Infants

Here’s hoping for a beautiful month of July as the infants want to get outside as much as possible to enjoy the fresh air and have lots of fun in the sun. We’ll have a great time blowing huge bubbles and popping them. We will create artistic chalk masterpieces. The infants will paint with water, making magical pictures and watch them dry and disappear. We will also paint with mini ice blocks in fun and bright colours. We will have bins of bubbles with many hidden items to search for. The infants will have fun creating their own sticky nature mural. The infants also hope to have some fun water time and some special cool treats to enjoy outside.

Following the Infant program.

Preschool

For the month of July, we will continue to utilize our outdoor space and enjoy the summer weather. Water play activities, building supplies, art stations, and sensory activities will be available for the children to explore and engage with. The specific activities that we participate in will be chosen considering the interests of the group each week. We will continue to establish a routine that works with our group and mainly outdoor program. As a reminder, providing a sun hat, sunscreen, and extra clothes for your child would be appreciated throughout this month.

School Age

This month, the children have helped me plan a ton of activities that will not only be educational, but fun as well. We have picnic days planned once a week, sports days every Monday, and action-packed science days where we will do all sorts of neat experiments. (Who doesn’t love baking soda volcanos, oil and water lava lamps, and colour changing celery?)  Occasionally we may go to the splash pad – weather and COVID permitting, or take a walk in the bush to find loose parts and building materials for our projects. We also have two tie-dye days planned where we will dye shirts or blankets with bright colours and cool designs. The children are most excited about that, and honestly, I am too!! Being creative and having fun is what the School Age kids do best. I know we will have a lot of fun this month. Please remember to ensure your children are dressed appropriately for the weather as we will be outside everyday rain or shine.
