January: With the start of a new year we have decided to start the year off with the topic Caring as our Character Trait!
Each group will discuss about what it means to be caring and come up with some ideas on how we can be caring towards others.

Here is a link called "What Makes Kids Care? "
New Field trip Information
Field trips for the school year will fall into two categories.
1. Pre-paid field trips
2. Typical field trips
Prepaid field trips will not be able to be canceled once the sign up period is completed.  If you sign up for this non-school day with a prepaid field trip and end up not coming you will still be charged the non-school day rate and field trip fee.
Typical field trips can be cancelled one week prior to the day of the field trip.  If you cancel at least one week prior you will not be charged for the field trip or at the non-school day rate.  If the non-school day is a contracted day a comp day can be requested. Cancellations with less than a one week notice will be charged the non-school day rate and field trip cost. 

January 1st- New Years Day ~ School and Kids Co CLOSED

January 20th- MLK Day!

We will also be collecting items to donate to the food shelf below is some items the food shelf accepts:

Baby Food

Priority Cold weather items: soups, stews, chili, hot cereal, cocoa, tea, and coffee. Personal care items such as toothbrushes (single pack, please, we cannot break a multiple pack apart), toothpaste, deodorant (men’s and woman’s), bar soap, shampoo, and women’s personal items such as tampax.  Many of our clients are pursuing finding work and personal hygiene care is critical.

Hearty soups that can be added to rice or noodles to make a meal are needed.  Canned meals that children like such as Beef Ravioli are needed for the winter.  Other “kid-friendly” items are also welcomed

Please remember to pack a morning/afternoon snack as well as a home lunch with your child if they are attending the non-school days

Don't forget to bring your snow gear for playing outside!

If your schedule has changed and you no longer need care during the Non-school days please let your site lead know ASAP

Don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook! We post updates on any important upcoming events like Non-school days, and school closings, along with fun pictures

Winter is here with the potential Early Emergency Dismissal from schools. Which means with Kids CO if school is closed on a day your child is contracted for then your child may come to kids co, but unfortunately if school closes on a day your child is not contracted for then your child can not attend Kids CO due to numbers and staff.

With winter finally here we ask that the preschoolers bring a jacket, hats, snow pants, boots, and waterproof mittens to wear while playing out in the snow!

Please remember to bring your child a morning and afternoon snack! What we have found that works great is a giant baggie with prepackaged snacks that stays in their lockers!
