CHRISTMAS BREAK (same as Burnaby School District)


(reopens Monday 6th January 2020)



Infant Toddler - 

In September, Theme was ‘New Friends’. With new children joining us , we found out more about each other , names , culture etc. The new children are getting get to know our routine and become familiar with the surroundings.

  "We are friends. Let's play together!!"....


In October ,within the overall theme of Fall, the children will be making wonderful art decorating the Infant Toddler room including hand print leaves in fall colours of red, orange, yellow and brown – see the  IT room poster! Parents can look forward to more fall art coming home! In addition, we will be enjoying Thanksgiving and Halloween activities!

We will also continue the theme of Friendship from September as new children continue to settle at the Centre.

Daycare Montessori

 September’s theme was 'all about me and my friends’ - the children made profiles about themselves to share with the class.  We welcomed our new friends who joined us and make ensure their experience at the Centre is comfortable and enjoyable.

Wednesdays will be show and tell during the course of the month.

The main theme for October will be FIVE SENSES AND FEELING THINGS. Please see the classroom board and our facebook page to see all the activities.

 We will also be talking about Thanksgiving and the family unit. Halloween is here – the children can look forward to pumpkin carving, crafts and a Halloween party where they can come dressed up in their costumes and enjoy special party food and (perhaps a movie, as well). Parents can look forward to artwork and crafts coming home during the month.

We will continue to work on the following class rules at the outset and parents please help us by encouraging the same at home. 

1. Please ensure your child has indoor shoes which they change into when they arrive at the Centre and which stay at the Centre when leaving.

2. Please have a change of clothes at the Centre , in case they are needed.

3. Please label all you food containers and let us know if any food needs to be heated (note also: as you are aware, ours is  a ‘NUT-FREE’ Centre.)

4. Please arrive on time especially if your child is attending the Montessori – this helps keep disruption to the minimum.

5. Please inform us immediately if there are any changes eg address, telephone, contacts.

6. Please ensure you look at your child’s cubby when you are leaving and take home their work etc.

7. Please inform us as early as possible (by 9am – would be great) if your child is not attending the Centre that day.

8. May we also suggest that you drop-off your child and leave soon thereafter. This makes the transition much easier and conducive to a good start to the day, both for the staff and the children.

 As is becoming common practice generally, the Centre is also moving towards a policy of NOT warming food using a microwave .  We would like to request parents to provide food which does not require warming or alternatively provide warm food in thermos containers. We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
