All students will take part in our Children’s Day Celebration! Toddler Tree teachers have prepared different centers for the kids to have a full farm experience. Between finding the milk bottle caps in the haystack, milk bottle bowling, milking the cow, egg and spoon racing, wheelbarrows, everyone is sure to have a great time. No need for lunchboxes, as April room mothers will provide the snacks. Please dress children in jeans and white top with sneakers or comfortable shoes.
Easter Parade and Party on Wednesday, March 21 @ Club Alpino Chipinque
It has become a tradition at Toddler Tree to celebrate the coming of Spring and Easter with a special party. The event will begin at 10:00am with families arriving. Decorated trikes, bikes or scooters will be organized by group at an indicated location. Here are some examples of how Toddler Tree families have decorated different vehicles using paper, balloons, flowers, plush toys and other decorations.
The kids can choose from a variety of activities the teachers have prepared and there will be time for an individual photo shoot with the Easter bunny, too. When everyone has arrived, Toddler Tree staff will blow the whistle to start the Easter Parade. The kids will ride through the path in their decorated vehicles. Everybody will share a snack after that. We have been preparing confetti stuffed eggshells for the Easter Egg Hunt that will take place after the snack. We look forward to seeing you there!

This week the Crawling Caterpillars got to enjoy Valentine’s Day so much. We celebrated this special holiday with a fun party! Students exchanged candies and treats with their friends; they enjoyed a snack and got a visit from the mail man (Mr. Mike), who gave them a special treat. These activities helped encourage sharing and friendship.
This week, during Exploration, we had fun with the dentist. Students enjoyed playing with tooth brushes. During art class we used for the first time markers and had so much fun with them doing a heart. Then in Circle time, Mr. Mike had some of the Crawling Caterpillars role play the book “The Lady With The Alligator Purse.”
This week we had a lot of fun!!! We learned to use different materials, such as crayons, paint and shaving cream. We started practicing rules and following instructions. Also, we focused learning about colors, shapes, numbers, weather, ABC and reviewing the winter theme. The Crawling Caterpillars are still adapting to our learning environment, but are no longer crying. We are starting to share and learn about friendship!
Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
Keep in mind we won’t be having class on Monday, so see you next Tuesday!
As we close a great first semester, we want to wish you all a joyous Holiday Break. May you find time for relaxing, celebrating, and catching up with loved ones. Wishing you all wonderful things in 2018.
We are happy to have you back! During this week we started working with Christmas decorations. Big Bears had a great time using their fine motor skills. Also, they are also practicing with Miss Mely for the Christmas Program and are eager to show you!
Everyday when our students arrive to school they tell us what they asked for Christmas and how Santa is always watching them. Next week, Santa will visit us and the kids will have the opportunity to put their wishes in his mailbox and take a picture with him!
We will continue preparing for our “Toy Stories Winter Festival” which will be presented for parents and grandparents at Candy Gum Party Place on Monday December 11.
Thank you dear Big Bear Parents for coming to the parent-teacher conference.
A quick reminder: please remember to label all jackets and sweaters to avoid mix ups.
