\r\n\r\nThe year is off to a great start! Many of the toddlers have begun to settle in and\r\nthey are enjoying getting to know each other and their environment.\r\n\r\nDuring the month of October, we will be focusing on the theme \u201cHarvest Time\u201d. We will be learning about fruits, vegetables, farms and animals that are found on farms. Be prepared to hear many songs, stories, and finger plays from your toddler about this theme.\r\n\r\nWe would like to take the time to thank parents for labeling all of your child\u2019s clothing and footwear. Often they do not recognize their outdoor shoes or coats at this time of the year, and the labels make it easier for us to help them identify their clothing and footwear when going outside for a nature walk.\r\n\r\nDuring the fall, we often have some rainy days. The best type of footwear for your toddler to wear outside after a rain is rubber boots as sometimes our playground can become wet and muddy\u2013this also means they can splash in the puddles!\r\n\r\nWe hope you have a wonderful and relaxing upcoming Thanksgiving weekend with your family and friends.
