We have been working on developing better communication tools to better involve and inform parents and we will now begin sending out letters to all parents that attend our daycares. These letters will include daycare newsletters, informational blog posts, and learning and play activities that we incorporate into the programming. We have had a busy few months with setting up the second centre, accreditation process and review for our 8st location, accreditation preparation for the Renfrew Dr location and all the transitioning activities and want to send our thanks to all the parents for your continued support and understanding.
Upcoming for December Holidays
We want to reach out to parents and get an idea of their need for childcare over the Christmas Holidays. Please reply to us with your schedule between Dec 20 to 31 if you require care during those last week so we can coordinate with the staff.
Activities for November
We all enjoyed the fall season and admired the costumes during Halloween. As we all know, the holiday season is quickly approaching. We all need to go sightseeing so that we can enjoy the seasonal decor everywhere. Christmas is in the air; holiday songs are heard everywhere, and Santa is on the minds of many children. Whether you celebrate Eid, Diwali, Hanukkah or Chinese New Year, we feel it is very important for children to learn and understand as well as respect others belief’s which can be educating, interesting and fun.

All the activities, art/craft, gross and fine motor skills will be based on the above-mentioned theme
