" A group of children noticed a pair of boots in the garbage. They continued to return to the boots and question why they were in there. We decided to retrieve them to take a closer look."

 

The children came up with different ideas on what to do with Miss Grace's boots. They decided to paint them .... wonder what they will come up with next!?

PA Day Fun

Friday March 2, 2018 the children from all groups had a fun PA Day! 

The Daycare group had a beach day. The kids pretended they were in sunny Hawaii and got to wear shorts, t-shirts and sandals and even brought their towels. We had a picnic lunch and teddy bear beach cupcakes. 

The JK/SK group had Olympic day to celebrate the ending of the Winter Olympics of 2018. The day was filled with different sports and got to spend both time outside and in the gym. 

The School Aged group had a building day. The kids got to build different items and got to take them home. The day ended with some birthday cake popcorn. 

Around the World 

The children pinned everywhere that they have been with their families and the teachers got to as well. It was fun seeing where everyone has been!! 

We would like to fill the map now with pictures of where we have been! If families have any photos of their adventures we will pin them up on our map.

Can you find 20 items?

The children made 20 foot prints which were placed all around the daycare. After doing that they wanted to find more 20 items. They found 10 pairs of boots and learned that 10 + 10 = 20! The children then found 20 little feet. Can we find more 20 items?

Thank you to all the families that came out and a special thank you to Mrs. Winchester for playing the piano! 

Friday December 15th was the Grinch Stole Christmas day! The children got to do some fun activities with the Grinch story which included art crafts, face painting and reading, as well as watching the Grinch! The children also got to eat a yummy Grinch heart.
