Learning through play

Play is an integral part of any child’s Early Years and supports their learning journey.

Learn through play

Through the power of play young children develop their language skills, emotions, creativity and social skills.

Play nurtures the imagination and gives children a sense of adventure. Through play, they learn essential skills such as problem solving, working with others, sharing and much more.

Day Care Children Playing

Talk. Listen. Play.

Children talk and listen while they play.
Encouraging communication during play provides the opportunity to develop speech, language skills and listening skills.

Imagine. Inspire. Pretend.

Practice Summer Saftey!

Summer Safety Day care

Consider the importance of protecting your children safe this summer.

Sun Rays

Protect your children from the sun. The sun’s rays reflect off of the sand, water and other reflective surfaces. To help prevent UV damage along with using sunscreen, hats and sunglasses will also play an important role.

Insects & Bugs

Protect Against Bugs Using insect repellent to guard against potentially disease carrying mosquitoes (West Nile) and ticks (Lyme Disease) and other viruses.

Plenty of Fluids

Prevent dehydration – especially when playing sports, it’s important to take plenty of water breaks.

Protect their Heads

Don’t Forget the Helmet – wearing a helmet whenever children ride anything with wheels, such as a scooter, bicycle, or roller skates will reduce the risk of injury to their head.

By the Poolside

Guard Against Drowning – if your child will be near a swimming pool, it is crucial to have multiple safety measures in place to keep them safe.

Supervise with all your attention – any cell phone activity, no matter how short, takes your attention away. A child can put their face in the water and be disoriented in seconds, not knowing which way is up.

The number of accidental drownings are alarming, with an average of 3,600 children injured in near-drowning incidents per year.

Woodland Childrens Day Care would like to remind you to practice safety and enjoy your summer!

Thank you to the parents!

Many of our children are leaving our sanctuary this week to go on to JK, spend the summer at home or are moving away.

Thank you to the parents for your thoughtful gifts, cards and words of acknowledgment.

It means a lot:

For all your patience day to day,

For every tear you wiped away,

For “little hands” you gently hold,

And all the stories you have told,

For your consoling, tender heart,

And all the wisdom you impart,

For  silly songs & quiet times,

For peaceful naps & nursery rhymes,

For teaching children how to share,

For being kind & being fair,

For every shoe that you have tied,

And thoughtful; words that instill pride

For all the sweet things that you do,

To help the children all year through,

For being there in place of us…..

We’re grateful and we’ll always be!
