Lavender Room News:

December snuck up so fast this year!  This month all of our friends are staying with us and we will be welcoming new friends in!  Madilynn will be joining our room and we are so excited to watch her grow.

Last month in the Lavender Room we spent the month celebrating Thanksgiving.  This month we will be focused on Christmas!  Throughout the month of December we have lots of Christmas arts and crafts to decorate our room for the holidays.  We will also be reading books about Reindeer, Santa and Snowmen.

As the weather continues to get colder, please make sure to bring in warmer extra clothing for your child.  Also, Please remember to stay behind the bouncers in our classroom as our babies learn to crawl and play!

Stay warm this Christmas!

Purple Room News:

November was an exciting month in the Purple Room! The theme of our room was “Thanksgiving and Family”, so we incorporated family photos into our circle time and squeezed in a Thanksgiving craft. We got to enjoy a few more days on our playground and going on buggy rides before the snow fell, and we’ve been taking advantage of our muscle room in the afternoon! We also welcomed Miles, Vera, and Alice from the Lavender Room!

During the month of December, the theme of our room will be “Holiday Fun”. We plan to work on several Christmas projects throughout the month and introduce several holiday books to our circle time. Our room will welcome a new friend, Nova, as many of our kids are approaching their transition to the Blue Room.

Please make sure that your child has appropriate clothing to go outside (jacket, socks, shoes, etc.)! Infants go outside when it is above 30 degrees, so on those warm days we will try to get outside!

Thank you all for another great month! If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Blue Room News:

Last month in The Blue Room, we celebrated Thanksgiving. Check out our art projects that we made throughout the classroom and on our bulletin board. We also read books about Thanksgiving and talked about it at circle time. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

This month, we will celebrate Christmas. We will do a lot of Christmas art, read stories about Christmas, focus on the colors red and green at circle time, and more. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

As always if you have any questions, let us know!

Green Room News:

Happy December Green room friends and family! We had a spectacular month last month and enjoyed spending the last warm days playing outside! We did lots of fun art projects and enjoyed crunching up leaves in our sensory table! We’ve been working super duper hard on our shapes and all that hard work is paying off! We are phenomenal at counting and colors too! Of course we are still going to keep working on all of those things because there is always room for more learning!

This next month we are so excited to read all of our winter books and enjoy our winter themed sensory table! We are starting off with red and Green Pom poms and we love them! Or…throwing them 🙂 the more fun the better! We have already started to do some winter themed crafts and have a lot more planned too! We’re still going to work hard on getting our shapes, colors and counting down so we can show off our skills for the holidays!


  • No peanuts
  • With winter here we ask everyone has hats, gloves, coats and snow pants so we can enjoy playing outside when we can
  • Please check cubbies for papers/artwork as it tends to pile up quickly
  • Please bring in weather appropriate extra clothes to keep in cubbies in case of spills/accidents
  • We are closed 12/23 and 12/26 for Christmas

As always let’s have another Fantastic month in the green room!

Any questions/concerns please reach out to Sarah or Makia 🙂


Yellow Room News:

Last month in The Yellow Room, we did a unit on families and we also celebrated Thanksgiving. Some of our activities included painting turkeys, talking about the names of our parents and siblings, reading Happy Thanksgiving, Biscuit! by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, and more. We also said good-bye to Zaxton, Zaylee, and Antonio and we welcomed Zion from The Green Room and Bryson who is new to the center. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

This month, we will celebrate both Christmas and the new year. It looks to be a very fun and exciting month!

As always, If you have any questions, let us know.

Stay safe and healthy!

Red Room News:

Hello red room families! This last month we practiced writing our names, counting to 50, and working on our letters. In November, we spent a lot of time with our Orange room friends and had a few of them transition to Red Room. Last month we said hello to Payton, August and Archer.

This month we are going to start focusing on our lower case letters and being able to identify them. We are also going to start working on our cutting skills and scissor safety. We are continuing to work on adding members to our zipper club! In

December we will also be focusing on different  holiday activities. This is including a day of making gingerbread houses, so keep an eye on for information on that! We will be making some fun fall art projects and playing new games.


Please keep a couple extra pairs of clothes in your child’s cubby in case of accidents and spills!

Please make sure that your child has snow pants, boots, hats, waterproof gloves and a winter coat here everyday as we go outside everyday that we can!

Rainbow Room News:

December got here fast! Good luck to Isabella Burgess at her new school. Her friends and Little Stars will miss her. We also hope Rebecca has a good time this month in Africa. Bring us back some warm weather.

This month we will keep up on learning how to write our letters and more numbers. We are becoming masters at it. This month becomes challenging, with Staff and families being gone for the holidays, so please try to let us know when you will be gone. It really helps with planning.

I hope everyone has a wonderful end to the year and I look forward to a great New Year with everyone.
