During March we will talk about spring, the change in weather and plants and flowers which appear at this time of the year. Watch the notice board for the spring poster appearing soon. We will of course also celebrate the above festivals as appropriate

 

 

Daycare Montessori

February was a busy month : we covered Chinese New Year , Valentine’s Day and BC Family Day and children did some wonderful displays for the classroom and to bring home.

In March, in addition to covering the above festivals ie St. Patrick ,  Nowroz and Holi , we will also talk about Spring and all the changes it brings.

 We will cover the life stages of a FROG and a BUTTERFLY  - watch out for changing posters in the classroom and please discuss with your children at home.

 We will also continue this year’s theme 'all about me and my friends’ –   recognizing and respecting different cultures and values . The children will have a party celebration to observe all the festivals on FRIDAY 22 MAR 2019 – parents are welcome to share their culture by sending in some food items and wear cultural clothing and perhaps we will end the day with a movie and popcorn.

As well we continue the Fun Family Phonics- we are   progressing quite well with the alphabet. The teacher will advise the children as to the weekly show and tell items on Wednesdays. With this, the children will also continue to learn writing skills. The teachers will also cover NUMBERS at age appropriate levels.

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

NOTE : REMINDERS TO ALL OUR PARENTS:

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.

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.
