What we've been up to... September was filled with music, fort-making, outside enjoyment, food, and superheroes! We said “goodbye” to some children moving on to the older classroom, and “hello” to new friends joining our fun group. Self-care skills such as dressing and washing our hands correctly was a focus as new children joined preschool and long sleeves started getting wet! Help us reinforce these skills by demonstrating/coaching hand washing and allowing your child to put their own jacket on with the “FLIP TRICK”. See if they can start their own zippers!

Where we are going… Welcome Autumn! The children are noticing the changes outdoors, from the cooler weather to the colorful leaves. We will be going on nature walks and collecting treasures to investigate. We will use natural objects to use during math, science and art activities. Small group projects will continue as Brooke and Mandy work on assessments of the children for this semester’s conferences. The children have seemed interested in literacy and math activities lately, and we will explore these topics during this month as well.

Events and Reminders: Center closed for Staff Development Days 10/18 and 10/19.

Parent Notes:

Thank you!!!Thank you to all families that participated during our exploration of music the last few weeks. It was a very rich experience for the children.
Again, anytime you’d like to come in and share ANYTHING or read to the class, let us know. A strong home/school connection helps children know their place in the world and feel safe and excited to explore learning.

LABEL, LABEL, LABEL!!Please remember to label your children’s outer wear. Much appreciated.
