McKenzie Little Lions - October 2017

                       “Where is the book in which the teacher can read about

                            What teaching is?  The children themselves are this book. 

                          We should not learn to teach out of any book other than the

                             One lying open before us

                                        and consisting of the children themselves.”

                                                                    Rudolf Steiner

October is a busy month, make sure to check out the goings on we have this month, listed below.

Flex Schedules are needed for October, please email them or hand them in ASAP

Monday October 9th, Thanksgiving, the Daycare is closed.

Thursday October 19th, Annual Two-Bit auction at Current River Rec Centre, tickets $5 each, super fun evening, donations required, see our list of needed items.

Tuesday October 24th, Enchanted Garden at St Paul school. Sign up list will be posted, the early times fill up quickly, so be sure to put your name on the list.

Tuesday October 31st, Halloween, our afternoon snack at 3:30, will be a meal for the children (Sheppard’s pie) so as to feed the children well before a night of trick or treating.

Please remember about school closures, if the school is closed, the daycare is closed.  The radio stations will announce school closures and they are also posted on the Lakehead board transportation website, by 7:00am.  So please be sure to listen in on days the weather may be hazardous.

Something to consider when sending your child to daycare after being unwell; “The 48 hour rule.” It may not be convenient having a sick child at home, but for the sake of other children and their educators, please keep your child at home after episodes of vomiting, diarrhea, or even a fever!!          Thank you so much

A reminder to parents that if you have a child away from school, please call the daycare and let us know as well 683-5624. This is important for the safety of the children as well as for staffing purposes.
As fall approaches, please be sure to include extra layers for your children for outdoor play, a hat and little gloves possibly.  An extra outfit is always handy to have in their cubby in case of messy play or eating.

Toddler and Preschool families, Please, if you have an updated family picture, we would love to have a copy to display in our room.  The children love showing off their families.

School age and Kindergarten children, we would like paper towel rolls, old cookie cutters, extra nails, screws, hooks, buttons and beads. As well, we are collecting pop can tabs for a future project and old markers that are drying out for an experiment.


Happy Birthday to;   Claire on October 3rd
