It's been WAY too long!

Wow where has the time gone!!! it has been a long time since I sat down to write you all. We have had so much fun at the daycare over these winter months. We know that Mother Nature has not been on our side with warmer temps so we all can go out and play, but the school agers have sure enjoyed the many, many late starts! And recently a couple of snow days!! Just like us I do believe the children need a break and a " chil-lax" Day! ( a few of the kids came up with that!! He! He! a Chill day and Relax Day all combined into one word) There is nothing like bringing the outdoors in! For some winter fun.It has been a fun filled time at Kidz Junction, not only have the children been learning new things, so have the teachers. We have started a new training call ECIPS ( Early Childhood Indicators of Progress) It is a new way of observing the children as well as making our job alot more efficient! Even if it is hard to "teach a old dog new tricks!" We are all very excited for this new learning process. Alot of our classes will be instructed through or along side the MN Board of Education. In the future it will give parents a easier way of looking for Child Care with a star rating program. The number of stars each Child Care Center receives is based on the knowledge of staff, the classes that they attend, information that can be handed out to parents. I will be writing more about this as the time quickly approaches.It is hard to believe that today is the first day of Spring...the wind is blowing snow around the temps are freezing. A year ago it was 80 some degrees out side. Well anyways, with that said it is hard to start thinking about Summer, but we sure can dream about it!!I will let you all go for now and dream about the warm summer breeze blowing through your hair!Ms Kris O
