English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


For the month of March, the infants will happily welcome in the first day of spring! The infants will enjoy singing songs such as March, Pass the Colour and I’m a Little Leprechaun. We will be lacing tubes and playing colorful ring toss. The infants will be on the look out for hidden treasures during our search for lucky charms and the green jello dig! We will sing songs about colours. Plan to wear Green on Friday, March 15 for St Patrick’s Day and Yellow on Wednesday, March 20 for the first day of spring!


For the month of March, we will learn about the colors of the rainbow and St Patrick’s day. For literacy, we will have hidden letters in a sensory bin under shredded paper and they will get to match the letter to the puzzle. For music and movement, we will sing March and the rainbow song. For sensory and creative arts, we will paint on foil and make a paper rainbow using paper and construction paper. Since the children love play-dough we will also have that available. We will have all kinds of blocks – colored, wooden, legos and magnetic for them to build towers with since toddlers love to do that. For dramatic play we will have a rainbow and clouds set up in the room for them to engage in pretend play. For outside play we will play with shovels and slide with the sleighs. Don’t forget to bring your child with proper outerwear since March is usually milder and we will be spending more time outdoors!


In observing the children, I have noticed that they are interested in dinosaurs and farm animals. We will be looking at the different kinds of dinosaurs; their habitats; what foods they eat; etc. We will also spend time learning about farm animals including sounds they make; foods they eat; their special purpose on the farm and so much more. We will set up a dinosaur mountain and a farmyard during the month.

School Age

I have implemented chores into our daily routine after snack. Sweeping, dusting, and dishes. The children are always eager to help and occasionally argue about who does what. It’s great to see them being so responsible. As always, remind your child to dress appropriately for the weather as it is still very cold and we will be going outdoors daily. We will be talking about ways to combat bullying and doing activities that promote healthy relationships.
