FEATURE:  April 22-28 Is The Week of the Young Child

SCHEDULE CHANGES
We need your help!

If you expect to deviate from your usual schedule by more than 15 minutes on any given day, please call or email us as soon as possible to ensure we have staff coverage to care for your children.

You may also complete a “change of schedule” form, which can be printed off of our website:  http://www.childsplayonsuperior.com/pdf/change_schedule.pdf

Recently, we have had several families arriving 1.5 hours – 20 minutes before their normal schedule and this creates significant issues for our staffing coverage!  We schedule our teachers according to how many children are expected to be at the center at specific hours of the day.  When a child arrives that much earlier than their scheduled time, we are not prepared for them!  This is not simply a staffing issue, we are required, by law, to have a specific number of teachers to children.  The only way we can prepare for changes is to know about them ahead of time.

We appreciate your attention to this matter and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

SCHOOL-AGERS  with NINTENDOs, TABLETS, IPODS and other electronics
“Special Game Day” is reserved for our school-aged children to bring thier hand-held gaming systems, tablets, ipods, and more to play and share with thier friends.  We ask that you do not send these with your children except for these specific days.

We do not want personal electronics to distract our friends from the curriculum we have planned and it is very difficult to protect and monitor these items when we do not expect them to be in our classroom.  Thank you for your respect for this rule and for your help in enforcing it with your children.

SNOW PANTS & BOOTS — GO HOME!
Please take all snow pants and boots home with you this month!  Spring is here!  Please consider taking a look at your child’s back-up clothes in thier cubby to ensure they are still the right size and season!

MR. Z’s FUNDRAISER A SUCCESS!

WE HAVE THE BEST STAFF!

Get to know Ms. Lois
Words To Live By:  “Live by choice, not by chance.”
Favorite thing about Child’s Play:  “I like to hear the children’s little voices and listen to what they are saying and thinking.”
Favorite Color/s:  Pink & Turquoise
Favorite Holiday: Christmas (because it’s in winter)

Ms. Lois is one of the ladies in the young 2’s classroom – aka: The Stepping Stones – and has taught this age group for 4  of her 18 years at Child’s Play! In addition to her 25 years of experience, Lois earned certifications at Lakeshore Technical College and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

When Ms. Lois isn’t working with the two year old wonders in her classroom, she may be at home in Sheboygan Falls with her husband David and their Siberian Husky, Nahla and cat, Spike.  You may also find her somewhere in the Upper Peninsula on her 700cc SKS with 48 inch tracks (to be precise).  She loves winter and loves to snowmobile!  You might even find her spotting a moose, which is her favorite animal because it reminds her of the U.P.!

Despite her penchant for winter, Lois also enjoys taking a cruise, hunting, beading and her work as an Independent Consultant for L’BRI Pure n’ Natural – www.loisr.lbri.com.  Check out her personal page!

If it were up to us, We’d most want to find her practicing her expert cheesecake-making skills and listening to Country music, perhaps in her jammies, which just happens to be her favorite dress-up day at Child’s Play.

If Ms. Lois could pour you a cup of coffee and cut you a piece of cheesecake, she’d share some of her wisdom with you and would want you to know how much sign language can help with speech development for your children!  She might also discuss the Twilight Series, which her children got her into or theorize on what Oprah might say if she was sitting at the table, since she thinks Oprah is an amazing person who would have awesome stories about the things she has seen, the places she has gone and the people she has met.

If you can wait until July to enjoy some cheesecake, she’ll have some baby pictures to show you!  She and David will become first time Grandparents this summer!

Get to Know – Ms. Rachel

  Words To Live By: All that we need to make us really happy is something to be    enthusiastic about. – Charles Kinglsey
  Favorite thing about Child’s Play: “All of the funny things the kids say everyday and all the   wonderful families.”
  Favorite Color/s: Purple
  Favorite Holiday: Christmas, because she loves to decorate and all of the lights.
Favorite Animal: Elephant – so cute and interesting to watch.

Ms. Rachel is one of the teachers in the Older 2’s Classroom and has taught these little ones for three of her almost five years at Child’s Play.

Ms. Rachel is most proud of her relationships with friends and family, as well as the Bachelors Degree in Public Relations and Organizational Communications she earned from UW-LaCrosse.

While she lives in Sheboygan, Ms Rachel loves to travel and visit hery family in California, Tennessee and Indiana.  When she isn’t jet-setting around the country, she enjoys shopping with friends followed by dinner and drinks!  She is often found watching football and other sports, though she doesn’t consider herself an expert in anything quite yet.  Ms. Rachel is still learning new things every day!

She would love to learn something new from one of her favorite musicians, Tom Petty.  She loves his music and could listen to it all day.  If she could meet him, she thinks he would probably be a cool, laid-back guy.

Speaking of laid back, Ms. Rachel enjoys relaxing with a good glass of wine and good friends, especially after a day of chasing her “friends” in the older two’s room!  If there was one thing she wishes all of the parents knew it is that she and Ms. Lois appreciate the cooperation in thier classroom and outside activities!
