The Kids are excited for summer to start and not to be in school.

We are planning many activities for them to do to keep them busy but to also have some fun.   Some of the things that we are planning are to walk to the library each week, go swimming, go to the splash pad, walk to Schuler to play on the playground as well as doing activities, crafts and play games.

We will walk to Schuler each day to take advantage of the free lunch program that is put on by the school.  We will also be going to the library for some of the activities that they will be having.

Playground Update:  We are waiting for the cement to be poured for our tricycle track.  When that is done we will be able to put down the landscaping paper and the rubber mulch.  We are able to do this project through grants that we have received, donations from the rotary club and Delta Zeta.  We are looking forward to having it finished.

Conversations at breakfast can become very interesting.  One child started out about God and how old he is.  From there we had a conversation about what God does for us and how he is with us all the time.  It also was talked about how God made us.  One little girl talked about God being married.  We talked that God was not married but created man from dust.  It is great to know that we do have an impact on these little lives.

February 2018

We are open from 5:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

The kids have been busy working on making things for Valentine’s Day.  Come down and see all of our art work that is hanging up on the walls.

During the cold weather we have been playing board games, playing games as a group, and reading books.

In February we will be doing a bake sale Feb. 12th – 14th.  We will have Valentine cookies and brownies that the kids will be making.  We are trying to raise funds to help with our playground.

We still have openings for children ages three to twelve.  If anyone is interested or knows of someone who is in need of child care please let us know and we can get them more information.

Kids Come First

712-243-7797

Open from 5:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

             We have forty children enrolled in our daycare program.  We have approximately twelve children that come in the mornings before school.  They are served breakfast and then ride the bus up to school.  We have six children at this time that are here at some point during the day with the possibility of three more starting this next week.  After school we have days where we have up to twenty children that come from school.

After school the children are given a snack, helped with homework, and then given time to play or do activities.  We love to play outside on these beautiful fall days.

We are looking forward to having some things done to our playground.  We are also looking for some new or gently used toys.

Kids Come First

Hours: 5:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Phone Number 712-243-7797

 

Now that school has started it is a little quieter during the day.  We do have children that are here for most of the day.  They are kept busy with doing activities such as playing with playdough, reading to them, doing crafts, playing games, and going outside.  They are also learning their shapes, colors, counting, letters and most of all how to play together.

The Kids Come First kids are picked up at the school and ride the bus down to the church.  When they arrive at Kids Come First, they are given a snack, helped with homework and then kept busy with activities.  With the nice weather we are enjoying being outside as much as possible.

Kid’s Come First July 2017 Newsletter

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.
