9th Meeting Board of Directors

November 1st, 2017 (for October)

Months in Review

 October was very fun and busy month for us at the daycare. We started our Music classes and gymnastics this month. All groups were busy with making crafts and decorations for Thanksgiving and then Halloween. On Halloween day all children and even the teachers were dressed up and were ready for trick or treating fun. After schoolers also came to daycare to get their candies for Halloween. We also decided to do board decorating completion among the teachers/classrooms. Winning board will receive surprise for classroom teacher and students.


A few Remainders…


Shoes Off at the Door: I want to thank all parents for continuing taking their shoes off and keeping our floors as clean as possible during the rash hours. This is a mandatory requirement and I am encouraging to keep it up.  


Days are getting colder: Pease have an extra hoody or a sweater in your child’s cubby: our building is old and feels cooler in the morning, so please have warm sweater for your children to wear if needed.     

Also, if you have extra snowsuit, hat or mittens that your child has outgrown, and would like to donate it for the daycare, we would be happy to take those off your hands. Sometimes children are not dressed appropriate for the weather, therefore having extra outfits at the daycare will allow us to carry on with our daily outings and yet stay warm and cozy.



Month ahead:


November is also the time when we start getting ready for our Christmas concert. After the second week of November, children will get busy decorating their classrooms learning the songs and play for their concert in December.


November 13th daycare will be closed for Remembrance Day.

In November we also starting to prepare our files and the building for ECE; Health and Fire inspections, although this year, since we are moving, I am not sure if the ECE will request Fire and health inspection.

In November, we are also getting ready to prepare our financial statements for another review.
