This month feels like a spill over from last month.  The garden is still crushing (in the best way), pumpkins are ripening, and it feels genuinely like the season of straight up abundance.  

To echo that, we decided to make this month's theme about life on the farm...

Our garden is having a good year! It makes sense then, to have the children pull from its bounty.  One of the cool things about growing a garden and having kids harvest from it, is that they take ownership of a food they may have otherwise not touched.  They get to see...

I've had lots of kids leave my care over the last three years, but this month, one of my kiddos is leaving to go off to kindergarten.  Since he is my  first to officially "graduate", and since his departure happened to coincide with two other littles leaving my care, I...

For this month's social/emotional literacy activity, I decided to make a small ritual.  I wanted to take the concept of kindness, and push it outward out of our daycare sphere a little. 

To do this, I created a mantra of sorts.  I put down a line of painter's tape...

To be honest, I didn't write this post in May.  I'm writing it in July.  I made a goal to write a daycare blog post every month and since I missed a few, I'm retroactively catching up.  

Because summer becomes a little disjointed with vacations and campin...

This month, Joan Johnson joined our staff here at Dragonfly.  Lovingly called "Miss Joni" by the kiddos, she comes to us with a background steeped in childcare settings, and with a fresh wave of enthusiasm.  

When I interviewed Joni, one of the things tha...

Today is my grandfather's birthday.  Well, was his birthday.  He passed away almost two years ago, just a few days after his 90th.  My grandfather was one of the most influential people in my entire life.  He introduced me to the world.  He nurtured me, guided me, heal...

I like to plan field trips in the winter months.  The kids get stir crazy, as do I, and it's a way to gear the month's lesson toward a crescendo.  I knew I wanted to take the kiddos to the butterfly pavilion this winter, because its always such a warm and lovely escape...

This month at day school, we voyaged into outer space. It was my goal to at least get the kids acquainted with the planets in our solar system, and to somehow convey the mind-blowing idea that we live on a sphere that is hurtling through space along with countless othe...

This month's theme at day school is "Arctic Animals".  I figured it was seasonally appropriate (even though we've barely seen snow).  I had grandiose plans of making lots of crafts having to do with arctic animals, but I didn't make it to the craft store before the sch...
