A few Reminders

Hello families,

Now that families are coming back into the building I wanted to remind you that you should be shutting the door behind you and not letting anyone in, especially delivery drivers. We typically just have delivery people set the items in the entry way.

As we all know, illnesses have been going around. We are doing our part to communicate with you and keep you up to date while also keeping peoples privacy a priority. It is a licensing rule to keep things as confidential as possible. Unfortunately, we know that children are going to get sick at daycare, it is just a part of the process, it does not matter what child started it and what child passed it to who, so please do not reach out to the teachers or other families members asking where it came from.

I respond to emails rather quickly so please feel free to reach out to me whenever you have questions. I try, really hard, to respect the teachers times outside of work and I do not expect them to have to answer work related questions when they are not at work.

Thank you all for understanding and working with us to keep the center safe.

I hope everyones week is going well.

Thank you Families

Hello families,

I just wanted to send out big thank you to everyone that contributed to Teacher Appreciation Week. We celebrated with lots of food and it was all, greatly, appreciated. Below are a few pictures of the little gifts I gifted along with, most, of the, delicious, food items.

Staying Healthy

Hello families,

I hope you all have had a wonderful week and are staying healthy. 

Just this week we have had a confirmed case of Hand, Foot and Mouth and RSV. If it affected your classroom directly you were sent and email and if it was at the center, your child goes to, a fact sheet was posted at the main entry way.

I am attaching a reminder of our Health Check Screening List that all the teachers look at to make sure children are healthy while in our care. We ask that you keep this as a reference so that you can do these health checks at home before bringing your child to school.

Our main goal, always, is to keep the children, staff and your families healthy. Thank you for being a part of that goal.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Amanda

Continuing with Masks

Hello everyone,

All staff, children over two years old and adults entering the building will continue to wear masks inside.

I am in continuous conversation with our owners and directors at other centers. We really trust Madison Metropolitan School District and the decision they made to continue wearing masks indoors through, at least, the first week in May. Many child care centers in the Madison area continue to wear masks, as many of our children are still not able to get fully vaccinated.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Friday, April 15th & Monday, April 18th

Happy Monday!

I just wanted to send a little reminder that we will be closing on Friday, April 15th at Noon. We will still serve morning snack at 9am, but will not be serving lunch. If you do not plan on bringing your child in that day please let you teachers know.

We will also be closed on Monday, April 18th for Parent/Teacher Conferences.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend,

Amanda

Classroom Breakfast Updates

Hi everyone,

There have been many questions regarding the family breakfast tomorrow. I am so sorry if information has been vague, due to COVID it has been a few years since we have done this.

LCLA will be providing some fruit, bagels with cream cheese and coffee. These items will be out in the kitchens at each center.

If you would like to to provide more breakfast items for your child’s classroom, please feel free, but it is not required.

Please reach out if you ever have any questions or concerns.

Wishes Wall for your Children

Good morning,

Yesterday, I posted about our Week of the Young Child activities, but forgot to mention our classroom Wish Walls.

Each classroom was given a postcard for you to write some special words or wishes you have for you child. Each classroom has done this a little differently. Some of you have turned in your postcards already and some of you can grab one from you classroom.

I look forward to reading these special messages in the classroom. As always please reach out if you have any questions.

Week of the Young Child & April Snack Menu

Happy Monday Everyone!

Attached are two pictures, one for our Week of the Young Child activities and the other our April Snack Menu.

We consider everyday Week of the Young Child, but this is a week celebrated nationally that we always participate in. Our classrooms will be creating, extra, fun activities with the children this week and we will celebrate your family by providing an easy breakfast on Friday.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.
