Dear Parents and Caregivers:
Wow – how time flies – it’s hard to believe that we’re already into October! We’ve had a great September – it’s been wonderful for us to get to know our new children and families, and welcome back our returning children and families! As we enter October we will begin our Alphabet Circle which will focus on colour and letter recognition through a variety of activities. October is going to be a busy month we’re looking forward to Thanksgiving, Halloween and so much more!
