“My Special Bedtime Routine…”
This month we travel to the cold, uniquely beautiful, northernmost regions of the Earth. Simple concepts like “nighttime” and “daytime” challenge our senses and our daily routines. For instance, in Barrow, Alaska, the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon during December and January, so it’s dark all the time except for a couple of hours every afternoon. Children adapt to playing outside and going to bed in the moonlight!
Engage in a discussion with your child about his/her special bedtime routine, then send your child to school ready to talk about it with his/her classmates. It could be a favorite song, storybook, bath toy, small pillow or blanket, night light, even a toothbrush!
Please note that your child’s Show & Tell must be able to fit into a small, plastic grocery bag and must be labeled with his/her name.
Receipts From our Fiscal Department
Kinder Works is happy to email or mail tuition payment receipts upon request. If you would like a receipt for 2018 year-end taxes, dependent care, or any other purpose, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your child’s name and with which Kinder Works you are affiliated.
Please be advised that requests could take up to 2 weeks to process; our year-end figures are completed by mid-February. Your school’s EIN number is given in your Parent Handbook and on all receipts.
Please note that our school Directors do not have access to your fiscal information, and all such inquiries and requests should go directly to our Fiscal Office. Thank you!
Foul Weather Procedures
Kinder Works usually follows Spring-Ford Area School District closings, which are announced on major radio and news stations. (The closing number for Spring-Ford is 308.) Delays and closings will be emailed and mass-texted.
For a 1 hour delay, Kinder Works will open at 8:00 AM. For a 2 hour delay, Kinder Works will open at 9:00 AM. Should the school need to close in the middle of the day, Kinder Works will send an email and mass text message to our families. If there is an emergency that requires us to move the children from the school, we will include the alternate pick-up location.
If Kinder Works is going to deviate from the above procedure, you will receive an email, mass text, and/or phone call specifying our actions.
A Note About Outside Play
We go outside to play, even in the Winter! We stay healthy by getting natural sunlight through our eyes and a little on our faces, not to mention the benefits of breathing fresh air. Please be sure that your children come to Kinder Works dressed for the weather, wearing hats, gloves, etc. Also, please clearly label all coats, hats, mittens, and extra clothes with your child’s name. Of course, if it is too cold, we stay indoors for musical and physical fun. Thank you!
Our January Theme:
Lands of Ice & Fire: Iceland, Northern Canada, Alaska, and Antarctica
Amazing geography and climate, with active volcanoes, geysers, lagoons, glaciers, waterfalls, ice caves…
Northern lights, midnight sun and winter white, as well as the Harpa Concert Hall and Reykjavik’s street art will inspire our visual arts…
Cultural folklore and wild animal tales of puffins, fox, polar bear, reindeer, and whale will enter story-telling… while the Runic alphabet and Icelandic language will intrigue our imaginations…
Games Nordic people play will help us exercise while it is cold outside, and music will transport us to their hearts…
This month will be fascinating in each of our curriculum areas!
