November 2019
            It is hard to believe the holiday season is right around the corner!  Where did the year go?  Remember that the daycare will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 28 and 29, for Thanksgiving.  Both of these days are paid holidays at the daycare.  Looking ahead into December, also remember that the daycare will be closed from Tuesday, December 24, clear though Wednesday, January 1, opening again on January 2.  Of those 7 weekdays, December 24, 25, and January 1 are paid holidays at the daycare but the other 4 days I am taking as unpaid vacation days.
            During November, the children will spend one week focusing on identifying, writing, and learning the sounds that letters make, one week learning about germs and how to stay healthy, one week enjoying instruments and music, and one week celebrating all we are thankful for at Thanksgiving. 
            As we enter cold and flu season, let's work together to help us all stay healthy.  At daycare,  I remind the children to keep toys and hands out of their mouths, cough into their elbow instead of their hands, use tissues and throw them away, and wash wash wash those hands often and well.  Please try to reinforce these good habits at your home too.  These healthy habits, along with nutritious meals and appropriate amounts of sleep, should keep the kids healthier this winter, which keeps us adults healthier too!
