February was a month to focus on friendships, culture, and the differences we all share. Each classroom recognized and created activities focused on these topics. It was great to see the celebrations of friends and loved ones. The children were particularly excited about our yearly Valentine's day festivities. It was a nice time to build on their friendships and remind one another the value of love and kindness. The children were so happy to give valentines out to their friends and share in good food. It is a great learning opportunity for the children to learn the value of giving.
Our enrichment program after 3:00pm is an important part of each day. Every day the children are exposed to art, music, cooking, computers and Spanish. Some of this month’s activities included Japanese art, music from the Asian culture, Spanish words for friendship greetings, making friendship trail mix and focusing on math, language and reading using the computers. These lessons are a critical part of learning and developing the necessary skills to succeed in everyday life.
In March we are looking forward to celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday along with his impact on early literacy. We will also be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with festivities and green materials! Our children will be studying Africa and the Savanna. They will be discussing the animal habitats and what makes them special. March is also the month that re-enrollment packets are due and spring photos are taken. We will be providing childcare during Spring Break the last week of March. Emails will be sent with a registration form and reminders will be sent accordingly. We look forward to another creative month!
