Dear Parents,

As some of you noticed, we have a new staff member in the Baby Room. Mrs. Rose is an Elementary School teacher from the Philippines and has child care experience in Canada as well. She is a great addition to the Bambi family.

We would like to welcome some new friends: Grace, Eliza, and Jacob who joined the Baby Room, Toddler 1, and Toddler 2 this month.

Happy birthdays go out to Elliotte, Sutter, and Jaden.

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 on Friday for Show and Tell. We are continuing with our Library Program at the daycare. The librarian will come every Tuesday from 3-4pm starting March 14th.

Spring is slowly arriving and children still like to go outside and play. It can be very wet outside so please bring extra clothes, snow pants and boots for your children and dress them weather-appropriate.

This is the time to sign up your children who are going to be in kindergarten in September. We are driving children to St. Benedict, Nellie McClung, Cedarbrae, and Louis Riel. Please let Jane know which school your child will be attending.

The children love pets, so Toddler Room 1 and the Baby Room will be discussing different pets, what sounds they make, what they eat, and where they live.

Children in the Preschool Room started learning the Alphabet and letter recognition, as well as learning the different types of food groups this month.

St. Patricks Day is on March 17th, and to celebrate this we will be making some leprechauns, pots of gold, and rainbows. You can also dress your child up in green.

Dear Parents,

Happy Birthdays this month go out to Michael, Anders, and Sadie.

A lot of babies joined our program this month. Welcome to Alexie, Anders, Colin, Michael, and Maya. We are also joined by Borden and Avica in Toddler 1. Maverick is back to Toddler 2, and Menyamer will be joining our Preschool room.

December was a fun and fast paced month at Bambi. The children were busy practicing for the concert. We talked about how holidays are celebrated around the world as well as cold weather and animals that live in the forest. It was wonderful to have so many parents, grandparents, and siblings join us for our Christmas Concert. We had a wonderful time and hope you did as well. Thank you for all the kind Christmas cards and gifts, we really appreciated them.

In January, we will be reestablishing our routines as well as reviewing and reinforcing what we have already learned. Preschool children will continue to work on the alphabet and numbers. In Toddler 2 we are also working on self-help skills such as zipping our own coats and putting on our own hats and mittens. Please help by reinforcing this at home.

During this cold, snowy month we will be experiencing winter fun outside, so please bring outdoor necessities every day.
