June 2018

June is a time of transition for many of our Browncroft children. Our pre-schoolers and pre-k friends are completing their school year of learning, our youngest friends in the Infant House are exploring outside, and we are all excited for the prospect of water fun—sprinklers—in the warmer days ahead. Recently, notes went home with a list of "must haves" for summer fun—swim suits, hats, towel, etc.

We'll also "sprinkle" in (couldn't help the pun!) some fun special events this month including Flag Day, Father's Day creations, and All the Browncroft Reads Eric Carle. Eric Carle is a great children's author that uses bright and colorful simple drawings to draw children into a world of learning. Details about the upcoming events are posted on the parent info boards at the entrances on both the upper and lower level of the main building.

Drill Day: June 26
As part of our compliance with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, we will conduct a Shelter in Place Drill across the Center. These drills are important to make sure the children and caregivers are well prepared to handle emergencies such as extreme snow storms, air borne contaminants, etc that would require us to stay inside the buildings as the safest place to shelter.

Thank you to all the families that have "Liked" our Facebook page: Browncroft Day Care Center.
We love to see families visit the page and see in nearly "real time" what kind of fun we're having at the Browncroft. We use this page to share some photos, news and events. This page complements what you find in classrooms, parent info boards, and our website.

General Reminders
CENTER CLOSED: Wednesday, July 4 for the Independence Day holiday.

Please be sure to have an extra set of clothes at the Center for your child—play is messy sometimes! Be sure to include an extra jacket and sweatshirt. Weather is changeable and we want everyone to be prepared.

Use extra caution in the parking lot, with the nicer weather, children are prone to running to cars at the end of the day.

We remind all our families, to please use extreme caution. No cars should be exiting the Center onto Atlantic Avenue. Atlantic Avenue entrance is one way into the Center. All cars should be exiting onto DeMaille Street. We also ask that you don't leave cars running in the parking lot. It is for the safety of all the children.

 Parent Notes

  • Our supply of extra clothes is running very low. If you have borrowed clothes from the Browncroft closet, please return them promptly. It's always a good idea to bring extra clothes as play can be messy sometimes.
  • As always, please inform the office of changes in phone numbers, work and home addresses. Help us to stay current with your contact information!
