"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

I sent home calendars for October this month.  Be sure to look in your child's backpack for their creations and their calendar.

Homework Assignment:  Children who are preschool age get super excited about the next holiday, birthday, or any exciting event!  One thing that can be hard to understand and make them upset is when it doesn't come the day they want.  At preschool we do a calendar everyday.  It would be great if you could show them your family calendar.  Show them how many days it will be till Halloween, Christmas or whatever so they can help count down with you.  This will help them to understand time a little better but also work on their numbers.

Saturday October 13, 2012 is the Scott Archibald Benefit Dinner/Auction from 5-7 pm.  Dinner is only $5.  Music Train Preschool will be giving away two 2 months tuition for the "Play with Me" class that I teach on Friday Mornings.  We have a really fun group of children with their moms/dad/caregivers.  We have children ages 0-5 that attend the class with their parent.  A piano, cruiser bike, gym memberships, Ipad, Itv, and so much more will be auctions off that night.  Come and support the Archibald family (my friends and an amazing Smithfield family!)
