We can’t believe it’s March already! The month of February was filled with hearts, love, and talk about families. The infants really enjoyed using bingo dabbers, markers, and paint to create Valentine’s Day artwork for their loved ones. We hope that everyone enjoyed Family Day.

Spring is right around the corner and will be here before we know it. March break (March 11-15) is also approaching quickly, please let us know if there will be any changes to your child’s schedule. We continue to try to get outside in the yard and on our walks as much as possible. The babies have been really enjoying stopping at the park for a turn in the swing! Please continue to send weather appropriate clothing for outside time. We are really looking forward to the spring-like weather!

The infants have been really showing an interest in farm animals and the noises they make. We have added books about farm animals as well as farm animal toys to our shelves. We will also be singing songs about farm animals and adding pictures to our sight board at the infants’ eye level.

We will be celebrating St. Patrick’s day on Friday March 15th by wearing green. Just a reminder that we are also closed March 29th for Good Friday and April 1st  for Easter Monday. We hope that you enjoy the holiday with your families.

Spring is nearly here with fresh air and sunshine! Though we are sad that we didn’t have many opportunities to play in the snow this year, we are looking forward to the warmer weather which means more time outside for the babies. During our walks we have been looking for signs of Spring. The babies have enjoyed hearing the birds singing and seeing squirrels and bunnies roaming around. We are excited to bring this interest inside our classroom with spring sensory activities and artwork.

With some extra inside time, last month, the babies have been busy working on their gross motor skills using our foam climbing steps and ramps. They have also enjoyed riding around the classroom on the scooter cars and playing in the ball pit.

The babies have also experienced some finger painting over the past month. We started by exploring paint in a bag and then allowed them to feel the paint on their fingers. They enjoyed both of these activities and loved swirling their hands around on the paper. It is a great sensory experience for them, and we are excited to do it again.

Just a reminder we will be closed Friday March 29th and Monday April 1st for Easter. We hope you all enjoy the holiday!
