Daycare Dialogues

 

…in the midst of a class conversation about the zoo….

Boy, 2.5 years old: Miss Emma, how about you ask me if I’ve been to the zoo?

Miss Emma:  Have you been to the zoo?

Boy: Nope, but I have been to the museum.

Miss Emma: What was that like?

Boy: You have to be very quiet, (whispering) because people are sleeping.

Let it No, Let it No, Let it NO!

The Daycare Dialogues:
Outside, the first snow of the year was falling.
The daycare children were mesmerized by the mysterious substance, but one 2-year-old boy was getting particularly vocal about it.

Boy: (directed at the falling flakes) NO!
Teacher 1: It’s alright, Buddy, it’s just snow.
Boy: (emphatically) NO!! NO!!
Teacher 1: Don’t worry, it won’t hurt you.
Boy: (very loudly) NO NO NO NO NO!!!
Teacher 1 (worried, to Teacher 2): He’s taking the snow so personally, he keeps telling it to stop!
Boy: No!
Teacher 2: Oh, do you think maybe he’s trying to say suhh-no (i.e. snow)?
Teacher 1 (laughing): Oh. That would make a lot more sense!

Happy Holidays!

America’s Favorite *Holiday* Pastime

The dress up bin at Studio Daycare has an assortment of options for the children to try on, including grown-up sized baseball hats.  Last week one of the girls picked out a hat, put it neatly on her head, went into the corner, and started singing to the wall, “O come all ye baseball!”  She proceeded to make up new baseball-themed lyrics for the entire song!  It never ceases to amaze us how differently kids experience the world and how enchanting their unfiltered creativity can be.

Tote of Toys!

Our Sitter Studio® totes, filled with art supplies and games, are one of kids’ favorite things about having an artisitter® caregiver come for a sitting appointment. We start the totes off with a few fun supplies, and then each artisitter® customizes them with toys, games and art supplies selected for the season and the child.

One of our artistiter® caregivers recently posted this wonderfully cute picture of the supplies in her tote: String, paper, paint, crayons, a book and the coup de gras: Toilet paper tubes!  It looks like she and the kids are going to have a great time.
