Dear Families:

Happy New Year to you all!

Hope you had a joyful and relaxing holiday break.

Although the morning temperature remains low, we will try to stay outside and enjoy the fresh air as much as we can. In the event of undesirable weather, we will practice yoga in the room and enjoy gross motor activities in the gym so that we can stay active.

In the classroom, the children will explore many new activities. Science experiments, food preparation activities, and peace sharing are some of our new activities.

We will learn about Martin Luther King Jr in our own toddler way and think about how we can love and respect each other.

Suki, Jeanne, and Janet
