And from all the lands on earth we come

Madison and Stephanie together with their babies have dived headfirst into the exploration of cultures. The cultures of themselves their babies and many other cultures that make up this wonderful country.
How interesting is the American Indian culture? The babies said let’s find out, they then became engrossed in dream catchers while exploring and have created their own dream catchers. Now we have a space for our parents to add their dreams for us to our play space.
On St. Patrick’s Day the babies became entrenched in Shamrock art and exploring Gaelic music using technology. Using our gross motor muscles, they got really tired exploring Irish dancing and the Irish Nursery rhyme “I’ll tell me ma”.
