It has been a fantastic start to the school year!! The children are adjusting so well to our classrooms, and our daily routines are under way. We are looking forward to a fun month of October, starting with our Pancake Family Breakfast, first Nature Walk, and Halloween festivities and Parties! Our breakfasts are Wednesday, October 3rdand Thursday, October 4th at 8:30. Details went home last week.
Lunch time is going so well. Thank you all for cooperating with our NO peanut or tree nut policy. During lunch, we do our best to encourage the children to eat their healthy lunch first and then the treat if provided. An ideal lunch would be three healthy choices, as too many choices can be confusing. Please include a drink in your child’s lunchbox, labelled if it is a thermos.
Thank you also for signing up for snack. We have had some wonderful snacks! Please keep in mind healthy eating is our goal! Fruit, cheese, veggies, yogurt, crackers are always welcome! Cupcakes for birthdays or special occasions are a fun treat. Muffins are always nice too!
We are planning to go outside every day, weather permitting, so please dress accordingly. Also, please be sure to mark all clothing with permanent marker so that we can help the children find their jackets. We are encouraging the older children to put on, zip and button their own jackets, as this promotes independence and help to prepare them for kindergarten. Sneakers are best for outdoor play and the gym as the sand can be sometimes damp.
The dates for the Halloween Parties are Monday, October 30th and Tuesday, October 31st . A sign-up sheet for party snacks will be posted on the door in the hallway. Please only sign up in the spaces provided to avoid snack overload. On the day of the party, the children will wear their costumes to school and we will have a short parade at 9:15. Coffee will be provided for parents while waiting for the parade. After our parade, please remove your child’s costume and take it home for safekeeping.
Please keep your calendars handy so that you can keep informed of our daily activities and theme weeks! We are also in the process of preparing a group email in order to email our schedules and class information as well. Please let us know if you do not want to receive emails from Tiny Tots. There will be updates on Facebook when it comes to inclement weather. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions
Tuition is due on the first of the month. A mailbox is located in the coat area for easy drop off.
