April, 2018, Newsletter

Welcome back to the Koala room!  Hopefully everyone was able to enjoy some extra cuddle time with your kids.

The month of April is “The Month of the Young Child”.  The color for early childhood is purple, which is why we will be having designated “wear purple” days throughout the month of April.  These days are as follows:

  • Wednesday, April 11th

  • Thursday, April 12th
  • Monday, April 16th

  • Thursday, April 26th – Purple parade at 10:00

  • Friday, April 27th – Purple parade at 10:00

We will be having a pizza fun lunch on Monday, April 16th.  The cost of this particular lunch will only be $1.00, which is due on Wednesday, April 11th.

As always, lots of fun activities are planned for this month.  The week of April 9th, we will be having some adventures in Space.  The kids will be doing some projects with planets, rockets, and the moon and also learning how the Earth, Sun and Moon rotate around each other.

On Thursday, April 12th, our class is scheduled to watch a performance by the “Music Lady” from 9:00-9:45.  If this is not a day normally attended by your child, you are welcome to come in with your child for the hour to observe the performance.  The kids have a blast singing and moving along with the music!

The week of the 16th, we will be rotating around the different childcare rooms learning assorted Nursery Rhymes:

  • Monday – Busy Bee room – “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”

  • Tuesday – Tiger room – “Hickory Dickory Dock”

  • Wednesday – Owl room – “Humpty Dumpty”

  • Thursday – Frog room – “Itsy Bitsy Spider”

  • Friday – Zebra room – “Jack Be Nimble”

The Koala room will be doing “This Little Piggy”.  Lots of cool activities planned!

The week of April 23rd is our Dinosaur week.  Many fun things planned for this week including hatching dinosaur eggs!

The last week of April, going into May, our theme will be Fairy tales.  The stories planned are “Little Red Hen”, “Three Little Pigs”, “Three Billy Goats Gruff”, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, and “Henny Penny”.  The kids will have opportunities to recall the stories as well as have fun with projects associated with the story.

Thank you for all of your support and have a great month!
