These meetings are the perfect opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your child's progress.
Reminders... Please make sure to empty your child’s bluebucket every night. Please check your child's cubby for a warm spare set of clothing. (Sweatpants, sweatshirt, long sleeve shirts, socks, and underwear.) Winter is Here The Tiger Class does go outside unless the temperature and the wind chill factor are below 15 degrees, it is raining, snowing hard or too icy. The children enjoy going outside and this time gives them the opportunity to exercise their muscles and engage in gross motor play while getting plenty of fresh air.Please make sure that your child has appropriate outdoor clothing- a warm hat, gloves or mittens, and snow pants and boots if there is snow on the ground.Label all items.
