Health

A health form completed by a licensed physician must be submitted before a child’s entrance into the program.  It is the responsibility of the family to maintain up-to-date health and registration records at the Center.   Please notify the Center in writing if there are any changes in your child’s medical status, such as the development of allergies or receiving an immunization.

Children attending the program are expected to be able to participate comfortably in all components of the program, both indoors and outdoors.

Cooking is a frequent part of the curriculum.  Please notify your child’s teacher and the director in writing if there are certain foods your child cannot eat because of medical, religious, or cultural reasons. If a child needs to follow a special diet for medical reasons, please provide a note from your doctor giving details of the foods to be avoided.

We try to take the children outside every day, unless there is severe weather.  The general rule is that if a child is well enough to come to the Center, he/she is well enough to go outside.  However, if the family or teacher(s) have good reasons for not wanting the child outside that day, it must be discussed with the director before any decisions are made.

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 […]
