Arrival

Experience has shown us that the initial entry to the program can be an unsettling time for children and parents.  Separation on some days is difficult.  We encourage you to come into the Center, explore with your child, and talk about the day’s events.  We have found it is very helpful to avoid rushing during this time and to establish a routine for both drop off and pick up.  Taking a few minutes to be involved helps your child to feel a sense of security.  Feel free to take that time.  Before you leave your child at the Center for the day, make sure that a staff member has greeted and welcomed your child. This is especially important if you are dropping your child off while the group is on the playground.

A brochure giving suggestions for easing separations will be sent to families whose children are new to the Center before we open in September.  The director and the teachers are also available to offer suggestions, both before and after opening day.  Please feel free to call the Center at any time during the day to check on how your child is doing.  The phone number is (603) 535-2299.

All families must sign their children in and out every day. Signing in and out is crucial to the safety of your child during fire drills or emergencies that might occur.

Be sure to check your family mailbox and/or your email account (if given) daily.  If you would like to leave a special note for the staff regarding your child, please leave a message in the designated area in the child’s classroom, with the staff member who greets you and your child or to the staff member’s email.

Please call (603) 535-2299 to notify us if your child will not be attending on a scheduled day.  We would appreciate a call before 9 a.m.

From Ew! to Awe

Seeing rats in a whole new light » They’ve taken the rap for the spread of the Bubonic Plague in Medieval Europe. Their name is synonymous with scoundrel, traitor, and snitch. And then there are their tails: long and skinny, pink and seemingly hairless. They’re rats, and they’re probably the last animals you’d think would […]
