Be sure to dress your little one in appropriate gear. They’ll probably need rain boots, a rain coat, and a good sweater. It’s still chilly out there! And of course, just as you can expect your child’s clothes to come home covered in half an art project, now’s the time when you may start to see pants with muddy knees, wet socks, and dirt under the fingernails.
All of this is a great part of growing up. Our teachers know that child care is about creating messes of the best possible kind. For the littlest ones, mud provides a great sensory exploration. Slightly older, and finding wriggly worms and ladybugs in our daycare’s garden becomes a thrilling discovery. And for our oldest students, spring means the chance to participate in gardening: weeding, planting, and watching a seed turn into a beautiful flower.
Spring offers a great many opportunities for our day care students, and we hope that this year will be no exception!
