English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


For the month of March, the infants will get creative building their own cabins by sorting and stacking blocks of different sizes and colours. We will fish and scoop for frozen treasures in our water table. We will also get a little chilly painting ice cubes. We will make a mystery basket weaved with wool and ribbon to find and hide what’s inside. The infants will create their own music tunes by providing an assortment of kitchen items such as bowls, spoons, tongs. We will also do a colour match up with popsicle sticks. The infants will have a sensory tray filled with fun green items to explore textures, sounds and scents. On Tuesday March 17, 2020, come to day care wearing green for St. Patrick’s Day!!


The children have been interested in buses and the song the wheels on the bus. For the month of March, I will incorporate different round materials to the room to resemble wheels on the bus. We will have CD’s, ball toss, colour match box. I will add printed roads on the floor so the children can drive cars/buses around. I will also be adding a light table with a ramp to drive their buses/cars on. To finish off the month we will take the bus to the outreach. We will be having a pyjama day on Friday March 20th have your child come in their PJ’s!


For the month of March, we will continue to work on our letters, colours and shapes during our morning meetings. The children have still been enjoying building so I will bring out new supplies for them to use. Since dinosaurs have been a topic of interest this month, we will be exploring different aspects of them, depending on what the children are questioning. During March break we will be having a P.J. Day on March 20th.

School Age

For the month of March, the SAC group will be focusing on “warming hearts.” March brings us joy for the upcoming Spring season and the school-age children will be focusing on being mindful. This mindfulness activity will get them to think about what brings them joy and what warms each of their hearts. The SAC group will also enjoy some hands-on activities such as making lots of colourful playdoh! We can’t go a month without some yummy treats, so this month we will be festive for St. Patrick’s Day and make some green cupcakes! The SAC group has thoroughly enjoyed the different scavenger hunts we have done, so for this month, they will have tons of fun hunting down all of the gold coins to fill their pot (no end of the rainbow necessary)!
