Here is what we have planned for this month!

No Baby Bloomers programming on November 12!
Join us for Story Time at 8:30 AM & 9:30 AM for songs & stories about colors and our senses! Observe how sunlight shines through transparent colors! What patterns and designs will you and your child make together?
Encourage your child to use their senses to investigate themed baskets and sensory bottles.
Melting colors! Observe what happens when frozen colors mix as they melt! Use your sense of touch to feel the cold. Experiment as you and your little one melt ice with warm water. Develop vocabulary as you compare and contrast!
Sensory Experience! Listen to music, see and touch colorful texture tiles. Bond with your little one and challenge their gross motor skills by jumping, rocking, and moving to the music! Dancing together encourages pro-social skills.
Shadow Play! Experiment with light & color using an overhead projector to create vibrant designs and dance in the colorful light show!
Magnet Wall: Creative Contrast! High contrast patterns and bright colors provide visual and cognitive stimulation as early learners focus on what they see. Move the shapes and patterns to challenge your little one’s visual ability.
Our Backyard (Outside)
Floating Fun! Chase bright colors as they float through our outdoor springs!
