• Please provide a fitted and or flat sheet and blanket, as well as possibly a small travel pillow for naptime.
• Make sure your child has a tooth brush and toothpaste
• Bring in a change of clothing for your child. Childhood is messy, whether at home or at our center!
• Make sure to label cold lunches daily with your child's full name and the date.
* We will begin implementing our potty training chart and come up with a potty training schedule to ensure that our kids have an easy time transitioning to one of the most exciting stages of their youth so far: NO DIAPERS! To succeed, of course, we will all have to work together. Please don't hesitate to ask me any kind of questions you might have about the topic. As for myself, you can be sure I will talk to you about very early into the school year.
* We plan be spending a lot of time in the writing center and the free form art area stocked with age appropriate materials toddlers can grip, such as chubby crayons, non-toxic glue sticks, construction paper, fabric, tissue paper, and ribbon materials. In addition to that, we will set up an open art easel with paper, paintbrushes, and all manner of bright paints. Get ready to discover the little Picasso hidden in your kid!
My goal is to reach developmental milestones through activities that expand the children's thought process and creativity. In order to keep track of this development and to collect information from other sources, each week I will ask families a questions about their children's development. I would appreciate if you could answer this question anonymously and place your answer in the “thought box” on top of our cubbies. The information (anecdote, joke, advice) you provide might prove useful to other parents, and it would certainly be extremely useful for me.
