Fall Weather & Outside Play

The weather has certainly been changing the last few weeks, fall is here! Despite the cooler air and the rain, we are still making time to play outside! Thank you to everyone who has brought rainboots for their child to leave at daycare. Dont forget to check your child's locker to make sure he/she has extra clothes.

Preschool -All About Me & Apple Activities

Preschool has started at daycare and is going very well! The kids seem to enjoy our morning and afternoon school activities! We had a lot of fun during our All About Me week. We have been exploring Apples this last week and will continue until the end of the month. We are working on the letters A,B,C ; Circle and the color Red.

We have also started to work on journals with the preschool kids. The goal of the journal exercises are to familiarize the kids with holding a writing utensil, to let them scribble and hope that we make progress throughout the year. We have been working on drawing lines, tracing shapes and coloring in our journals! Each month we will work on a different journal. Journals will be sent home at the end of the month. We are asking that you provide your child with a pencil box (to store writing supplies in) and an eight count set of washable markers. The markers can be fine tip or broad tip, or a combination of both. Please bring these items to school by Monday, October 12th. Please let me know if you are unable to bring these items in. Thanks so much!
