February 2018

Dear Parents,

It’s February already. The time is going so quickly and the children have been busy with all sorts of things. I love visiting the classrooms and watching all the learning going on. And through their play, they’re learning so many things. Did you know that through play, children learn to interact with others, develop language skills, recognize and solve problems, and discover their human potential? In short, play helps children make sense of and find their place in the world. It lays a foundation for learning and academic success and is proven to aid in their physical development, academics, and social and emotional learning. And play is fun. So we make time for play, everyday. It’s fun…and fundamental. We have some upcoming events taking place that I’d like to share with you. Our classroom Valentine’s Day parties will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday; Feb. 13 th & 14 th . Look for more information on the bulletin boards outside each classroom. We will be celebrating Chinese New Year on Thursday and Friday, February 15 th & 16 th complete with my homemade fried rice (made it last year and received some good reviews) and some books about Chinese New Year. Did you know it’s the Year of the Dog? Our annual Children’s Art Show for parents will be taking place on Friday March 2 nd at 7:00pm upstairs in our social hall. Come join us for some yummy hors d’oeuvres and wine and beautiful art.

Picture Days with Irvin Simon Photographers will be on Monday and Tuesday March 12 th & 13 th am & pm. More information as it gets closer.

Camp information/Registration forms will be coming out shortly hopefully in the next week. Camp will begin on Monday June 4 th . Camp will run for 8 weeks for the 3’s and for 10 weeks for the 4’s and 5’s. Parents can choose 3 or 5 days a week to attend and the camp hours are 9:00am-12:00pm. We have different themes each week and the teachers here at CP are here for camp as well. We always have a lot of fun.

Fundraising Committee had their first meeting on January 24 th . Thank you to all the moms who have volunteered to help. It’s a wonderful event for a great cause. Our fundraiser proceeds help with our music, gymnastics and Spanish programs along with new equipment/furniture etc. that we may need. And it’s a lot of fun. More details to come as we progress with the planning. SAVE THE DATE: the Fundraising Committee is planning a fun “Moms Night Out Bingo and Shopping Night” on Wednesday, March 21 st upstairs in the social hall. We’re gathering some great prizes, including a free week of camp here at Creative Playtime. We’re arranging for vendors to come to sell their items so if anyone knows of anyone who would like to set up a table, please let me know. We will be serving food and wine as well. Last year’s “Moms Night Out” was a great success as I’m sure this year’s will be.

Our Enrichment Programs (yoga, dance, soccer, drama, literacy) for the winter session are underway and going well. In addition, we have a new program for infants and toddlers; Mommy & Me with Musical Munchkins. It takes place on Wednesday mornings from 9:15-10:00am upstairs in the social hall. It began on Wednesday, 1/24 however if anyone is interested, you can still join the class. Call for details 914-771-7000 or email at info@musicalmunchkins.com
