Dear Parents,
 
Christmas is the most wonderful time of year. Particularly when we get to celebrate it with our children. The wonder and excitement on their faces is magical.
 
As 2022 comes to an end, we want to thank you for all your support over the year. We have enjoyed being part of your lives and are looking forward to another great year!
 
May you all enjoy your Christmas season and create memories that last a lifetime.  
 
 
 
Shawn Santo, Director
 

IMPORTANT REMINDER:

 

Cold Weather

Now is a good time to change your child’s spare clothes in their cubbies. They may need to be changed out for bigger and warmer clothes. Please make sure you put your child’s name on the extra clothes and their belongings. Don’t forget to put your child’s name in jackets as well. 
 
Please bring a small blanket for your child to nap with. Remember to take it home at the end of the week to wash it. 
 
Please have your child here by 9am, this is when our preschool enrichment begins, and your child misses out when they are late.
 
Please be sure to pick up your child at your contracted pick-up time. We need to make sure we stay in teacher to child ratio and if you are late picking up your child that affects ratios.

A Note from Pastor Tim,

 

Not sure that you need any Christmas ideas, but I am going to give you one. It is one of my favorite gifts to give to families with preschoolers.
 
My Christmas gift idea is a book, The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones (it’s available on Amazon, Target and Barnes and Noble). I love this Bible because it is beautifully illustrated *by the artist Jaco) and in a very fun way., the stories in the Bible take on a whole new fresh approach. God’s story of salvation, from Noah to Moses to King Daid lead toward the Story of a baby named Jesus. It is a great reminder that” every story whispers His name.”I also love it because it tells familiar Bible stories in a very easy to understand way.
 
Hope that you and your family have a great Christmas and that you get to enjoy the season when we celebrate Christ’s birth.
 

Please join us for worship as we celebrate the greatest gift of all: Jesus the Messiah.

COVID-19 POLICY & SICK POLICY

 
We all need to work together to keep everyone safe and healthy.
 
Children will be asked to stay home or return home if any of the following applies:
  •  Child has a fever of 100.4 or higher or other potential symptoms of COVID-19, such as shortness of breath, persistent dry cough, sore throat, muscle pains or gastrointestinal symptoms (vomiting, nausea or diarrhea), chills with repeated shaking, fatigue, congestion or runny nose within the last 48 hours. 
  • Colds and the flu are still out there.  If your child exhibits any of the symptoms and has tested negative for COVID, please keep them home for 24 hours after fever ends without the use of fever reducing medication. We want to make sure your child feels well enough to participate. 
 
♥♥
 

The Health Department as well as Community Care Licensing will not let us attempt to distinguish whether the symptoms are caused by COVID-19 or another cause, such as allergies or a common cold.  Any of the symptoms listed on the “Safer Practices and Sick Child Amendment –COVID-19” form will prevent a child from attending school.  If you need another copy of the form, please let me know.  We all need to work together to keep everyone safe and healthy.

 

Additionally, our policy is designed to protect the well-being of all the children, as well as the staff. When there are symptoms of illness or other indications that a child is not well enough for group activities, arrangement must be made for their care at home. If your child becomes at school, they will be isolated, and you will be called to pick up your child. Exposure to communicable disease should be promptly reported. By the same token, the school will notify you when your child has been exposed to an infectious disease.

IMPORTANT:

ILLNESS POLICY:

 If your child has a fever, vomits or has diarrhea at school or home, they may not return to school for 24 hours after the symptoms are gone.It is very important to keep your child home if they are not feeling well.  If you have any doubts it is better to keep your child home one more day than to send then to school when they are not quite up to it.  If your child has conjunctivitis (pink eye) they may not return to school until they have received antibiotic treatment for 24 hours.  Remember good handwashing is very effective in keeping disease from spreading.  Our policy will cut down on the transition of disease to other children, and our staff.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

If anything has changed with your emergency or contact information, please contact the Preschool Office so we can update and be sure we have your correct information.  When a little one is ill, time is of the essence in trying to reach a parent.  In addition if working, please leave-detailed instructions if needed to make it easier for us to contact you at work.  Cell phones are not always reliable.  We need a back up way to reach you.
