We also have periodic picnic days where the children bring a bag lunch and stuffed animal of their choice. 


BIRTHDAYS

You are welcome and encouraged to bring in a special snack on your child's birthday. This is a special day for the children. Some great snack ideas are:

   - small size cupcakes

   - hoodsie cups

   - brownies/cookies

   - ice cream sundaes


FIELD TRIPS

We will plan field trips for the older children (typically 3 years and older). A permission slip must be signed and we will inform you in advance. Volunteers are always welcome.


FIRE DRILLS

Fire drills will be performed at least once a month as required by state licensing. There will be a fire drill log posted in the cubby room.


QUIET TIME

As required to the state, a scheduled nap/quiet time will be held each day. Mats and blankets will be provided. If your child has a favorite blanket or sleeping bag, they may bring his or her own to leave at day care. Blankets and bags will be washed once a week or more as needed.


DISCIPLINE

A positive approach to discipline will be used. Children will be shown by modeling, on how to use words and children will learn how to express anger positively without hurting themselves or others. Time outs will be used, if necessary, to remove a child from a situation. 


REGISTRATION AND HEALTH FORMS

A registration form with personal and emergency contact information must be on file for each child. Please notify us of any changes (ie: work schedules, change of address, etc.)


A health form with up to date immunizations and physical is required by the state and must be updated annually. All forms must be returned within four weeks of the doctor's appointment for your child to attend.
