Happy New Year and welcome back!!
2020 sure threw us some curveballs, but we made it through with kindness, patience and courage! We
would like to extend our sincerest thanks to our Reach community for your continued support in
helping us to make our preschool a safe and fun place for the children! We hope
you all enjoyed a nice relaxing break with your family!

IMPORTANT REMINDERS – We appreciate our families letting us know when they are going to be late or if your child is going to be absent. Please call 604-946-6622, Ext. 317 or email [email protected]
-Please ensure everything your child brings to school is clearly labelled with their name (backpacks/lunch boxes, water bottles, boots/hats/coats, muddy buddy, etc.) Many children have identical or similar items, so it is very helpful to have everything labelled!
– Please send your child dressed for the weather (warm and waterproof!!) Sometimes even in the wettest weather, the children do not want to come inside right away! A change of clothes is always a good idea too, just in case that waterproof wear fails!

2021/2022 Preschool Registration

Reach Preschool will be holding their 2021-2022 In-House preschool registration from February 16 to 19 for children who are currently enrolled and are eligible to return next year. All families must re-register their children annually. Registrations are processed on a first come/first serve basis. Families may also register age-appropriate siblings at the same time. Waitlist children and children who are new to Reach will register at a later date. 2021-2022 Registration Packages will be ready for pick-up at the preschool on February 8.
Introducing … There has been a little bit of class shuffling as we head into 2021, so we wanted to take this opportunity to welcome our friends into their new classes!

▪ Sadie B, Holden, Nicholas and Jackson will be joining our Mon/Wed/Fri class.
▪ Benjamin, Easton, Leo, and Landon will be joining our Tues/Thurs class.
We are confident this positive change will bring about new friendships, and we look forward to watching these develop!


Just a reminder that Scholastic has made the move to paperless! All flyers are available on their website, ordering books is super easy and they ship directly to your door! Reach gets a kickback from every order placed, so we can earn reward points to be able to add resources to our classroom! It’s a win win!

New Staff!
We would like to welcome our new support worker Alyssa to the Mon/Wed/Fri class! Hello, my name is Alyssa! I recently graduated with a degree in biology and a minor in psychology. I am very interested in child development and am currently helping out with a toddler nutrition study at BC Children’s Hospital. But most of all, I love to work directly with children! I have spent three summers teaching at a day camp, and I have especially enjoyed volunteering with Make-a-Wish. I am so excited to get to know the children here at the preschool and to be part of their learning and growth! My favourite thing to do in my spare time is to cuddle up with my kitten, Daisy, and read a book.


During the month of January, we will be implementing our Play Safe/Be Safe program with the children which is a nationally recognized program to teach young children the importance of fire safety and playing safely. This program includes a series of four short videos that the children will be watching at preschool. Your child will be bringing home a number of handouts to share with you that will explain the activities they will be taking part in. You can support your child’s interest in this program by discussing the importance of fire safety with your child on a regular basis. If you have any questions about this program, please speak to Jean or Susie.

Family Literacy Day – January 27

Family literacy focuses on parents, grandparents and other family members to improve the reading and writing skills of the whole family. By reading to children and engaging in fun literacy activities regularly, adults actively keep their own skills sharp and also help children improve their skills. Family literacy activities strengthen the relationship between family members which, in turn, encourages lifelong learning. Without adult support and a strong foundation at home, a child is less likely to be successful and engaged in school. -abclifeliteracy.ca
Here are a few activities that families can do together to enhance literacy skills: 1. Winter Walk Scavenger Hunt – go for a walk and look for items that define our winters (puddles, dripping branches, fallen leaves, etc.) 2. Make marshmallow and toothpick sculptures. 3. Make hot chocolate together. Writing down or drawing each step in the process. 4. Play a simple board game together like Candyland, Trouble, Guess Who, BINGO
