Thank you to those who helped us with finishing up our kitchenette and washer/dryer upgrades. With all the children this summer, it has really helped out! With having the kitchenette, it has helped us to be more efficient in making breakfast and snacks for the kids. And now with the washer and dryer installed, we are able to do our laundry here at Kids Come First so a staff member doesn’t have to take it home each week.
Some of the activities that Kids Come First do during the week: On Mondays the school age kids walk to the library in the morning to check out books. We use these when we have reading time after lunch.
We have been going outside each morning before it gets too hot during the afternoon hours. We not only enjoy playing on the playground but playing group games such as Frogger, Shark, tag, detective, and Red Rover.
Each week we have a different theme in which we do activities and crafts. Some of our themes have been Mad Scientist, Ocean and Bugs.
Our hours for Kids Come First is 5:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. We serve breakfast at 6:45 until 7:30 a.m. We walk to Schuler for lunch at approximately 11:00 each day. Preschoolers have rest time each day while the school age kids have reading time. During the rest of the day we are busy with many activities whether it be doing a craft, learning activity, free play, outside play, or playing games.
