Parents and Guardians will bring their children to the tent at the beginning of the day. If your teacher or our greeter is not outside, just call us at 342-7250 or text us at 333-6551. (If its raining, call before you get out of your car)
All parents and guardians will be asked everyday if they did a COVID self check on themselves and their child at home.
Your child's temperature will also be taken daily. If there temp is over 100.4, they will be sent home and cannot return back without a Doctors note.
At the end of the day, your teacher will be with her class waiting for you to pick up at dismissal. (You will be charged a late fee if your more than 15 minutes late)
If you come before or after dismissal and we are not under the tent, just call us!
When your child enters the building, they will use hand sanitizer
This is Ms. Valencia, she might be calling you for paperwork. If you want to see pictures of all of our employees, go to the staff link on the home page.
We go up on the yellow and down on the red
Your child will find their name, and move it from home to school
Every child has their own cubby. In the Wegman's bags are individual mats for each child to rest on. 3 year olds rest for 45 min, and 4 year olds rest for 30 minutes.
If you look at the bottom of the cubby, you'll see a letter link. Your child will have a picture associated with his/her name with the same sound as their name.
In our classrooms, children have plenty of time to play. We call this time "work time". Kitchen and dramatic play, water table, toys, blocks, paint, books and puzzles just to name a few. All toys are disinfected every day!
To cut down on germs, every child has their own sand box and art materials. (Crayons, scissors, markers, glue sticks and safety scissors)
We follow a schedule every day.
We are super friends when we are kind and follow rules.
Our tables are set up so that children are 6 feet away
Our rules are simple, we will be sending home a copy for you to use at home!
When we have a problem with a friend, we use problem solving ideas.
We spread out on the carpet so that we are 6 feet away from our friends
Children play outside every day. We have bikes, balls and all kinds of toys to play with! We use hand sanitizer when we go out and when we return. The playground is disinfected every day. Please bring sneakers for your child!
