SEEDS OF EMPATHY

Another exciting event happening in our Preschool room is the implementation of the Seeds of Empathy program starting in October 2015.

Seeds of Empathy is designed for Early Childhood settings to foster social and emotional competence and early literacy skills and attitudes in children three to five years of age while providing professional development for their educators.

Seeds of Empathy is unique in that it powerfully engages children experientially through a community family – an infant and parent, building on the attachment relationship demonstrated between the two.

Watch for updates monthly……

HiMama

We have now introduced a new program for documenting your child’s day called HiMama. Parents receive their child’s daily reports on their computer, tablet or smartphone.  These reports include pictures of your child’s day, food consumed, nap times and what developments your child is making through his/her play.

This application is available for Android and Apple products as a free download, so check out this amazing program at himama.com.

 

 

Temporary Relocation

The new year has begun, and  OCP is  embarking on a new adventure.  Our heating system quit on the coldest day of the year in our heritage building.  In order for the City of Orillia to repair this system we have been temporarily moved to 50 Westmount Drive North for the safety of the children and our staff.

Thank you to all of the staff and families who helped during this quick relocation.

Christmas Concert

Come one, come all…. Today at both centers we are having our Christmas Concert.  Songs, crafts and goodies to eat.  A special visitor from the north pole will be making an appearance.  See you at 3:30.
