Earth Day

Dear parents,

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: 

Best regards,

Insh'allah this 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.
Role modelling also helps teach children to be caring and clean, we will focus on good manners while eating at the table this week.
Dear parents,
It 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.

I wanted to do express my thanks to all Mac Preschool and Childcare parents. I appreciate everything you have given the childcare and especially the big difference you have truly made in our school's program when you began to involve more in our daily activities. I want to assure you that by this participation, you will give your child some of the sweetest memories in her/his life.
Being an outstanding parent is a big challenge for all of us.
Special Thanks for Dr. Sherazi for her time spent telling the children wonderful stories and puppet show. Also Dr. Shariff for the small workshop for the children that will be taking place on Friday Dec 7th, 2012 about "how to clean your teeth!". Last but not least, I want to thank Sister Hadia (Layan's mother) for her kind acts and always being there to help!

Again, I greatly appreciate your generosity.

Stand Up! (to Bullying)

This week is the Stand Up! (to Bullying) at Abraar school and the daycare. During the week we will focus on this theme. Some people may still wonder:
Does bullying really exist among young children? The answer is a clear yes. Some teachers and parents may still wait for this confirmation. Our goal this week is to raise awareness for the teachers, parents and children. We will observe the children from different angles and analyze their behaviours. The purpose is also to make the children feel that we are always there to help, assisting the children to be brave and how to stand up for his or her self such as a loud "Leave me alone!" can do wonders.
Parents, please tell the teachers if you feel that your child is uncomfortable. Teach your child to tell the teacher and make it a goal to build up his/her confidence.

Kind advice to the parents and staff:

Add five minutes to the beginning of your daily schedule so that you can be more relaxed throughout your day.

Also, check with your childcare provider about your child’s favourite activities and interests so that you can get more knowledge about your child.

Let’s be a part of the team:


Parents + Educators + Children

I invite you to share some of your hobbies and skills to enrich our program.
How you may ask? You are able to share your favourite storybook! Any family or cultural stories, food, clothing, Islamic songs, or art work that you could share with the children and the daycare is welcome! If you have further suggestions please feel free to share. It is good to have a parent interact in their child's and the other children's daycare to make it as fun and interactive as it can be.
