HOPPING FOR MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY



Last week, the Tawa gang participated in a hop-a-thon session for Muscular Dystrophy.
The out-of-school care children watched a movie which educated them about Muscular Dystrophy. Staff shared information about this topic with the younger children and everybody decorated their own bunny hats.
Children were proud to wear their hats and hopped around the room. The parents collected $320.00 for this organization. Bravo  Tawa parents! You guys are the best always.


SUPER HEROES COME ALIVE!



The Tawa  gang of preschoolers are fascinated by Super heroes.
Staff took this interest of the children and provided them with an art activity that everybody was excited about.
Paper towel rolls were put on the table with pots of colored paints. The gang was encouraged to paint these rolls, which were then set aside to dry. The next day children spelt the first letter of their name, which was printed for them and colored it. They also colored eyes for their super hero. On the third day, children glued the letter and the eyes and voila, a super hero was created.
By participating in this three day project, the crew learnt that some projects take time and patience to finish and the hard work is well worth it. Good going kids, keep the learning strong.

COOL DOWN ON A HOT SUMMER’S DAY





The Tawa crew of kindergartners and out-of-school care children walked down to the Millwoods Splash Park and cooled off royally.
The gang had a blast as you can witness in these pictures and then enjoyed a picnic in the grass.
A  perfect summer’s day activity that will be repeated soon.



ENTERTAINMENT COMES TO TAWA




This was a highly entertaining, interactive and musical adventure for the children to experience right at home (in our facility).
What a great performance and an even greater audience that enjoyed this performance!

FIELD TRIP TO THE LEGISLATURE

Last week, the children in our program got to visit the Legislature.
It was exciting for the babies, toddlers and preschoolers to go on the chartered yellow school bus. The weather was gorgeous and the grounds were beautiful and the children enjoyed a picnic lunch there. The lego structure was amazing and they were impressed with the pools and fountains on the grounds.
The kindergartners and out-of-school care children were able to have a tour of the building with the Legislature staff and learnt about Alberta’s rich history.
A superb field trip and we can’t wait to visit the Leg again!
