English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


Spring is in the air! For the month of March we are going to celebrate the change in season. To showcase Spring, we will be making our very own colourful tissue paper flowers. We will also be learning about Spring by singing songs such as “Spring is Here!” and reading books such as, “It’s Spring!” and “The Hungry Caterpillar.” The first day of Spring is Tuesday, March 20th, and to ring in the bright, cheery, and colourful season, we will wear yellow! St. Patrick’s Day is also in the month of March which we will celebrate on Friday, March 16th. On this day we will wear green and have tons of fun making “hand shamrocks” and playing in pots of gold!


The month of March means warmer weather, sunny days and lots of outdoor play! For St.Patrick’s Day we will be having a “Green Day” and will be painting rainbows followed by a treasure hunt for the pot of gold in the snow! This year Easter is the 1st of April so we will be having our Easter party and activities the last week of March. Every day is a learning day in the toddler room and this month we will be exploring different mediums with our arts and crafts centre and will continue learning colours, shapes, numbers, animals and nursery rhymes.


March, Moon, Mom, Many. In the month of March we will be talking about words that start with M.
We have lots of creative ideas planned this month. Painting, coloring, and messy art just to name a few. We will also be building structures with bamboo blocks, logs, Jenga and 2x4s of various lengths. We also have beading activities for the children to enjoy and practice their fine motor skills. This month, we will be focusing on circle time, reading, and group activities and games, and taking turns since these are important skills to have before going to kindergarten. Most of the Preschool children are starting school in 7 months! As the weather gets warmer, (hopefully) please remember to continue dressing your children in their coats and boots if needed. We will be playing outside daily (even in the rain and snow) so the children must be prepared.
