CHILD CARE CENTER NEWS
The month of May brings with it sunshine and fun and means we are a month closer to summer! The children will spend their time playing outside in the play yards or going on walks through town. Sometimes, the older classrooms will take walks to the local parks to play. The children will learn about gardens and how sunshine and water help to keep them healthy. They will make different crafts to represent the season like handprint butterflies and thumbprint caterpillars. The children will also make special crafts this month for Mother’s Day to show their Mom’s how much they love and appreciate them. Our Spring Program will take place Thursday, May 18th in Fellowship Hall at 6:00 p.m. The theme for the program this year will be patriotic and the children will sing songs about our flag and America. After the show our friends and families are invited to enjoy tasty snacks with good conversations.
We wish all Mothers, Grandmothers, and anyone that is like Mother a very Happy Mother’s Day & we wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day; thank you to all those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom!!

CHILD CARE PROGRAMS
INFANT ROOM (6 weeks to 12 months) Parents are responsible to bring in all diapers, 1 pack of wipes per month, formula, baby food, and if nursed each bottle must be brought in ready to serve. Children will stay in the infant room until their first birthday. For transition to the Young Toddler room, they will have to be weaned off the bottle and drink from a sippy cup, eat all table food, and morning naps will be dropped.
YOUNG TODDLER ROOM (12 to 26 months) Parents are responsible to bring in all diapers and 1 pack of wipes per month. The children will transition to a cot and weaned off pacifiers at least 2 months prior to their second birthday.
OLDER TODDLER ROOM (26 to 39 months) Parents are responsible to bring in all diapers and 1 pack of wipes per month. At least 3 months prior to their third birthday we ask that you start potty training. They must be fully potty trained before transitioning up to the PreSchool class. They will need to learn some basic self-help skills, such as: wiping themselves and pulling up their pants. We will help them in the beginning and then guide them as time goes on.
PRESCHOOL ROOM (39 to 52 months) Children must be able to use the bathroom facilities without help, they will learn self-help skills, such as: zipping, buttoning, and snapping. They will be introduced to a letter a week and work on shapes, colors, and cutting. A lot of the activities in the classroom are child initiated.
PRE-K ROOM (4 years to first day of Kindergarten) Children will be preparing for Kindergarten. They will learn how to print the alphabet correctly, print their names, learn their addresses and phone numbers, read sight words, and improve their fine motor skills.
