This month we will be finding out about dinosaurs, how big they are and food they eat. We continue to learn colours, numbers and shapes through various games we will be playing.

Did you know at the University of Waterloo at the Earth-Sciences-Museum has an exhibition on dinosaurs.

Our Valentine’s Day parties will be on February 13 &14. If your child would like to give their classmates Valentine cards or treats to take home with them, there are 16 children in each class. Please do not worry about writing each individual child’s name on the card or treat, just write who it is from.

Fall

Now is the time to start thinking about preschool for next fall. If your child will be returning or has a sibling coming in the fall, please let us know by the end of the month. Starting in March we will be opening registration to the community and we expect to fill up fast.

Music helps a child be creative and express themselves. They are developing an appreciation for the arts, and their ability to be musical. Children are learning listening skills and how to differentiate sounds. They are using the part of the brain that also does math. It is also fun to move their body and express themselves through music!

Bad Weather

Remember there may be the occasional inclement weather days. Stanley’s Preschool closes whenever the schools close and this closure information is on the various local radio stations.

To help take the winter blahs away we are having pajama days, on Feb. 20, 21 & 22. Please send your child in their pj’s along with a toy to share for show and tell.

Book orders are due Feb. 22, 27 & 28. Please make cheques payable to Scholastic Canada Ltd or you can pay online.
