Willow Tree School

February Newsletter

Our new year is already off to a great start. We found that our students came back from the long Christmas break fulfilled, energized and ready to get back to what they do best ... laugh, learn and live. We are seeing a spirited quest for new challenges and bigger adventures. Many of the children are maturing right before eyes and producing some very impressive problem solving, more elaborate communication and are generally happy to be at school with their friends and rich materials.

This month, we will focus on the human body, our physical and emotional health and we will discuss some of the things we can do to stay healthy. We will enjoy a visit from a local dentist who will explain the importance of dental health and the many ways we can make sure that we take good care of our teeth. This particular dentist has an amazing presentation designed especially for preschoolers. She is engaging and brings some great props with her. It is sure to be fun and informative!
