The info packet explains our program, our rates,our policies and has instructions for registering.
The Contract includes all pages which you must fill out and present for registration. On the back of the contract page is a check list. Please complete this, as your registration will not be considered complete without all necessary forms. Since we are licensed by the state, and want to do the best job possible serving your family, there are many forms!
And yes, even if you registered this summer, or last school year we need it all again, even health forms. Thanks, we know it is tedious, but we want to do the best job for you!

Our Covid-19 Safety protocols.
Our Covid-19 Safety protocols.
We have been working very hard getting the building ready, with new indoor and outdoor tables for greater distancing while eating, and many other new additions like motion sensor soap dispensers, faucets, etc. to help keep the children and staff safe! (A few are still in process) We have many new curriculum activities as well, that should provide fun while remaining safe. And we have an awesome new walkway!
When dropping off, please come to the front door and knock. A staff will come to greet you, ask a few questions, and take your child's temperature, then if all seems fine, present you with the sign in/out sheet, and escort your child in. Please be prepared to use your own pen if possible. On the first day we will give you a handout that shows the questions we will ask so that in the future you can be ready. If you see someone at the door, please wait until that child in inside before approaching the door. We will be following NH DHHS protocols for symptom assessment and allowance into the program on a daily basis. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping children with symptoms at home.
Please do not allow your children to bring toys from home. We have enough. (and many new things) Exception would be for Kindergartners or new young children who need a stuffie or other transitional object.
We will all wear masks in the building, except for eating. As much as possible we will plan to be outside, where they can be removed, but as at school, we will try to maintain a safe distance from each other. Outdoors we will take them off, and the children will be shown how to fold them with the inside remaining inside, and we have labelled pocket holders to store them in safely. We hate wearing them too!
We, like school plan to have small groups of children associate with the same teachers, and other children. All toys the children use will be sanitized between usage by different groups. (Our attendance is very low at this point, so this will not be as necessary at first)
We will serve breakfast as usual, however we will definitely stagger eating (though our new tables allow for better distancing). Children will then have the choice to eat when we call them, but not have total freedom to ask for food whenever they feel like eating.
We will walk the children directly to their pods in the morning, and pick them up there in the afternoon. In the afternoon at pick up at PES, we will ask each child how they feel, and take their temperature. Very important - If a child seems to ahve any symptoms that could be related to Covid-a9 (even if it is not), including a temperature of 100.4 degrees or above, we need to isolate them, call you, and have you come and pick them up asap.

We will isolate them (kindly, of course) outside if possible, and inside in our cozy play loft if need be, and never alone. So, it is very important that we have accurate phone numbers and the ability to reach you, or a designated emergency contact right away if need be. Also, if your child has any current medical issues (like fall allergies - as I do - ragweed is NOT my friend) please tell us about them beforehand, on a daily basis, as runny nose is a symptom the state wants us to send a child home for. I feel that because the children will be at school all day, this won't be a problem, as their symptoms, if any, will probably have already shown up during the day.
If we have forgotten to ask, please be sure we know your child's pod color and teacher on the first day of school. (a few of you registered before that was known)
When picking up your child, again, knock at the front door and someone will escort your child out. Since we may be outside in the back, you can also come around there, where we will also have the sign in out sheet. But please maintain a safe distance.
We have plenty of masks for your use, or the children's if their masks are lost or broken when they arrive.
As I said, our attendance is very low compared to other years, which is understandable with everyone's slow transition and concerns. We will soon be putting our paperwork out for the remote period sign up for full day care. We do need to get enrollment up to be able to sustain our program, so please share our information with friends if possible! AND LIKE US AND SHARE ON FACEBOOK. I will be putting some information on facebook, and if you can share that would be very helpful!
Here's to a great and healthy school year!
Maria and the staff
