice Christmas gifts.

This year again in each room, staff is 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.

Happy birthday to Brandon, Michael, Anders, Sadie, Jacob, Eliza, and Aubree this month.

For those of you that aren’t aware, we have an online parent committee. We discuss different issues that are related to our program. This month we will be reviewing our parent handbook, focusing on our policies and procedures. Any ideas and suggestions are welcome. We would like to invite everyone who is interested, to email: with Parent Committee as the subject line. If you don’t have a parent handbook handy, please ask Mrs. Jane.
