Dear parents: 
Happy Canada Day! Beyond Care Child Centre will be closed on Monday, July 1st, in observance of Independence Day!
To celebrate and respect Canada Day, we will read books and learn all about our country; such as national animal, our flag, about the capital city, learn to sing our national anthem and know about the significance of Canada Day.
We will introduce the names of provinces and territories in Canada. We will talk about and show them Canadian money especially nickel that has the impression of Beaver which is our national animal.
For craft, children will color Canadian Flag, and trace and draw and color beaver to bring home.  


Congratulations to all the Canadians and new immigrants on Canada’s 152ndanniversary.  It will be 152 years since Canada became an Independent country. On this day Canadians flag flies high in all the provinces and territories. Citizens celebrate with firework, concerts, barbecues, etc. A national parade also takes place in all the provinces. Canadian citizens involve many other patriotic activities.

Every year the nation’s largest Parade and celebration happen in Ottawa in front of the Parliament building. Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. Celebrations also take place in other parts of the country in full patriotic spirit.  It is a day off from work so that people can join in the parade and salute soldiers who sacrificed their lives to make Canada an independent country. Parents should try to take children at the site of Parade so as to develop in them the spirit of patriotism.


Strong-willed children create difficulties not only for themselves but even for adults around them be that patents or caregivers. These stubborn children put up a big show even for a trivial reason, they get so aggressive that nothing can be reasoned out with them.  In order to discipline these children, often adults punish them or give them time out, but none of these disciplinary actions show much successful result. However, a different approach such as talking with the children and setting limits or boundaries would have a lasting effect on their behavior as they feel inclusive and respected and heard.
You might not be able to change his personality but by making some adjustments to your approach you might provide him the opportunity to learn about who he is and that he be as best as he can under the set limits.  What limits would work with children: 

  • Let the child know that you are the responsible adult around and that you have authority over him and the situation. 
  • You must draw lines or set limits which under no situation must change, nor crossed. 
  • When a child does not listen or become aggressive over sharing his toy or cries loud, a role model for him, show your kindness, patience, and gentleness but be firm hold his hand, pat his back and talk with him, this approach lets the child calm down.

Another best way is to set rules in the house is to be kind, to be safe and respectful at all times and in all conflict situations. These rules should be reinforced to the children every so often. 
As an adult, our effort is to develop a child into a safe, kind and respectful person to live happily and successfully in the society they live.

Summer Activity:

We are halfway through 2019. It has been a really good year so far. Summer has finally set in with full force.   During these two summer months, we usually talk about summer nights, the moon and stars.  We will also talk about camping which some parents might take advantage of this beautiful weather and give their children the experience of spending a couple of nights in the tent. 
In July and August, we will spend long hours playing outside.  We will create a water table into the ocean for children to have a blast with underwater sea creatures. Children also have a lot of fun playing in the sandbox.
In the classroom, we will read and learn a lot about spiders, insects, frog, and fishes of different kinds. Academic learning continues at a slower pace than usual as there is a lot of informal learning through play in summer months.


In summer months most of our learning happens while playing, for example, children learn a lot about underwater sea creatures read related books and watch the video. This is when the spider is seen most we try to catch the moment and talk about different kinds of spiders which they get to see when they go outside to play. Hence our formal learning takes a slower pace but does continue with older children who are doing advance academics such as math and reading.




As part of our best practice, we will forward a copy of the newsletter to all parents electronically.  Copies of all our newsletters are also available on our website should parents want to revisit any of the past issues.


A quick reminder for all parents that as the weather is now changing to warmer days it is crucial that children wear the right kind of shoes and bring a sun hat.  Some of the children still struggle to wear rain boots while going outside. In warmer temperatures, rain boots are not comfortable as children can’t run and play wearing these boots. We also request parents to send sunscreen. We will only use the sunscreen provided by the parents due to an allergy issue. You know the best lotion that works for your child.

Finally, we thank parents for their continuous support to us by speaking positive about Beyond Care and sharing their firsthand experience with family and friends.  It means a lot to us. We believe our growth and reputation so much depend upon the word of mouth from our existing parents. Thank you again!
