Purple Day
March 26 is International Purple Day. Please join us in wearing purple on Wednesday, March 21 and Thursday, March 22 to show support for those living with epilepsy. We will be working on purple crafts, wearing purple clothes, face painting, and more! Families are asked to bring in a toonie (optional). All money raised will go to Epilepsy Durham Region.

Health matters FYI

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 .

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

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 childís 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.
