Dear Merryhill Families:
April promises to be a super exciting month! We are going to be so busy celebrating April Fool’s Day, Week of the Young Child, Earth Day, and doing lots of gardening!
The week of the Young Child will be celebrated here at the school April 4-8 with five fun-filled, themed days to celebrate of our youngest learners! The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration hosted by NAEYC to spotlight early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities. Our goal is to spread the word about the importance of high-quality early learning, and the critical role early childhood educators play in a child’s development and learning.
As we prepare for the upcoming fun and activities that will take place during the Spring, we ask that you make sure to keep extra clothes in your child’s cubby and to double check if they are weather-appropriate as we move to warmer days. There will be many outdoor activities, and children may get wet from time to time. We want to make sure to keep them dry & clean (for the most part) after some messy projects take place.
