Bus: I will send an email about bus numbers and routines just before school starts.
Vacation and Snow days: I am not open on full snow days but if school is dismissed early due to snow I can almost always accept the children. You can instruct the school that they are to come here. Put my #’s on the card that you fill out for school: Cell phone #: 310-5562 and then the schools will notify me of closures.
Feel free to check with me if you hear that closings are likely!
I am not open on vacation days.
Clothing: We cover up with paint shirts when using paint that stains but there is no guarantee that stains will not occur!
Children should bring appropriate outdoor clothing & boots in the winter as we always have a little outdoor time when they arrive.
Snacks: After some outdoor time we all sit together for a snack before starting our project(s).Please send a healthy snack (or two)…they are usually ravenously hungry!!
There will be a nut free table for those that need it. If your child forgets snack I provide one.
