English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


During the month of June, the infants have enjoyed fun walks, lots of playtime and creating Father’s Day keepsakes. We hope to enjoy a lot more outdoor play time in July as the bugs will hopefully be less intense. We will have a bubble table to create bubbles of all sizes, splash and have fun with. We will build sand castles, digging and building roads for our cars and trucks. The infants will have a little outdoor tea party and enjoy a yummy cold summer treat. We will continue to read fun and colourful books and sing songs about summer.


We had a really great month! We attended the Father’s Day bbq, we made crafts for the dads. I changed the room around and brought the slide in the room. The children are really enjoying the slide. We did a lot of different activities outside from colouring, blowing bubbles, drawing on the sidewalk with chalk, playing in the sand and playing with babies outside. Next month, I plan on having a lot of water activities outside since July will be hot outside.


During the month of July, we will be doing a lot of outside activities such as taking the sprinklers out and letting the children run through; sand castle building; outdoor water play; etc. We will bring paint outside and let the children paint in nature. Our summer outings will include: visiting the EarlyON outreach program on Pine Street; attending Pavilion Play Days at the waterfront and joining in Story Time at the Public Library.

School Age

Starting in March, I began preparing daily writing and reading activities for the children to complete this summer. Every day we will be having one hour of writing because I believe that if the children continue to practice, they will forget less come September, and they will have an extra boost compared to their classmates at school. Who doesn’t love a bit of knowledge? As always, we will have daily outings to the park, waterfront, splash pad, or library, but it all depends on how hot it is. Its supposed to be extremely hot this summer. This spring, the children helped me to create a schedule to follow every day. This will help organize our day as well as help the parents know where exactly we are when picking up or dropping of their children.
