2019 Valentine’s Day Celebrations

Valentine’s Day Celebrations
Wednesday & Thursday, February 13th & 14th

       Valentine’s Day provides an “EQ” opportunity to express appreciation for the friends and family that we love. On February 13th and 14th, we will enjoy Valentine’s Day stories and songs of love, dancing with our friends, and special valentine-themed arts and crafts!

       To participate in the Valentine’s Day card exchange, please send in 36 cards for Preschool/Kindergarten, or 24 cards for Toddlers, signed with only your child’s name. (Please do not address cards to specific children so that your child can hand out his/her own cards. Sun Bears will be asked to address their Valentines as a homework assignment.) Please send the cards in a bag labeled with your child’s name, and give the bag to your child’s teacher. Thank you!

 

Fiscal Announcement: 2018 Receipts

Receipts From our Fiscal Department

       Kinder Works is happy to email or mail tuition payment receipts upon request. If you would like a receipt for 2018 year-end taxes, dependent care, or any other purpose, please email us at kinderworks@kinderworks.net. Be sure to include your child’s name and with which Kinder Works you are affiliated.

       Please be advised that requests could take up to 2 weeks to process; our year-end figures are completed by mid-February. Your school’s EIN number is given in your Parent Handbook and on all receipts.

       Please note that our school Directors do not have access to your fiscal information, and all such inquiries and requests should go directly to our Fiscal Office. Thank you!

Winter Weather Procedures

Foul Weather Procedures

dji_udc_snowmanbdr_c      Kinder Works usually follows North Penn School District closings, which are announced on major radio and news stations.  (The closing number for North Penn is 303.)  Delays and closings will be emailed and mass-texted.

       For a 1 hour delay, Kinder Works will open at 8:00 AM.  For a 2 hour delay, Kinder Works will open at 9:00 AM.  Should the school need to close in the middle of the day, Kinder Works will send an email and mass text message to our families.  If there is an emergency that requires us to move the children from the school, we will include the alternate pick-up location.

       If Kinder Works is going to deviate from the above procedure, you will receive an email, mass text, and/or phone call specifying our actions.

 

Mittens A Note About Outside Play

       We go outside to play, even in the Winter!  We stay healthy by getting natural sunlight through our eyes and a little on our faces, not to mention the benefits of breathing fresh air.  Please be sure that your children come to Kinder Works dressed for the weather, wearing hats, gloves, etc.  Also, please clearly label all coats, hats, mittens, and extra clothes with your child’s name.  Of course, if it is too cold, we stay indoors for musical and physical fun.  Thank you!

 

Santa Sighting 2018

Thursday, December 13th

       Skip the lines at the Mall; the REAL Santa Claus is coming to Kinder Works!  Santa will arrive at 4:00PM on Thursday, December 13th to visit all of our good little girls and boys.

       Your family is invited to stop in for a visit during your regular pick-up time, between 4:00-6:00PM.  For AM and Mon-Wed-Friday families, please stop in to visit Santa between 5:00 and 6:00.

       All children are welcome to visit with Santa while his “little elves” photograph this precious childhood memory.  Pictures will be framed and given to you the following week, so no need to wait for printing!  Families can also enjoy a light snack buffet, decorate a cookie, and take home a special gift!

The Giving Tree 2018

The “Giving Tree”
November 26th – December 14th

       The “Giving Tree” is a beautiful holiday tradition that we celebrate at Kinder Works.  Each year we decorate a tree with paper ornaments; each ornament bears the name and age of a local child in need.  Your child can choose one of these ornaments and become a “Secret Santa” for that child.

       Visit our “Giving Tree” in the Atrium to choose an ornament with your child.  Please return your gift in a gift bag, with the ornament as its tag, by placing it under the tree on or before December 14th.

       Watching your child thoughtfully pick out a gift for a child in need will warm your heart!
