Our party was a huge success. Many people joined us to celebrate 30 years of working with children. We received certificates from the Federal and Provincial Government, the County of Simcoe and the City of Orillia thanking us for our valuable contribution to the community.
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……
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.
Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility, they move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. When their movement becomes consciously structured and is performed with awareness for its own sake, it becomes dance (National Dance Education Organization, 2005).
