Ms Tuyet's Class - Preschool 2

Hello, Preschool 2 families! The month of October included a lot of exploring experiences for the children. The children learned about the leaves changing, and we used teamwork to make our own apple sauce by cutting the apples into smaller pieces. The children also got to dissect the inside of a pumpkin by pulling out all the seeds, and we even got to try pumpkin seeds after they were baked in the oven. I want to thank all the parents and family members who helped participate in our Halloween party. The children really enjoyed dressing up and showing off their costumes to their classmates. For the month of November, we will be talking about friendship and promoting positive relationships wit

Ms Nicole's Class - Preschool 1

Happy Fall, Families! The trees are looking beautiful, the air is chilly and crisp, and just like that, it is already coat season. I would like to remind you that it’s that time to check your children’s cubbies and add warmer clothing. Be sure to remember hats and gloves because we are outside, no matter what Mother Nature is throwing at us. I cannot believe how fast this year is going. We are already into the month of November, and I want to start focusing on being thankful, kind, and giving. I will be sending some family activities home this month that will encourage you and your child to really connect and spend some one-on-one time together. We will also be focusing on strengthening som

Ms Nikki's Early Preschool 2

Hello! I am Miss Nikki, and I’m so excited about being your child’s new teacher. I have been taking care of children for over 17 years and love what I do. In the next couple of months, we will begin to learn about our weather. November will be all about the changes in weather and how it makes us feel and all the colors that come in November. We will also be talking about animals and what they do in the fall and winter seasons.

Ms KK's Class - Early Preschool 1

Greetings from EPS 1! We are in full swing of the eleventh month of the year, and it's hard to believe that the year 2020 is right around the corner! So many fun things are occurring, and I can't begin to tell you the fun we are having! We have watched the leaves change from green to brown to orange and red, and of course made time for Pumpkin carving and playing outside—watching birds fly overhead looking for a warmer place to stay. So much fun goes into one day of school! After our visit to the Pumpkin Patch, we have had many conversations about where pumpkins really come from and how some are orange and some are different colors. These children are so fun. Their imaginations soar with exc

Ms Emily's Class - Toddler 4

Hello from Toddler 4! We have been moving into Fall, and we could not be more excited! Exploring pumpkins has been an exciting time for us. We have touched the pumpkin, talked about the color and different qualities, and even cut one open to explore what is inside! The kids loved it, although some were a little hesitant about what it felt like. We also got to paint our own little pumpkins that we got to take home! Our focus this month has been on improving our small motor skills and fine motor skills. We have been doing a lot of fun things like coloring and painting, tearing and cutting, paper pushing, bubble wrap, exploring in the sensory table, and doing puzzles which can all help strengt

Ms Anita's Class - Toddler 3

In the month of November, we will be focusing on the changes in the weather. In doing this we will have open ended conversations about the seasons. In class we have a song that we sing called “The Weather Song.” This song helps the children visualize all the changes in the weather and helps them identify those patterns. At the end of our song, we discuss what the weather is like each day. This helps them have a better understanding geared towards science. As always, we will have sensory play. One of the activities that we will be doing is throwing the leaves in the sky and watching them blow away. While doing this we will be boosting the children’s language by helping them explain what it i

Ms Jessica's Class - Toddler 2

Hello from T2! It seems we have skipped the fall weather and gone straight to winter. This month we have been working with the children on their self-help skills. All of our children do many tasks for themselves such as scooping their own food, washing their hands at the appropriate times, and trying to put their own clothes, shoes, and jackets on. It’s amazing to see them grow constantly. Halloween was so much fun. We loved seeing all the children dressed up. We love holidays because they bring us all together and bring so much joy. This next month we will be exploring transportation. All the children have shown interest in cars, trucks, buses, and construction vehicles. So, we are going to

Ms Amanda's Class—Toddler 1

October was a spooky fun time in T1! We had a blast painting with pumpkin shapes and playing in our orange rice sensory table. We also loved the song “Pumpkin Man” and “Five Little Pumpkins” from our iPad. It is a good way to get our kids to dance and sing. As we go into November, our focus will be on Fall and being grateful for our blessings. We will have new sensory projects and new art ideas such as painting with gourds and trying to paint with leaves. Another fun activity we are going to do is to learn a fun new poem with movement that goes along with our Fall theme. We plan to have a lot of fun this November! I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and we will see you next month!

Ms Stormee's Class - Infants 2

This month in Infant 2, we have been working on our start to science. Examples of Science in an infant classroom: the children may begin to demonstrate early scientific inquiry skills by questioning, exporting, problem solving, discovering, and examining. We have been providing opportunities to experience different properties such as cool/warm, soft/hard, and wet/dry. The children have also started to discover the motion of objects and cause and effect. We have been playing with bubbles, scarves, and flags to demonstrate the motions they make to further their discovery of the motion of objects. We have also had many sensory and art projects this month which help with their exploration of cau

Ms Michelle's Class - Infants 1

We are shifting to what seems like a very bitter cold fall season. We will still go on stroller rides and explore our outdoor spaces, weather permitting, of course. The children will need to have jackets, hats, and gloves for when we do go outside. We have been exploring with our senses: touch, taste, smell, hearing, and sight. This includes trying new foods, painting, feeling the air on our face, seeing bubbles, and much, much more! In the months of November and December, we will begin to work more on our language skills. Talking to our infants is the greatest way to bond and to model appropriate speech and back and forth conversations. We look forward to the holiday season and spending tim

Letter from the Director!

At Delaware Child Development Bartlesville, teachers are trained to make a child feel psychologically safe in their classrooms. Teachers create a classroom space and schedule that is inviting, child led, and predictable. Predictability for a child in the early years is important. When children know what to expect, they have something to look forward to that is familiar. Most importantly, our teachers are coached to model acceptance, risk-taking, and making mistakes. This scaffolds children’s abilities. Teachers foster curiosity, motivate children to learn, and minimize children’s fear of being wrong or feeling out of place. Distinguishing between instruction and verbalizing what it is you wa

Ms Jennifer's Classroom 1

Hello from Classroom 1, In the first five years of life, your child's brain develops more and faster than at any other time in their life. Children's early experiences - the things they see, hear, touch, smell, and taste - stimulate their brain, creating millions of connections. These years of a child's life are critical for development. The experiences children have in these years help shape the adults they will become. More than anything else, your relationship with your child shapes the way your child learns and develops. In fact, relationships are the most important experiences in your child's environment because they teach them the most about the world around them. Through relationship

Ms Mashaya's Classroom 2

Hello from Classroom 2, October went by in the blink of an eye! We had so much enjoyment discussing Halloween. We put lots of effort into our Halloween process art projects. Creating art with young children not only helps creative development but it also stimulates the brain. Most children enjoy a messy art experience - this allows them to freely express themselves and develop their creativity. We also loved singing Halloween songs such as Five Little Pumpkins by Raffi. While singing is lots of fun, it also encourages children to express their emotions and sharpens their ability to communicate while exercising lip and tongue movement. We were even able to experience a Halloween sensory event

Ms Mollie's Classroom 3

Hello from Classroom 3! I just want to say thank you to the families that joined us in our special activities. We love having opportunities for strengthening our relationships between the class and our families and getting to interact on a closer level. There will be more chances within the next two months if you did not get a chance to participate in October. All last month we really worked hard on self and social awareness and social and emotional development. This helped the children create and sustain meaningful relationships with their classmates and teachers. These skills show children how to express, recognize, and manage their own emotions as well as respond appropriately to other’s
