Welcome to Little Lions- Hyde Park Site!
Let's take a look into July! So many wonderful things have been happening at the centre!
Our Kindergarten group has been raising tadpoles! They started with over 150 tadpoles and have watched them grow and develop into polywags. Just recently a dozen have grown legs and lost their tales. We learned that they are toads not frogs.
Preschool has been busy in our mud pit!
Friday July 21st we were invited to experience Karnival on Kam. The children had a fantastic tme exploring the grounds of the Old Fort. We met baby goats. piglets and chickens. We spent sometime in the teepee and learning about the fur trade. The big top circus was a hit and so were many of the other performers and demonstrations we got to see. Thank you again to the Staff at Old Fort William for making this day possible!
June was a busy month! With Weed Out Hate Day, Tapiola Family BBQ, Aboriginal Day and our Fairy Festival!
June 8th was proclaimed WEED OUT HATE DAY! Lindsey and Sam took a small group of preschoolers to City Hall to celebrate weeding out hate and growing seeds of peace and love. We started our field trip by riding the city bus! Once at City Hall we explored the fountains , listened to a story and took part in planting a sunflower! Some of our friends were STARS appearing in the local paper and on television!
We had a great turn out at our Family BBQ. Thank you everyone for coming out to join us. We planted our garden and are looking forward to delicious vegetables this year. You may have noticed the rabbit house, Peas and Carrots will be joining us out there this summer!
June 21st was not only our longest day of play but it was also Aboriginal Day. Hyde Park and Kingsway School celebrated by having a pow wow in the field. Our Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers enjoyed listening to the drumming and watching the dancers! They were so excited to see Dylan dressed in regalia! Great job Dylan on your dancing!
The Gnomes the Faeries left for us in the park!
