Lyndhurst Preschool

The building blocks to your child's future.

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!

Welcome to Preschool

Dear Parents

Lyn and I have participated in many workshops through out the year and it has given us pause for thought.

Our goal is to build our program around the interests of the children. We have always ascribed to the value of play and learning through play while introducing a variety of concepts to the children.

This year we have decided to change our focus somewhat from themes, especially around the holidays, and base our curriculum on the four seasons. incorporating colours, shapes, and phonics with the changing seasons. An example would be emphasizing more on pumpkins, the colour orange and circles rather than jack-o-lanterns and Halloween.

We are looking forward to a new and exciting year with our new children and returning students!

Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child’s soul——Froebel
