What is happening at TOW!

From TOW family to yours!

JULY 2020, NEWSLETTER

Dear Parents,


Happy 4th of July!
We plan to “Celebrate America” with your children as we learn about some of the important American symbols of our great country. We also learn the importance to respect lives and other people no matter race.
 
Closed for Independence Day
Friday, July 3rd

TEACHING TIME!
Although our themes are fun, there is no less learning going on.
  We are still learning about letters, counting, graphing, and patterning…learning to follow directions, building social skills, and positive relationships with adults other than family.

This month we will talk about: Dinosaurs! Yeah, everyone’s favorite!!! We will be learning about T-Rex. We will be have a Jurassic Park Week. We will have many activities set-up for the children to enjoy learning about dinosaurs in a variety of ways. The third week we will have a carnivore/herbivore tasting party. The last week we will focus on Pteranodons, the flying dinosaur!

Sign Language and Yoga Class every week

READING TIME!
Look for Books
The best way to learn which books your child enjoys is to read children’s books—lots of them!
Check out our recommendations. Get to know your local librarians and ask for their recommendations as well.
Some titles: The Little Ice Cream Truck by Margery Cuyler; Roller Coaster by Marla Frazee; It’s a Firefly Night by Dianne Ochiltree; Red, White, and Boom! by Lee Wardlaw; Jump, Frog, Jump! by Roger Kalan; Over and Under the Pond by Kate Messner.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

VPK Parents will receive an email with VPK new school year’s instructions. Keep checking the “spam” folder in case you do not receive the email in July.

DEALING WITH COVID-19!
 
TOW is taking several safety precautions at our facility, while acknowledging the difficulty of maintaining social distance among kids. Part of the experience of coming to a child-care center is that social experience. 
Extra health routines are in use since March, but the precautions really begin at arrival, when children will undergo health checks. We really, first and foremost, are looking to make sure that the children who are attending the program are healthy, and the same is true for our staff. 
The last few months have been “incredibly challenging” for families as parents balance productivity at work and being the primary daytime caregiver for their kids. Our current families and a lot of new ones are starting to bring their children regardless of whether their offices are reopening. 

Here we are, continuing our work.
We together, will overcome this moment.
