Greetings from NEW LEAF CHILDCARE….
Good Day New Leaf Family and Friends!
I thought I would take a moment to fill you in on how God has been working in the lives of the daycare staff and the families we serve. As most of you know the daycare was shut down in March by the order of the governor. We were able to reopen on July 6th. All the staff worked hard preparing for the opening and adjusting to the changes that have been mandated to us. The Center Board of Directors also helped develop our plan for reopening and have been very supportive throughout this wild journey we have been put on.
Life at the center has been planned to keep the children and families we serve as safe and healthy as possible. You will notice that on all the doors leading into the center there are signs stating that you must have a mask on to enter the area. This is to ensure the safety of the chil-dren we are being blessed to care for during the day. If you also happen to stop by during a pick up or drop off time you will notice that the parents are not coming into the center. This is a new rule from the state designed to also keep the children as safe and healthy as possible. All this along with God’s protection and the many hours of continuous cleaning, we are re-quired to do is doing just that.
Our one challenge has been how to implement the parent involvement that Step Up To Quality requires. The challenge of how to have parent involvement was solved by, believe it or not, the use of Facebook. Each room has developed their own private Facebook group where the teaching staff uploads pictures several times a day showing the parents all the things their child or children are doing throughout the day while they are working. The parents are just loving it! Many of them have said it has helped them feel more connected to their children and seeing them do many of the things throughout the day has also strengthened the connec-tion to the center as a whole.
I would like to take this moment to thank all of you that remembered us on the day of prayer. We can really feel your prayers. Most of our days are busy cleaning and tending to the needs of the children, so it is nice to know that there are people out there praying for the staff, the center as a whole and the families we serve. It is greatly ap-preciated by all of us. With that being said, please continue to hold us up in prayer that God will grant us His strength and protection to continue to care for His most precious jewels.
