This has been such a mild winter so far that the children have been able to go out at times! We will continue to venture out, weather permitting, so bundle up! They have also been very busy using the gym, and with our many theme weeks, they are happy and active! What a great group of children in all classes! We have seen so much growth in just a short time while at Tiny Tots!
The 3 Day class had a special visit from Jennifer Moriarty, a specialist at the Sheep Pasture. Jennifer presented a program called Adaptation Station, on how animals adapt in winter. This was a fantastic hands-on program that tied in nicely with our themes for January. We hope to have her back in the spring!
Our annual Valentine’s Day parties will be on Wednesday the 13th and Thursday the 14th. All children can bring Valentine Cards to school for their friends. Please have your child sign the back of the cards but do not put any names on the front envelopes. This will allow the children to pass out their cards on their own quickly. It is best if you send the cards in a zip lock bag marked with your child’s name on the front.
2-DAY: 20 children 3-DAY: 20 children Multi Age: 8 children (M/W and T/TH)
There will be a sign-up sheet on the doors across from the classroom with a list of items we need for our party. Please only one person’s name for each line to avoid too many treats.
Also, during the month of February, the children can bring in Kindness Hearts. These are hearts that we provide so when your child does a nice deed or act of kindness (i.e.: help clean up, help with younger siblings, shows a sign of affection), you can write it down on a heart and the children can bring them into school to share with their classmates. This is a great way to encourage your child to be especially nice during this month of love and get a pat on the back as well!
Parents in the 3-day class keep a watch out for a special letter from your child that will be arriving shortly before Valentine’s Day. They will be learning their addresses and phone numbers! Please let a teacher know which phone # is best for your child to learn.
PAJAMA DAY is always a fun day! Please send your children in their cozy pajamas on Feb 4th and 5h. Lots of fun activities are planned for this special day!
The 3 day class will be “traveling” during the end of Feb and early March. Countries will include Hawaii, Africa, Mexico, China, Italy and Ireland! If you have any experience with these countries and would like to share them with our class, please contact a teacher to plan it. We would love to have you!! Foods from the countries will tie in to our snack sign-up sheet. Again, talk to a teacher for any questions
REGISTRATION ALL classes at Tiny Tots are FULL! We are so excited that so many children are returning, as well as siblings! Tuition for September is due in April to secure your child’s spot. This will be necessary this year as we already have children on our waiting list. Thank you in advance!
