Infant and Toddler

Children had lots of fun creating and painting Artwork for Halloween in the month of October in addition to all the Thanksgiving Day activities. Please enjoy the poster board and the creative artwork spread out in the both the rooms.  The children looked wonderful in their costumes ( thank you parents) and so did the teachers! The children had treats during the day.

 This month the Infant Toddlers will continue creating lovely fall art decor such as the fall leaves in a multitude of fall colours like: orange, red, yellow and brown.  Please watch the poster board in the IT rooms reflect our changing weather. Children will also ‘make’ poppies for Remembrance Day.

We will also continue the theme of Friendship from the beginning of the year as new children begin to settle at the Centre and celebrate DIVERSITY in our community.

Daycare Montessori

The children had a busy month in October with lots of artwork and painting for Thanksgiving and Halloween , ending  with a Halloween day  party with lots of treats. Activites such as pumpkin carving which the children participated in , made for fun time at the Centre. This month the children will continue working   with the theme of fall , changing weather and winter animals and hibernation.  The children will also discuss briefly about -Remembrance Day making decorative poppies to commemorate the day. .
This month ,  we will focus on preparing for our Christmas Concert and will continue the Fun Family Phonics program,

We will also continue this year’s theme 'all about me and my friends’ – as we celebrate DIVERSITY , exploring and embracing different cultures and traditions. ____________________________________________________________________________________


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 good start to the day, both for the staff and the children.

9.     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.
