Happy Holidays from Kidsplace!

christmas-tree-pics-0111

Our little ones have been hard at work learning their Christmas songs, and this week they get to share them with us! Our Christmas concerts will take place at the end of this week! Please note the slightly different class times:

Tues/Thurs AM class ~ Thursday, Dec.18 at 10 am – 11 am (arrive 9:45 am)Tues/Thurs PM class ~ Thursday, Dec.18 at 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm (arrive 1 pm)Mon/Wed/Fri class ~ Friday, Dec.19 at 10 am – 11 am (arrive 9:45 am)

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your concert start time to allow us to take attendance and organize the children. Outdoor boots must left on the mat upstairs and indoor shoes worn as usual. The concerts will begin promptly, so it is important that all children are in the classroom early so they can get settled and ready to perform. You are welcome to invite guests to attend but please keep in mind that the concert is brief and space is very limited.

We expect that our concert and party will last about one hour from the beginning of our performance. Please help with some clean up before leaving to help us set up for the next class. .

Merry Christmas from the staff and Board of Directors! The school will be closed from Dec. 22 – Jan 2. Classes resume on January 5, 2015.

It was a busy week at Kidsplace! A few highlights:

  • Thank you to everyone who came to the Annual General Meeting on Monday. Your attendance and participation was appreciated. Approved minutes from all board meetings can be found in the classroom.
  • Mom’s Pantry products arrived, and we raised close to $850! Thank you everyone! Our next fundraiser will be in the New Year.
  • We had a fun-filled field trip to the Henderson library! We hope everyone had a great time!

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We would like to remind everyone who is picking up or dropping off a student to please take off their boots/shoes at the top of the stairs to help avoid slips/falls, and to keep the school clean.

Merry Christmas! {Kidsplace Featured Friday}

It’s almost here! With all of the holiday prep going on these days, things might be feeling a little frenzied. Hopefully it’s a good kind of busy though, as we take time to celebrate this special season with friends and family.

And what better way, than to enjoy a concert or two? Our little ones have been hard at work learning their Christmas songs, and this week they get to share them with us! Read on for all of the important details!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside! {Kidsplace Featured Friday}

Z and S sled for KP

I’ve discovered my son loves to shovel. This works very well in my favour, given the dump of snow we had this past week! He and his buddies are all about playing outside, making tracks and snow castles and sledding and getting otherwise covered in the white stuff. I say anything that wears off that pent-up pre-Christmas energy is a great thing! We’ll continue to celebrate the cold and snow this week (Dec. 2 – 6) at Kidsplace with our Polar Animals theme!

For some fun Polar Animals websites to visit, and a bit of info about our upcoming Christmas concerts, just read on!

Christmas Cheer All Over the Place {Kidsplace Featured Friday}

Yes, I realize it’s actually Saturday morning…but we got distracted last night putting up our Christmas tree, and Featured Friday got the ol’ procrastination treatment! Is your tree up and ready to go? Do you put out presents before Christmas? (We don’t…they would be in bad shape three weeks from now!)

This week (December 3-7) marks the start of our CHRISTMAS theme at Kidsplace! This will be the theme until our Christmas break, and the teachers have lots of fun activities planned.

In the meantime, check out this cute idea for making Reindeer Treat Bags (a good idea for giving holidays treats and cookies as fun gifts!)
