November Newsletter

Your children have responded really well to our new program.  In the opening circle they have learned to update the calendar and monitor the weather.  Later in the morning they are working on phonics and the alphabet.  The older children are mentoring their peers with recognition and beginning sounds of letters.

On Friday mornings we have been going on nature walks through our neighbourhood.  As your children learn to walk safely with partners we will explore a little farther.

As you are aware we kept Halloween activities to a minimum and focused on the colour orange, circles and ovals and pumpkins.  Your children were very interested in the life cycle of pumpkins and appeared to enjoy the end of Halloween with roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin muffins.  We kept the muffins till November 1 and they seemed more excited about that than the treats on Halloween day! Be sure to check out all the photos at the end of the newsletter.

We appreciate the parents encouraging their children to be independent in the morning as they arrive.  It is really paying off as your child easily goes about their routine with their snack, shoes and signing in.  Another reminder to send your child in boots everyday and to make sure they have indoor shoes that will stay at the preschool.

If anyone has access to paper, wood scraps, buttons or anything else you might think useful for the preschool and are willing to donate it would be much appreciated.

A friendly reminder to think creatively for snack as we are getting an abundance of crackers the last few weeks.

Children attending Lyndhurst Preschool who are eligible to attend preschool next year are automatically guaranteed a space in our program.  As we are already getting inquiries for next year please let us know if there are siblings wanting to register for our preschool as they will get priority.

More October Fun

May Newsletter

We will continue exploring “healthy habits” this month with the focus on nutrition.

A newsletter has been distributed with suggestions for snack.  We have been getting an abundance of cracker lately, especially fish crackers, and would like to ask parents to be a little more imaginative with snack choices.

This will lead into planting and gardening…the roots of our food.  If you have any extra small plant pots or seeds we would appreciate any donations.

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.

Announcing Changes at Lyndhurst Preschool

Due to the increased demand for an extended preschool session Lyndhurst Preschool will be operating a 3 day a week program on Tuesdays, Thursday sand Fridays for 3 ¼ hours from 9:15 to 12:30.  This program will accommodate 3 and 4 year old children.

Our current areas of the preschool program will be expanded in addition to extra calendar and phonics, nature walks, science and math activities and music and movement.

The cost of this program will be $350 a month with a registration fee of $75. The provincial government is currently offering an Affordable Child Care Benefit.  Families earning up to $111K may be eligible for these savings.  The website is gov.bc.ca/affordablechildcarebenefit.  This site also has an online estimator.

It has always been our priority to offer a quality program providing the children with an environment that creates the love of learning and we will endeavour to continue to do so.

If you know of any families who may be interested in our program please direct them to this website or have them call the preschool at 604 861 9198.

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.
