Fall Time at So Le Hi Kid Care!

Hello Everyone!!

Here we are entering the 4th week of school and the month of September is almost over!! We seem to have a fairly smooth transition from the fun of summer to back to school!!

Just a few things to mention that are upcoming and as always a few reminders!!!

Reminders: Please call or email if your child will not be coming in the morning or returning to Kid Care after school!!

Monthly payment is due the first Friday of each month. Thanks to all of you for being so prompt with your September payments!

Please remember to label all of your child's personal belongings! Now that we are getting into jacket season it is really important that all of your child's things are labeled.

Girls: Please make sure they have legging, shorts, tights, etc. on underneath their dresses or skirts.

Everyone: Sneakers are the better choice for outdoor play. We will continue going outside as long as the weather permits.

A explanation/clarification about our homework room. The homework room is open Monday-Thursday from approximately 4:00-5:00. We fill it on a first come basis, with 12 children at one time. This number is mandated by the state of Pennsylvania. As children finish their homework, their spot is filled with other children needing to do their homework. The preference would be that a child does their "written" homework in the homework room before going back to read. This way if a child does need some guidance there is a staff member available to help.

Upcoming: The Kid Care "Giving Tree" is about to be filled! Those of you new to Kid Care, this is the tree on the wall near the payment box. The tree has items that are used very frequently here at Kid Care. We are non-profit, so every little bit helps us out!! You and your child may choose as many items from the tree to donate to Kid Care as you would like. If you have chosen a snack food item, please remember that with kindergarten we are feeding anywhere from 50-65 children on any given afternoon! It is explained to the children that they must pick from the tree with an adult! Thank you in advance for your donations.....they really do make a difference!

NO SCHOOL- FRIDAY OCTOBER 9TH & MONDAY OCTOBER 12TH. Kid Care does plan to be open both days. Will your child need care? Please let me know ASAP, so that we can plan and staff accordingly. Just a reminder, there is an additional charge for these days. If you commit to coming, and do not you are still responsible for payment.

Open Position-Do you know of anyone who enjoys playing with children?!!! There is a 5 day a week afternoon (3:30-6) position open that I need to fill. Additional hours will also be available on days there is no school. The responsibilities include engaging children in educational and creative activities, and ensuring the safety and well-being of the children. Clearances are required. Please let me know if you know of anyone who fits this description or have them contact me here at Kid Care.

Have a great week!
