Welcome to the month of April! I want to start off by saying that our staff member Katie Treadwell has enrolled in an online Montessori course to fulfill her lead teacher position. She has a long term commitment with us. We are super excited that she has started this amazing adventure. On our professional day, four of us went to Newport Montessori School to take part in workshops that will help us better our teaching skills in the classroom. The high school students have been starting their training in Pro Solutions which is required by the Child Care Licensing Unit. We were recently visited by them and re certified for another three years to be a preschool program.
The weather, I think has turned the corner and we have no more snow on the playground. All of the snow gear can make its way home. Please take a look at our lost-n-found for extra mittens or socks.
This month we will start off by studying our teeth and dental hygiene. There are some fun works and art activities planned. From there we will look at different kinds of rocks. We will study the different kinds there are and look at sizes and shapes. After that we will talk about recycling and how we can take care of our earth.
Some of you might now that I have become a Usborne consultant. For those who don't know Usborne books, take a look at this website and see all of the different books available. Over 1800 books are offered ranging from birth through teenage years. I also have catalogs for you to look at that might be easier for some. I will be hosting a Facebook Party for the school on Wednesday, April 18th at 8PM. You will see a link on the school's Facebook page to join. If you were unable to make it our book fair this will be a great way to get some great books for the kiddos.
TBA- The class will visit Bara Dental to learn more about healthy dental hygiene.
