With Halloween on a weeknight, gentle reminder that kids with ‘Halloween hangovers’ including upset stomachs, irritability, etc will be sent home.

Potty Training

We have so many littles showing a huge interest in learning to use the potty, that we started a potty sticker chart and prize box.

To make this successful, it must be reinforced consistently at home, In addition, no button snap tops, easy on/off clothing, and pull ups at drop off help greatly. We will offer the potty at our transition times as well as reminders throughout the day.  

We are Learning...

The kids have been thoroughly enjoying our farm theme for September and the interest has held so we will be continuing that, as well as incorporating seasonal fall and Halloween fun.


Our 4’s/bigs are working hard at KRP! We are so proud of them! We have included the 3’s in the beginning of KRP with our name songs and name tracing only. It is not developmentally appropriate and will cause them frustration to be expected to have the knowledge and skills that our bigs do. Everything else in our day is preparing them to meet future academic expectations. We strongly encourage working at home on lots of self-help skill practice,  playdoh, coloring, scissor practice, lacing/fine motor work, as well as following multiple step directions .
