Welcome to our care home... Dragonfly Cove is dedicated to all the kiddos in our lives:D You will see various pictures of our kiddos learning through play in their "every day" life♥ We've created a hygge atmosphere ~ find out more about that in the blog if you haven't heard this term before♥ We love to see your thoughts and comments!:D

This blog is a living, growing record of our kiddos during this beautiful time in our lives together. Here we document and share the unique experiences, ideas and inspirations enriching our lives and the children in our care. Memories and experiences are the greatest gifts we can bestow on our children... thank you for embarking on this continuing journey with us... Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about getting out there and dancing in the rain♥

Here is an excerpt from "How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years" which directly pertains to our blog here:)
"a means of sharing perspectives with parents and colleagues. When families and others are invited to contribute to the documentation and share their own interpretations, it can provide even more insights that children, educators, and families can return to, reflect on, and remember in order to extend learning."

Thanks so much for making this shared journey so memorable and so very special... lots of love♥

Spring Renewal...

Even though there is snow on the ground and we still go sledding each day after school lessons are done... my mind turns to spring and renewal.  I've suffered profound losses over the past few months... my Grandmother and then... my unborn baby.  

 "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.  There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature— the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter."
-   Rachel Carson

It is comforting to return to the hope and renewal of spring.  There is something rather cathartic about spring clean and shedding excess winter clutter, dust and to lift and eliminate all that weighs us down.  

Faith to light the darkened sky
Strength to carry on
Love to touch and heal the soul
Hope to grace the dawn

I also think of the children as we are preparing for spring and poetry lightens and inspires them as well... here are some of the resources I use for the kids during spring...

I hope you and yours will also find renewal this spring and find joy in each new day♥
