Thank you for entrusting your babies and toddlers to us on Wednesday mornings...they are precious in God’s sight and in ours. We strive to give them the best possible love and care we can, even if it’s not the one-on-one attention that you give at home.
In order for them to remain happy and comfortable, we ask that you please provide the following items (each labeled with your child’s name) in a diaper bag:
A complete change of clothing (including socks) in a gallon size zip lock bag. (The bag keeps everything sanitary when returning any soiled clothing.)
A bib/burp cloth
A blanket or attachment item
A pacifier (if they use one)
A bottle or sippy cup (labeled with your child’s name)
In order to provide a safe and enjoyable time for all child(ren), we ask you to take note of the following:
1. Should your child not feel well, or have a cold, please make other arrangements for them that day.
2. Please mark all belongings with your child’s name: diaper bag, Sippy cup, etc.
3. As the weather becomes cooler, please leave any coats with your child for recess purposes.
4. When you arrive, take your child/children to their appropriate rooms. Do that before going to the refreshment table. (They will receive snacks in the middle of the morning). Please do not linger in their room.
5. In case of a fire alarm sounding: Mothers of babies and toddlers should go immediately to the nursery to pick up your children, and proceed to the nearest exit. Do not cross a fire line to reach the nursery. In that situation, caregivers will take babies and toddlers outside to meet their mothers. Children ages 2 and above will be taken out of the building by their teachers and mothers should meet them outside.
6. Please promptly pick up your children at 11:30 am so that our sitters may be released. We know you love to catch up with friends and trust you can do so with active kids at your side and for as long as you like! :) Because space is limited in the room, please be aware of how many mothers are already picking up their children and wait outside the door if necessary.
Please know that we are always open to your suggestions which help us improve our ministry to your children. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to call Shannon at 717.468.3278.
Thank you for helping us with these preparations.
