Infants

For the month of August, we will continue to enjoy the warmth of the summer. We will have fun with colourful coolwhip finger painting. We will play and make tracks with our cars/trucks in our edible mud pit. On the nice day we will load up our sensory table with ice cubes frozen with hidden items inside. We will also play with sticky balls and get gooey creating bird feeders!

Toddlers

For the month of July, the children enjoyed playing with water outside as well as attending the splashpad. We will continue with water activities outside on days that it is hot out for the month of August. The children enjoyed the bug sensory bin as well as the loose parts I have added to the room. l also added a tent to the room since it’s summer. We have been doing a lot of singing and dancing. We have had a very busy month!

Preschool

During the month of August, we will continue our special outings: going to the splash pad; Pavilion Play Days; visits to the Pine Street outreach program and story time at the Public Library. With the approach of school in a month we will work on school readiness skills: tracing of letters and numbers and learning what each is and sounding them out. I also want to work on scissor skills.

School Age

The SAC group will continue to enjoy daily outings to the park, waterfront, splash pad and library through the month of August. The group will spend a great deal of time outside enjoying the beautiful weather and taking advantage of our three-season gazebo to extend our program outside. We will spend lots of time playing cards and board games as well as creating special items using a variety of creative materials. We will celebrate the end of the summer program with a special surprise activity (details to follow).
