June Newsletter

Insects, butterflies and other creepy crawlers….we have been busy learning about what is an insect and what is not.  The children have enjoyed insects in the water, insects at the play dough table, insects in the sand, at story time and in many songs.  We hope many parents have been learning the song “Flea Fly Mosquito” which is a class favourite!

As of the end of this school year we will no longer have a land line at the preschool.  We are finding that we do not receive many calls as many parents are texting or emailing on our personal phones and home computers.    Please continue to do so as this will be our only form of contact as of June 22.  You can reach Lyn at 604 421-4737 on her home land line or Vicki at 604 861 9198 on her cell by text, email or phone.


We still have a few spots in all of our fall programs.  If you know of anyone who might be interested please give them our contact information or direct them to our website for additional information.

March Newsletter

Goodbye February with its crazy weather.  Thanks for all of your concern and understanding with the windy weather and tree tumbling!  Let’s hope the snow will subside to some lovely spring days now that March is here.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT–Recently we have both been taking professional development course on a variety of topics.  One common thread is the value of learning through play.  We have been reevaluating the program and allowing more time for learning games and facilitating learning by creating the right atmosphere.

Our function is to structure the learning material in such a way that it captures and holds the interest and attention of each child, making learning a pleasurable and lasting experience.  The child is encouraged to participate in a variety of “hands on” learning activities which lend themselves to interaction and exploration, which then will  lead to the acquisition of knowledge.

BOOTS–As it is often wet and rainy in the spring, please dress your child appropriately for outdoor play as we are required by licensing to have go outside each day.  Please label boots with your child’s name and send indoor shoes if you wish.

PICTURES– You should be receiving proofs this week.  Group photos will be displayed in the windows by the dismissal doors.  Please have photo orders in by Friday, March 16th.  Orders should be returned to you after spring break (April)

SPRING BREAK–Lyndhurst Preschool will follow the spring break schedule of the Burnaby school district and will be closed from March 19th and reopen on Tuesday, April 3rd.

YEAR END DATES–The last day of classes will be Thursday, June 21st.  This will also be Graduation Day for all fours going to kindergarten.  Lyndhurst Preschool will have our Year End Picnic on Friday, June 22nd.  More information will be forth coming closer to the dates.

REGISTRATION– We have space in our September programs.  Please send anyone interested to our website or ask them to give us a call at the preschool for more information.  604 421 6113
