*Sign up for our summer camp programs! Trips to the movies, dance classes, and bowling. In house animal vistis and STEM workshops. Weekly trips to the park! Lots of fun!
We cannot state it enough.....PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE label all of your child's belongings. Hats, gloves, clothes, boots, bedding, bottles, lunchboxes, pacifiers, etc. Basically anything that is coming into the school/classroom NEEDS to be label. If it gets misplaced, with it labeled, it will be much eaisier to return it. We can not be responisible for missing or lost articles of clothes or other items that were not labeled. The teachers will start to label items without names.
*Winter is here! The children are outside in the mornings and the afternoons as long as the weather is 32 or higher, factoring in the wind chill. They will need snowpants, boots, hats, mittens and jackets. We ask the you bring in an extra pair of shoes or slippers to wear inside the classroom to keep wet boots of their feet and tracking in too much water. We also request that your child have at least 2 pairs of mitten and 2 hats. as these items get wet and are not dry by afternoon to go back outside and extra socks and pants that may have gotten wet during outside play time.
Older kiddos are responsible for their own items! The teachers will show and remind them where items are to be stored and hung up. Please do not ask the classroom teacher where a missing boot or glove is, they will not know. Refer to the above about labeling items. If your child comes to school without these items, you will be called to bring these items in as we do not have many extras to use as spare. Thank you.
Per Senate Bill 247, passed last year by the govenor, all licesnsed childcares are require to test drink water for lead. The acceptable level is anything @15 ppb or under. Kid's Creative Cove tested our 4 drinking water sinks and all were at 1 or under ppb. If you want, please stop by to see Ms. Kim for a copy of the results. We will continue to test each yr to ensure that our drinking water is always safe to comsume.
We are now able to announce our school delay and/or cancellations on WMUR! If we were to have a school closing or delay, due to weather, please tune into to WMUR, channel 9 to check the status of school cancellations or delays. You can also visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/KidsCreativeCove or follow us on Twitter for updates. In the event that the center had to close due to other reasons, not weather related, your child's teacher would contact you as early as possible to relay the message.
Happy New Year to All! 2020 is here. We are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead of us with lots of fun things to do and learn!

Please remember that s of Jan 1st, our late tuition fee has changed and is now $35.00 each week that it is late.
We know that Brightwheels is a very conveinet way to keep informed of your child's day. It is just as convient for our teachers a well but, as mentioned when parent toured our center, with the exception on the infant room, Brightwheels is updated when our classroom teachers have time. The teachers 1st priority is ALWAYS THE CHILDREN! Their attention must always be on them! So updates are made when children are sleeping or after everyone ha gone home for the day. This includes checking them in and out. Please do not think the time on Brightwheels is the correct on. Brightwheels is the last thing teachers will up date. They worry about paper forms for the state first and making sure that children are attended to. This also goes for messages. Please know that if you want to send a general message through Brightwheels for your child's teacher or to ask a question for admin, you can do so but if you have a concern or issue with staff or tuition questions, we ask that you call the center at 603-429-2003, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or come talk to a director in person and not send such things through Brightwheels as those messages are seen by all staff and such concerns are not needed to be hashed out in front of an audience. If any parent cannot conduct a professional demeanor through the BrightWheels app, then those privillages would be restricted and a paper form will be givien to you detailing your child's day. Thank you for your understanding.
*Unfortunately, because of ratios, we do not have staff to kept children inside, nor is it fair to keep a whole class inside for one child. We also have to follow state regulations that state children need to have 60 mins of outside, gross motor time each day, weather permitting. Plus fresh air keeps the germs away! Your child/ren MUST have snow gear here as they do go outside each day the weather is above 32. We have very few extra snow gear clothing, you child will be dressed in all their spare clothing to accommodate outside play.
Finally, each time you take your children to a well baby/child check up, you must provide the center with an up to date immunization record and a school clearnace form from the doctor. The state does look through files to ensure these forms are in a child's file so that we can continue to provide care for you child.
