Our daily schedule differs based on the age level of the child. Kids ages 6 weeks to approximately 1 year old follow an individualized schedule that is consistent between home and daycare. Once a child starts eating solids, they usually move to a classroom with a set scheduled to accommodate naps, breakfast, lunch, bottles, and snack. Daily schedules include welcome activities, morning meetings, building muscles in the large motor room, working on fine motor skills, art, music, religious education, storytime, outside play, naps, ABCs, colors, numbers, shapes, and calendar time.
Communication with each parent is a very important part of what happens each day. In order to maintain a high quality of communication, we touch base with each parent face-to-face as well as through postings on our bulletin boards, via text messages, sending out monthly newsletters, posting on our Facebook and Twitter pages, by way of emails, and updating our (this) website. Individual emails are sent in order to communicate personal information regarding a child or account information. Parents are always able and encouraged to text or call throughout the day to ask questions and for updates – even if it’s “*just* “I miss my kiddo – send me a picture!”
Capitoland Children’s Center has an open door policy for visits from parents. Due to the pandemic, we do have some restrictions in place as far as where parents can visit (for instance, no cafeteria visits). However, you can always come and play, sing, join in morning meeting, etc!
It is important we maintain a healthy environment. If you receive a call or text from Capitoland regarding your child’s illness or symptoms, it is out of concern for your child’s well-being as well as the well-being of all children, parents, and staff at Capitoland. Capitoland will follow state and CDC recommendations when a child should be excluded from the center.
