English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


During the month of May, the infants will enjoy the warmth of the season. The infants will sing songs such as Sprinkle, Sprinkle, Kites, Spring is Here. The infants will create one of a kind beautiful spring flowers. We will have lots of fun playing with squishy rainbow coloured spaghetti. The infants will enjoy climbing in and out of the colourful pool of balls. We will all get our hands a little dirty exploring gardening and planting our very own vegetables. The infants will love to play outside and go for refreshing walks now that we won’t have to bundle up so much! The infants will be working on something very special for Mother’s Day, made with love!


Made some changes in our room. The children loved the changes. We added a farmhouse with farm animals. The children will learn about different kinds of farm animals. We have talked about the snow melting. We will be planting flowers, plants and vegetables as well as have discussions about the weather: rain, snow and melting. We will celebrate Mother’s Day.


Spring is here and the children have been loving the gardening center in the room as well as using different materials to create flowers. Sliding outside has also been a big hit, spending most of our afternoon outside. Did a room change and all the children responded well to the changes and the added toys and materials. For next month, the children will be planting different seeds to watch grow and then transfer outside when able to. Sensory invitations and materials will also be a focus as well as some school readiness activities such as counting and letter recognition.

School Age

In May we will be working on springtime themed crafts, although using the materials provided, the children can create anything they want. Creativity is ALWAYS welcome in the SAC class. We will be talking about life cycles, specifically the caterpillar to butterfly life cycle, making predictions, reading books, and having discussions. Did you know that caterpillars turn themselves into goo inside those cocoons? Cool eh!? Also, since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, we will be making gifts for our mothers, aunties, grandmothers, or any other special female guardian in our lives.
