February Newsletter

During the month of February we will be continuing to  focus on winter as well as incorporating the colours of red and pink, the heart shape and healthy habits into the program.

In keeping with our aim not to focus on the commercialism of the holidays we will be keeping Valentines’s Day very low key.  We will be offering face painting and have a special treat at snack time on February 14th.  We ask that children do not bring Valentine cards for their friends.  Instead we will be focusing on the friendship aspect throughout the month.

January Newsletter

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!  We hope you all enjoyed the holidays and time with family and friends.

We would like to thank everyone who gave us gifts. They were really appreciated and we enjoyed all of the treats over the holidays.

Below are lots of pictures of different activities during the month of December.  I have divided them into the morning and afternoon groups.  Enjoy!



It was difficult to choose just one group photo with Santa!

We are having a difficult time believing that December is already here and Christmas is just around the corner!  Hoping you all enjoy the festivities that come with the season.

October Newsletter

The year has started very successfully.  Our returning students are happy to be back and our new children are settling in nicely.

As the weather will be changing soon can we request that children wear easy slip on rain boots (labelled with your child’s name) and if wanted they can change into indoor shoes/slippers.  We will still be going outside once the weather changes and fall settles in.  The children are enjoying the outdoor kitchen which has access to water and the ability to create “mud pies” so please dress children accordingly.

SNACK–Thank you to all parents who have been labelling containers.  Please DO NOT cut up fruit prior to preschool.  We find it gets mushy and brown and it not very appealing to the children when presented at snack time.

ABSENSES–If your child will be absent due to illness or vacation please inform the preschool by either email, or text 604-861-9198.

OCTOBER HAPPENINGS– Autumn has arrived and with it the changing seasons.  We will be incorporating the harvest, leaves and pumpkins into our program along with the fall colours and circle and oval shapes.

On Tuesday, October 30th we will have face painting and a special treat at snack time.




OUR TREE–We have “adopted ” a maple tree just outside the preschool yard.  The afternoon class will be observing in throughout the school year in relation to the changing seasons.  On our first observation the children commented that it..

—was kind of like an umbrella

—was 100 meters tall or at least as tall as daddy

—was cold and mossy

—that the leaves were green in the tree but brown and yellow on the ground.

Stay tuned!
