Camp 226 2018 Summer Camp

This year we are excited to name our Summer Camp Program CAMP 226!  We will be using Proverbs 22:6  Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it

Camp 226 begins June 4, 2018 and is an eleven week program to keep your children moving all summer long.  We offer weekly onsite presentations such as: MadCap Puppet show, Bugman, Turtle Lady and more.  We also take weekly field trips with our K-6 grade campers.  This year we will be going to Magic Mountain, The Wilds, Lazer Kraze, Marmon Valley and other fun activities. 

Registration begins Feb. 5, 2018.

Happy New Year!  
We kicked off 2018 with very chilly weather but are back into the swing of things here at Little Lambs. 

*Please be sure your children are bundled up, especially if they are in our PreK program and walk back and forth between buildings.   

*If your child is in the nap group, please make sure to provide a sheet and blanket for them.  They are often saying they are cold when laying directly on the cot. 

*Please keep up with the hand washing when you drop your child off and again before they leave.  

*Remember that your child must be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to LLCC after a fever or illness.  This will help us keep other children and our staff healthy.

*CAN YOU HELP?  We need Tissues!  We have been at full steam dealing with colds and runny noses for the past couple months.  We are running low on tissues already.  If you are willing to donate a box or two to your child's classroom, we would appreciate it. 

SAVE THE DATE: February 13, 2018  Open House  Art Walk.

Come see the different classrooms and their class artwork. 
Have a safe and warm weekend.

Preschool / PreKindergarten Holiday Handbell Performance will be December 10 @ 9:30am here at Shepherd Church.  We would love it if you would join us for this special service.  Your kiddos have begun practicing and are going to be adorable.  

Parking Lot Safety: Please keep your child with you at all times to ensure their safety.  Do not allow them to run away from you in the building or in the parking lot.  And PLEASE drive slowly through the appropirate lanes of the parking lot, not driving thruogh parking spots.  This will help ensure all our Little Lambs are safe.  

SICKNESS POLICY:  If your child has a Fever of 100.3, runny nose, cough, diarrhea, Unknown rash, Discharge from eyes or an illness being treated with antibiotics for less than 24 hours.  Please keep them home.  We have already seen a lot of major illnesses.  Allowing your child to return to school before they have been 24 hours symption free just continues to spread the illnesses.  We appricate your understanding and cooperation with this policy.

HANDWASHING:   In an effort to help minimize the spreading of germs, we ask that you take your child to the bathroom to wash their hands before dropping them off to class.  And we recommend you take them to wash their hands before leaving the center as well.

8-24-17 Update

Summer has flown by and we are busy making our preparations for our school year to begin September 5th.  Shepherd Christian School started today, as did our before and after care program. We are excited to get our school year started.  We are going through some changes here at LLCC so please read through this email to be sure you are aware of any changes that may be coming with your child's classroom. 

1. Staffing: We are sad to see Susan Whitaker leave us here at LLCC but are very excited for her new opportunity to teach Kindergarten at Shepherd Christian.   
We are also very sad to see Nicole Waite leave us as our Infant 2 lead teacher, she will be replaced by Cathy Wilson.  Cathy will spend next week working side by side with Nicole to make a smooth transition for our babies. 
Mikayla Bernardin will also be leaving us full time but will remain on our staff as a sub.  Nicole and Mikayla have been an amazing asset to our infant 2 program and both will be greatly missed.  We are excited for what God has for them with the new opportunities He has provided for them.

We have hired two new staff as well to assist with our Toddler 2 & 3 Classrooms.  Stay tuned for more information about these great ladies soon.  

2. Lice: We have had several cases reported over the past couple of weeks.  As a staff, we have taken the necessary steps to wash and clean all fabric items in our classrooms and have treated the carpets in the classrooms as well.   Please keep a close eye on your child's hair.  

3. Fall Parent Meeting: Monday August 28 @ 6:30.  We ask that this meeting be an adult only meeting.  We will cruise through our information and allow you time to visit your child's classroom and meet our staff.  

