Penguins have been enjoying being outdoors 🌳 In the yard we made sand castles, we climb, we blew bubbles, and we moved around! This week we also observed how landscapers cut and took care of the trees and bushes around our daycare.

Indoors, we have spent lovely moments around books 📚 and doing crafts 🖍️. We have also played with the water beads again 🫧.

The preschoolers had an amazing end to their early education lives! The last two big celebrations included the sleep over party and Preschool 🎓 Graduation.

During the sleepover party, the Owls played outside, had a delicious pizza meal, watched a video and had an overnight experience in their classroom.

The graduation ceremony was full of smiles and tears. Many of the owls have been at Albatross for many, many years and now they are leaving for new adventures at 🏫 school. We are so proud of all of the children and grateful for all of the efforts and support provided by the parents and teachers!

Good luck, Owls!
