TOT SPOT Nursery School


This Month at Tot Spot... November 2017

November is a month full of learning and fun at Tot Spot. We begin the month exploring the concepts of colours, shapes, numbers, sorting and patterns. Following this, the three year old classes will be focusing on nursery rhymes through crafts, stories and gym activities.  The four year old classes will be engaging in many exciting dinosaur activities. Our special day this month will be blue/blue jean day on November 23/24. Wear something blue on this day!

As we are anticipating having a “fire drill” this month (weather permitting), please ensure your child is wearing appropriate footwear every day at school.  With the arrival of the snowy weather, your child will need a pair of inside shoes as wet boots must be removed at the door.

Our photographer, Lifetouch Canada, would like parents to know that if your child missed photo day or you would like retakes, there are two studio days available in November (Saturday Nov. 18 and Saturday Nov. 25).  Parents can book an appointment by calling Lifetouch at 403-255-5440.

If your child has had an “accident” at Tot Spot and borrowed some of our emergency clothes, we ask that you please return the clean clothes as soon as possible.

Families at Tot Spot have been asked to participate in a survey that is part of a university research project.  If your child turned 4 years old by October 15, 2017, you will be receiving a package in the next few days.  We encourage you to complete this survey.
