2 Grandmas & A Bunch of Kids - For the Best Care Anywhere
Grandmas'News
Early arrivals: Please do not bring food into the center. It is not fair to eat in front of other children. They should finish food before they arrive at the center.             

 

Reminders

Bringing toys from home is not allowed unless otherwise instructed by the teacher.( no guns allowed)  
 
If toys are brought from home the teachers will have the child put it in their cubbies to take home at the end of the day.

Lost and Found          
 
 If there's no way to identify who the articles belong to they will be put in the lost and found box. The Lost and found box will be on top of the cubbies in the dining area.
 
    Extra Clothing

Each child should have extra clothing in case of spills or accidents.

Clothing borrowed from 2 Grandmas must be washed and returned.   

Food & Transportation

Please call the center if your child will  be absent or late for breakfast/ lunch so our cook will not prepare food for your child.

Breakfast 8:00 a.m.
Lunch 11:00 a.m.
                                                  
Please call the center at
(608-764-8272) if your child will not ride the bus to  school or back to the center.
          
Avoiding Accidents
                         
For safety reasons please do not allow your children to run down the hallway to the front door. If they open the door they could run into the parking lot and get hurt. 

Also someone could be coming out of a room just as the child is running down the hallway and cause a collision where the child could get injured.

Please walk out with your child and not let them get to the door first and hold the door open until you get there anyone could walk in that does not belong in the center.
 
Safety First

We have children keying the code into the front door. Please shield the number like you do when you're at an ATM.
 
In the past a parent held the door for the person behind them and they were not a person who should be in the center. 

We get familiar with the faces we pass each day and if someone comes in behind you who appears not to belong in the center or if you have not seen them at least one time just casually stop at the office and let the administrators know. We would rather be safe than sorry!

 If someone is picking up for you please do not give out the code to the door.
have them ring the doorbell so we will know who is in the center
 
Teacher Movement  
          
At 2 Grandmas our goal is to place teachers in a room where their strengths can be put to the best use.
 
Teacher Coverage
Per state regulations teachers cannot be in the classroom no more than
10 1/2 hours per day. Therefore to assure that we have the correct staff to child ratio your child cannot be in the center more than 10 1/2 hours per day unless approved by the Administrator.

You must call the center if you will be picking up later than your enrollment contract agreement.  Without a call to the center you will be charged a $50.00 late pick up fee due with your next tuition payment.

        Nap-time        Bedding
2-5 years old need a (crib) sheet and blanket or a sleeping bag for nap time. All nap stuff should be taken home on Friday to be washed and returned on Monday. 



Remember to check the website weekly for updates
 
 
State Mandated Staff Meetings
Center will close at
4:00 p.m.
 
The 3rd Wednesday of each month 2 Grandmas will have a staff meeting at 4:00.  While some centers close for an entire day or more for in-service and continuing education, we are only closing for an hour and a half  a month to meet the mandatory equirements for staff meetings
 
It is our belief and State Licensing that teachers and assistant teachers maintain a commitment to self education to improve and better their skills for the benefit of your children and our community.
 
Please understand that we are aware of the inconvenience this may cause some families, we strongly believe that the benefits of proper education and training for our staff exceed the inconvenience some may experience.

 We are taking into consideration our teachers and the hardship it causes for them and their families.
 
All children must be picked up by 4:00 and late fee of $50.00 will apply to any children picked up after 4:00. Please check the website for cancellations.
