Extra outings, visits, and family day
Here at L’Academie des Petites Mains, we offer quite a few outings a year. In the spring, we go to Zig Zag Zoo, in the fall we go apple picking and to the Ecomuseum and the Pre-K class goes to SkyTag twice a year. Permission slips are handed out and must be returned to the office. Expenses for these outings include:
- Extra staff
- Admission fee
- Any other expense incurred for the activity
Parents are always welcome to join us on our field trips, and there will be an extra area for you to fill out if you would like to attend.
We also walk to the local splash pad in the summer, as well as our Gym & Swim sessions in the fall – winter – spring and swimming lessons in the summer. The first weekend of June since 2015, we have also put on our annual Family Fun Day for our community. It is a way for us to give back to the community and our daycare families. It is an event that is free to attend, there is only a cost for food and all the proceeds we make on this day go back into our daycare to pay for new toys and educational materials for the children. We also try to arrange extra visits throughout the year. We like to do Dog Safety Day, firefighters and police visits, SportBall, Saya Percussion and more. These events are usually organized around what our monthly theme is, such as animals, occupations, sports and music.
