if you would like to
prepare valentine cards for your child to give to
his/her classmates, we have a plan to help us with the
sorting! We will not be distributing class lists with
the children’s names; you will not need one. Instead of
you writing “to Johnny…”and so on, simply have only your
child’s name written on all the valentines. This is a
great opportunity to have your child practice writing
his/her name; you may want to consider starting early in
February and doing only a few a day!
Your child will soon be
bringing home an invitation for a most special event:
Grandparent’s Tea, to be held on April 5/6. We would
like to invite grandparents to join us for refreshments
in the church gym at nursery school.

Health matters FYI
An EpiPen Auto-Injector Training Kit is available
for loan at the nursery school. It is designed to
educate people with severe allergies about
anaphylaxis, and to assist you in being better
prepared in the event of an anaphylactic reaction.
If you are interested in borrowing the kit, please
ask any member of our staff. If you would like to
order your own complimentary kit, visit
Asthma Action Resource Kit
Also available for loan is an Asthma Action Resource
Kit. It is an excellent resource for educators and
parents looking after a child with asthma. It
includes two story books that you can read to your
child. It is developed by the Lung Association. The
Asthma Action Helpline is 1-800-668-7682, where
Certified Asthma Educators are available to provide
education and counselling about prevention,
management and treatment of asthma.
We have children in our programs with life
threatening allergies to NUTS AND EGGS. At no
time is it allowable for these foods to be brought
to school. If your child has consumed or come into
contact with any of the above allergens (i.e. peanut
butter), it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure that
you have cleaned these products off your child’s
face, hands, and clothing. The families of these
children deserve assurance that their children will
be safe at nursery school. Your understanding and
cooperation is appreciated.
