Just a reminder that we will be closed on Monday, 2/21/2022. As part of our working with Workforce Solutions, we are allowed 9 days off throughout the year. Tomorrow will be a paid holiday for my staff as we close for President’s Day. My wish is never to inconvenience parents by being closed but to spread the 9 days out so that my employees have a long weekend to rest and renew every now and then. We look forward to seeing all our families on Tuesday!

As a pediatric therapist for more than 30 years, I have come up with a list of what I believe kids need and don’t need. I wish I could have a do-over on a few of these.

What kids don’t need:
1. Cell phones when they’re in grade school. Over the years, I cannot tell you one good thing that can come from this.
2. Unlimited access to social media. There is very little that is healthy on social media for children and it is getting worse.
3. So many toys that they can’t even think of something to want at birthday or holiday times. Too much of anything leaves children unable to be full. They become like buckets with holes in them.
4. Televisions in their rooms. Rooms are for sleeping. Good sleep hygiene is a dying art for too many children.
5. To be able to control the emotional climate of the home. Moody kids should not be allowed to hold the whole house hostage. If a child wants to be moody, he can go to his room and be moody by himself. Everyone else need not suffer.
6. Too much indoor time. Our kids have become hermits with social media and high tech games. It is ruining their social skills. It’s also taking a toll on their physical well-being.
7. Too many activities outside of school. No wonder this generation is so anxiety-ridden. They are overloaded. If we want to teach them to take care of themselves as they age, we must teach them to do that by our example and by limiting their extracurricular activities. Scripture even recognizes the need to rest.
8. To be able to disrespect any authority. Even authority that you as a parent dislike or the child dislikes should still be respected. There will always be an authority in your child’s life even when your child is 50.
9. To always call the shots. Children who get to always choose where to eat, where to play, and what the family does end up being brats.
10. Constant approval and pats on the back. You will not always be around to do this. Children need to learn to be proud of themselves when they do something good whether anyone tells them or not.

What children do need:
I. Rest. They play hard. Their bodies need rest to grow and develop.
2. Uninterrupted family time. The most important people to a child are those under the same roof. Make family time purposeful and protected.
3. Outdoor play time where they can explore and create. All kids need free time to imagine.
4. Rules and expectations. Be clear. Be concise. And don’t be afraid to give them.
5. Consistent discipline. If a rule is broken, a child needs to know what to expect. All fear is not a bad thing. There is a fear that can represent respect.
6. Parents who love them and love each other. Security begins here.
7. For you as a parent to say “no” sometimes. Your child does not need a lollipop or a new shirt every time you go to Walmart.
8. Hugs. Physical touch affects the development of children.
9. The ability to share their feelings about anything as long as they are respectful.
10. The most precious gift that a parent can give any child is to demonstrate a personal relationship with God and consistently teach that child through your actions what having faith in God really means. In the toughest times of their lives, they will learn in large part to rely on God by the example you display for them.

Monday, August 23rd is move up day! Your child will be moving to the next classroom on that day. If you have any questions regarding your child’s new classroom, please let me know.

Due to the recent spike in COVID cases, we will continue to encourage parents to drop off and pick up at the back door. We will plan a back to school event so parents can meet their child’s new teachers in a way that is safe for everyone.

We will be enrolling new students since a large group of our kiddos are starting school. We will have space in the baby room and lots of room for 3’s and 4’s. If you know of parents needing care for their children, please send them our way!

07/04/2021

Happy 4th of July! We hope you enjoy your day! Just a reminder that we will be closed Monday, 7/5/21, in observance of Independence Day. Be safe!

During Teacher Appreciation week, I definitely want to recognize all my staff does for our kiddos every day! I’m thankful for all of them! ❤️

10 REASONS TO APPRECIATE A DAYCARE TEACHER

1. They are not daycare workers, they are daycare teachers. Their lesson plan every day includes: how to share, how to have “nice hands” and “walking feet,” how to say please and thank you, how to walk behind someone without pushing, how to take turns, and how to have “listening ears.”

2. They are not just teachers. They are also janitors and nurses. They make boo-boos feel better and dry up tears. They spray, wipe, sanitize, sweep, mop, vacuum, and take out the trash.

3. They are waitresses. They balance little trays and cups of milk. They pick up squashed peas off the floor. Scoop peaches when they ask for more.

4. They change 5 dirty diapers, within 10 minutes, the day after beef and corn.

5. They get 12 little ducklings to follow in a row on their way to the playground.

6. They tie tiny shoes. Snap tiny pants. Fold tiny blankeys. Wipe tiny noses. Spend 5 minutes fixing the heels of tiny Converse. Multiply all of this by 12 on some days.

7. They are there before parents go to work and-or don’t go home until the last kid is picked up as the second hand ticks to closing time.

8. They lay out cots and pillows and blankeys and paci’s. They know who gets a pacifier, who gets a 6 oz bottle, who has to have all the lights out, who will wake up early, who came in late and will lay awake. They sit between cots patting restless toddlers to sleep. They spend the rest of nap time keeping the one early riser from waking the 11 others.

9. They go home and take care of their own families and homes, or their own children. They somehow find time to rest their tired feet.

10. They are patient and kind. They are trustworthy. They do their best with no promise of rest. They don’t enjoy disciplining, but do it with love. Their heart swells to see your child grow and learn and smile and play. They laugh at the funny things the kids always say. Say thank you to your daycare teacher. They love your child❤️

The state emergency guidelines are being lifted. Beginning on Monday, April 26, parents will have the choice to drop their children off at the BACK DOOR or can choose to come into the building for drop off and pick up. Though the guidelines are being lifted, I am honestly terrified to go back to our old normal. Our children have been safe during this crazy pandemic. We only had one positive Covid child in August, 2020, have not had any flu cases and zero RSV cases since we have been shut down. Illnesses have been ear infections, colds and allergies, some strep cases, and a recent stomach virus. If we have positive Covid cases, children, parents, and my staff (without pay) will have to quarantine for 14 days.

If you choose to enter the building, please use the sanitizer placed by the back door upon entering the building. PARENTS MUST WEAR A MASK WHILE IN THE BUILDING, AT ALL TIMES! Also, please be considerate of others and practice social distancing while in the building to ensure the safety of my employees, children, and other parents.

I encourage you to continue drop offs and pick ups at the back door. Staff will be available to take your child and deliver your child as we have been doing. If you have any questions, please let me know.

02/11/2021

We will open at 9:30 this morning. Please be safe on the roads!
