KIDS COME FIRST NEWS

Open 5:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Kids Come First is now licensed to accept two year olds.  We have added several new kids to our program.  We have 27 children enrolled in the before and after school program and 18 children from two to five years old.  They do not all come every day but have a different number of children each day.

We have had several days where there is a late start of school.  We find activities that occupy their time and give them a snack before they go to school.

We have set up two different rooms, one is for the smaller children that we call the penguin room and a room for the before and after school kids which we call the crocodile room.  The younger children were the ones who decided on the name for each room.  You are welcome to come on down and check out what we are doing and the fun that we are having.

We do have a need for some new toys in Kids Come First.  If you have or know of someone who would like to donate some thing that would be greatly appreciated.  Some of the things that are needed is: big trucks, farm equipment and farm animals, board games, color books, baby dolls and clothes, Barbie doll clothes, or any other toys for our program.

              We have been busy making some decorations for Halloween.  We have made hand print monsters, paper chains, pumpkins and many other crafts.  Come down and see our art work that is hanging on the walls.

We have our Rada fund Raiser going on.  Rada is a company based out of Iowa that sells cutlery as well as some cook books and also some soup mixes.  They would be great gifts for birthdays, wedding or wedding shower gifts as well as Christmas gifts.  If you have any questions or would like to see a catalog please contact Kids Come First or the church office.

In November we are going to do a food drive to help out the food pantry.  We want to teach the children about helping out others who are in need and that we should be thankful for all that God has given us.

Thank you to Janet and Fred Klute, Marie Parrott and Mike Parrott for putting up the fencing north of the playground. This will give the kids a fenced-in area to play and also makes us compliant with QPPS, (Quality Preschool Program Standards) which states that we need to have a fenced in area for the children to be able to play.

The kids have been having fun playing with play dough and making slime. The staff has been reading books to them and then do an activity that goes along with the book.

We still have openings for children ages three to twelve. If you know of anyone in need of daycare, have them come in and talk with Kids Come First. Parents only have to pay for the times that they are clocked into the system.

If you would like to come and read to our Kids Come First or to the preschoolers you are welcome to do so. Just let us know a day or two ahead that you are coming and what time you would like to come so that we are able to adjust our schedules.

Open from 5:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

             The hallways and classroom are a lot quieter during the day as the older kids have returned back to school.  Things are still busy in the early mornings with making and serving breakfast before the kids get on the bus.  We have been serving breakfast to an average of six kids in the mornings.  After school we are up there to make sure all the kids get on the bus to come back down to Kids Come First.  We take the bus after school so that we only need one staff person to go and get them, with walking the kids we would have to have two staff people.  On average we have fifteen kids that come back to Kids Come First.

After school we are busy having a snack and then it is time to get homework done.  Once that is done then it is time to have some fun.  We do crafts, play games or go outside to play on the grassy areas.  We are anxiously waiting for our playground to get done.  We are waiting for the cement to get poured for the tricycle track.  Once that is done we will be able to put down our rubber mulch and then put all of the equipment back in.

During the day we have four to five children that are here all day.  We play games, do some crafts, learn to play together, read books and just have some fun.  We serve them a morning snack but kids bring their own lunches with them.

We also have openings for Kids Come First.  We take children from three years of age up to twelve.
