For the month of September, the infants will create a fall tree using their fingerprints. We will play in a bin of leaves and bugs. We will create and have fun playing with fall sensory bottles. The infants will paint using outdoor greenery and get messy finger painting. We will play with squishy fall sensory bags. The infants will also explore with different sized boxes and items to hide and find.


For the month of September, we will continue with group songs. We will have fun playing in our sensory bin with food colouring. We will focus on increasing the children’s vocabulary with pictures of food and words with it. We will also play games like toddler twister to learn their colours.


For the month of September, we are going to be getting back into the school year routine since school will resume then. This means that the school busses will be out picking up the children to bring them to school so we will be talking about the busses and the safety that goes along with them. We also will be looking at all the different kinds of safety signs we see around town. Since September is usually a month where we see the leaves start to change color, we will also learn about this process.

School Age

Once again, it is time to go back to school. With the weather cooling down, it is the perfect opportunity for us to go on hikes or nature walks and collect items for crafts. Speaking of crafts, we will be making suncatchers and stained-glass art, and I will teach the children about pointillism. It is classical music month, so why not switch it up from our normal meditation music to some Bach or Beethoven? As usual, please have your children dress appropriately for the weather.
