Welcome to Tot Spot! Our staff is excited about the upcoming school year and looking forward to getting to know your child. We have many fun and interesting activities planned for this year! “I Am Special” will be our first theme of the year. We will then move into a “Fall” theme where we will discover some of the unique things that happen at this time of year. Each theme is explored through a variety of stories, crafts, gym activities, songs and fingerplays. Our special day this month will be Orange Shirt Day on September 28th/29th leading up to National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30th). Wear an orange shirt to school that day! We will make an indigenous craft, celebrate the uniqueness of all children and focus on kindness.
We partner with the organization I’m For Kids Team which provides support to preschoolers in the areas of speech and motor skills. Your child is eligible for this screening if he/she turned three by December 31, 2020, and attends 3 or 4 days/week. If your child is eligible, you will receive a screening package from us. There is no cost for the screening or services. If your child was at Tot Spot last year and completed the screening in June or August, you will not receive a package. The screening will take place at Tot Spot on September 20th and 21st. We highly recommend all eligible children participate in the screening. You may book an appointment for the screening when you return the forms. The deadline to return forms is Thursday, September 16th.
The Tot Spot newsletters will be sent to you via e-mail and posted on the website around the beginning of every month. Please watch for them and make a note of the important dates. If you do not receive the newsletter, please let your child’s teacher know. We will have a few paper copies of the newsletter available at school if you need one.
