Making Falooda - Yummy!




The Out-of-School Care children were involved in making Falooda, a delicious Indian/Pakistani beverage which they enjoyed for snack on a warm, winter afternoon.
Children helped measure milk, rose water, jell,  takhmaria (basil seeds) and topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
Children enjoyed seeing the color of the rose water, which is red in color, change to pink when milk was added to it. Science is always fascinating, isn’t it?
Tasting the rose water and basil seeds was fun and a first time experience for all the children, and many of them wanted the recipe to make this beverage at home to share with the family.
Oooh, wish we could have Falooda everyday, was the sentiment heard through the room.





Winter Crafts!




The toddlers are learning about Winter Animals and a child began talking about Penguins.
So the staff offered a Penguin art activity which was enjoyed by all the toddlers.
These were later displayed on the art wall and children did the Penguin dance and the Penguin walk through the day.

Animal Fun!



Preschool children are learning about animals.
Each child picked an animal, named the animal and then was encouraged to draw pictures of the environment that the animal lives in.
It was rewarding to see children put so much thought and energy into drawing this art and beautiful pictures emerged. Children were engrossed in this activity for forty-five minutes and they talked to their friends and teachers about their creations.

Accolades!


Recently a family left our Centre and we wish to share the card and a letter from this grateful parent. The family had utilized our services for a number of years.

We hope they can visit us often and wish them good luck in the future.

Winter Art!


Happy New Year!
Children are all back from the winter holidays and are raring to go. Again, with the deep freeze that we are experiencing in Edmonton, children are busy with indoor activities as they cannot go outdoors.
They have created a lot of winter art which is gracing the walls of all the play rooms. It is good to see everybody back happy, healthy and growing so much.
Best wishes for a fantastic 2015 to you all!
