March 2013 Newsletter

Babies taking care of babies.

Spring is almost here! Hurray! It's time to make sure that your little one has sunscreen in their bag, a nice brimmed sun hat to keep the sun out of their eyes, an extra pair of clothes and maybe a pair of sandals you don't mind them hopping into the kiddie pool with. As the weather warms up we will be getting out more often, waking up our bodies from these long hibernating days spent inside with the warmth from the heater. I have to say that Spring is my favorite season in San Francisco. It's warm, sunny and beautiful - a big tease with the expectation that Summer will be just as nice if not even warmer, which I find is not true- one of the best times of the year spent with the kids.

Estrella, working up confidence and visiting the kids.
February came and went just like that. We learned about Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day, had a great time at the playground, enjoyed many days of music and spent a lot of time working on letters and acting out different animals and verbs.

Important Dates to Remember:
  • March 25th-29th-Closed for Spring Break
  • Wednesday, March 27th-Sienna's 2nd Birthday
Summer Break: As you may know, summer break dates are not yet planned for the calendar. In recent years, I have offered year round care with a day here or there during the summer as a break. This year I would really like a 2 week break, either one in July and August or just two weeks in a row. Please let me know if you have been thinking about vacations plans so that I can make Summer Break around yours ; )
