Please note the following special events that will take place at Learning Ladder Nursery in JLT Dubai, during Term 2. Attached is also the overall plan that would be followed for the next three months:
· Fruit/Vegetable Salad: Thank you for sending in the fruits and vegetables on January 15th, 2014. The children loved learning about the different colours and textures and names of all the fruits and vegetables and also their nutritional and health benefits.
· Health Day: We would like to celebrate Health Day on January 27th, 2014 and the staff and children will be taking part in various activities involving various aspects of “Healthy Living” and we have invited a prominent health and nutrition consultant to come and have a chat with the children regarding the benefits of healthy eating and exercising.
· Small Mouths Program: On January 28th, 2014 Clair James Grisdale from Drs. Nicolas & Asp will be visiting Learning Ladder Nursery to conduct the Small Mouths program. Drs. Nicolas & Asp have been successfully running the small mouths program for thirteen years, and it was extremely popular with our children when they visited us last year. The program is conducted by Oral Health Educator Clair Grisdale who uses puppets, tooth models, and educational DVDs to capture the children’s attention. The children are shown a vital demonstration on the proper brushing, and flossing techniques and the importance of healthy eating and of brushing twice a day. The initiative is to empower our children for a brighter healthier smile in the years to come!

We would be sending a copy of this report home with your child.
