Infant Toddler

In November, we continued the theme of Fall , fallen and changing colour of leaves  etc. We also covered Remembrance Day and made related crafts to take home.

As we move into December the children will be making some adorable Christmas crafts and practicing for their parts in the Christmas Concert, Jingle Bells and others .Parents feel free to practice these songs with your children.

We will also continue the theme of Friendship over Christmas and New Year which is just the right time for giving, caring and sharing.

Daycare Montessori

We continue with the FALL theme and cover related activities eg dressing for fall, falling leaves etc. We also learnt about REMEMBRANCE DAY and made crafts to take home.

In November, we continued with the Fun Family Phonics program , covering the letters  E,F,G,H;  please encourage your children to sing the weekly letter song- eg this week is letter A- 'A' say a 'A' says a apple on the tree says a, a, a.  Every Wednesday will be show and tell; for show and tell we encourage children to bring objects that start with the sound of the week. We will continue the letters in January 2018.

Now we move into the busiest month of the year December, during this month the theme will be Christmas, Family and Friends. Children have already started practicing their songs for the Christmas Concert (Santa, Jingle Bell ,  O Canada, Rudolph ..) and festive songs in other languages too !!

We will also continue this year’s theme 'all about me and my friends’ – as we celebrate the holidays and emphasise caring and sharing which is particularly relevant at this time of the year.

Finally as we say goodbye to the year 2017, we would like to thank all the parents and children for their support and look forward with excitement to the New Year 2018.
