4th july cookoutINDEPENDENCE DAY

The Fourth of July is our country’s birthday and your child will be excited to celebrate Independence Day.  There are many activities for families with young children such as parades, firework displays, cook-outs and dinners with family and friends. Including your children in preparing for celebrations help them feel they have an important role in making the event special.  Let them help make decorations for the Fourth of July cookout or picnic, let them prepare a dessert or snack, encourage them to organize or create a game, etc. The center will be CLOSED Wednesday, July 4 for observance of The Independence Day Holiday.  Have a great day with your family and friends celebrating at the beach, on a picnic, or watching fireworks!  Remember to be safe!        

Happy 4th Of July!

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.






1 bag (8.75 oz) Chex Mix™ Honey Nut snack mix
1/4 cup dried blueberries
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup M&M's™ chocolate candies red and blue



In a large bowl, combine the snack mix, blueberries, cranberries, and sunflower seeds.

Place the white chocolate chips into a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on High for 60-90 seconds then stir. Melt for an additional 30-60 seconds, if needed.

Drizzle the melted chocolate over the snack mix, and stir until well coated. Turn the mix out onto a large piece of wax paper, sprinkle with blue and red candies, then allow the white chocolate to stand at room temperature for about 1 hour to harden. To serve, break the mix up into large chunks.


Another great way to stay connected is our Facebook page.  If you have a personal Facebook page, find our page…….The Children’s Learning Center at FSW…… and LIKE it. Now you will be able to see activities around the center or perhaps even your child.


travelSummer is a time when you will probably be taking weekend getaways or long family vacations.  Remember to let us know when your child will not be at school.  This is especially important now that DCF requires “documentation”  when a child is absent from the center.


Our new school year starts August 10th.  Our kids will be moving into their new classrooms.  Be looking for your Up-Date Information Packets soon!!!!!
