The kids will be going for walks and buggy rides soon. Please bring mittens/hats for being outside. In the infant room, if your babies come in car seats with built in zipper blankets you should still have a coat, mittens, socks and shoes for the morning walks. Also remember to label all items of clothing so we know who they belong to.

Childcare News for May
Spring, Spring, Spring! Such wonderful words for the children who have been wanting to play in their outside play area. The babies like sitting in the grass or sand, feeling the new sensations. The toddlers love scooping sand in the sandbox, riding scooter bikes, playing in the toy houses. Their playground is the fenced in area in-between school and Pastor's house. The 3/4/5's play on the cement pad and swings, and the school aged kids play on the metal play structure.
Our teachers have the kids making such creative projects for spring and Mother's Day. Our decorated hallways are proof of that, walk down our hallway and see!
Child care is open for the summer. Summer care contracts are soon available.
Sign-up so that child rooms/staffing can be assigned. What a fun summer we have planned.
Garage Sale Finds: We are asking for old pots and pans for sandbox play. We can always use books since ours get chewed on and well used. Good Barbies and Kens, princess anything, and pretend clothes such as crazy hats, work gloves, shirts, ties are welcomed. We are looking for a double stroller for our infants.
Michigan Child Care Center Food Program
We are in full swing with our new Michigan Child Care Center Food Program. Our menu’s are planned with credible foods which meet state guidelines. Meals and snacks are served in an appropriate time schedule. Attendance is marked for every meal. Families are to yearly complete eligibility statements. Trinity child care is then accountable for providing every child with age appropriate meals and snacks to meet their needs.
Child CareInfant/Toddlers and Preschool group children are to bring in your own child's blanket for rest time. You may keep your child's blanket in their basket for the week, but please take them home at the end of the week and wash them. Remember to bring them back in again at the start of a new week.
Schedules are to be complete Thursday afternoons. Each child has 6 sick/absent days allowed each year before being charged for the day absent. Child Care scheduling is done on Thursday afternoons. If your child is to be absent please call the center so staffing will know and not worry about your child's absence. We have an answering machine if you call after school hours. Your family will be scheduled according to your contracted days. If your schedule changes please give notice before Thursday noon. If your schedule changes after our child/staff schedule time you will be billed for the day booked.
