We are so excited to tell you that we are opening on Monday, October 31st! Our schedule for the first week will be 9am-12pm. Parents may drop off between 8am and 9am. Parents are to pick up their child/children between 11:30am - 12pm. Having shortened days allows the children to become acclimated to their new environment without feeling overwhelmed, by the extended day. We realize a shortened day may be a challenge for some working parents but we believe the shortened day is the best way to transition the children to a new school environment.

Here are a few things you will need for the first day of school:

Infants:
1. Two sets of extra clothes including socks
2. Appropriate outdoor clothing; hats and mittens, as needed with weather
3. Premade bottles labeled with your child's name and date
4. Pacifier that is labeled with your child's name
5. A supply of diapers, wipes and diaper cream (if needed) labeled with your child's name

Toddler:
1. Two sets of extra clothes including socks and shoes
2. Appropriate outdoor clothing; hats and mittens, label all clothing with your child's name
3. For rest time, if desired, a blanket and small pillow. Again, label these items with your child's name.
4. A supply of diapers, wipes and diaper cream labeled with your child's name.

Preschool:
1. Extra clothing including an old pair of shoes, make sure all items are labeled.
2. Appropriate outdoor clothing including hats and mittens, please label all outdoor clothing items on the tags with your child's name.
3. For rest time, if desired, a blanket and small pillow. Again label these items with your child's name.
4. Prescription medication in the original container, be prepared to take some time to fill out the permission form for the school to dispense the medication.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to label all items you bring into the school with your child's name.

We know we just gave you a lot of information, you should receive an email from your teacher with this information as well.

Thank you and we are so excited to see everyone on Monday!
