Thank you all for coming to our Get Acquainted Breakfast and for providing such healthy fruit for our morning. We hope you all enjoyed it and got to meet your child’s friends and families. It was a really fun morning!!
The children looked so precious in their costumes! Thank you to all the parents who provided the delicious treats, goody bags, and pumpkins for our party! Some of our learning this month included: what’s inside a pumpkin, how pumpkins grow, how to make a jack-o-lantern, spider facts, etc. We sharpened our Math skills by graphing pumpkin seeds, counting and number recognition using leaves, pumpkins and spiders, magic writing, matching games, and the favorite, mystery box.
Fall will be a very busy time at Tiny Tots as well! We will begin with our Nature Walk and signs of Fall. Activities will include sorting and categorizing leaves, fall songs, music and movement (Bear Hunt) and arts and crafts using different media, and special books, all emphasizing Fall changes. The older class will be discussing Harvesting, farming, and nocturnal animals. They will also be doing a little acting as well. The younger class will be discussing fall changes, music, color: yellow and shape: triangle. We will all be preparing for Thanksgiving and will be cooking a bit along with our themes. Every Thanksgiving we have a sharing fruit cup where each child brings in one piece of fruit to share with the class, a great tradition!
The children will be drawing names of a classmate to exchange a gift with during our Holiday Party in December. The gift should cost from $5 to $8 and be brought to school on the day of the party, wrapped, with the recipient’s name on it. Further information will follow regarding our Holiday Show.
Holiday Parties and Show: Dec. 20th and 21st . School will end at 1:00 those days. Details to follow. School will resume on Jan 2nd after our winter break.
Don’t forget to take advantage of our Extended-day program (MWF, 1pm class only) and the Lunch Bunch program (T/TH 11:30 class only). Extended Day and Lunch Bunch is $10 per stay.
Registration for children and their siblings, for the next school year, will begin on December 1st. You must register your child each year to reserve a spot for September. A $75.00 registration fee is required, (we will hold the deposit until after the holidays). The registration fee will secure that your child is registered for the upcoming school year. On January 2nd, open registration will begin for the public. Please pass the word on to your friends!
Please continue to label all outerwear as it is easier for us to help your child identify new clothing. The three day class is encouraged to be able to put on their own jackets and hats, as well as learning how to zipper and button to promote independence and also is an important step in getting ready for kindergarten. Also, be sure to bundle-up as we will continue to go out every day, weather permitting.
NO SCHOOL: Nov. 10th (Veteran’s Day) and Nov. 23rd and 24th (Thanksgiving break).
HOLIDAY PARTIES and SHOW: Wednesday, Dec 20th, and Thursday, Dec 21st. Details in December.
