We have had a great start to Stanley’s Preschool! Thank you for your patience as the children has transitioned into their classes.

This month we will be talking about Harvest on the Farm/Thanksgiving. Through stories, games, songs, and other activities, we will learn about Thanksgiving as well as notice the changes that occur at this time of year, such as the changing colours, cooler temperatures, falling leaves, etc. We will also be having a Halloween party for the preschool classes.

We will be taking our first trip of the school year to Steckle Heritage Homestead, where we will be learning about fall harvest and farm animals. We will be going on Oct 9, & 10th. We will meet you and your child at the Farm at 9:30 sharp (rain or shine), the trip is over at 11:00. This trip is only for the preschool classes. Forms and money need to be in this week.

Mabel’s Labels is here at Stanley’s Preschool. If you click on the link go to Support a Fundraiser and type in “Stanley’s Preschool”, a portion of the funds spent on your purchase will be given to our school. They have an amazing selection of waterproof labels in all shapes and sizes that are perfect for everything, especially labeling children’s clothes, shoes/ boots, and backpacks!

What are loose parts?

In a play, loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials. Loose parts can be natural or synthetic.

FYI:

Please remember to label all your child’s clothing that comes to preschool, to help with that we now using Mabel’s Labels. This will be a fundraising event.

Please remember to call when your child is sick. We are required by the Health Department to track any influenza cases.

  • Pine cones, flowers, sticks, leaves and acorns.
