Baby Sign Language:
This month’s baby sign are “Brother” & “Sister”. To sign the word “brother,” make both hands into an “L” shape. Hold one hand down by your chest and place the other hand at your forehead. Bring your top hand down to meet your lower hand. To sign the word “sister,” make the same motion as “brother,” but place your one hand at your chin and the other in front of your chest.
This month, your child will answer “what” and “where” questions, understand the concept of five, and identify the names of family members.
This month, your child will add together two group of objects, learn about various forms of transportation, and understand the meaning of traffic lights.
This month we will start creating sentences with sight words as well as focusing on rhyming words and word families. We will continue working on counting by fives, tens, and ones to 100.
This month, your child will sound out unfamiliar words independently, count by tens to 100, and create and interpret a pie chart.

Letter from the Executive Director
Dear Carrington Families,
Happy March to my wonderful students and families!
I hope this letter finds you and yours well! Admission season is in full force and we are well underway with our In House registration for Private Pre-K, TK, Kindergarten, and 1st grade. Our In House registration ended on February 27th and our programs have been opened up to the community. PLEASE do not delay with your registration as our private programs are on a wait list currently, and will quickly fill up for the fall. We are truly blessed to have thriving schools as many have had to close their doors! I contribute this to our AMAZING teachers and staff!
I continue to be amazed by the growth and development of our children each day. I am immeasurably blessed by the conversations we have together and by my relationships with you, and as always am humbled and honored to have your children entrusted to us each day.
My role at Carrington will always be to continue to support the outstanding work of my teachers and principals, and to continue to create the environments that nourish the whole child and provide a place where each person knows they are valued.
We have a very busy year ahead and a time when students make incredible growth and celebrate successes. Thank you for allowing me to step alongside you as a part of your child’s life.
I leave you with this…Being a parent is easy, but really ‘parenting’ our children is another matter altogether.
When we take the time to genuinely listen to our children, kiss them good night, and set firm but gentle limits, we can be sure they will benefit from our attempts at being a good parent.
Enjoy Your Children!
A child will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for’…
Enthusiastically Working With You,
Letter from the Principal
Dear Carrington Families,
It’s hard to believe that March is here and we were recently experiencing multiple snow days! Hopefully as we move into March, the weather will become warmer, and the snow will be a distant memory. I am looking forward to all that spring has to offer! Watching my children play outside, and the flowers as they bloom, are just a few of my favorite “spring things.” Speaking of blooming, our precious children are certainly in full bloom at Carrington. As we transition into a new season, the children are transitioning as well. As I spend time in the classrooms with our children, I am amazed at the growth, independence and maturity that is evident with each new day.
Please remember to register for Private Pre-K, Transitional Kindergarten, Private Kindergarten, or Private First Grade for next school year. We have limited openings in these classrooms… so time is of the essence. If you are a current Preschool family, looking to enroll into Georgia Pre-K for the Fall, we must know by Wednesday, March 4th, to ensure that your child’s spot is not awarded to a family on our wait list.
Enjoy the blessings of springtime!
Tiffany Batts, Principal
Carrington Academy at Windermere
