Child Care Chalkboard

February 1-29

Theme of the Month: Dental Health Month

Lion's Vision Screening

A volunteer from the Lion's Club will be performing a quick vision screening on all children who are in attendance on the morning of Monday, February 3rd. Please let your child's classroom teacher know if you do NOT want your child to participate in this screening.

Big Sky Pediatric Dentistry

We will not be able to visit the dentist office until March this year. We will be going on March 6. Each class will be going separately at the times listed in the field trip section of the March Newsletter. While there we learn about foods that are healthy for our teeth. They also explain proper brushing techniques and what will happen when they visit the dentist for a check-up.

Valentine's Day Parties

Each class will have their own party with the following plans:

RP: We will provide a sign-up form for those who would like to bring treats for our 10:00 party. You may send 10 Valentine's cards with your child's name in the "From" section. Please leave the "To" blank so that your child can pass them out.

WW: We will provide a sign-up form for those who would like to bring treats for our 10:00 party. You may send 17 Valentine's cards with your child's name in the "From" section. Please leave the "To" blank so that your child can pass them out.

BDC: We will provide a sign-up form for those who would like to bring treats for our 10:00 party. You may send 17 Valentine's cards with your child's name in the "From" section. Please leave the "To" blank so that your child can pass them out. This will be a Teddy Bear Picnic, so your child may bring a favorite Teddy bear or stuffed animal from home. This animal will sit beside your child for the party and then return home at the end of the day.

BH: We will provide a class list so that your child can fill in Valentine's Cards for friends. (There are a total of 23 children in our class.) You may also send enough treats for 10 children for our party at 10:00.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

The Butterfly Class was beginning a unit on bears. During a class discussion, one of the teachers asked the children to tell what they know about bears. One of the children said, "Oh, I know. Bears eat buffalo." Another child raised his hand and said, "But not if it's spicy!"

Cold & Flu Season--Sick Policy

For the protection of all the children, and our staff, your child should be kept at home if signs of illness are showing such as:

a. Temperature of 101 degrees or more; or 100 degrees if other symptoms are present (must be fever free without medication for 24 hours before returning)

b. Sore or discharging eyes, ears or throat

c. Intestinal disturbance, diarrhea, or vomiting (must be free of symptoms for 24 hours before returning)

Snow Days
