Notes from the Toddler Room

Dear Families,

Wow, we sure are off to a great start! September was a month filled with new beginnings, new friendships and new routines for our little ones, and they have done an awesome job with this! Already in just a few short weeks they have learned how to come in and get settled, how to choose an activity, and they almost all know how we transition from one activity to the other! It’s so exciting for us to see them practicing our routines, and it’s even more fun when we hear them “announce” what’s coming next…’time to sit on the handwashing line!’

Our newly mastered skills are reinforced with the songs, routines and activities we do on a daily basis, and if you haven’t noticed already on the daily sheets, we repeat these over and over. Yes, this is done intentionally! Among other benefits, repetition helps develop our toddlers’ sense of comfort and confidence. We will continue to add more tasks to this ever-growing list of practices with each passing week.

You will see on the October calendar that we are starting our weekly themes revolving around colors! This is very fun for us and our kiddos will get right into it! We will be on the lookout for the week’s color in our clothes, around our room, and in our projects. If your child has a color-specific shirt or pair of socks to wear, please encourage them! October 10 will be an exciting day; the firefighters come visit and they even bring a fire truck to school! October 25 will be school wide picture day (more information on that will be handed out), and then of course we will have a low-key Halloween celebration on Friday, October 28. We will give you details on this event in a couple of weeks.

We are really enjoying getting to know your children! Shannon and I absolutely love our days with them, and it is so fun for us to see their personalities shine through!

You will hear this a lot, and we mean it. If you have any concerns or questions, please just ask! We would rather you communicate with us TOO much than not enough!!

Sincerely,
Francesca and Shannon
