Milestones Minutes September 2021

Curriculum Corner

It is Back to School time and we are ready for Fall learning! We will be getting to know our friends and sharing about ourselves, our unique qualities and our family and pets. Don’t forget to celebrate grandparents on Sunday, September 12th. The children love to celebrate their grandparents so be on the lookout for special gifts they may bring home to share with them. It is apple picking time so we will be looking at the different types of apples and of course have a taste test. After tasting our apples, we will graph which one we liked best and see which one is the class favorite! We will also investigate our five senses and experiment to see when one sense is taken away how it can enhance our other senses. As September comes to a close, Fall will officially begin! We are excited for cooler temperatures so we can continue to enjoy an abundance of outdoor play and learning.

Nature Nook

With Fall approaching we will be working on cleaning out our garden beds and preparing them for Fall planting. Our older classrooms, Sharks, Stingrays, Sea Turtles and Seahorses will be working on this project and the Starfish classroom will get an opportunity to visit the garden and explore the environment as well. Please keep an eye out on our Milestones Learning Center Nature Group on Facebook for pictures of the seasonal changes happening in our garden. Please remember that if your child is in one of the above classrooms they will be working in the garden and getting dirty while engaging in explorative outdoor play.

Parent Reminders

We have sent out a Fall Welcome letter to all parents through email. Please check your email to make sure that you received it and if not stop by the front desk and we will give you a copy. It was sent from our info@milestonesilm.com email.
