Flu and cold season is officially upon us and unfortunately, and at times, it seems the only things little children are willing to share are germs!
Please click here to visit the CDC’s “ACTION STEPS” for fighting the flu!
At preschool, we are taking every measure possible to prevent the spread of germs at school such as disinfecting surfaces and toys with an EPA approved, school-friendly disinfectant, washing hands regularly, and as required by law, checking students daily for signs of sickness. Students who exhibit symptoms will be sent home to recover.
We appreciate every parent who has been proactive in checking their child(ren) daily for signs of sickness before coming to school. Please remember to keep your child home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of sickness, including lethargy, fever, vomiting, coughing, sneezing, excessive crankiness, disrupted sleep patterns, etc.
If your child does get sick, please remember that there is a mandatory 24 hour waiting period after the final symptoms of fever, vomiting, or diarrhea without the aid of medication.
Finally, if your child does exhibit signs of the flu, it is highly encouraged to see a doctor right away as your child may be eligible for an anti-viral that will shorten the duration of the sickness.
Greetings Room 5 Families!
We have been very busy in Room 5 getting to know each other, learning our new jobs, and even learning the fruits of spirit! Although our little ones are small they are definitely mighty and eager to learn new things everyday. We are learning how to take turns (self control), use our words and show kindness with our friends. It is hard for a two year old to use their words so we are there to help them navigate through any problem or struggle they come into contact with so they are more confident in the struggles they face later on.
We have also been using our muscles in the big yard by climbing outside on the structure, riding bikes in the bike area, and running with friends. We are working with our sorting cups, play dough, and building with different types of blocks.
Enjoy the pictures below! 🙂
Splish splash! Summer is here! Here is a video of our friends water playing at the big school yard. We got to run around the field and make fun memories with our friends. We also got a yummy cold treat after! Hope everyone is staying cool~ 😎☀️
Hello from Room 5!
We have been quite busy this past week; dying eggs, making rice crispy eggs and hearing the Easter story.
Each of our friends had the opportunity to dye an egg by picking out the food coloring(s) they wanted and placing a few drops on a scoop of rice. Next, they placed the egg on the rice, closed the container, and shook it! Each egg that was decorated had a very unique design!
After we dyed the eggs, we all had the chance to make some yummy rice crispy treats and put it inside a plastic egg!
We have all heard the Easter story, and I know that God is working in our little ones lives and they are able to recall most of the story! Blessings to you all!
