The Woodland sign has been showing families the way since 1987. These past few weeks our beautiful cedar logo received a well deserved facelift!
Thank you to Duncan, Jeremy, Stephen, T,J & Blake for looking after her so well.
Protect your children from the sun. The sun’s rays reflect off of the sand, water and other reflective surfaces. To help prevent UV damage along with using sunscreen, hats and sunglasses will also play an important role.
Protect Against Bugs Using insect repellent to guard against potentially disease carrying mosquitoes (West Nile) and ticks (Lyme Disease) and other viruses.
Prevent dehydration – especially when playing sports, it’s important to take plenty of water breaks.
Don’t Forget the Helmet – wearing a helmet whenever children ride anything with wheels, such as a scooter, bicycle, or roller skates will reduce the risk of injury to their head.
Guard Against Drowning – if your child will be near a swimming pool, it is crucial to have multiple safety measures in place to keep them safe.
Supervise with all your attention – any cell phone activity, no matter how short, takes your attention away. A child can put their face in the water and be disoriented in seconds, not knowing which way is up.
The number of accidental drownings are alarming, with an average of 3,600 children injured in near-drowning incidents per year.
Many of our children are leaving our sanctuary this week to go on to JK, spend the summer at home or are moving away.
Thank you to the parents for your thoughtful gifts, cards and words of acknowledgment.
It means a lot:
For all your patience day to day,
For every tear you wiped away,
For “little hands” you gently hold,
And all the stories you have told,
For your consoling, tender heart,
And all the wisdom you impart,
For silly songs & quiet times,
For peaceful naps & nursery rhymes,
For teaching children how to share,
For being kind & being fair,
For every shoe that you have tied,
And thoughtful; words that instill pride
For all the sweet things that you do,
To help the children all year through,
For being there in place of us…..
We’re grateful and we’ll always be!
