If your child shows signs or symptoms of illness, he/she will be sent home. Please make sure you have alternative care for your child in case of an emergency.
Unless the weather is extremely severe, we will go outside for much needed fresh air and large motor play. If your child is too ill to go outside, they should be kept home.
The children have a rest period each day. Please provide a familiar cuddly blanket to help soothe a restless body.
Family involvement is a crucial link between the child's home and school. Our open-door policy encourages parents to be part of their child's care and education.
Center Assistance Group
Families and staff work together to form a Center Assistance Group (CAG). This group functions as a sounding board for all center adults involved in creating a nurturing and educational environment for the children.
Parents provide the child's lunch. The center provides a morning and afternoon snack. Due to Health Department regulations, food provided by parents for special occasions such as birthdays must be store-purchased or prepared at the center.
