May 2016 Newsletter

Eeek! It looks like we are behind on our Newsletters. March's Newsletter was in paper form this year with updates and forms that went home to be filled out; we decided that our Summer Break will be the first two weeks of August. We started learning about Spring, planted seeds and enjoyed a beautiful day at the park with a picnic, an egg hunt and some really fun bunny inspired games. We made our own watercolors from scratch and we all had some time off for Spring Break. In April we celebrated Theresa's first Birthday, learned about the Letters M and N, made a ribbon wand, learned about the parts of a flower and had a fun trip the Academy of Science. Next month we will enjoy more of what Spring has to offer - even the rain!

February 2016 Newsletter


Important Dates to Remember: 

  • Monday, Feb. 8th - Closed for Lunar New Year
  • Monday, Feb 15th - Closed for President's Day
  • Tuesday, Feb 16th - Casper's 1st Birthday Party

We are really excited about our new students! Our Buddy, Casper, has already spent a few days with us and seems to be having no problem exploring our environment and getting to know his new friends. Although the kids are over the moon about the babies, we have been practicing some helpful ways to work around them and picking up ques on when they have had too many hugs and kisses. We have spoken about Anna and Mila moving on to Preschool and about our new friends being with us instead, however, we should expect some transition in our new group dynamic as well. You might have noticed that our project/lesson calendar is a bit different. We will be lighting up those little light bulbs within the babies while challenging the bigger kids as we have always done. Stay tuned and keep your eyes open for the new little faces!
