September Preschool Newsletter
Sunshine House Preschool Newsletter
September is traditionally a month of beginnings. New children have joined our program, replacing the kindergarteners we said good-bye to. Over the summer we have transitioned our children into their older groups and higher learning demands…they are ready! We know you will share our excitement and enthusiasm as we progress through the year!
Our main emphasis this month will be on self-awareness and self-esteem. We will be learning about our unique and special bodies, families, and names. We will share things that each of us can do and things we can learn to do, things that we like and dislike, and many other things that make us unique.
