October News

Greetings Berry Patch Families and Friends!  Wow!  We are so excited to be back together in school and are having so much fun this fall.  Observing the children as they arrive each day has been a beautiful reminder of how we really were created to be social beings!  Children have adapted very well to some of our new check in and health screening procedures.  They seem to be enjoying every minute of reconnecting with friends and making new ones, engaging with creative classroom activities, exploring the garden area outside, having fun in the gym or on the playground and getting to know their teachers.  And our teachers are loving every minute of getting to know your little ones and are working hard to help them start the year with enthusiasm and joy!

Due to the pandemic health guidelines we are following, our calendars and activities look pretty different this fall with no large group events, field trips, Afternoon Adventures and partnerships!  It is our hope that we will be able to reintroduce those activities one day soon.  Until there, here are a few things to put on your calendars:
