January 2023 at Tot Spot

Happy New Year!  We trust everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends over the holidays.  We would like to start off 2023 by thanking you for your generous donations to the Salvation Army Food and Toy Drive!  We had several boxes of food and toys that went to families that needed a little extra support this holiday season.  Thank you!

We will begin the new year exploring many things associated with winter through crafts, games and stories. After completing our winter theme, the four year old classes will be learning about bears and penguins while the three year old classes will be exploring different types of transportation. Our special day this month will be Pyjama Day (January 19th/20th) so wear your pyjamas and bring your favourite stuffy to school this day!  Show and Share will also begin the end of January for children in the 4 year old program.  Watch for further details later this month!

After a Covid hiatus, Tot Spot T-shirts are back!  You will have the opportunity to purchase a Having Fun at Tot Spot T-shirt with your child’s handprints on it.  Watch for further details at the end of this month!

Just a gentle reminder that the children need a pair of shoes (running shoes are best) to change into at school and wet footwear/boots should be placed on the mats in the foyer.  Please make sure boots are labelled with your child’s name and ensure your child has the correct boots when leaving.  Please note:  we do practice fire drills and don’t have time to stop to put on winter boots!

Please have your child use the washroom before coming to school or use the washrooms down the hall to the right of the sanctuary before coming in to class.
