Welcome back to playschool! We hope you all had a great Christmas holiday and we wish you all the best in 2019!
For the month of January, the themes will be winter, hygiene, and the ocean. We will be designating one day for a beach party which coincides with our ocean theme. As always, the children will be doing crafts, reading stories and discussing each theme.
Drop Off / Pick Up
The Carstairs Playschool Society would like to send a friendly reminder to please drop off and pick up your child at the scheduled times. If you are going to be late at pick up, please call or text, 403 816 1481, to advise us. Sometimes the children can get very upset when their parent doesn’t come through the door at pick up time. If we are notified, we can let your child know and hopefully avoid some sad tears.

We thought it would be a fun idea to have a beach party in January. At least we can pretend it’s warm for one day! Each class will be having their own beach party. The children can dress in beach themed clothes such as shorts, sun dresses, tank tops, capris, flip flops, etc. However, NO SWIMSUITS PLEASE!
Please sent a towel with your child so that we can have a picnic on the “beach.” The children will require a regular snack and a small treat will be provided afterwards. Our time will be spend following the regular routine as much as possible, however some changes will be made to incorporate the beach theme.
Open Door Policy
We wanted to remind families that the Carstairs Playschool Society has an open-door policy. If at any time, you have questions or concerns regarding your child or the program, please let us know. You can chat with us after class or email email@example.com. If you would like to keep your concerns or questions confidential, please email them to Gail Schwartz, our administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403 999 8275.
Snacks must be peanut free. Please bring your child’s snack in a lunch kit and please label all containers as we have a few juice cups that are the same.
The Lost and Found bucket has some items that need to be claimed. It is located on the table in the entrance way. Please take a look and see if these items belong to your child.
Please refer to the Carstairs Playschool Society handbook for information on updated policies of the Carstairs Playschool.
We are looking forward to great success in 2019!
