Trinity Lutheran Mothers’ Morning Out Program

Our school provides a loving and interesting atmosphere for young children while mothers are away. The program strives to fulfill the community’s need for part-time child care in a safe and happy environment. This is probably your child’s first experience in learning to trust others outside of family members. It is an important part in your child’s growth and development. We strive to make this transition positive.

Schedule: 9:05 to 11:30 A.M each morning beginning in Sept. and ending in June. The school year is divided into 4 sessions. The sessions have eight or nine weeks in each. Children who miss school because of sickness or vacation are not able to make up days.

Ages: Rm A – Under 2 on September 1st
Rm B – 2 by September 1st

Faculty: The staff consists of teachers and mothers.
Lunch Bunchers : 11:30 to 1:30 $10.00
Rates: Four payments are made during the school year. Checks are made out to Trinity Lutheran Nursery School. A $5.00 fee is imposed on all returned checks. Payments are due in September, November, January and April. The fee for each day is $32.00 . If you choose a second day per week, you will pay $31.50 for the second day per week per session. At the end of each session, you will receive a bill for the next.

Hours: The children should arrive at 9:00 and dismissal is at 11:30. Please be prompt at dismissal. Children begin to become anxious when moms arrive late.

Release: Children will not be dismissed to any people other than the people listed on the pick up form. .
If your child is going home with someone other than yourself, please write a note and hand it to the teacher. We are not permitted to dismiss the child without written permission from you. We are meeting you and may not know who the other people are. We need for you to accompany all persons listed to school for an introduction before they are scheduled for a pick up. Until the teacher becomes familiar with the pick up person, she will continue to ask for a photo ID.
If for some reason, a person listed for pick up will no longer be permitted at dismissal, you need to inform the school promptly in writing and in person. If an emergency contact changes, promptly notify the teacher and the director in writing
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN THE CAR.
We can not dismiss the children to older siblings nor do we want older siblings taking the children into school in the morning.
If there is an emergency, and the scheduled person for pick up is not coming, you need to call the school , give the name , address and a description of the person picking up your child. This person needs to have their photo ID to present to the teacher.

Health: Children may not attend school if they are sick. Sickness includes: vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, skin infections, running nose and fevers. No medications can be administered during school hours by the teachers. If emergency treatment is necessary during school hours, we will notify you and call the EMT center.

Safety: Sneakers are preferred because of outside play.

Snacks: Children will be offered a snack between 10:00 & 10:30 each day. Please offer nutritious snacks for the children. Crackers and Pepperidge Farm fish crackers are simple for young children to handle. Parents will provide the daily snack and drinks. Consult your calendar for your day. We prefer water as our drink

Discipline: Separation from the conflict and making another choice seems to settle problems in this age group. We sometimes move the child to a chair or to another room with Miss Marian. If we encounter a problem concerning the discipline of your child, we will discuss it with you. Please do not be offended. We want this program to be a happy experience for all the children. Biting is part of development and unfortunately it does happen. We will notify you if your child bites or is bitten.

1. Complete change of clothes brought to class each day.

Too Sick for School??????
At one time or another, every parent faces this dilemma: Is my child too sick to send to school? Below are some helpful hints to help you know when not to send your sick child to school:
* Temperature of 100 degrees or more within the past 24 hours
* Vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
* Earache
* When strep is suspected but the results of a throat culture are not yet known.
*A positive throat culture for strep: student should be on antibiotic treatment for 24 hours before returning to school.
* Any symptoms of acute illness such as persistent cough or runny nose accompanied by body aches.
* A red eye with crust, mucous or excessive tearing (until diagnosed by a physician and treated with medication for 24 hours (pink eye)
*Any skin lesion with honey brown crusts (until diagnosed by a physician and treated with medication for 24 hours if impetigo
* Skin lesion: mild itchy ring shaped pink patch with a scaly, raised border and a clear center ( until diagnosed by a physician and treated with antifungal cream (ringworm)
*If your child has head lice that has not been treated
* If your child requires any medication for pain stronger than Tylenol or Ibuprofen, they should not attend school.
The guidelines listed above are meant to help parents determine if a child should attend school or other activities. Your child should look and behave like him/her self for 24 hours before returning to school.
-A sick child who returns to school too soon is at risk for picking up other infections due to lowered immunity
– A child who is still sick is likely to infect other students and staff
-A child who is not feeling well will not be able to focus on schoolwork.

Please notify school if your child develops any communicable condition.

Remind your child about frequent hand washing. It is the most effective means of preventing the spread of communicable diseases.
If your child has an IEP , please leave a copy of it with your child’s teacher.
If your child receives services, please have the clinician come to the office and sign in.
We welcome clinicians into our school.This year we will welcome them after October 15. This will give the children a little time to get adjusted to the routine of the classroom.
