Town Room News

We have had a great start with our new class! Charlie, Cecelia, Lewie, Sam and Jacey have officially moved into our classroom from the Forest Room and are doing great! We just want to remind parents that for some children it takes some time for them to adjust completely (especially at drop off).

This month our theme is “Harvest Happenings”! The first week will be “Time for Fall”, the second “Four Seasons of the Year”, the third “Music” and the fourth “Halloween”! Check out our themes and weekly fun days here

We would love to have our families come celebrate our Halloween Party with us as, we will be singing some Halloween songs for you!
