Summer Fun!

Our summer outings are in full swing, we have already gone on the rides at Calaway Park, paddled around the Glenmore reservoir in dragon boats, swam and made sand castles at Sikome Lake and splashed away at the Glenmore water park! Oh and we can't forget the fun we had at our 5th annual Stampede Breakfast, YEEHAW! Hope everyone is having a great summer so far and enjoying the heat.

Safety City

 Last week we went on our final outing for June, we went to Safety City. First, we gathered inside where the instructor talked to the kids about the signs and lights of the road and taught them the proper way to safely cross the street. Next we went outside to the miniature town where the kids got to practice being a pedestrian and being a safe "driver" on tricycles. Afterward we had a special visit from Simon the Safety Bear!

Hello Summer!

Can you believe it is almost July! With the coming of summer, we are excited to share the new classroom themes with you. For the summer months each classroom has a different theme, there is a dinosaur room, a beach room and a camping room. Each room has a variety of activities, games and toys to keep the kiddos engaged and motivated!

First, let's check out the campground...

 Now let's head to the beach...

Finally, let's take a walk in the prehistoric park...

Police Visit with Officer Patty!

Last week, police officer Patty came to STA and gave a presentation on what police officers wear, what they do and how they help people. During her presentation, the kids got to try on her police hat and see her police badge.  As well, the kids had the opportunity to take turns sitting in her police vehicle. It was a lot of fun!

The Lovely Letter L

The focus this week during Letter Time was the letter L.
Here are some of the fun activities that we did:

We made a Llama for craft
We built the letter L out of blocks

We made a lava lamp together as a group 

We also watched a fun video about the letter L.
While watching the video we practiced doing lunges and leg lifts!

Visit to the Doctor's

For most of our kiddos, going to the doctor's can be a painful experience and involve the doctor touching their face or skin which can be very stressful. It's important for our kiddos to practice going to the doctor's when they are not sick or hurt to ensure their future visits are positive!

This week, we practiced going for a doctor's visit. We went to the Child Development Centre (CDC). We all waited in the receptionist area and then one by one the kids were called to go see the doctor. Each visit was unique to the child but for the most part the "doctor" (one of the wonderful employees at CDC) exposed the kids to everything they would experience in a typical doctor's visit.
