First Week

What a lovely week! The first class, of the first day, one little sweetheart had a bit of separation anxiety that I (thankfully) managed to divert fairly quickly. Other than that, all the classes have gone beautifully- happy, sweet, outgoing and wonderful little ones whom I can’t wait to watch grow! We have done all the housekeeping lessons- where things are, where things go, bathroom etiquette, snack and clean up routines- setting up activities and taking them down again. It has been a very busy week, I have dropped into bed each night this week by about 9 pm- I am hoping for all my parents sake that all their little ones are also worn out by the end of the day!

I have spent the last 4 hours online booking & checking out field trips for the 2011-2012 year- we will have a couple of tried and true ones, as well as some exciting new places to go.

How did your week go? Were the children excited to come to school? And excited to come back next time? Were there things you loved? And things you liked not so much? Remember that the little yellow journals that travel back and forth are for all of us- you, me, and your children. If I haven’t put anything of note in yours for a couple of days- its just because we have been too busy! But I will try my best to write in it weekly and let you know what we have been up to.

Welcome back to all my returning families- I am amazed and thrilled by how grown up everyone has become over the summer- and welcome to all the new families. I hope if you have any questions or concerns or suggestions, you feel free to share them with me.

Have a lovely weekend! Follow @handinhand on Twitter and get updates on fun events for kids and families around Calgary.
