April showers bring May flowers... And with April just a week away, it's time to get out the rainboots! 

Before the new month begins, though, we're taking one more march around the block, and having our Winter Season wrap up party and Open House this Friday! We're getting ready to make our report on the meaning of March, when our friend the March Hare hops into town. 

Parents are invited to pop in between 3 and 5pm to check out the photo wall, talk to the teachers about the classes, and celebrate with the kids as we recap our winter!

On April 7, our Spring Season classes kick off, running everyday from 1 - 4pm, and the new line-up features another special guest: Lisa Sars! We're so excited to welcome her back to Buddings, where she'll be presenting her amazing dance and yoga class Butterfly Feet, every Monday until July. 

We've got some more great news, and another returning teacher in the works. Our Labour Market Impact Assessment decision was returned to us this week, and it's a green light for our girl Denet! Hopefully she'll be back in time to cover Jen's maternity leave. :)

Our teachers are awesome, but it's the kids who make this job so much fun! This week, we're pleased to introduce a new feature: Buddings Kids. Take a moment to read a few of the reasons we love coming to work everyday, and why we're so happy you come here, too!

Marching through March is rounding the last bend...
Hup, two, three, four!

Winter Season Wrap-Up Party and Open House - Mar. 27, 2015

The Winter Season is wrapping up, with a hip-hopping party on Friday Mar. 27, and you're invited to come check it out from 3 - 5pm. 

The chairs will be all set up for the afternoon interviews, where the kids will present their impressions of the winter, and what they liked and learned. 

The teachers are also preparing photos of some of their favourite activities, fieldtrips, and experiences, and we can't wait to show you how this amazing program works!

There are a few days left in the season, and before we close it down, the Neighbourhoods class has one more neighbourhood to visit: Maksim's! 

This class has been an exploration of belonging and Jen's post on the blog highlights some of the places they've been! Check it out!


Spring Season Starts Apr. 7, with Special Guest... Butterfly Feet

Drum roll, please! 

We're so excited to present the line-up for our Spring Season of play and learning! Journeys with Drago the Dragon, exploring Nature and Science, All About Babies, and da da dah: a special visit every week from Lisa Sars of Butterfly Feet Yoga Dance! 

The calendar for April, May, and June is up and ready for the adventure to begin! We can't wait! 

... but we have to... because the season doesn't start until April 7. It runs every afternoon from 1 - 4pm until June 26. See you there!

Update on Denet - Step 1: ACCOMPLISHED!!!

The letter from Service Canada arrived last week, and we are so excited to announce that our application to have our all-star dance and daycare teacher, Denet, return to Buddings was approved! 

This is the first of at least three steps (who knows?), and we're still a few weeks from her return, but it's a step in the right direction. 

Thanks again for your questions and well-wishes. We're so grateful to have your support. 
Buddings Kids - Unique... and similar ;)
 

Wondering what it's like to be a teacher at Buddings? 

 

The kids and families at Buddings are special and unique, and our teachers are so lucky to know so many! We are constantly amazed by the things the kids do and say, and learn.  

 

The Buddings Profiles are written by our teachers to express some of our favourite childhood traits, expressed in some of our long-time buddies. 

 

We love all the kids, and these stories are some of the reasons we love our job so much!
