Hi Parents!
Do you have a musical talent you would like to share with the children?  Perhaps you play an instrument or know a song from a different part of the world that you could teach the children?  I would love to have some parent volunteers join me in Music class over the next few months! If you are interested, please email Julie and Ann-Marie to  arrange to meet with me.  Thanks!

Marching Towards Spring!
Spring is around the corner and we are celebrating this month! We may have a few leprechauns causing some mischief while we wish Dr. Seuss a Happy Birthday during our Cuddle Up and Read month. 

You can find the school calendar and all upcoming events on our website's News & Events page.
News from the Directors
March is Cuddle Up and Read Month at the preschool. This month we celebrate reading and all the places it can take us. Join us in making March a month where BOOKS and reading aloud are a priority! There is no substitute for the time spent reading aloud to children.   Reading aloud to children entertains them, helps them develop vocabulary, lengthens their attention span, creates a love of books, promotes their emergent reading skills, and most importantly, it gives you priceless snuggle time with them. What could possibly be more special than that?  As you come into the preschool this month, take a look at our staff's favorite children's books! Do you have a favorite? If so, tell us!!

Blessings,
Julie and Ann-Marie
