We hope you enjoyed the lovely and warm weekend.
We were so pleased that we were able to go ahead with our Garden Party on Friday. It was wonderful to see so many parents and grandparents come out and support our Toddler Community. We hope that you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did. You’ll see some pictures of the event attached.
As we said at the Garden Party, please take a chance to check your child’s cubby and exchange winter changes of clothes for summer ones. Please also see if your child needs more diapers (for nap) and pass any clothing that isn’t your child’s to us and we will attempt to find the correct owner.
This past week was spent enjoying our lovely warm weather and figuring out how to take care of our new rabbits. The children are enjoying feeding and watering the rabbits daily and cutting up extra fruit and veg to share. Many of the children spend a good deal of time outside the rabbit cage simply watching the rabbits do their activities. These pets have been a great addition to our garden.
We also made a great deal of food for the garden party. On Wednesday, we made 10 loaves of banana bread, using our muscles to stir the dough in a huge metal bowl. The children love to bake and are getting very good at measuring, cracking eggs, and taking turns stirring.
Kate will leave on Thursday this week for Denver, Colorado, where she will attend the Montessori Institute and take the foremost Association Montessori Internationale training in Assistance to Infancy (ages 0-3). We will miss her while she is gone but look forward to her sharing all that she has learned when she is back in August. Christine Komarnycky will be filling in for Kate while she is away. Christine has been with us throughout the year as our substitute teacher and knows all the children very well. Christine comes to us with over 25 years Montessori teaching experience at all levels and we are privileged to have her with us for the last three weeks of school.
As always, we invite you to check Seesaw regularly as we post pictures almost daily. We hope you are enjoying this new communication tool as much as we do.
Best wishes in the week to come.
Kate, Kristy, and Lisa.
