June 2017 

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.

We'll also "sprinkle" in (we 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 levels of the main building.

Flag Day: June 14
We'll raise a new flag and sing the Pledge of Allegiance to recognize Flag Day!

Eric Carle Birthday: June 23
In recognition of the author's birthday, we'll read one of his stories as part of circle time.

Drill Day: June 27
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.

Browncroft will be closed on Tuesday, July 4 for the Independance Day holiday. We will re-open on Wednesday.
Finally, please use extra caution in the parking lot, with the nicer weather, children are prone to running to cars at the end of the day.

 Parent Notes

  • Please be sure to sign your child in and out on a daily basis.
  • 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!
