Hello from EPS!
I would like to begin by saying I hope each family had a wonderful Christmas! Winter has arrived, so bundle up to greet Jack Frost! As we go outside daily, remember it’s okay to layer your child up for outdoor activities.
This is a great time to learn about different plants that thrive in cold weather. One plant is a Tulip. We are anxiously awaiting the sprout of the first color in Spring by Mother’s Day; we are anticipating a variety of colors! The children have surprises planned to honor their Mommy that month, and we are excited!
So many things have been going on in and around our classroom, we may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. I was fortunate enough to attend a conference in Bartlesville in November that gave some insight on how children may react to stress. At times during the winter months and holidays, we as adults may tend to forget that children can feel the hustle and bustle of the season. According to Dr. Barbara Sorrels, children may show different reactions and emotions due to the feelings of others. It’s important to have a conversation daily with your child and allow them to express their feelings. Please remember to remind them that their voice matters!
We enjoyed our Christmas sing-a-long, and the families were amazing! It’s always fun to engage with people you see coming and going daily. Everyone made our program successful, and we appreciate your support!
We are planning a happy and prosperous new year and can’t wait to see what’s in store for us. Please remember to stop in and say “Hello” as you are walking by. We love visitors!
