Welcome to August!

Wow, I can’t believe we are heading to the end of summer. I’m glad we were able to do lots of fun outdoor/summer fun. Big changes for the daycare this fall with donations of art supplies, learning help, and  lots of motor skills play!

School

Preschool

It’s school time again! I will be sending home a copy of child’s preschool planner in July so you have option to laminate and put them in a binder to use at home as well. These are the planners that we will be using and will be adding activities to them weekly.

We also will be having a teacher that will be teaching them online weekly as well!

School will be starting same time as big kids school. If you would like to bring any school supplies, kids always have fun having their own school box, etc. Totally volunteer! I have school supplies as well.

Art Class

Art class will be moved to Wednesdays. Our daycare in general will be starting to theme around art in learning and playing.

Sensory Learning

We are adding more sensory learning activities too.

Backpacks

As I always suggest, a backpack would be very convenient to bring daily to send home papers and projects! 😉

Openings

Unexpected opening came up, so please tell your coworkers I have openings! Please let them know we do preschool!
