This month, we celebrate Thanksgiving, a time to gather with loved ones and reflect on those
people and things for which we are grateful.
We are especially thankful that our first month of school has been filled with excitement and
exploration for our students. Thanks to our incredible team of teachers, the children have spent
the past month getting to know one another and settling into a routine of free-play; circle, story
and gym time; as well as daily art activities. As parents, we delight in the stories of their day and
all that they are learning.
This month the children will have conversations and activities that centre around Fall, gratitude,
and Thanksgiving. They will also start weekly music sessions with Miss Melissa from Simple
We must also take this opportunity to thank those of you who purchased apples through our
recent Apple Fundraiser. We are deeply grateful to be a part of a community that is committed to
supporting the enrichment of our local children.
The WHCA Preschool is a play-based, local preschool program that runs morning and afternoon
classes for three- and four-year-old children in the WHCA Community Centre. Using a play-
based curriculum, our children develop social, emotional, intellectual, and gross motor skills that
are the foundation for future learning.
