English Day Care Program

French Day Care Program


For the month of October, the infants will be dreaming of numbers. We will sing songs such as Five Little Pumpkins and Five Little Monkeys. We will have fun snacking and counting little fishy crackers. The infants will enjoy making numbered block towers, knocking them down and rebuilding! We will read books such as Ten Busy Buzzy Bugs, Baby Loves Fall and Count 123. On Wednesday October 31, for Halloween, we will dress up in our favorite little Halloween costumes and take part in our Trick or Treat walk!


For the month of October, we will be learning about Halloween and Thanksgiving. We will be making crafts having to do with Halloween and Thanksgiving. Our sensory bin will have orange rice with Fall leaves, pumpkins, black spiders and spoons, measuring cups for dumping and pouring. For creative movement and music we will be singing pumpkin, pumpkin and if you’re thankful and you know it and doing the actions with it. This month we will be having Halloween dress up on October 31. Please bring your child in with their costume. It is going to be a spectacular month.


Almost Hallowe’en time! This month, we will be focusing on songs and finger plays which has been a great interest of all of the children. We are also going to be listening to a variety of cultural music to sing and dance to. A dress up centre has been added to our room for the children to use. With the approach of Hallowe’en this will be turned in to costume central where the children can select costumes to wear as they play. We will also be making monster slime (with bugs and googly eyes) to add to our sensory table for the children to explore, manipulate and create monsters with. So much fun planned for October!!

School Age

What would you do after school if the weather is nice and you’re full of energy? We love to run and play outside! The children are interested in group games and imaginative play. They are constantly throwing Frisbees and tossing balls, playing hopscotch and digging in the dirt. Not a day goes by where we don’t get messy, but messy is fun. This month, we will be focusing on activities that promote healthy relationships and anti-bullying.
