For the month of January, the infants will have a lot of fun participating in activities such as playing in the sensory bin with birdseed to create their very own unique bird feeders to share with their feathery friends. We will also have a great time trying our best to stack super tall towers to knock down and repeat. We will test out our balance by following a colourful snowflake walk. We will get silly chasing, catching and passing balloons around the room and to our friends. We will make adorable one of a kind mittens with our handprint on them. The infants will enjoy mastering bingo dabbers to create bright colourful stars. The infants will get sticky fingers finger painting with whipped cream. We will also fill baggies with fluffy cold snow to squish, shape and watch in amazement as it slowly turns to water.


Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday and welcome back! For the month of January, we will be focusing on music; singing songs, using the musical Instruments and using different items to create new sounds. Before our Christmas break the toddlers enjoyed building towers so I will be adding different materials to the space to see what fun and creative things the children can make. I also noticed the children are super interested in driving the cars around the room so I will be creating a fun obstacle course to drive their cars in. Remember to dress the children warm for outdoor play!


For the month of January, the children will continue to explore new types of building materials. New supplies will be brought out this month that they can use. They have been enjoying building roads, towers and much more. We will also be investigating snow! We will bring snow into the classroom and melt it, allowing us to look at what is hidden inside it, along with other activities. We will also enjoy the snow outside so please dress your children according to the weather.

School Age

For the month of January, we will be enjoying our snowy days in only the best possible ways! The school age group will be tapping into their artistic sides by painting snowy trees while using many different tools such as cotton balls and pipe cleaners. With these creative artists, the possibilities are endless! The school age group will also be scientists for the month and will be conducting a “homemade snowflake” experiment. Goggles and lab coats on, things could get interesting! What’s a good time without treats? That’s why Rice Krispie snowman treats are on the menu this month! Snow is made out of marshmallows right? To top off the month, the school age group will have a chance to win some fun prizes from an exciting game of winter bingo! Happy New Year!
