“Lots of fun in the summertime…” The hot sunny days are here, and the children are enjoying the sandbox, bikes and bubbles. We are looking forward to some water play with pails and paint brushes. Please send a hat for your child for sun protection.
Our outdoor classroom day was a big success. The focus was to spend as much time outside as possible and to connect with nature. The children went on a scavenger hunt looking for birds, pine cones, worms etc. They did extremely well at checking these items off their lists as we saw them. The children enjoyed painting rocks, eating snack and lunch outside. It was a great day!
The children had a chance to watch a family of robins build their nest, lay eggs and feed the babies lots and lots of worms. It was a wonderful learning opportunity to talk about life cycles. We also explored the life cycles of a frog and a butterfly. Over the weekend the baby birds learned to fly, and they were gone by Monday morning.
Just like our children; it’s wonderful watching them grow and learn but hard to watch them go. Big school is just around the corner. Thank you, parents, for letting us be part of your child’s early years. It is such a pleasure.
Happy Father’s Day to all our Dad’s and Grandpa’s, hope you have a great day!
Just a reminder that Story Book Early Learning Centre will be closed Monday July 2nd for Canada Day.
