We will finish transitioning our preschoolers to their new class groups this month. Please remember that depending on their birthday and when they will be eligablie for kindergarden not all children change classrooms. Remember that being the among the oldest in the group give the children to be leaders.
The butterfies continue to work on letters, numbers, names and are starting to learn the sound and signals for our zoo-phonics program. When all of the children have made the transition to the group we will send home some information for parents on the program. The butterflies will be working on "rumble in the jungle" this month. The butterflies are learning the sound and signals for each letter of the alphbet. We will start with the letter of the week program in September when all the children have finished trasitioning to the group. Remember our share day is Wednesday but books are welcome everyday. Please make sure books are labeled with the child's name.
The Caterpillars continue to work on letters, numbers and names. For our new friends in the caterpillar group when we write names we start with one letter and add one at a time. The caterpillars are working on transportation this month. If you have any books related to this subject please send them in for us to read. Share day is Tuesday.
The bumble Bees are going to learn all about birds this month while they go 'flying with our feathered friends." At circle time the bees work on colors, numbers, counting objects as well letter and name recognition.
The Sweet Peas day includes tummy time, baby massage, being read and sang to as well as some simple art projects. The Lady bugs and Grasshoppers are going "down of the farm" this month. These groups have circle time, art time, inside-outside play and multiple story times throughout the day. Please remember as your child has their well baby checks and receives their immunizations to bring us a copy so we can keep our files up to date. Thank you!

Remember NO weapons or super hero or related items.Children will not be allowed to share these items. Thank you! Remember that children should not bring in toys or other items except on share day. These items can get lost or broken or cause hurt feelings. Thank you for your help in following this policy. Books or CD's are welcome any day.
When dropping off or picking up your child please remember to pull in from the north driveway and park so that 2 cars can fit side by side. (But please allow enough space for the gate to open.) Also our wonderful neighbors @ Fresh & Quick Catering allow us to use their lot however they do ask that you use the spaces facing Riverside Blvd and not along the building or the fence separating our properties. During their business hours please do not use Japanese Service Center's parking lot.

We have some warm weather reminders for parents. If you would like sun screen applied to you child please send in a bottle with your child's teacher we will put it on in the afternoons. No backless shoes or sandals please. This is a safety issue. Remember to check coat racks for coats, jackets and sweaters you may have left. Please label all coats and sweaters.
