The children are having a lot of fun outdoors enjoying picnic lunches, water play, and all the sunshine. We are discovering lots of bugs and listening for different sounds...birds, frogs, airplanes.
We are looking forward to the new children coming to our room!
Enjoy your summer and we'll connect again in September!

We had a lot of fun at our Child Recognition Day in June. Our art show was a hit and we had fun outdoors enjoying the fresh air and refreshments. Mom's and Dad's, uncles, aunts, and grandparents joined us and a good time was had by all!
We've been spending a lot of time on the playground and we even discovered a turtle making a hole up on our hill to lay her eggs. We are doing a lot of painting projects and having fun decorating our classroom and front hall bulletin board.
Picnics, water play, bubbles, and popsicle treats are in store during the summer months! YEA!!!

Our Child Recognition Day in June was bittersweet. It was fun having our Center wide art show and many family members joined us. However, we said goodbye to children who are off to Kindergarten in the Fall. Some of these children we have had at our Center since they were toddlers and it was sad to see them leave us. They have been part of the Northern Dutchess family for a long time. We wish them all the best as they are our little stars (as are all the children). They brought many smiles and much laughter to our class and the Center as a whole. We were on an adventure together and we all saw it through. We love all of you!
We started off our summer with all the classes and our school age campers having a wonderful BBQ together. It was a beautiful day and the children did an art project together and played outdoors. It was great to see the older children interact with the younger ones and assisting them if they needed help.
We had a visitor come in recently, Jessie Murphy who owns Fins, Tails, Scales. He gave an expedition on snakes, frogs, and turtles. All the classes participated and it was fun to see the reaction of the children as they held the snakes and experienced the feel of them!
We are looking forward to good summer fun! See you in September!!
