Welcome back and Happy New Year from Toddler 2! We can hardly believe 2023 has already begun. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. We are looking forward to all the fun the new year has in store for us. We have already begun welcoming some new friends from the infant room into our class as well as saying goodbye and wishing lots of luck to those moving up to the preschool room.
We spent the month of December learning all about Christmas and the holidays. The toddlers worked very hard on creating special presents to gift to their loved ones, we hope you enjoyed them. They also spent time participating in other creative and sensory based activities such as making ornaments for the classroom tree, cookies for Santa and more! Playing pin the nose on Rudolph, decorating the felt Frosty and finding Elfie (our elf on the shelf) were a few of our favourite games at circle.
During the month of January, we look forward to learning all about winter, Arctic animals, experiencing the snow and more! After seeing the first snowfall and reading the book ‘Frosty The Snowman,’ snow and winter have become popular topics of interest. We have lots of crafts, sensory bins, songs, and games planned!
We thank you for bringing labeled and appropriate winter gear for your little one. We also ask that you continue to practice putting on snowsuits with your little one to promote self-help skills as this makes for an easier transition going outside.
We hope you have a great year!
Please note there will be some staffing changes starting this month, the teachers in Toddler #2 will now be Miss Chloe, Miss Kennedy, Mrs. Brei, and Mrs. Celene.
