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.
