Welcome to Country Kids Childrens' Center, Inc
Our facility features large classrooms and a spacious indoor play area that allows the children to get exercise every day, regardless of the weather. Outside features include large play structure with soft surfacing, separate fenced, shaded play area for the infants and toddlers, gazebo, playhouses, and splash pad.
Country Kids provides educational programs, organized field trips, transportation to and from local schools, nutritious meals and snacks, and qualified teachers and staff. State Assistance is welcomed.
Happy Summer! We have a lot of fun planned with our “Under the Seas” theme this month, including the beginning of our Water Days and Field Trips. Water Day varies and is scheduled for each age group except our June Bug room. Lady Bugs, Owls, and Eagles will participate in the field trips. The calendars for the activities are posted in the lobby, and are also available here on our website. Please check the calendar and bring your child prepared so they can participate in the days activities. Each child must have a signed permission slip and follow the field trip guidelines.
Since our weather is warmer, and we go outside daily, so be sure your child is properly prepared for the days activities. Bring an extra set of clothes in a ziplock bag to keep in their cubby. Please label all of your child's items with their name or initials to prevent mix-up. Bring a blanket for quiet time, and if you desire, you may bring a small pillow or stuffed animal.
Please help us keep your children well by using hand sanitizer when you enter the building. Wash your child's hands with soap and water. Do not bring your child to daycare if he is ill. Everyone's help is appreciated to prevent the spread of illness in our center and community.
CHILD DEVELOPMENT THOUGHTS:
Recent brain research indicates that birth to age three are the most important years in a child’s development. Here are some tips to consider during your child’s early years:
Be warm, loving, and responsive.
Talk, read, and sing to your child.
Establish routines and rituals.
Encourage safe explorations and play.
Make TV watching selective.
Use discipline as an opportunity to teach.
Recognize that each child is unique.
Choose quality child care and stay involved.
Take care of yourself.
WE WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, JULY 4, FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY, AND MONDAY, JULY 25, FOR PIONEER DAY. WE APPRECIATE THE SACRIFICES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE BY THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE US.
HAVE A FUN AND SAFE SUMMER!
