PRNS Events and Reminders
 
   
bullet Toonie Costume/Craft Day
October 30th and 31st
On October 30 and 31 we will be celebrating Halloween! Again this year, the Costume/Craft Day will be combined with our annual Toonie fundraiser for Sick Kids Hospital. Last year we raised $350.00! Your child is welcome to wear his/her Halloween costume. See our newsletter for more information...
 
bullet Our Annual Christmas Party
Saturday, December 2nd
The party will be held on December 2nd. Mark your calendars on that Saturday and don’t miss our fun and relaxed pot luck affair! Santa will visit and have a small treat for every child, including siblings. Hunter’s Photography will again be in to snap pictures of your child with Santa if you wish. They can print the picture on site for a minimal cost. No line up at the mall…how easy is that! A letter with more details about the Christmas party will be distributed very soon. See our newsletter for more information...

No Wrong Door
Child Care operators that have a purchase of service agreement with the Regional Municipality of Durham are required to ensure staff, students and board members are aware of No Wrong Door. No Wrong Door is a green binder that should be located in all child care offices in Durham. The purpose of No Wrong Door is to make it easier for families living in Durham Region to connect with the services they want for their children ages birth to 13th birthday. No Wrong Door is also available electronically at http://www.rfecydurham.com/resourceportal/no-wrong-door .

EpiPen Auto-Injector Training Kit
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 www.EpiPen.ca.

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.
