CHILD CARE CENTER NEWS
The month of March has arrived and that means time to think spring! We start out the month wearing our red, black, and white for Dr. Seuss Day. The classrooms will make crafts and the teachers will read some of their favorite Dr. Seuss stories to the children. The rest of the month everyone will be busy decorating the hallways for St. Patrick’s Day. The children will sing songs about marching leprechauns and green shamrocks. The halls and bulletin boards will be filled with different types of festive crafts like pots of gold and lucky horseshoes. On the 17th we will wear our Irish smiles, our favorite green shirt, and eat green pancakes and applesauce for lunch. Throughout the rest of the month the classrooms will discuss and look for the approaching signs of spring. We all hope for warmer weather so we can get outside and play.

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.
KINDERGARTEN—The children will work on improving writing skills and reading more sight words. All children must attend Sheckler Elementary School.
SCHOOL AGE—The children will be given a snack, have an opportunity to do their homework, and relax. Children are enrolled until completion of the 4th Grade.
