In the Scent Garden, students explored how fragrance, nectar, and pollen are used to benefit both plants and insects; in the Prehistoric Garden, they studied two tree specimens once thought to be…


Toddler Community Update

Happy Thanksgiving, families! We had a short and busy week including a trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens. Toddlers enjoyed walking through the gardens, and especially liked seeing animals in nature. We spotted a raccoon and many birds along our nature walk, and even had the opportunity to feed chickadees from our hands! Overall the outing was interactive and the weather couldn't have been better. We don't have very many updates this week as you will have received an email with some notes…

Toddler Community Update

Mmmm, fresh bread! The toddler community was smelling wonderful on Thursday, when the toddlers made bread with Miss. Hinzmann.  The children took turns scooping and pouring ingredients, practicing their hand-eye coordination, focus, and concentration. As we move into colder weather, just a reminder to ensure that your child comes to school prepared for the weather. Rainy days are great for puddle jumping exploration, as long as our little ones are prepared with splash pants and rain boots.…


Casa Update

Casa students have continued to show great interest in the puzzle maps this week, as well as the flags. A favourite activity has been matching the flags.
