Additional Information

Nap Time - Classes

Our schedule keeps children busy, and at this age children need to sleep or at least rest in preparation for the afternoon.  If you need to pick-up a child early, please notify the office before 11:30 so that your child does not go into the nap room.  

A blanket should be brought with the child on his/her first day, clearly labeled with
his/her name.  These are kept at school and washed on the premises weekly or as
needed. Children in Level D have a quiet/rest time after their lunch recess.

Vacations

Please let us know if your child will be leaving Mother Goose School on an
extended vacation so the teachers can plan accordingly.

Birthdays 

  • Keep it simple with your child's interest in mind. 
  • Less is more for young children, too much activity can be frustrating.
  • Everyone needs reminders to RSVP.
  • Parent participation: Get parents to help, your party will run more smoothly.
  • Goodie bags: Useful and educational trumps junk!
