Dear Early Learning Program Parents and Guardians,
We are happy to let you know that we will be offering meals again beginning on Tuesday, July 7th. The menus for the summer will be simplified and incorporate more meals that are season friendly, allowing us to ramp up while keeping the meals interesting for children.
Food service will be the first step towards increasing services to our Childcare Program families. Once the food program is under way, our next step will be extending our operating hours.
Currently, we are open for childcare from 8:30AM until 4PM and while we are happy to be open and able to provide care, we also have had to adjust to new standards for care in the COVID-19 environment which include screening at drop off and pick up, limited classroom size, and regular sanitizing.
As parents continue to return their children to child care it is essential that we grow our operation safely. Extending operating hours will be a relief for all parents and we want to acknowledge that we know it is important to you. Like many of you, we are eagerly awaiting word from Henniker Community School as to their fall reopening plans so we can be ready for the school year as well.
As we continue to increase enrollment over the next month, and with the knowledge of what late summer and the fall will bring, we will be reassessing the scheduling of our staff, the health and safety procedures within the center, and our operating hours.
Thank you for your understanding and as always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
All the best,
Director of Children’s Programs
