Happy Chinese New Year!

Welcome to the Year of the Horse. Did you know that people born in the year of the horse are said to be a bit like horses: animated, active and energetic?

So says Wikipedia!

Campus Dr. and Mountain Blvd. are holding Chinese New Year celebrations today. Children at both sites created dragon costumes for their parades. Here is the behind the scenes from Campus Dr:

A big THANK YOU to our families for making the Tudorka Tots campuses the special places they are.

We held our first Open House of 2014 at our Mountain Blvd. site and it was a huge success. Thank you to the teachers and Soccer Shots for your participation!

Our NEW Mills site will host its Open House from 11am-1pm, Saturday, January 25. (Address: 5410 Fleming Ave.) Please consider spreading the word by recommending Tudorka Tots on Berkeley Parents Network: http://parents.berkeley.edu/post_cc.html. You must be a member to post!

Any parent who refers a friend who enrolls will receive a $50 tuition discount. 

imagesWe also held our potluck dinner at Mountain Blvd. last week to wrap up our multicultural curriculum. Families and teachers shared dishes representing the countries they are from. The preschoolers even made tamales! Here are some pics!

ARE YOU MY SECRET SANTA????

 

 

 

 

“It was my third year experiencing a fun-filled Secret Santa exchange with Tudorka Tots. We get together throughout the year and it gives us a chance to know each other better.” ~Ms. Danielle 

“I really enjoyed my first year with Tudorka Tots. I am glad we were able to get together with all the teachers for the holidays. We wished we could do it more often and decided to go on weekend hiking and picnic trips with our staff. Our Secret Santa was very special. Each teacher put so much effort into their gifts. My idea of making it a White Elephant turned out to be lots of fun.” ~Ms. Nancy
