WHAT TO BRING

  The following is a basic list that is necessary for all children:

*   Backpack/lunch box (brought home everyday)     

*   1 box Sandwich size Ziploc bags

*   2 Boxes of tissues                                                  

*   Roll of pennies for tzedakah                                 

*   Long sleeve smock for painting    

*   1 box Gallon size Ziploc bags                                                                                                             

*  1 container Clorox wipes

*  1 potted house plant

*   A photo of your child and a family photo                

*   1 complete change of clothing:  shirt, pants, skirt, underwear and socks (in a plastic shoe box.) Please label each piece with a permanent laundry marker.  The school cannot be responsible for unlabeled clothing.

*      1 package of diapers or ‘pull ups’ if necessary along with a box of disposable gloves

*      Wipes, diaper cream (labeled)
*      1 hat/cap

*      Extended napping only:  pillow, sheet and blanket (labeled),
Other than these items, please try and leave extra toys and snacks AT HOME.  Please do not allow your child to bring any personal toys, snacks or any other belongings to school.  It is best if these items are left at home and not taken away before entrance to the school, as this may cause your child to start the day in an unsettled way.

Clothing:

Please dress your child for active play and learning. Daily activities include active and messy play, and they should feel comfortable enough to enjoy themselves without worrying about their clothes or their safety. Sandals, flip flops and clogs are unsafe for outdoor play.  Also be sure your child’s clothes can be easily managed during toileting. A young child’s self-esteem is enhanced when he/she can be independent.

The children are expected to play outside every day, so please dress your child appropriately. If children are too sick to go outside, they are considered too sick to be at school.

Please write your child’s name on all sweaters, jackets, hats,  etc.

Each child needs to have an extra change of clothing at school. Please bring a complete change in a plastic shoe box labeled with your child’s name. If your child comes home wearing these extra clothes, please send a new set to school the next day.

Please do not send your child to school in clothing that cannot get dirty.

WATER PLAY

During Arizona’s warm season we will be having water play. Please send along a bathing suit, sunscreen, water shoes, hat and towel with your child.  

TZEDAKAH (CHARITY)

Part of your child’s learning experience at our school is developing  the desire to share with others who are less fortunate.  Please leave a supply of pennies at the school; we will let you know when you need to send more.

MITZVAH NOTES

Please sent frequent Mitzvah notes about your child’s good behavior at home. Mitzva notes will be read at our Group Meeting time each morning.  This is an easy way to show your child how proud you are of them and their good choices. The Mitzvah notes are a sure way to reinforce their positive learning experience.

LIBRARY BOOK ROTATION

Our classroom libraries are enhanced weekly by an extensive collection of theme related books from our local public library which are available to the children in the reading corner. This program offers the children a wider array of literature and further develops their learning experience.

NAPS

The Preschool recommends naps for 18 month - 3 year olds staying in school all day.

Parents are responsible to send LABELED sleeping material for their child, including sheet and blanket 

TRASH OR TREASURE

Please save your recyclables, many items can be used for our Arts projects.  We can use old newspaper, paper bags, plastic bags, hangers, paper roll tubes and egg cartons.
