Wow, another year has come and gone. The holidays have flown by. We hope you all had wonderful celebrations with family and friends and wish you health and happiness for 2017.
2016 was a wonderful year at Laurel Tree Academy. The children are learning and growing every day and we continue to receive news of expected siblings-to-be, we are truly in the midst of a Laurel Tree Baby Boom. We love to watch our Laurel Tree families grow and blossom and always are excited for new children and families to join us.
Exciting plans have already been made for the upcoming months.
January is well underway. We had our first field trip of the year to International Sports Center for our preschool classes. It’s always a good time, the children love the opportunity to run and play in the tunnels and slides. Other activities this month include a Teddy Bear Picnic, “Egg-Ship” drop and Polar Express Travel Day.We will celebrate Chinese New Year on January 27 with a lunch of Sweet and Sour Chicken (nuggets) and Ramen noodles. On January 31, the children are all asked to wear white for our “white out”. They will travel room to room enjoying Polar Express travel themed activities such as; Polar Express Train, “Snow ball fight”, Igloos, and Shaving Cream Snow. Our themes this month are New Years, Air, Land & Sea Transportation. We will explore Asian Culture and music.
Heading in to February, we are making plans for Valentines Day and our Sweetheart Dance. We will explore Africa and African culture. Our themes will be Sports, Pets and Community Helpers. February is Dental Health Month and we will have a visit from the Dentist on the 22nd. We will finish out the month with a Mardi Gras Celebration and Parade.
We have already begun planning our Summer Camp program. Look for information coming in the next month or so. We hope you can all join us for the fun!
