Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Little Feet Home Preschool. I can’t wait to see what big steps your little ones take this year. Since our class is getting older, I’m excited to plan some more organized activities for them to expand their exploration and learning through play.
Some units I hope to teach this year include: the Farm, Dinosaurs, Space, Fairy Tales + Nursery Rhymes, Gardens, Construction Zone, Ocean Life, and (Super)heroes. We will start introducing ABC’s and continue early math skills like counting and shape recognition.
Each week we will do arts & crafts, music & movement, story time, and other activities based on our theme for the month.
And don’t worry, there will still be plenty of time for free play!

REQUESTS & REMINDERS If you have any supplies for crafts such as: paper, stickers, glue, felt, markers, etc. or daily supplies like: tissues, baby wipes, cleaning wipes, hand sanitizer, etc., that you would like to donate to the daycare, I would greatly appreciate it.
As you know, Ms. Shelby will be leaving us. ☹ Her last day will be August 28th. I will be hiring two new assistants to join our Little Feet family. They will be starting on September 4th.
THE MONTH AHEAD Our first monthly theme for this year is “The Farm.” We will turn parts of our play space into a barn for dramatic play. Students will learn about animals, tractors, and the foods we get from the farm. We will be starting a small edible garden in the back yard for the kids to grow some of their own food. They already love eating the figs, oranges, and tomatoes that we grow. If you have any plants or seeds you’d like to contribute, I’d be happy to use them.
For our projects we’ll be needing the following materials if you have any to share:
Construction paper Apples Farm Stuffed Animals
Felt Bubble wrap
Plastic eggs Cotton balls
Toy tractors Toy barns
Glue Tape Washable paints
Thanks in advance for your contributions😊😊 You have all been wonderful families to work with, and I’m looking forward to another great year.
Thank you, Ms. Kristin
