During the month of November, the first two weeks will consist of projects revolving around the letters G and H. We will be making guitars, giraffes, horses, and hearts! The last two weeks of November will bring us into doing projects based on Fall and Thanksgiving.
The children will be learning about the letters I and J in the beginning of December. This month is always fun with so much to do and read about the holidays!
The toddlers are growing so quickly and enjoying their time with us! Those who had limited verbal skills when they began with us are really expressing themselves now. We see such growth during these young years and we are having a lot of fun with them. They make us laugh all day long!

WE HAVE SLOTS OPEN IN OUR TODDLER ROOM, OUR PRE-SCHOOL ROOM (3 YEAR OLDS) AND OUR PRE-K ROOM (4 YEAR OLDS)!
PRESCHOOL (3 year olds)
The months of November and December will be packed with so many fun and exciting learning projects! We are continuing to practice our numbers 1 - 20 and letter recognition.
We will be focusing on a "giving" and "thankful" theme. We are also exploring community helpers such as firefighters, doctors, mail carriers and police officers. The holidays are always a busy time here at the Center. The children and teachers are looking forward to fun projects reflecting the holidays and winter!
PRE-K Room (4-5 year olds)
The children in the Pre-K room will be working on the letters G, T, and K along with may holiday projects during the months of November and December. Some of the activities planned will include projects about ghosts, gardens, giraffes, trees, tigers, turkeys, Thanksgiving, kites, kiwi, and ketchup. We always try to include a baking project based on one of the letters which the children enjoy since they can eat the results! After the New Year, the children will begin their personal journals.
The bulletin board in the front entryway of the Center will be decorated with art projects done by all the children in the Center. It is nice to see when parents and visitors come into the Center!
Our Pre-K curriculum is a nice mix of early education and free play activities. Our focus is to help prepare the children for Kindergarten by setting a solid base at an early age. Everyday we help them to develop their social awareness, fine and gross motor skills, and cognitive development.
Many visitors have come to see our programs in the last few months and are interested in how they can become a part of the Northern Dutchess Day Care community. Our children have fun and consider us family and we love that they do!
We thank the parents for their continued support and wish everyone a happy, happy, holiday!
