is one adult for every six children. Families with more

- If the weather permits outside play, Mackenzie Park is a great option. Use the bright
orange pinnies to help identify the playroom children.
Also, use the rope handles
when traveling to and from the park. Stagger the children on both sides of the ropes
to keep them safely together. While at the park, the little ones should be your
primary focus. We all enjoy one another’s company, but many of the children can
be good escape artists, so please keep your eyes alert and return with the same number of children.
- A one-time supply fee will be collected at the beginning of the year. Nametags,
crayons, first aid supplies, napkins, cups, pinnies, etc. (see supplies list) will
be provided from this fee. Snacks will be purchased from the fee for the first two
weeks of class. After that, you will be expected to bring a snack if you are assigned
to do so.
