OFF THE DIRECTOR'S DESK

never leavePlease be sure to never leave your kids unattended in a car.

In an effort to reduce the number of child deaths in Florida from children being forgotten in hot cars, we will now be calling to check on each child if they are not at school. To help us with this effort, if your child is sick or you have a planned absence please give us a call and let us know that your child will be absent. Check the flyer

We will be offering a 4 year old extension program starting June 4th-July 27th.

We are excited that 7 children will be “continuing” their VPK experiences and be able to practice their developmental skills for kindergarten during the summer months. 

Ms. Yadira will be teaching the class.

PARENTING

ReadingTIPS TO ENCOURAGING SUMMER READING

Make sure your kids have plenty of books. Take your kids to the library or the bookstore to pick out some interesting new books. Go to yard sales, and sort through the books there. Organize a book swap in your neighborhood. Do whatever you need to do to keep a fresh supply of books around.

Always pack up books, magazines or newspapers whenever you go somewhere, for your kids and for yourself. Make sure your kids see you reading, whether it's on the beach, while waiting for the softball game to start, or at home.

Try to keep some time available for reading. This is perhaps the hardest thing, as schedules fill up with sports, cookouts, trips and movies. These are all fun, too. But there's no substitute for the occasional afternoon spent under a tree exploring far-off worlds through books.

Encourage social reading. If your child wants to read a book because other kids are reading it, by all means get a copy. This reinforces the idea that reading is cool, and gives your child a chance to talk about the book with others. Take the kids to see a movie based on a book, and also read the book. Do whatever you can to make reading cool and social.


BAD WEATHER

tornadoChild Care of Southwest Florida follows the Hendry 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.


CONGRATULATIONS!
