OFF THE DIRECTOR'S DESK

pen-and-paper.jpgThis month will be my one year anniversary working at Child Care of Southwest Florida as the Director of Children’s Garden.  I am incredibly proud of the hard work everyone has put in to build our school up, we have achieved so many of the goals I had set to reach in my first year.  We have grown so much and truly become a school family.  Thank you all for such a wonderful year, staff, families, children, and everyone I have met along the way.  There is no way we would be where we are today without you all! 

VOLUNTEERS ROCK!

We want to give a big thank you to Gary and Jeanne who volunteered at our center.  They were a great help and were able to accomplish so many things we have been needing and wanting to do around the center. 

Mr. Gary helped finish repairing the facia on our building and painted it to match, he built our pallet planters so the children can plant flowers in the spring and repaired our mailbox.  Mrs. Jeanne organized our shed, repainted the sign on Main St, and cleaned our sign on Hall St.  Thank you so much!

Potty Training

Potty learning is something you do with your child. You are helping your child learn a very important skill. Teaching your child to use the toilet takes time, understanding and patience. You should not rush your child into using the toilet.

How do I know if my child is ready to start potty training?  Check out the link for a few tips.

YOU DID IT!

Great team work with Ms. Lily, Ms. Maria, and Charlie’s parents on getting her potty trained!  Way to work together on helping her reach a big milestone.

1 small carton of yogurt

Place strawberries, raspberries and juice in blender. Blend several seconds.  If you would like a thicker smoothie add more fruit or for a drinkable smoothie add 1/4 cup more juice.  This is one of those Valentine recipes that can be used year round.
