AUTUMN IS HERE!



The Tawa gang of infants is certainly enjoying the change in the seasons.
They went to town on the art project in their play room. Children participated in bingo dabbing their leaves with a fall color. Staff cut up the leaves and decorated their playroom with it.
Signs of fall arriving can be seen in this active play room.

VISIT TO THE PET STORE


They enjoyed seeing all the birds and animals and were excited to see the variety of food available for the animals. During the last week of school holidays, the children were fortunate to walk to the Pet Store in a nearby shopping center.
It sure was a fun trip for the children and a good walk on a nice summer’s day.

BANANA BREAD – YUMMY!



The Out-of-School Care children recently participated in making banana bread.
It was a shock for some of them that real eggs, milk and flour were used to bake instead of a boxed cake.
The children enjoyed the experience and after it was baked, they devoured the delicious banana bread.
It had some of the children go bananas waiting for the cake to bake! All good things take time, don’t you agree?

TAWA CHEERLEADERS!



During the last week of school holidays, the Out-of-School Care and kindergarten children walked to the Grey Nuns Hospital so that they could put on a play, and did three dance performances to cheer up the Stroke/Geriatrics Rehabilitation patients, staff and visitors.
Children enjoyed the visit and found it rewarding as they noticed everybody smiling and cheering them on.
This is an exceptional opportunity for the Tawa gang to build positive inter-generational experiences that they treasure and share with their parents and the other staff members at the Center. Surely, this group of children will grow up to be empathetic and compassionate for our seniors.

COMMUNITY CLEANER-UPPERS



The Tawa crew of preschoolers and out-of-schoolers enjoyed a warm summer’s day by going outdoors to clean up the community grounds.
All the children were involved in picking up garbage to allow people to enjoy nature at its best.
A bunch of hard and diligent workers achieved the goal of a garbage-free nature zone and were rewarded with ice-cream cones at snack time.  Yeah, good work Tawa team!
