A Note From Our Principal
Happy April! Now that spring has arrived, we’re looking forward to spending even more time exploring the outdoors. Taking advantage of the beautiful weather helps children learn and grow as they discover new things in their environment. Our teachers are planning outdoor games, lessons and picnics to celebrate spring. We can’t wait to share these activities with your child.
We are also preparing for our spring planting season. Our children are putting in their suggestions for our gardens. The infants have already requested a butterfly and hummingbird garden in one of our flower beds. We will also be growing vegetables and herbs. As a part of our Earth Day celebration, we would like to use recycled materials that are child friendly. To that end, we are asking for old rain boots, crocs, and old water bottles to assist us in making our gardens child friendly.
Week of the Young Child
Week of the Young Child, April 4th-8th, is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families. We have many fun activities planned for Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday and Family Friday. We will send more information via Links 2 Home soon.
Our classes will be celebrating Earth Day on Friday, April 22nd by releasing ladybugs. We plan to dress in black and red like ladybugs and learn as much as possible about our garden’s helpers. We can’t wait to share photos with you.
Parent Survey Reminder
Our enrolled parent survey closes April 15th. This survey provides the opportunity for you to give us feedback anonymously on our strengths and areas we can work on. Please let us know if you haven’t received it.
