Happy September and welcome to the new school year! During the month of September, Toddlers will talk about their favorite subject..THEMSELVES! "All About Me", we will learn about our favorite foods, colors, and stuffed animal. Toddlers will learn to identify different body parts, as well as identifying different emotions we feel, such as happy, sad, and mad.
In the month of October, Toddlers will focus on autumn. We will collect leaves of different colors and make hand print trees. In addition, we will experience Halloween by reading stories such as "The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin" and decorate pumpkins!

PRESCHOOL (3 year olds)
Summer is quickly fading and we will soon be feeling the cold of Fall. In spite of this, we welcome you to September!
We are excited about the start of the new school year. Our class welcomes some new friends to the preschool room. We will be learning to take turns, cooperate and work together to learn and play, and as we do this, we will discover what it means to be a friend and what friends do together.
The children will be bring home a project to do with their families. They will learn how shapes and colors brighten our world. We will focus on the star inside an apple and celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday (Sept. 26). The themes for the month are:
Shapes: Star and Circle
In October we will be learning about Fire Safety, Personal Safety, and Halloween
Shapes: Triangles, Rectangles
Colors: Black, Purple, Orange
