Friends are busy writing and coloring with the red crayon and markers. Next week we will introduce blue. Outside, we enjoy swinging and singing songs. The swing is often full of friends from all classrooms, which makes it a wonderful place to meet new friends.

Bubbles are fun in the air or in the water table! Bubbles just make everything better. Rose Room favorite activity? Water! Inside or outside, our water table is flowing with water and friends. Not only is it fun, but the children are learning lessons such as: taking turns, warm vs. cold, eye-hand coordination, pouring, and self-control (not drinking it).



Being outside also is a great way to use those muscles!  Toddlers have a strong drive to push, pull, and carry heavy objects. Often we are amazed at the heavy loads they can manage!

Sam and I will be calling this week to touchbase with each of you personally and let you know how your child is adjusting. Typically we try to call after 8 p.m. when bath time is done and your child is in bed.  If you have any questions or concerns, we will be happy to discuss them during our phone conversation.


  • We hope to see you all this Sunday at Sweet September Sundae from 2-4:30 p.m.
  • Please return your topical ointment form for sunscreen. We have a bottle of Coppertone Baby SPF 50 or you may send in your own labeled bottle.
  • No school or childcare  on Friday, October 3 for Teacher In-Service.

Thank you,

Molly, Sam and Stacey

Welcome to the Rose Room!  We are looking forward to a fun and exciting year with our new friends.

We will begin the year with color immersion in our Art Area.  This simply means we will feature one color at a time before introducing all the colors.  We are beginning the year with red.

Another area unique to the Montessori classroom is the Practical Life area.  In this area you will currently find hand transfer activities (both large and small) and pouring. We will also have food prep available in this area.  These activities will help develop eye-hand coordination, fine motor skills as well as patience.

Throughout the year we will update you on the various areas of the classroom as well as special activities.

We would like to thank you in advance for keeping goodbyes upbeat and at the door or at car line.  If you have any questions regarding car line please let us know.

Please check our blog frequently.

Thank you

Molly and Sam
