The warm weather has arrived. The children are enjoying all the springtime activities that come with the nice weather. Some of their favourites include riding bikes, drawing with chalk, blowing bubbles and we are finally able to play in the sandbox again. COVID regulations kept us from playing with sand for so long. Our mother Robin and her babies have also been of great interest. We have been learning a lot about how they make their nest, how they hatch , eat and learn to fly away. We noticed that when we came back from Victoria Day weekend they were gone. The children moved on quickly to their new interest, BUGS. We have only found a few potato bugs and worms so far, but a lot of the children are talking about ants in their houses. We hope to find more bugs to examine.
The smell of sunblock is a familiar smell now a days and is provided by Story Book. Also, a sun hat is a good idea. If you choose to send a hat with your child, please make sure it is labelled with your child’s name. The hats often ‘fall’ off their heads and it is easier to find the culprit if it has a name or initials inside.
Please be sure to give your summer vacation schedule to the staff soon. This helps us to staff accordingly.
Happy Father’s Day to all of our Dad’s and Grandpa’s, hope you have a fabulous day.
Just a reminder that Story Book will be closed, Friday July 1 for Canada Day.

This past month of May we have been so fortunate to enjoy some beautiful weather. The children have observed many animals and bugs around our play yard. We found a bird’s nest outside and watched as the mother bird brought her baby birds to life. This brought on a lot of conversations about birds and their life cycle. Some small group activities involved making birds out of shapes, a bird sensory bin, and painting bird houses to put out in our yard!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day and enjoyed their time spent with family. The children we so excited to share their Mother’s Day art work with you all!
As we jump into June the children are showing an interest in flowers and planting. They love to collect dandelions from outside and are paying attention to the change in scenery. We look forward to starting this month by learning all about plants and flowers. We hope to germinate our own seeds and do some planting!
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s and Grandpa’s, we hope you enjoy your day.
Just a reminder that we will be closed on Friday July 1st for Canada Day. Enjoy your day.
