Birthdays

Birthday’s are always celebrated during our regular snack period and if you plan on bringing in something special it must be cookies! Please NO CAKES OR CUPCAKES!!!! If you plan on brining in cookies, please let the office know, and please give us at least 1 day’s notice.

IMPORTANT: NO Clowns, ponies, presents, etc. –or- a large number of friends and relatives coming to the daycare to celebrate a birthday.

Restroom

imageThere are more than enough toilets and sinks in all 3 buildings. Children must ask permission before being allowed to go to the restrooms. This way the teachers will know exactly where the children that she is responsible for are at. Only one child is allowed in the restroom (stall) at a time.

 

Children are never denied restroom privileges. Any child NOT using clean restroom manners, MUST HAVE A TEACHER ACCOMPANY HIM/HER UNTIL RESTROOM RULES ARE UNDERSTOOD.

Breakfast, Lunch & Snack

Breakfast WILL NOT be served after 8:00AM for children age 1 year old and up –but- snack time begins at 8:30am and we will feed the child their breakfast at that time, while others are eating their morning snack.

Lunch: All children are required to bring a lunch daily. (There is a charge per child per day of $5.00 if we must provide a forgotten lunch).  Sandwiches, “Lunchables”, soup in a thermos, leftovers, are ideal meals, but to heat up lunches are impossible for children 2 years old.
