I hope everyone has had a relaxing and restful winter break, I know I have! Spent time with family, eating lots of great food, relaxing by the fireplace, and playing lots of Trivial Pursuit with the kids. Now it’s time to get back to it!
Classes begin again on Monday January 8th. For this term, we have classes every day Monday through Friday with the exception of Family Day on Monday February 19th. Our Spring break begins on March 23rd.
The first few days in January are spent getting back in the groove of routines and reviewing what we accomplished from September to December- then it’s onward and upward! Assessments will begin towards the end of January so we can see if there are any gaps in learning that we can then fill before the end of June.
Classes continue much the same as before the break- gymnastics 3 times a week, and yoga and meditation daily in addition to our regular activities. We will continue to work through the Montessori methods in language development, mathematics, sensorial and practical life.
We will need a couple of volunteers willing to take children into the other quiet room to do assessments come the end of January, so if you are able to do so, let me know. We also need some play dough! 🙂
Very much looking forward to seeing everyone next week- its been a lovely vacation but I miss all those little faces!
