Holiday Message & Christmas Traditions

We want to thank all the parents for their consistent communication with us at the daycare.

We are working together to keep everyone at our daycare happy and safe.

As many of you saw today we have our Christmas tree at the front entrance.
The children and teachers will be making decorations for our beautiful tree.

They have already been having fun in their groups decorating their rooms. We do realize we started early this year, but we all needed something to keep spirits up.

We will try our best to take some pictures and have them on the TV (at the screening area) for your viewing.

Teachers are trying their best to touch base with you at least once a week, either in person or by a phone call.

Christmas Traditions   

International Buffet

It has been our tradition to host an International Buffet every year on the same day that Santa visits our Daycare and visit with the children.

Traditionally we ask that each family bring in something that represents their own culture. Children enjoy feeling that they have contributed to their buffet that they participate in.

We at the centre traditionally provide the Turkey dinner and the families would bring in a side dish or dessert.

As we face these pandemic times we have been struggling with how to celebrate safely and yet make families feel that they are a part of the event.

We have come up with an idea that would require your participation:
If all families could provide a recipe that is culturally theirs, we would then try and put it together for families to share.

If the recipe is one that is child friendly we may even be able to try it out at the daycare for all children to taste.

This is a new idea and would need your participation. Please make sure that all recipes are in by December 9th 2020

On December 24th we will be celebrating Christmas here at the daycare.

We will have our Turkey lunch and Santa will have dropped off the children their gifts ahead of time as he is very busy this year.

Holiday time is a busy and pleasant time to spend with family and friends. If you have made plans to spend time at home with your children, please inform us ahead of time allowing us to do the same for our staff.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the staff at Arpi Nursery School
