Monthly Bible Words: "O GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD"  Psalms 106:1

outdoor cold weather play

If the temperature or wind chill is 10 degrees or below, the children will not go outside for play. Check with your child's teacher about the scheduled outdoor days. ALL children must have the appropriate cold-weather clothing to play outside.


Remember to label ALL outdoor clothing and place all items in one large bag. Please continue to work at home with your child with getting their outerwear on themselves.


PARKING LOT SAFETY

SLOW, one-way driving through our parking lot is requested for safety. Please be extra careful while driving by the preschool entrance as the door and sidewalk are so close to the parking lot. We ask that you please not drive through the portico at the front of the church as this may cause unsafe traffic flow during our drop-off and pick-up times. Thank you.


IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK

We care about the health and safety of all children. Please keep your child home if they have:

  • been experiencing respiratory distress; active cough; thick discharge from the nose
  • vomited in the last 24 hrs
  • pink eye
  • head lice
  • had loose stools in the last 24 hrs
  • a bacterial infection (like strep, impetigo) and have not been on antibiotics for 24 hrs
  • 100 degree temperature of un-diagnosed origin


Play is foundational to children's development and learning.
