Hop Dollars-Bravo!

Tawa parents are the best!!!
We had a Muscular Dystrophy fundraiser and the final count is in - $856.00 was raised by the parents to support this organization. BRAVO.
The Tawa crew had a fantastic time learning about Muscular Dystrophy and a good deed was performed by all.
Great job, parents. We salute you!!

Earth Day!

To celebrate Earth Day (April 22), staff read the book “The EARTH Book” by Todd Parr to the preschoolers. Children enjoyed the story and came up with some good ideas about recycling and taking care of Mother Earth.
We noticed that after reading the book, our friends are careful that they are using both sides of the coloring paper and are reminding each other not to be wasteful.
The Tawa gang also learnt about the Earth by looking at the globe and learning about the land and oceans that make up our world.
To emphasize the learning, the children also planted seeds that they are going to help grow.
Good learning and we know these lessons will stay with them forever!

Nature of things!

Yesterday, an alert staff member noticed a ladybug and picked it up. She came indoors and put it in a clear container with a leaf.
This ladybug was named “Rose” by the children and they adopted it for an hour or so. Children were fascinated by how fast the ladybug was moving and how it could flip back onto its legs after it had fallen down.
Wonders of nature never cease to amaze our young minds!

Having fun on a sunny spring day!

We are so grateful that the weather has finally changed and maybe Spring is here to stay.
It is wonderful for the children to be outside and enjoy some sunshine and fresh air. Children have got the opportunity now to enjoy our playground and these pictures can attest to the fact that they are very happy outside and having great fun.

Fund Raising for Muscular Dystrophy

The Tawa gang participated in our annual fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy.
Children learnt that it takes 16 muscles to jump and our bodies are made up of 350 muscles. They colored their bunny ears and made them very attractive. Their was a great celebration as they hopped with their bunny ears.
A generous donation was made by the parents of the children and this will be forwarded next week to the organization.
