My childcare program will be closing at the end of the month. The last day of care will be provided on Friday, October 31st. I have truly enjoyed caring for and learning alongside all of the children and will dearly miss seeing them each and every week. I thank you for your kindness and the opportunity to be a part of your child's life.

We're Counting on Some Halloween Fun!

Virtual Story: Room on the Broom
 "The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up and blows away the witch's hat, then her bow, and then her wand! Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom. But is there room on the broom for so many friends? And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon?"

Wizard of Oz Unit Study

At the beginning of this month, we centered our learning around our shared experiences of camping, indoors and out.  Now, we're off to the Emerald City! We'll be reading similar tales and reenacting story events.

Are you "Ready for Pumpkins?"

The final week of October we will be reading our favorite as well as some new silly and spooky stories.  We will also be learning about "trick or treat" safety, just in time for Halloween night. Our groups will be celebrating together a little early, on Thursday, October 23rd and again on Halloween day.

Five Little Lions Fingerplay



Letting out a ROOAARR!
One went home and then there were four.
Four little lions trying to climb a tree.
One fell down and bonked his head
And then there were three.
Three little lions eating antelope stew.
One went home and then there were two.

Two little lions basking in the sun,
One went home and then there was one.
One little lion, feeling all alone.
He went home and then there was... none!
