For the month of August, we will have a great time with automobiles. We will sing fun songs such as Vroom Vroom, At the Car Wash and Monster Trucks. The infants will get head to toe dirty driving their vehicles through the mud. They will also get a little wet giving their vehicles a bubble bath at the car wash! The infants will enjoy being creative with our carboard box car that we will decorate and have fun driving. We will also have a popping and snapping good time rolling our vehicles over bubble wrap. We will read wonderful stories such as Felix the Fire Engine, Trucks, Shiny Things That Go. The infants will have lots of fun painting their vehicles different colours. We are driving away with August, Beep Beep!


For the month of August, the Toddler group will be learning all about camping and fishing. The toddler group is very interested in fish and playing in the water. Our sensory bin will be full of water and fish and turtles. For creative movement and music we will be singing some songs,12345 once I caught a fish alive and row row row your boat and moving like fish and turtles.This month we will be going to the water park and park. We will also be doing a craft with stained art Jellyfish to incorporate the learning about fish. So please remember parents don’t forget the children’s bathing suits!


In the month of August, the Preschool group will continue to focus on letter and number recognition in our book area. They have been enjoying it when I read to them lately, and they even request some interesting books such as “Stuck” by Oliver Jeffers, “Dragons Love Tacos” and “Mortimer”. Multiple times a day, we sing songs, play games, and have conversations about letters. Also, this month we will continue learn about maps and flags. We will draw, colour, and create beautiful maps, and use them to find treasures in our yard. I have put more focus on our art area and prepared lots of loose parts for the children to build and create with. The air is extremely hot this month. Please send your child with a hat, bug spray and sun screen as we will be playing outdoors daily.

School Age

For the month of August, the children will be exercising their muscles outside during nice weather with gross motor activities at the Centre, along with walks to the park, pavilion, library and water park to participate in some special activities. The children have been especially interested in games lately. They have taken a great interest in checkers and are striving to beat their Educators in friendly little quiet time tournaments. The Educator will be teaching the children some different card games as well. While we have been outside we have noticed a large number of different bugs. The children have caught quite a few already and are extremely curious about how they get there. This is leading to some research on the bugs life cycle and how they look close up. We will be continuing this research and expanding our bug knowledge this month.


L’été est finalement ici, nous sommes très heureux!!! Les enfants feront beaucoup d’activités à l’extérieur, par exemple; cueillir des fleurs, ramasser des roches, ensuite les peinturer, jouer dans le bac d’eau et faire des châteaux de sable. Ils iront pour des marches au parc de la paix pour voir toutes les fleurs, regarder l’eau et écouter les oiseaux chanter. Pendant l’été, les enfants auront aussi la chance d’aller chercher et observer différents types d’insectes dans la cour et pendant nos marches. Quand la température nous le permet, nous seront dehors, alors s’il vous plait envoyés votre enfant avec de la crème solaire, une serviette, un chapeau et un costume de bain pour jouer dans l’eau. Nous allons aux gymnases quand la température ne le permet pas.
