Birthdays of Children

In order to support the child-centered focus of our curriculum, we celebrate children’s birthdays with a community snack of 100% fruit juice popsicles once a month. Teachers in the room will contact families whose children’s birthdays fall within the same month prior to the beginning of the month to arrange a mutually agreeable date. We welcome families to come into the classroom on, or close to, the child’s actual birthday to share a favorite and meaningful book or activity with the child’s class. Parents should see the child’s teachers in advance to arrange the time of the activity and to discuss what their plans are. In lieu of Goodie Bags or sugary treats we suggest that families donate a special children’s book or CD that is a favorite of the child’s to the classroom.
