Dear Discovery Isle Parents,
We hope this new year finds you in good health and that you enjoyed your time among family and friends. We wanted to say thank you for your thoughtful treats and warm wishes that we were showered with during the holiday season. We are so grateful to have such caring parents.
December brought us lots of activities. We were excited to purchase the awnings over our classroom doors. These provide shade from the sun and coverage on those rainy days. We also had artificial grass replace on the infant and toddler playground. Thank you for your patience during the construction period. During the month of December many of the classrooms put on small shows or activities for parents to attend. We had a great turn out each night. The children and teachers did a great job. We appreciated all of the patience as parking became limited each night of a show.
We also wanted to say thank you for all of your PJ donations. We were overwhelmed with so many donations and with such a variety of sizes. We took them to the Isabella’s gift organization the weekend before Christmas and received heartfelt gratitude for them.
You may have also noticed that our teachers have been working hard in creating centers for children to explore and learn. In our home living centers teachers have created more “real” like atmospheres. In our Jellyfish room the teachers created a chimney and “wood” logs for the children to pretend to make a fire with. In our Sea Turtles room the teachers created a winter scene complete with street lamps for the children to pretend to go shopping around the store fronts. We encourage you to explore your child’s classrooms to see what each center has to offer.

We look forward to the new year with all of our wonderful families!
