Hello Parents!  

We hope you have had a chance to enjoy the beauty that Fall brings.   Some of the days are warm and sunny, while others are cold and rainy!  Now is the time for layers of clothing and boots.   It is a good time to let your child talk about and draw about the weather.  What will it be like today?  Please look through this resource and enjoy some fun learning with your child. Reach out to us always for any questions or concerns!

BE A COMMUNITY

Our four program-wide expectations are Be Compassionate, Be Curious, Be a Community and Be Courageous. This week we will focus on how children can Be A Community.

We are A Community when we:

  • Are kind to one another
  • Take care of one another
  • Embrace our differences and cultures
  • Share what we know and care about
  • Solve problems together

In this week’s learning resource, you will find an activity related to this week’s expectation. Let us know how it went!
