Featured Staff of the Month!

Kerrigan Chesney has been employed at Little Stars since September 2017.  She currently works in the Green Room but has been in other toddler rooms.


Lavender Room News:

Last month, we had no transitions to the purple room! Crazy right? But, soon there will be a few switching over. We do have a new baby starting this month, Cecelia. We can’t wait to meet you and to see how your first day at Little Stars will be!

It is October! Every fall, we do picture day at Little Stars so if you want any more information about that, you can talk to Rhonda or Lauren at the front desk.

Also, there will be a dress up week towards the end of the month. We love to see what the babies dress in that week so if you want to participate, that would be so fun!

If any of you have extra plastic bags, we would love to have some. We go through quite a bit of them every day so having a lot really helps!

Purple Room News:

I hope everyone had a good start to fall last month. Last month we worked on getting to know everyone and also worked on being kind to our friends. With the weather cooling down I want to ask parents to go through there kiddos extra clothes to make sure they are good to the season. Also bring in any sweatshirt or hats as it tends to get chilly sometimes when we go for morning walk.

This month we will be doing some fun Halloween art making our classroom festive and spooky. We will also be working on being kind to our friends using gentle touches and sharing toys. As well as working on our sign language and movement.
