Jackman Community Daycare
January 2023 Newsletter

Welcome 2023!  We hope all of our daycare families had a wonderful holiday season. We always look forward to hearing all about what the children did over the break. 

In the meantime, here are some updates and daycare reminders for the new year.

Winter Break January 3-6
The daycare will be open and operating from 7:30AM to 6:00PM starting Tuesday January 3 to Friday January 6. Please plan to drop off by 9:00AM and pick up starting after 4:00 PM.  Pick ups and drop offs outside these hours must be arranged with room staff as the main doors are locked between 9:00AM and 4:00PM.
Trip days are back at Jackman. Re-confirm with your room staff the dates of your planned trips.  Children must arrive by 9:00AM on trip days. Ensure your child is dressed for the weather every day.
Children in our grades 1-6 programs bring their own nut free lunch.  Room 101, grade 2, children please see your room page for dietary restrictions.  Morning snacks are available until 9:00AM in all rooms and afternoon snack is also provided.
Nursery school resumes on Monday January 9, 2023

Let’s Keep Snow Outside
Brrr… It’s winter! The lovely snow turns to water inside so we would like to remind you that children must have indoor shoes with them every day to change into. For safety reasons, we don’t allow stocking feet in daycare. Boots are to stay in the hallway. Running shoes are recommended as we often have activities in the gym. 
Please refrain from wheeling strollers into classrooms. Strollers track in too much water and make the halls and vestibules slippery and hazardous.

Stay home & Self Isolate if you are sick
Cold and flu season is still here.  We would like to remind families to keep home any child who is feeling sick or has any new or worsening symptoms of illness.
Please review our Dealing with Illness policy from our Parent Handbook and remember to please screen your child prior to coming to daycare using the Toronto Public Health screening tool. If your child has any of the listed symptoms, they are to “stay home until you have no fever and your symptoms are improving for at least 24 hours (or 48 hours if nausea/vomiting/diarrhea)".
For the health and safety of all children and staff in the daycare, parents are asked to follow our policies, exercise good judgment and keep children at home while ill.
