Although I'm not their parent,
I care for them each day.
I cuddle, sing, and read to them,
And watch them as they play.

I see each new accomplishment,
And help them grow and learn,
I understand their language,
And I listen with concern.

They come to me for comfort,
And I wipe away the tears,
They proudly show their work to me,
I give the loudest cheers!

I know someday the time may come,
When we will have to part,
But every child I've cared for
Is forever in my heart!

Our child care program is only for students  enrolled in preschool.

Day Care Entrance

Enter the gate on the East side of the building and follow the sidewalk to door. In the afternoon, and on Mondays, please use the day care entrance to drop off or pick up your child.

Always Sign In/Out

We are required to have you sign your child in and out each day.  On preschool days, sign your child in at their preschool room and out in day care.  On Mondays, you can sign your child in and out in the day care room.

 

 

Food

* Breakfast should be eaten at home.
* Little Treasures provides a morning and afternoon snack.
* Day care students need to bring a healthy lunch from home.  Little Treasures provides milk, so no other drink is needed.
* Lunches may be stored in the kitchen refrigerator.
* We are happy to microwave lunch foods.
* Please make sure your child’s lunch is nutritious – candy is greatly discouraged!
* Be realistic about child size portions – children often eat less lunch than expected.

Rules

Napping

Napping is not a child’s favorite part of the day, but most 3-year-olds and many 4-year-olds still need an afternoon nap.  We have both a napping and a non-napping room in our day care area.  However, because all children need a rest from their active mornings, we ask all of our day care students to rest on individual cots after lunch each day (even if they don’t sleep).

Toys from Home
A comforting toy from home is welcome.  However, we ask that you do not bring electronic toys or toys that promote violence, and we cannot be responsible for lost or broken toys.  If competition for a toy causes problems, we’ll put the toy away.

Media Policy
Little Treasures Preschool understands that TV and other electronic media can get in the way of exploring, playing, and interacting with others. Therefore we will restrict screen time by allowing no more than 15 minutes of educational screen time per day (iPad/Kindle), and not allowing any screen time during meals and snacks.  Soothing music or a quiet educational movie may be played at nap time for less than an hour.

DON’T BE LATE!
Little Treasures closes at 5:30 p.m. and all children should have been picked up at that time.  If you’re going to be late, call and let us know so that children and teachers don’t worry.  We will excuse the first time you are late, but will charge $15 thereafter.  This fee is used to pay our teachers’ overtime expenses.

PAYMENT TERMS & CONDITIONS
You will be billed for day care at the beginning of each month.  Payment is due by the 10th of the month (or nearest business day thereafter).  Beginning on the 11th, a late fee of $3.00 per business day will be charged.  If full payment is not received by month’s end, your child may not be allowed in day care and the bill will be sent to collections.   All collection and late fees are the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
