Dear Parents,

Hello and welcome, or welcome back, to Bambi Childcare! We are excited about starting this month with all of our new and returning families. We can’t wait to see the children and hear about all the exciting things they have done over the summer. We are also thrilled to be welcoming all of the families and children who are new to the program.

Happy birthday to Jude, Aviv, and Nishka this month.

Covid-19 has affected us all as we adapt to the new normal. We are taking extra precautions to ensure the entire daycare is clean and sanitized regularly, including toys, furniture, etc. Children are adapting to more frequent hand washing, and teachers are creating more individual based activities throughout the day to allow for more social distancing to ensure social distancing. Parents are not allowed inside the daycare, and must complete a questionnaire every morning for their child.

If your child is not well (fever, diarrhea, runny nose, cough, etc) please keep them home and get tested for Covid-19

The time that children spend at daycare is precious, and a very important time of their lives. We are honoured to get to spend some of that special time with them. We feel very strongly about creating a safe and caring environment for the children where they can learn through play and have the opportunity to grow both socially and emotionally. A little separation anxiety is not uncommon or unexpected for children starting, or returning to, daycare. To help your child handle their uncertainty and nervousness, we recommend keeping a positive attitude, giving a little reassurance, a brief goodbye at the morning drop off. Before long your child will likely settle right into his or her new routine.

Please don’t hesitate to call during the day if you want to check on how your child is doing.

Jane Pevzner
