Open Enrollment Spot

One of our original sidekicks will be leaving us mid-March. Though we will miss him and are very sad to see him go, we are very excited to invite a new friend to play with us!

Since all of the other children in care are between one and two years old, I am looking to enroll another full-time toddler (or near toddler) aged child for mid-March.

Please contact me at mindyslittlesidekicks@gmail.com if you are interested in scheduling a time to meet.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Learning About Family

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the sidekicks are learning about family this week. We created interactive family trees using paper towel rolls, yogurt containers, and popsicle sticks that allow the kids to use their small motor skills to move the branches from slot to slot on their trees.

We will also be adding photo cubes that will be filled with pictures of family members to our circle time routine to encourage recognition of familiar faces and verbalization of familiar names.

Wishing you a happy start to the holiday season!
