What We Are Learning

Though the weather outside doesn't seem to agree, it is spring and we are willing it to be so here at TLC! We are learning about plants, how they grow, insects, and flowers! Each classroom is enjoying their insects and watching they grow and change. If you need a little sunshine that you can't find outside, swing by your child's class to take a look at their beautiful spring art!

A Few Reminders:

As the sun begins to shine (we hope) please bring your child to school with sunscreen already applied. In addition, please provide the classroom with another bottle of your child's preferred sunscreen; labeled with their name, that teacher can reapply in the afternoons.

Please remember to bring a water bottle, labeled with your child's name, to school each day.
