The heat is upon us! We will be spending time outside but not when a weather advisory is in effect. Please be certain to dress your child appropriately. We do not want them to be overheated. We recommend sun block (you put it on in the morning and we will reapply in the afternoon as needed), sun glasses and hats, as well. If you decide to bring sun block in, it will have to be logged into our medicine log (all topical ointments are required).
-The school year ends on Friday, June 22nd. Our summer program starts Monday, June 25th.
-If you are sending wrap children here for the summer, please contact Rutgers to make sure those children’s contracts are full time starting June 25th.
-Please remember every week your child needs a sheet and blanket (Purple Room and up). We will be having the air on and it does get chilly at nap time. A rental fee of $5 for a sheet a blanket will be charged if these items are not provided. Older children in the Purple Room will not be taking a nap during the summer. Also, the state has now passed the “safe sleep” rule. All children that are in a crib can no longer have any items besides a sheet. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact me.
-If your child is in diapers, please look at your daily letter to see if they need diapers and wipes. We have very few spares. If we do have to use our spares, we will replace them with your diapers once they are brought in.
-Please remember, no flip flops, no open toed sandals, and no jellies. This rule needs to be followed, especially if your child is going to participate in walks and going to the park.
-For those of you leaving us, we thank you for sharing these precious moments with your child. We will always hold them dear to our hearts. Please stop around to say hello.
-To everyone else, glad to keep you aboard. Your child’s teacher will be passing out agendas for our themed weeks for the summer months. We have some new and fun ideas that we hope the children will enjoy!
