Wee Care Newsletter
Next week, April 28th-May 4th, is Early Childhood Educator Week. We are very lucky to have so many nurturing, caring and dedicated employees at our center and this is a week to celebrate and thank them for all of their hard work. They go above and beyond every day to provide high quality care to the children and we couldn’t imagine life without them. So please take a moment out of your day to express your gratitude and appreciation to make them feel special. J
We are lucky enough to have many long term staff who have dedicated many years of service to Wee Care.

It may seem a little crazy, but we have already had to pull out the sunscreen a few days this week!
Wee Care will provide sunscreen for your child from now until September. Full time children $20.00, part time children’s cost will be pro-rated. We sunscreen the children both morning and afternoon when needed. If you would like your child to use sunscreen provided by daycare, please let us know and we will add you to our list and a $20.00 sunscreen fee will be added to your child’s daycare invoice. We use a 50 SPF sunscreen and it is an Optimal Plus brand (generic Banana Boat brand) If you choose to bring your own sunscreen in for your child, you are welcome to do so as well. We ask that you please bring it in next week with your child’s name on it, as the UV is getting quite high some days. Thank you.
Please ensure your child has a sun hat for outside. We also ask that you bring in a water bottle for your child to use while at daycare, if you haven’t yet done so.
Hot lunch forms for May and June are due by next Tuesday. If you plan on purchasing hot lunch for your child please hand in your form and payment.
There has been some confusion about parking in the front of the building. There are two parking spots by each entrance with lines painting through them. These spots are reserved for parent parking. Please feel free to park here, or any other open spot in the parking lot. If the employees parked in the morning or end of day, please feel free to pull in behind them and park there as well.
Thank you very much everyone.
Have a great weekend.
