As we hire age appropriate entertainment  the Friday morning class will attend on Thursday,  December 21 with the three year old class.

Lyndhurst Preschool will re open on Tuesday, January 9th.

SANTA GIFTS —  As we invite Santa to visit on our Christmas celebration days we ask that each parent provide a small gift for your child.  This needs to be wrapped, labelled (with your child’s name) and discreetly handed in to the preschool as soon as possible and no later than December 15th.  

If your child is unable to attend the celebrations please let the preschool know so we can send the relevant items home early.

NEW STAFF MEMBER– In our 3 year old class we have hired a support worker, Stacey, to assist a child with extra needs.  Stacey has all the necessary qualifications for this position and to work in our centre.

COMMUNICABLE DISEASES NOTIFICATION —  At any time that we have information to share regarding health issues (i.e. lice, chicken pox or other infectious diseases) we will notify you by putting a notice on the doors used at dismissal.

NOVEMBER HAPPENINGS.

We have enjoyed all of the “Brown Bear” books by Eric Carle series and ended the month with a visit with Jenn from Cameron library.

The afternoon class enjoyed their “Apple Marshmallow” teeth, brushing away sugar bugs and catching all our germs, along with learning the differences between healthy snacks and treats.

Hopefully all of our healthy habits the children have learned during the month of November will continue over the holiday season.

December will be filled with Christmas crafts, songs, stories and games.

 

November Newsletter

Halloween trickery is over, the sunny days of early fall appear to be behind us and November is in full swing!

The four year class enjoyed exploring their senses and now we are learning about healthy habits.

The three year old class will be exploring bears through the Eric Carle books.  This will be incorporated through out the preschool centre with art, games, sensory bins, manipulatives and maybe even a few furry friends.

We will be changing our housekeeping corner into a doctor’s office.  Beware that the band aids your child may come home with are probably for show.  If any parent works in the medical field and have any extra supplies that could be donated to the preschool we would be very grateful.

INDEPENDANCE–We appreciate the parents allowing the children to come into the preschool by themselves.  It gives them the opportunity to be independent and this in turn a good feeling of self worth.  We have noticed tremendous growth already.

FRIDAY MORNING CLASS

THREE YEAR OLD CLASS

 

FOUR YEAR OLD CLASS

Sorry we are having technical difficulties with uploading photos of the Halloween activities.  Check back at a later date.

 

Sensory Fun

The four year old class are learning all about their five senses.  We thought we would share the sensory fun by inviting all classes to enjoy the sensation of playing and “finger painting” with shaving cream.

Below are pictures of the classes.  As you can see the Friday morning class was not as adventurous!

October Newsletter

Welcome Autumn!!

The three year old class appear to be managing the routines well and we are hoping to begin a theme around the “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” books soon.

The four year old class are discovering their 5 senses.  So far we have covered our sense of sight and hearing.  Next will be our sense of smell.

HALLOWEEN

Halloween will be a low key event.  This year we will be touching on Halloween lightly in the week prior to October 31st with songs, games and crafts.  On Tuesday, Oct 31st we will have special snack and face painting to celebrate during the morning class. The four year old class may wear costumes in the afternoon if they choose.  Please keep in mind that it gets warm in the preschool and we would not want to loose any accessories during class time.

Please sign up for special snack once during the school year.  No individual snack is required this day.  Sign up sheets will be posted the week before Halloween.

FALL CLOTHING

As the weather is surely supposed to change a lot of children will be coming in boots and other accessories.  Please label all clothing as many have the same items and some may not even recognize their own!  Children may change into indoor shoes or slippers if they choose when wearing boots.

 

ABSENSES

We appreciate a phone call or message when your child will be absent from preschool due to illness, holiday or appointments.  You many leave a message at the school at 604-421-6113 or send an email to vicki@lyndhurstpreschool.com.

SCHOLASTIC

We will be sending out Scholastic Book Club magazines for anyone interested in purchasing low cost children’s books.  We appreciate when parents purchase books as it allows Lyndhurst Preschool to purchase books and supplies through a bonus point system.
