Thanks for you for remembering that the center is a “nut free” zone.   
With so many celebrations on the horizon, the important thing to remember is to read the label of every food item you send to school with your child for a party or special event. Many foods which we do not think contain nuts, or nut products have in fact been made in the same factories
​as nut containing foods and are
​therefore considered to be
contaminated. When reading labels
look for ingredients listed, but also look
for statements such as, “may contain traces of nuts.”

Happy February! Please be sure to sign up for your conference with your child's teacher. These are essential to helping you understand your child's development and discuss any pertinent information that cannot be addressed during the normal pick up and drop off times. If you are unable to sign up for one of the available times, please make arrangements with the teachers to meet at an alternate time. These conferences are an important aspect of our curriculum and I strongly encourage you to take advantage of them.

                 Groundhog Day is February 2nd. According to folklore, if the                      weather is cloudy when the groundhog emerges, then spring                    will come early. If it is sunny, the groundhog will see its                            shadow, and winter will continue for another six
weeks. Either way, please remember to keep weather
appropriate clothing (jacket, hat, mittens, etc.) in your child’s.
​When we go outside, it is important to make sure everyone
​is warm and layered
