TODDLER TALES

 

Welcome back to school!  As we start the new year, we look forward to seeing new faces.  In September, the children will be welcomed back, carnival-style.  Games like "Bobbing for Nemo", crafts such as jester hats and a day for face painting!  We will also be reading stories like"Clifford's Manners" and learning to say "please" and "thank you".

 

October is the time for sweaters, pumpkins, and our favorite...Halloween!  The toddlers will collect leaves and talk about all the different colors.  We will make scary masks and sweet treats.  And it wouldn't be a good Halloween without costumes and pumpkin decorating!  We are looking forward to a great year!

PRESCHOOL 1

 

The Summer whizzed by with the children busy learning about the 4th of July, caring about the world around us, fun at the zoo and nursery rhymes and folktales.  We read many stories that lead to some exciting projects.

 

Cooler weather signals the start of Fall.  The trees will bring much color to our world.  New friends will color our class with  new personalities and friendships to be formed.  We will discover fun things as we get to know each other and our families.

PRESCHOOL 2

 

 

A new school year is beginning and I want to welcome all the children to the Preschool 2 class!

 

We will begin the month of September with "Friendship" week.  We will be making cookies to share with the other children in the Center.  The children will be learning how to share and cooperate with each other.  The letters of the month will be: A and B.  Activities will include making apple crisp and learning about Johnnie Appleseed.

 

The kitchen area will be changed into a bakery.  We will be decorating birthday cupcakes.  The children will be asked to bring in their favorite teddy bear for a Teddy Bear picnic.  

 

Looking ahead to October:
