We have said goodbye to Haley who has moved to the next class as well as welcomed Katherine and Brooks to our class. We are very excited for you to join our class and watch you grow!

Sprites Newsletter South: April 2014

The Sprites class had a fun month of March. We have enjoyed painting with green paint for St. Patrick’s Day and painting with vegetables. In the coming months, with the weather getting warmer, the Sprites will be making our way outside on the playground and some stroller rides which is so nice for our little ones. Please, if you have not done so, bring in a hat and jacket to leave for those times that we can go have some fun in the sun. Also, for your little ones that use sunscreen, please feel free to bring some in and we will have a sheet for you to fill out.  In April, we will enjoy painting, feeling different textures and circle time with songs and books.  We will also explore nature by taking stroller rides.

Sprites Newsletter South: August 2013

July in the Sprites room was a fun and exciting month.  We enjoyed so many different art projects and put them on the walls, so parents if you have not checked them out yet, please do so.  The weather has been very hot so the babies did not get much time outside but enjoyed inside.  Hopefully the weather will get a little nicer so that the little ones may spend more time outside. Sprites have some very young infants in our classroom now and the older children have been very curious about them. We have been working with “gentle touch” and “safe hands” when we are getting to know the new babies. We are very excited for the Annual Picnic at our East location.
