OPEN HOUSE

open houseOpen House will be held Wednesday, August 22 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.  This is a time to see your child’s classroom and talk to the teachers.  It is a great time to experience school through your child’s eyes.  Light refreshments will be served.


BACK TO SCHOOL/Routine Time

schoolStart getting kids in bed early.  Begin a week before school gets underway.  You can't force them to sleep, but you can see they're snuggled in bed looking at books.  Lay out their clothes for the next day.

Get yourself up and ready first.  If you work outside the home, this step is crucial.  All goes more smoothly those first days when you're available to guide your children each step of the way.    

Remember your goal: You want your children up and out the door on time, and to move securely through the school day so each can reach his/her academic potential.


ShoesSHOES, SHOES, SHOES

We ask that your child wear CLOSED TOED shoes to school.  This is a safety issue.  Children are more likely to trip or fall when wearing sandals or shoes that do not properly fit.

BAD WEATHER

Child Care of Southwest Florida follows the Lee County School Board Bad Weather Closing Schedule.  Please tune into your local weather station.  If school is called off or closes early the center will follow suit.  Please be prepared for alternative care in the event of bad weather closures.
