“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning.

Play is really the work of childhood.” - Mr. Rogers

We've had another great month in group 1!  The kids have been saying each other's names, painting a lot and learning about sharing.  Everyone's favorite book is still, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear," we get multiple requests for it every day! They've gotten much more into art and especially loved making the coffee filter butterflies.  We planted some herbs this past Wednesday, let's hope they grow!

 

I can't believe the year is almost over!  Your children have been a joy!  Thank you for being such wonderful parents!

February

We've had a great February in group 1!  The kids had a ton of fun getting ready for art walk, taking buggy rides and playing on the playground!  They've grown up so much since the beginning of the year, it's like we have a whole new group of kids.  Everyone is walking now and talking so much more.  They are learning names and showing more preferences for certain books and toys.  I think everyone's favorite book is "Brown Bear, Brown Bear."
