September 2019 Newsletter

A Quality Day care Where Play and Learning Come Together

Summer has almost come to an end. We warmly welcome 2019/2020 school year at Beyond Care Child Centre. We are excited to begin the new year with new children and new families. We hope all of you had a wonderful and relaxing summer.

At Beyond Care, we will return to our regular routine showing new children to hang their bag pack, change shoes take off their jacket and placing them in their own spot in the cubby.  Children will also learn to share, cleaning up toys, express their needs, learn manners, use the toilet, wash hands etc.
We will continue to spend time outdoors as much as possible in order to enjoy the last few warm days of the year; we will have lots of fun and games in the circle time and outside in the playground. Parents, please continue to send right footwear that is appropriate for the outdoors.
ADIOS TO OUR DEPARTING CHILDREN:
We say goodbye to the children leaving Beyond Care Child Centre to undertake a new journey of school life. We wish them well and hope they will have a very successful year! We will miss you Azriel, Kendra and Ethan! We once again welcome Makayla, Cortez, Nardos and Sipora to Beyond Care.

KINDERGARTNERS AND OUT OF SCHOOL CARE CHILDREN WELCOME!

While we say farewell to some children departing from Beyond Care, at the same time we warmly welcome new kindergartners joining our program. Welcome, Camila, Marquez and Mark!  We also welcome back our returning children Ben and Grayson who have been in our program since 2017.  Ben will be in grade 4 this September and Grayson will start Grade 1. We wish them all a very happy settlement and re-settlement at Beyond Care and in the Elementary school.
Following the gradual entry of Kindergartners, we will have the regular pick up and drop-offs to and from Beyond Care. We would like to reinforce some safety tips for the protection of them. Kindly read these rules to them every so often:

  • Each student is supposed to report to the staff on duty from Beyond care and have their attendance marked in the attendance sheet that the staff will carry. 
  • The teacher on duty will station in front of the kindergartner class and students are requested to report to the staff before going to the playground.
  • Students must inform the teacher on duty before leaving the playground to drink water or use washroom or to collect any forgotten item from the classroom.
  • Students must take directions from the teacher on duty from Beyond Care.
  • Students must cooperate to walk safely and with discipline on the walk route to the daycare.
  • Yelling to a friend across the street is strictly discouraged as that distracts safety and disturbs other children.

FALL ART IN THE CLASS:

In September we will talk about ‘back to school’ making new friends, learn about changing season.  We will learn about why Autumn season is also called ‘Fall’ and why leaves change color.  Children will trace, color and collage leaves, learn new fall songs and read books.
We will also study about different kinds of apples in our circle time.  We will cut, taste and learn the names of different parts of apple. Children will also draw, color and label parts of apple.

 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
We wish ‘Amazing Ashton’ a very Happy Birthday!
This September, Ashton will turn 3 years of age.
We congratulate his parents on this special day
.
FIRE AND EARTHQUAKE DRILLS  
In compliance with the Fraser Health Policy, we perform fire drill and earthquake drill once every month. We also request parents to repeat safety rules in case of fire and or earthquake and let children know your safety precautions and procedures.
 
 
HOUSEKEEPING:
Parents, please send an extra change of clothes for your child especially if they are toilet training, we request parents to give a good supply of undies, pants and socks.
If your child is diapering, please keep a constant supply of diapers and wet wipes with us. We prefer to use only the supply that parents send from home to avoid any skin irritation to your child.
Children’s art work and academic work are sent home every Friday. 
Please check your child’s bag packs or lunch bags to appreciate the task completed in the class.
We request parents to please send gym shoes that have Velcro closing.  We strictly discourage lace shoes to avoid tripping in the playground.

PICK UP POLICY:

We request parents to kindly pick up your child/children on time. We will appreciate if you can please pickup them five minutes before closing time to allow teacher on duty to finish her last chores and to enjoy her time with family too.
We would like to reinforce that there is a late pick-up charge. For the first five minutes, it will $5.00 per child and there after $1.50 per child per minute.  If you have more than one child in our care the cost of late pick up remains same to per minute per child and must be paid in cash on the same day to the teacher on duty.

PARENT CORNER – FIRST TIME KINDERGARTNER!

This month’s Parent Corner is dedicated to “first-time Kindergartners”.
Though children are excited and are waiting for the first day to school, yet there is an unease built in them for unknown fear of what they might have to face. In many cases even if children have been in a full-time daycare yet they encounter a bunch of challenges such as the shock of the bigger physical building, gathering of a huge group of children in the assembly every morning, bell-ringing system, announcements, meeting older kids in the hallway, bathroom and on the playground etc. All these put together makes adjustment difficult because young children are used to relying on their parents and primary caregivers.  
To make an easy and smooth transition from daycare to kindergarten it is important to prepare children about ‘change of routine’ which means they must sleep early to wake up early, must eat breakfast quickly to be able to reach ‘big school’ before the bell rings, etc. Also talk about protecting their belongings, listening to the bell, eating lunch at lunch break, making new friends, etc.
Although most schools offer orientation and play day with new classmates, it is a good idea to visit the school closer to the ‘big day’ and arrange to show the child route to the bathroom from his class, re-introduce his class teacher and tour the playground.
Sometimes a transitional object such as a stuffy toy or small blanket that the child finds comfort proves helpful in the new environment. Let children know the safe spot to be at, in case you are running late to pick up.
Finally, we hope your child will settle well in the kindergarten and will fondly remember his first day to school and will laugh out loud when he grows older.

LESSON PLAN FOR THE MONTH
In September we will return to our regular academic schedule which will move according to each child’s pace of learning. New children in the program will learn to trace numbers, alphabets while older ones will continue to practice writing numbers and letters and some will move on to read three-letter words.
Our Toddler group of children will learn to recognize the symbol of numbers, shapes and colors.

OUTERWEAR & NEWSLETTER DELIVERY ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEWSLETTER DELIVERY:


 
As part of our best practice, we will forward a copy of the newsletter to all parents electronically.  Copies of all our newsletters are also available on our website should parents want to revisit any of the past issues.

 

WEATHER CHANGE

Parents are requested with the change of season to now send rain jacket and rain boots.
And we also request to please label your child’s belonging to prevent loss.

Finally, we thank parents for their continuous support to us by speaking positive about Beyond Care and sharing their firsthand experience with family and friends.  It means a lot to us. We believe our growth and reputation so much depend upon the word of mouth from our existing parents. Thank you again!
