For the month of October, the infants will enjoy the colours of the fall. We will play with a squishy pumpkin. We will enjoy outside time and go for nature walks and look at all the different coloured leaves as well as the Fall/Halloween decorations. We will have fun making pumpkin string alongs. We will make gooey creations with orange and yellow play doh. The infants will explore in our orange sensory bin. We will certainly have a lot of fun participating in our Trick-or-Treat walk for Halloween on, Thursday October 31, 2019. Please bring your little one’s costume in with them on that day. Thank you!!


During the month of October, we will play in our sensory bin with leaves and pinecones. Since Fall is here, we will be doing some fall crafts as well as thanksgiving crafts. We will also be celebrating Halloween at the end of the month with different activities.


For the month of October, we will be looking at how much the leaves have changed colours and what colours they have changed to. Halloween will also be celebrated this month. We will decorate our room with some scary creations for this special occasion.

School Age

October’s lessons and activities will be a continuation of September’s. I have noticed that the children love nature walks, so we will continue, but we will also talk about the changes we see. Look at the trees. How are they different from last month? Look at the grass and flowers, what do you see? Do you see any animals? Since it will be Thanksgiving very soon, we will also be talking about why it is important to be thankful for what we have. As usual, please have your children dressed appropriately for the cooler weather.