Please feel free to call us at the LLCC office if you have any questions or concerns.

Welcome Summer!

June is here and we are ready to jump into our summer camp program.  The staff have spent the past couple of days prepareing and organzing their classrooms for summer.  We are excited to get started.  

We have hired some additional staff or othe summer months.  You will be able to see photos of our staff posted outside the LLCC office with a brief description about them and their role for the summer.  

We will also have our class lists posted where the parent sign in binder used to be.  This will allow you to double check your child's placement for the summer.   

We are looking forward to the opportunity to serve you and your children this summer.  Please feel free to contact the Little Lambs office with any questions you may have at 614-471-9269.

 

Exciting things are happening at Little Lambs!

It seems as if at the end of each month I think to myself.  "Holy Cow, this month is over!"  Time is flying by here and before we know it we will be in full swing of our Summer Program.   

Our NEW door system has been install and your door codes have been issued.  If you have not stopped by to pick up your codes, please do so soon.  All you have to do is enter your five digit code, followed by the pound sign (#) and the door will open.  Gone are the days of waiting to be buzzed in!  We are super excited about this and know that you will love it too. 

Our classroom renovation project is coming along as this week, we had the electrician in to place the electical outlets where we need them.  We will have that inspected then our wonderful Handy Andy will be busy busy busy, finishing up the remodel for the final inspection.  We anticipate having these room finished in a few weeks and open for more kiddos June 5th.  We are very excited to expand our program. 

Five more weeks until our Summer Camp kicks off.  There are limited spots still available for our K-6th grade summer program. We are looking forward to an action packed summer. 

This week the children learned about Jesus going to Heaven to prepare a place for His chidlren.  This week’s chapel was taught by our Toddler 2 teacher Ms. Cathrine.  It is always a great time to hear the children share what they have learned about the Bible in our weekly chapel service. 

John 14:3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

 

Now that the weather seems to be staying warm we ask that you remember to put sunscreen on your children in the morning.  In order for us to apply sunscreen you must fill out a form in the LLCC office and provide a  bottle of sunscreen for us to keep on sight.  We are NOT able to use Aerosol spray sunscreens. Please bring lotion.  

 

Also, please send your child in tennis shoes.  Wearing sandals causes a mulch issue on the playground.  They spend most of their playground time picking mulch out of their sandals. Wearing closed toed shoes also provides extra safety to their feet while playing.  

 

LLCC is currently looking for part-time employees to serve as substitutes as needed.  Anyone interested should contact the Director, Stacey Barrett for more information. 

 

UPCOMING EVENTS: 

May 1-5   Teacher Appreciation week.  You should have recieved a flyer with a list of your teachers favorite things.  If you would like to, we would love for you to join us in showering our amazing staff with love and appreciation (and maybe chocolate) next week.  They do a fantastic job working with your children.  Next week is the week to let them know how much you appreciate them for all they do.  

May 11     Cane's Chicken Fundraiser

May 23    PreKindergarten Graduation Ceremony @ 6:30

May 26    End of the year LLCC carnival , NOTE CHANGES

We have decided to change the times of this event to 3:30PM to 5:30PM, We would love for each child to have a parent present to participate in the activities with them.  This will be a fun family event to celebrate another great year here at LLCC.  

REMINDER     We are CLOSED June 1 & 2 for Maintenance

Our building is undergoing a lot of changes and we need these days to refresh our facilities before we kick off our Summer Program.  

 

 

 

Our Week Ahead!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It looks like many of you enjoyed the Mega Easter Egg Hunt here at Shepherd Church.  The weather was absolutely beautiful for such a fun family event.  This week is a short week as our campus will be closed Friday April 14 as we celebrate Good Friday.  

We will be sharing the Easter story with the children this week in chapel.  The story will be told using resurrection eggs.  These eggs each have one piece of the story inside of them.  As we open them one by one, we will share the wonderful Good News of our Saviors Resurrection.  It is by far my favorite story to teach.  

Luke 24:6-7 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”
