French Day Care Program


For the month of November, the infants will have fun exploring with sensory activities. We will create many discovery baskets of colours, textures and sounds. We will have fun playing with our pom pom cup drop. We will play peek a boo with our hide and find picture board. We will also enjoy stacking and re-stacking fun picture puzzles. Please provide warm winter outdoor clothing as the colder weather is on its way, thank you.


For the month of November, we are learning our colours. We will make fall crafts. We will also learn some fall songs. Since we are heading into colder weather please have your child dress accordingly since we will be going outside everyday.


For the month of November, the Preschool program will be focusing on “All About Me” activities. As a way to personalize our room, we will also be making a picture wall to show off all of our preschool friends and all of the fun things we have been up to. We have some exciting crafts planned for this month, including an “All About Me” rainbow; a fun and colourful activity to get to know one another. Everything from hair and eye colour to birthdays to favourite food, colours, books and animals! We will also be spending some time enjoying the book, “I Like Myself!” which encourages children to appreciate everything about themselves, inside and out! We will also take advantage of any sunny days to continue our outdoor adventures and walks, collecting treasures such as leaves, rocks and pine cones for future crafts.

School Age

What would you do after school if the weather is cool and you’re feeling like you’ve got ants in your pants? We love to run and play outside! The SAC children are interested in group games, dancing, reading and imaginative play. They are constantly throwing Frisbees and tossing balls, playing tag and digging in the dirt. Not a day goes by where we don’t get messy, but messy is fun. This month, we will be focusing on activities that get our hearts pumping (like tag), promote fine motor skills (Lego building) healthy relationships and anti-bullying. Please remember to have your child dressed in warm clothes as winter is coming and we will be outdoors daily.
