***This is a glimpse of what each classroom will be focusing on.  Please see the   classroom bulletin board for more detailed lessons.



Baby Sign Language:

This month’s baby sign is “all done”.  To sign the word “all done,” place both hands in front of your chest and flip them outwards and inwards.  For further assistance, have your child’s teacher show you how to make the baby sign, or refer to videos and articles on the Web.



This month, your child will learn to connect the events in stories to her own life experiences, match animals with their sounds, and continue identifying shapes and colors.

This month, your child will continue using sequence vocabulary (i.e. first, second), name basic shapes, and learn about farms and farm animals.



This month, your child will continue to identify uppercase and lowercase letters, recognize numerals 1-40, and create original patterns.




Read Together, Talk Together

Dear Carrington Academy McFarland Families,

Welcome to the wonderful month of February with Valentine’s Day fast approaching there is a definite feeling of love in the air.  In the beginning of the month we will focus on Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day! We will be having classroom parties where you can bring Valentine cards and do not forget our Kiss the Pig fundraiser. The pigs are coming to our school, so don’t forget to bring in your spare change next week to feed the pigs that are located at the front desk.  The classroom that collects the most change will see their teacher kiss a pig.  This truly is an exciting and busy time of year!

Now that we are in the New Year, it is time to start enrolling for the 2015-2016 school year.  We have already started with our IN House registration for our Private Pre-K and TK.  Our In House registration will end on February 6th and we will then open our programs up to the community.  Programs are filling up quickly for the fall.  Please do not delay with your registration so that you are ensured a spot for the upcoming school year.  Remember, if you turn in your Pre-K and TK registration form along with a deposit BEFORE February 6th, you will receive $250 off of your deposit for the first month tuition in the fall.  We are very blessed to have so many wonderful families currently enrolled with us.  We are also equally blessed to have such an awesome team of teachers who truly love your children and inspire their students to become lifelong learners.


Partnering with you,

Jan Migliaccio
