We are always finding fun, new ways to keep your children, and you, engaged! Below is a calendar with all our events for the month along with some brief explanations of each activity.
Conferences: Parents are encouraged to sign up for conferences to discuss their child’s development and get any questions you may have answered.
Community Helpers Week: This is a CCB in school event for all children and teachers. Think of people who make your community a better place – who are the people who come to mind? These will be people who have occupations that make life better for all around them. The policemen and policewomen who keep our communities safe, the doctors and nurses who help us all stay healthy, the teachers who help students learn, the postal carriers who deliver mail come rain or snow- these are people in professions that directly impact the lives of others. The people in professions or occupations that deliver a service that makes our lives easier or better are the community helpers. (http://www.teach-nology.com/themes/social/comm) Each classroom will plan fun, age-appropriate Community Helper theme activities for the children to engage in.
Stay-n-Play: This is an in-school even for parents and children at pick-up time. Parents are encouraged to STAY and PLAY at the end of the day with their children and enjoy Theme related activities prepared by teachers.
Pumpkin/Gourd Patch: This is a parent-child event at pick-up time. At CCB we have designed our curriculum to be developmental, inclusive and to expose the children to a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We celebrate the holidays in ways that are meaningful and appropriate for this setting. We focus on what is common and seasonal and greatly de-emphasize the commercial aspects of the holiday. Pumpkins and gourds are seasonal symbols for fall. Providing parents an opportunity to engage in the experience of visiting a pumpkin patch, choosing a pumpkin/gourd, and discussing their experience, creates a lasting memory that benefits the child’s social, emotional, language, self-help and motor development.
