As we all know, books are the key to nourishing a child's
learning in every aspect. Our main focus this month is trying to keep our
lovely books in good condition. Help us reach our goal by reminding the
children to treat the books with care! There is no better treasure than the
books a child can read.
Reading to your child or having
your child read to you has tremendous benefits such as spending quality time
together, increasing your child’s vocabulary, introducing him/her to the
wonderful world of books… the benefits are too numerous to name them all here.
“Read With Me” is a yearly library program that is geared towards
daycare, preschool and grade 1 students. The program will start Monday, February 4,
2013 and will finish Sunday, April 14, 2013,
We welcome you all
back from the holidays and hope that you all had a great time with your
in the process of scheduling a time every month for a group of the
preschoolers to have a computer lab time inshallah.
– circle time and other activities around the room will be relevant to
this theme to help enhance the children to learn about winter. Various
books about snow, sensory play with snow, art activities, and many other
learning opportunities will be implemented in the environment. Children
will learn that winter is a cold season, white snow, the different things
we have to wear in order to stay warm, and etc.
Winter Animals – this theme will
be implemented in the environment to help the children to understand about
the different animals that are considered winter animals. Children might
learn about the different characteristics that these animals have so that
they are able to live in such cold weather, and what they look like (polar
bear has thick fur to stay warm). They might also learn about the
different things they do or eat.
Islamic learning – at circle time we will recite surat
Al-Fatiha and surat
Al-Falak each time and the Duaa before sleeping.

I am happy to introduce the new
theme of December; Nature and Caring for the environment. We are now focusing
on engaging the children to take action and help their environment. Through the
support of staff and parents, they will learn about conserving water and
electricity and the beautiful planet we live in. For ideas, worksheets and
more, visit the EcoKids website at:
week we will focus on the different cleaning methods. We will encourage the
children to act in gentle manners and emphasize on Kids' etiquette of keeping
the place, clothes, hands, and the floor clean and tidy. This in turn will
help the child develop and practice good manners at the table.
also helps teach children to be caring and clean, we
will focus on good manners while eating at the table this week.
is never too early to begin teaching children good manners. Because the
teachers are already very good role models for them by keeping everything in
the daycare clean and fresh, I kindly ask you to work with us on these
manners while you are at home and continue our work with the children on this
topic. I guarantee your efforts will not be lost and we will come to
wonderful results based on this theme insha allah.
