What a marvellous month May was! From Soccer on the field to chicks in the classroom the month flew by! The secret garden has continued to be a hive of activity! With the new additions of a play house and sink the children continue to have lots of fun. It always amazes the teachers how many different ways the children can use one piece of equipment. The playhouse has been a shop, school, house, garage, hotel and secret den to name a few! Children’s imaginations really are the most amazing...

April was an extremely fun time in preschool…We had chicks!! The children (and adults) were so excited when the eggs arrived and we patiently waited every day for them to hatch!! A few days later the excitement levels were through the roof!! The eggs started to crack and just like that we had 4 chicks!! Each class got to name their class chick and watch how they grew and changed over the three weeks. We even taught them to swim!! The chicks are now happily back at the farm enjoying a more...

After Spring Break, we were all ready to get back to Preschool and see our friends! March was a busy month as we continued to work on our class topics, focusing on Canadian animals. The children learnt about so many animals, from Polar Bears, Beavers, Belugas and Geese, the list goes on!! They learnt about their bodies, how they live and how they adapt to the challenging weather we have in Canada. They thought about the question ‘Where do animals go during the winter?’ ‘Do they hibernate,...

Firstly, Happy New Year from all the children, teachers and parents at the Preschool! 2021 seemed to go by in a flash! The teachers have been busy planning fun activities, and we can’t wait to get started on a new year in school. We are very happy and excited to be offering skating lessons again this year for all of our classes. These start at the end of this month and run for 4 weeks. These lessons are always so much fun and it’s amazing how quickly the children pick up the skating skills!...

After the excitement of ducks in April, May did not disappoint with the arrival of caterpillars! The children enjoyed watching them grow and change into butterflies. The children watched the caterpillars move around and eat, and then, make their way to the lid of the container to start to pupate (become chrysalides). A few days later the teachers moved the chrysalides into the garden habitat and waited for the butterflies to emerge. We had a very emotional goodbye to the butterflies a week...

After Spring Break, we were all ready to get back to Preschool and see our friends! March was a busy month as we continued to work on our class topics. Space has been an extremely popular topic with all the children. From blasting off to the moon, dramatic play with the class rocket to pretending we are on the moon, walking on an air mattress! In craft, the children made their own spaceship for an alien they had designed and in circle time we looked at different constellations of stars in the...
