June is here and that means that some of our children will be done for the summer before beginning a new adventure in kindergarten. Our wish for all our children is that they experience new friendships and opportunities for learning, while having fun. We have worked hard to encourage confidence and independence in the children and form meaningful relationships with them. Thank you, parents, for allowing us to be part of your child’s early years. It has been a pleasure.
The children had the opportunity to watch a pair of robins lay their eggs and raise their young. The pair occupied an existing nest in the corner of our school on a ledge. It was visible from the front window. The children experienced the life cycle of a bird firsthand. Each day, they watched the activity in the nest. For days the birds sat on the eggs, then we saw little beaks peek out over the side of the nest. Finally, we watched the robins feed their young. When we returned to school after the long weekend, the babies were gone. They had learned how to fly and had left the nest.
There are two gifts we should give our children. One is roots, and the other is wings.
We wish all our fathers and grandfathers a happy Father’s Day on June 16th.
Reminder, we will be closed for Canada Day on Monday, July 1st. Enjoy your long weekend!
