Welcome to Fall 2021

After a very warm and wet September and October here we are in November..

Some tips to help you transition your child to the colder weather and make their outdoor playtime comfortable and fun!

Please provide: A hat, mittens, mud pants, boots for those wet days, and a warmer jacket. By layering your children’s clothes it allows us to keep them comfortable on those days when the temperature can be inconsistent from morning to afternoon.

We have enjoyed dressing up during the last few weeks for Sports day, Fall colours day, Orange day, PJ day, Pink day, and lots of walks where we collect fall leaves to create an Autumn Collage.

In anticipation of the Christmas season and to celebrate giving: New Steps continues to participate in Samaritans Purse “shoe box” drive to help those who are not as fortunate as us in Canada. Due to Covid it is not possible to participate ‘hands on’ this year but please do share through this link: secure.samaritanpurse.ca
