TLC March Newsletter 2017
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Keep an eye out to see if our lucky Leprechaun has paid us a special visit. The Clubhouse classroom will be busy designing special traps to try and catch one.
We hoped everyone enjoyed their February vacation week. We saw quite a few families on vacation. We hope you were somewhere warm avoiding the cold weather we had here. We appreciate everyone’s patience with our decisions to be closed or delayed opening on those days we had treacherous weather. The decision is made to ensure everyone stays safe and off the roads if necessary. Our goal is to stay open but we rely on the local weather predictions, our plowing crew and the Hopkinton Police dept. to try to make the best call for everyone. Spring will be here soon.
Re-registration packets have been available. Please see your teacher for your family’s packet if you do not have one yet. Please fill out all of the information for each child as everything needs to be updated. Please return them by March 14th.
There have been quite a few illnesses reported in the center. Please make us aware of any illness to your child’s teacher. We post any communicable diseases on our bulletin board to keep families aware. The teachers and assistants have been working hard washing toys and sanitizing all other areas. Please make sure to take your child’s sleeping bag home regularly to be washed. If you have any questions on our health policies please feel free to ask.
Parents, please remember to have your personal key cards to enter the building. Our Brivo account keeps track of all entries to the building. It is important to have your child logged in to the building as well as signing them in and out every day. We thank you for your cooperation in our effort to keep everyone safe and accounted for.
Please take a look at our yummy fundraiser and get your order in. All proceeds will go to our treasured Cystic Fibrosis foundation in honor of Trish’s nephew.
Dates to remember:
- March 17th St. Patrick’s Day celebration

The Clubhouse has had a very exciting February. The themes this month were Space, The Dentist, Valentine’s and Presidents. We explored these themes through some fun crafts including marble art, cling film art, and paper plate portraits.
Some highlights this month were the Valentine’s Day party, where everyone designed their own decorative cookie, sledding after the snow storm, and baking to make George Washington cookies.
We are looking forward to March and keeping our fingers crossed for some more sunny weather!

The Little Rascals had a great month of February. We celebrated love and friendship as we learned about Valentine’s Day. The children had a wonderful time learning about the planets and our Presidents.
This month we will be making many silly projects and reading some great books to recognize Dr. Seuss’ birthday. We will learn all about healthy eating. We will then move on to St Patrick’s Day as well as weather.
The Little Rascals have been enjoying the beautiful weather and are hoping it hangs around a bit. Please make sure your child has a water bottle daily.
Please bring in either a pillowcase or a reusable store bag for your child’s sleeping bag if you have not done so already.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to speak to us about them.

As we say goodbye to February, we welcome March with plenty in store for us! This February Small Fries had fun with our Valentine’s Day Party and enjoyed making their card boxes! We also are enjoyed learning about how to keep our teeth healthy and clean! We continue to learn our shapes, colors, ABC’s and 1,2,3’s during circle time! It is important to arrive by 9:15. This way the children have time to be social with their friends and enjoy snack before we start our circle time. We want to wish Miss Nicki the best of luck on her pregnancy and Small Fries can’t wait to meet Emma Grace!
This month’s themes are:
- Silly Dr. Seuss
- Lucky Leprechauns
- Spring has Sprung
Just a reminder to parents, as begins to get warmer we still have those cold breezy morning so please continue to bring the right clothing attire with your child and please be sure to label all belongings as we know many children have the same clothing! Thank you and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
The Tiny Tots can’t wait for spring! We have been spoiled this last week and took full advantage of the weather by going outside as much as possible. Hopefully that groundhog was wrong and we will get an early spring. Please make sure your child has a complete change of clothes in his or her cubby as it can get a little muddy and we out there.
Our Tiny Tots have shown so much interest in potty training this past month. We have been going to sit on the potties multiple times each day and have done many successful potty dances, claps, and cheers. If you have any questions please ask! We would love to help and give you more details so you can have success at home as well.
Our themes for the month of March include Silly Dr. Seuss, St. Patrick’s Day, rainbows and weather, and nutrition.
Happy Spring! It’s hard to believe it’s already here. Our excitement grows as warmer days are just ahead. It is so amazing to watch how fast our babies have turned to toddlers. This month we are preparing our toddlers to transition into their new classroom. We look forward to watching them grow.
