FEBRUARY 2023

Welcome to all our new families.  We are glad to have you join the Ready, Set, Grow family.

Our Mission Statement

We are committed to an environment where each child can grow emotionally, intellectually, socially, and physically through exploration and hands-on learning opportunities.

Important Dates

February 20: Closed for President’s Day

Reminders

  • Please ensure your child has at least two changes of clothes in his/her cubby in case of accidents.

  • Please remember to check the spare clothing in your child’s cubby or diaper bag to ensure that we have the appropriate sizes.

  • Make sure that your child’s belongings are labeled with their names.

  • We have some children that are eating lunch from the kitchen, but we ask that you still bring food to store in their cubbies for backup.

  • For the children who eat breakfast, we ask that you please provide the cereal.

  • We will start introducing sippy cups to children that are at least 6 months and up. We will only put water in the cups unless your child has been introduced to whole milk. We will provide the cups, but you are welcome to bring your own.

  • Please make sure that your child has a supply of diapers and wipes.

  • All medicine, hand sanitizer, and diaper cream are not allowed in diaper bags unless we have proper medical authorization for their use.

  • When signing in and out, please sign your child’s and your first and last names.
