November 2016

It’s officially November and as the candy slowly disappears into thin air from all that trick & treating, it’s time to come to terms with the fact that the time-change has meant nothing but less sleep for everyone! and that the kids are now extra ready to get out of bed and start their active day at 5AM! So may we suggest burning off all of that extra energy by enrolling into an active program in our MIX Term which kicks off this Saturday November, 12th onwards.

November is also the month where we begin our seasonal Holiday Workshops meaning you can participate in a fun Bake & Craft workshop with your child, or partake in one of our professional workshops such as “Sleep workshop” offered complementary by Wee Sleep.

Regardless of what event or program you choose, we look forward to seeing you and your kiddo(s) at oaks ‘n acorns, so please sign up now and enjoy this dark and gloomy month in our community of fellow parents and children who share similar interest as yourself in our Activity studio.

Happy November.
