Join us as we Celebrate 40 Years!
It is time to celebrate; Jackman Community Daycare is 40!  Any celebration wouldn't be complete without our amazing community of parents, guardians, and, of course, the staff and children who make Jackman Community Daycare such a special place.  
Mark your calendars and join us for an evening of nostalgia and celebration on Thursday June 13, from 6:00pm-7:30pm. 
There will be face painting, a photo booth, live music, courtesy of Music with Michelle, food and lots of fun for all as we share our memories of what makes Jackman Community Daycare such a special place for our children.
To help us plan for the event, please

It's time for Sunscreen and Hats
With the nicer weather upon us, the daycare rooms will be spending more programming time outdoors.  Before you drop off in the morning, please put on the first coat of sunscreen.  Leave a labeled bottle in their cubby or knapsack for use later in the day.  A reminder that aerosol spray sunscreen is not permitted in the school.   Please only send lotion sunscreen. 
Please ensure your child has a brimmed hat for additional protection from the sun.

Proper Footwear - No Crocs

​As we gear up for an exciting and active summer, we want to ensure that all children are safe and comfortable during their playtime. Please take note of our footwear requirements:

  • Running shoes are required every day. These provide the best support and protection for active play.
  • Sandals are allowed, but they must have straps that secure them to the foot. This ensures they stay on during various activities.
  • Flip-flops and Crocs are not permitted. These types of footwear can be tripping hazards and do not provide adequate protection for your child's feet.

Thank you for helping us keep our daycare a safe and fun environment for all children!
