AECD will serve a hot healthy meal that includes breakfast, morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack. Meals are served family style and children will be able to help with the table setting and clean-up. We practice proper table manners. Teachers encourage the children to taste every food item. Since we are on the USDA program NO FOOD IS ALLOWED IN OR OUT.
Toddlers sleep on mats, with clean sheets and blankets, used only by them. Parents are responsible for supplying diapers, a full change of clothing, including socks and underwear, appropriate for the weather, and any other supplies your child may need. You may bring a whole package of diapers to be stored in the changing table. We will let you know when your supplies run low. All blankets and sheets will be sent home to be washed every Friday and must be returned on Monday for continued use. All items need to be labeled with your child's name or initials.
Toilet training will be done in a relaxed manner with cooperation of the family. If potty training begins when your child is ready, the task is quick and easy ONLY if the PARENT reinforces it at home. Please let us know when your child is ready to start potty training.
