A Note From Our Principal
It’s finally fall and we can’t wait to experience everything this season has to offer with our students and families. We are looking forward to taking the learning outside and are planning special hands-on learning activities in all of our classrooms. This month we have several amazing family events as well. We hope you can attend!
Despite the unpredictability of fall weather we try to ensure that our students spend time outdoors each day. Please make sure your child has a jacket available and a weather appropriate change of clothes in their cubby at all times. We have many fun outdoor activities scheduled for this month and don’t want any of our students to miss out!

In our infant program, we start using baby sign language from the earliest months. Baby signs are common terms that have been modified and simplified from American Sign Language. The sign for this month is “Mommy”. To sign the word “mommy” tap your thumb on your chin repeatedly.
This month your toddler will begin to develop an increased self-awareness and awareness of others.
This month, your child will answer “what,” “where” and “yes/no” questions, identify one object versus many, and learn the names of community helpers.
This month, your child will learn to whisper, name basic three-dimensional shapes, describe how objects are similar and different, and name and explore the five sense.
This month, your child will learn to describe people or objects in more detail, describe a story’s main characters and setting, and identify objects associated with fire safety.
