There will be times and ways you can get involved in your child's childcare experience. You are welcomed and encouraged to participate in any or all of these. Some examples of ways to be involved include:
Chaperoning on field trips
Lending objects for units of study
Coming and talking about your job, when asked
Helping your child at home with the concepts we are studying
Helping your child prepare for "Show and Tell"
Helping to provide treats or other items for our parties
BIRTHDAYS & PARTIES
Each child's birthday is his/her "Special Day." We will buy the child a gift that is from all of us. If you feel you must purchase a personal gift for the birthday child, we ask that you give this outside of the childcare facility. It will be your responsibility to provide a cake, cupcakes, or treats for your child's special day. We will let you know which day we will celebrate. We also have holiday parties occasionally throughout the year. Signup sheets will be posted at the front door for your assistance with these days as needed on a voluntary basis.
Please respect our profession, our facility, and our staff. The respect that you show us, including our facility, furnishings, equipment, yard, and other children will help your child show respect as well. There are certain house rules that all children will be taught and expected to follow. In addition, although we realize that we must expect a certain amount of wear and tear where children are concerned, we do not want to have our facility "demolished".
The following rules are enforced for the safety and well being of everyone. There will be no running permitted in the classroom. Hitting, pushing, biting, grabbing, kicking, spitting, or pinching other children/infants/adults will NOT be allowed. No standing or climbing on chairs, tables, or furniture. There will be no use of obscene, derogatory or disrespectful language. Children may not walk around the room with food, cups or bottles. Children are not permitted to lift and/or carry other children while in our care. Respectful treatment of other people and all property, toys, and furniture is expected. Willful destruction of property will be charged to the parent at the cost to replace the item. Toys are meant to be played with, and if they break, it is most likely from wear and tear. Please support us in the enforcement of these rules, in order to create a better environment for all.
