February already!  Happy Valentine’s Day.

We have lots going on this month. In addition to our regular fun activities, there will be a few specials.  Matt the Music Man will be coming. Last year was the first time Matt visited our school.  The children loved him so much, we hope to have him visit us every year.  We will also have our Dental program, Howard this Horse, come for a visit. This has been an Abby's tradition for many years. It is a fun, age appropriate way for the children to learn about dental hygiene. We will also be celebrating Valentines Day.  It is a month full of fun, fun, fun.

Two Year Old Classes

The children are settling in nicely and continue to make new friends.

They are having fun making projects, singing songs and listening to stories

Three Year Old Classes

The teachers are delighted with the socialization skills the children have developed.  In September, the majority of them were either into isolated or parallel play; now they are interacting with each other and having fun.

We continue to work on our alphabet art series.  The children love the “magic box”  This fun, age appropriate, activity helps the children identify what letter an object starts with.  It also gives us an opportunity to introduce new, unfamiliar words to help build their vocabulary. 

We continue to work on numbers 1-5.

Four Year Old Classes

The boys and girls have made new friends and are learning the fine art of cooperation, sharing and taking turns.  Once a week the four year old children will be writing their names on lined paper.  Each day they are getting more and more ready for Kindergarten!!

The four year old classes will begin Show & tell this month.  Each child will have an opportunity to talk about their special toy, picture or drawing in front of their classmates.   Please remember to bring something each week.  Talking in front of their classmates will help to promote self-confidence in your child.  Please use discretion on which toys your child brings to school.  Be sure it is age appropraite and nothing too big please. No superhero weapons etc...


We began working on are Spanish program in January.  In addition to introducing a second language to the children, the Spanish program helps to build their listening skills.

Valentine’s Day Party  (Check calendar for date)
If your child wants to exchange Valentine's Day cards with their classmates, please have them sign the cards. Make sure you have enough for each child in the class.  It is not necessary to address each card on the outside of the envelope. The teachers will make sure that everyone gets a card.
