Our Summer program will begin on Tuesday, July 6 and run for eight fun filled weeks. Things are looking a little different this year because of the NJ State requirements, but we hope that this will be temporary. Our staff is flexible and willing to provide the best experience for your child while maintaining strict health and safety guidelines.
Unless the state lifts the current guidelines, the following will be observed:
Upon arrival to the school, you will park in the parking lot and bring your child to the front door. We will conduct a health survey, including a temperature check. It would be helpful for you to take your child’s temperature before leaving for school.
Children will be in one group and not mingle with other groups. Lunches will be eaten together with the Teacher in the classroom. Supplies will not be shared. Therefore, we ask that you either supply the needed items, or purchase them from us. Please see the Supply List and State Requirements for Programs to Reopen.
All forms and permissions must be completed, signed, and returned before the start of the program.
Universal Health Care Record (if record on file is > 1 year)
Immunization Record (if record on file is > 1 year)
If you are new to the school, the above, plus the following, must be completed and returned:
Each day your child should bring a lunch labeled with his/her name on it. Please use a lunch box with a washable surface as we will be sanitizing all items brought from home. A morning and afternoon snack will be provided. If you are arriving prior to 8:00 am, breakfast will be provided. Note: No lunches will be heated or chilled due to classroom restrictions. Please provide an ice pack for cold items, and a thermos if you wish for your child to have a hot meal.
Pizza Days are back on Tuesdays and Fridays…see your teacher for more information.
If your child is beginning to potty train and is prone to accidents, please use pull ups.
On your child’s first day of school, please send a labeled plastic bag containing a change of clothes, and diapers/pull ups, if needed. If your child will be staying after 1 pm, please send in a small pillow and blanket for our daily” quiet time” in a plastic bag labeled with their name.
For your child’s safety, children should wear rubber soled, sturdy shoes to school such as sneakers. Flip flops, backless sandals, dress up shoes, crocs, and similar style shoes, make it difficult for the children when they are playing outdoors or doing large muscle activities in the classroom. Children who do not have the proper foot attire will not be allowed on the climbing equipment or participate in large muscle activities.
Children should also wear clothing that they can actively play in without worrying if they will be in trouble for getting dirty. We do many hands-on activities with the children and do take precautions, but your help would be appreciated.
We look forward to seeing your child this summer. We are planning lots of fun activities, while building lasting friendships with others.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
