ARRIVALS

With summer here please be sure to call the school by 8:00 am each morning to let us know if your child will not be attending for the day. 512-264-7373.

LUNCH & SNACKS

PLEASE BE SURE TO PACK ENOUGH FOOD FOR YOUR CHILD FOR THE ENTIRE DAY…

Any child arriving at school after 8:00 am should eat breakfast before arriving at school. Please be sure to follow this policy so that it does not interfere with the school curriculum that starts immediately at 8:30 am.

When packing your child’s lunch, please remember these considerations: Each child is required to bring a spill proof water bottle (Funtainers work the best) to keep in their lunch box everyday.  Please make sure it has fresh water in it before sending.

  • Age appropriateness of food item and amount of food
  • Color of food (color makes the meal attractive and provides a great learning experience)
  • How is the food packed; containers need to be appropriate for the child to experience success in taking off the lids and opening any baggies.
  • Does it need to be warmed and for how long?
  • Choking hazard?
  • High sugar content foods such as donuts, donut holes, & sweet pastry items should be avoided. NO CANDY ALLOWED AT ALL…

**Consider freezing yogurt tubes and inserting them into your child’s lunch bag.  The frozen tube will serve as an ice pack and keep food coldChildren should eat breakfast before arriving at school.  All meat and fruit should be cut in small child bite size pieces so that children will be able to feed themselves. (Staff will assist younger children.) Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m., and a snack will be served at 3:30 p.m.

CLOCK IN & CLOCK OUT:

Children must be clocked in and out daily, and are only released to names entered into our database. Once a parent checks out a child, the parent is solely responsible for supervising the child while on A New Day Child Development Center premises.   

 

 

 

 

EXTENDED SUMMER VACATIONS

We realize that summer is a time where everyone wants to take time off to spend time with their  family or to save money on childcare.  Please keep in mind, quality childcare is difficult to find, so it is important to make sure your child’s spot at A New Day CDC  is secure during your summer vacation plans. Please take into consideration that any unpaid time for vacation is a serious loss of income for the school.   The school must continue to meet all expenses incurred for the operation of the facility including keeping the staff employed.

A New Day CDC enrolls all students on a first come first serve basis.  Students who are withdrawn for the summer will be contacted as the spaces are filling up for each class to give those students and their parents’ first choice to fill that opening.  If the parent decides not to take the opening then they will be re-enrolled as a position comes available.

PLEASE BE SURE TO LET US KNOW AHEAD OF TIME IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TAKE ANY TIME OFF DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS…

REGISTRATION / SUPPLY FEES

A $250.00 supply fee is due upon admission and renewable each year thereafter on July 31st, for returning students.  All fees are non-refundable and help cover the cost of school program, along with other school, arts & crafts supplies for the year.

 

A NEW DAY CDC WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY, JULY 3RD THROUGH FRIDAY JULY 7TH

CLOTHING & PERSONAL ITEMS

ALL NEED TO BE LABELED:

Please bring everything that your child will need during the day. These include clothing, diapers, wipes, shoes, etc. For your child’s safety on the playground we do not allow any Crocs, sandals or flip-flops. (TENNIS SHOES ONLY PLEASE)   Your child will have many opportunities to experience a variety of activities.  Simple clothing that is washable will allow your child to participate comfortably in playground activities, and messy art activities.

Each child will need one complete set of clothing at the school.  Please clearly LABEL all items for easy identification such as coats, sweaters, gloves, blankets, etc.

Each child will need to bring a backpack to school each day so that they will be able to take any belongings home each day. Please pick one that is suitable enough to hold their lunch box, and any schoolwork their blanket & pillowcase along with any other belongings that will be sent home. They will also need a sleeping small pillow and a small blanket that will fit easily in their cubby with their name clearly marked on all items.

All children must come to school clean and neat. If your child is in diapers, or pull-ups please furnish enough for the entire week along with wipes.  Each child no matter if they wear diapers or not, must furnish wipes for the CDC at least every other week.

We offer a wide variety of toys to keep your child entertained throughout the day; therefore NO toys may be brought from home ONLY on Wednesday for Show & Share.  Children are allowed to bring (ONE) personal toy from home, however; the school cannot be responsible for a toy that is lost or broken.

RETURN BLANKETS & PILLOW CASES

Blankets and pillow cases are sent home every other Friday to be cleaned and sanitized by the parents.  PLEASE BE SURE TO SEND THEM BACK  the following Monday so that your child will have it for nap-time.

SUNSCREEN APPLICATIONS

During the summer months, please be sure to apply sunscreen before sending them to school each day.  We will re-apply as needed when we take them out again during the day.

 

TUESDAY WILL BE SPLASH DAYS

Each Tuesday we will be having  SPLASH DAYS during the summer months that will start on June 6th.  On these days you will be asked to send your child dressed in their swimwear and their extra change of clothes and a towel in their backpacks.  Your child will need to bring the following items to leave here for summer fun.

Please be sure to mark their name clearly on each item.

PARENT REFERRAL PROGRAM

The highest compliment our parents can pay us is the referral of family or friends for childcare at our school.  The trust and confidence that you place in us each and every day means a great deal.

In appreciation of that trust and confidence, we are excited to share our Parent Referral Program once again.  You will receive a $200.00 referral fee for every new enrollment as a result of your referral.  Each time a child is enrolled as a result of your recommendation to other parents, you will receive a $200.00 tuition credit after that child is enrolled for 4 weeks.
