The Turkey Strut - Kindergarten Oakville

Let's talk turkey!
What a walk it's got!
Strut about, strut about,
Do the turkey trot!

Let's talk turkey,
What a shaky wobble!
Strut about, strut about,
Gobble, gobble, gobble!

Octopus Garden Science

Octopus' Garden

It started when the JK/SKs made salt dough. By adding blue sand, rocks, shells and some homemade green playdough, we created an ocean floor. We decided to join our individual sculptures together to make a shared work of art: our very own octopus garden.

Louis: Coral reef with seaweed around a rock and it's connected to little sea creatures. This is a baby sea coral.

Lily: Mine is close to his. There are rocks and one little person is in here. He lives in a cave but I don't know where he is. Oh, I found him!

Octopus Garden Science 2 - Childcare Center Oakville

Olivia: The waves are going really fast. The fish are running away. There is a storm. 

Sofi: Mine is an animal living on a rock. He can eat seaweed. 

Mahsaib: This is a snake.

Tanya: The shells are going down in the water. The seaweed is going up. An octopus could live here.


How Much Does the Inside Really Count?

In the life of a 3 year old it's definitely not the inside that counts.  The more head forming the basket the more useless the contents. Happy Friday to all of our families and friends. Enjoy!

Outside of the Box

Forest Grove is so outside of the box that we have staff that is willing to be put inside one.

The 5 W's

The five W

At Forest Grove we work hard to engage children in open ended dialogues that spark questions. By approaching situations with the 5 W’s we probe thought and give children the opportunity to dig deeper into the subject at hand.

Have you ever asked your child about their day at Forest Grove using the 5 W’s?

   In between paint and paste it’s easy to forget just how profound preschool can be.
