Please Label ALL items! Unlabeled items will be placed in the lost and found each day. (If you do not label items, it is unfair to give myself or my staff a hard time at the end of the day because another parent has mistakenly taken them.)Please glance in the lost and found every day to retrieve your clothing. It will be emptied and given away at the end of each month.

 

Effective May 6th.

-Each child should arrive at school wearing sunscreen. Apply it at home when your child is naked all over his/her body. We will reapply as necessary during the day. Applying it upon arrival as you leave your car is not good enough lol. It needs 30 min to fully absorb. 

 

Reminder.

-Please respect your book-out /in time and advise Kai by phone if you will be arriving late or early.

 

-A Hand out will be sent with soon with regards our new plan for our mornings. It is designed to give us more time outdoors and to ease drop offs for parents in the mornings.

 

 

Thanks in advance for your co-operation.

Daily Activity Calendar- Winter 2018

(Under Construction)

Nothing is ever written in stone, this is a global guideline only. I do follow the cues given to me by the children in my care, paying particular attention to their interest and wellness levels. During all seasons we do as much as possible outdoors and catch up on the activities that necessitate being indoors on rainy, snowy, nasty days. In the winter the time outdoors may be shorter but we do go out on daily basis weather and health permitting. Free play is build in between activities. Toilet and diaper changes as necessary. Babies remain on their own respective nap schedules. Free play is built in between each activity.   Toilet and diaper changes are of course done as necessary. Babies remain on their own respective nap schedule.
