This month will be a little different for the toddler room. We are excited to announce Ms. Desirae as the new toddler teacher. She has worked in all different age groups and we decided her best fit would be with the toddlers. She is energetic, positively stern, and caring when it comes to working with toddlers and has much to offer your little one. She has experience in lesson planning, following a curriculum, potty training, and teaching a toddler on how to be ready for preschool! We are excited about this change and hope that you see it as a positive one! Ms. Desirae is well known and your child should not have any issues adjusting to their new teacher!

For the month of January, we will continue to work on learning about different cultures. Because of the many snow days in December, we were not able to complete all the fun activities that were planned. We will also begin to use our homework folders again this month. Please watch for the notice by the clock in computer that lets you know when they are ready for you to take home. Happy New Year!
