Washing Hands/Preventing Illness

September was off to a tough start for cold/flu season. We have had many children and staff home sick with some bug.  At 4CCN we wash hands several times a day to prevent the spread of germs and illness. When your child comes home from school, please get into the habit of washing their hands to help prevent the spread of germs in your home.


Halloween Celebrations:

Halloween is a fun time, but for young children who do not always understand the concept, it can be frightening. At 4CCN we will celebrate Halloween with simple activities that do NOT include costumes.  We will celebrate Halloween on Tuesday, October 30th or Wednesday, October 31st.  Please check your classroom bulletin board for more information about your child’s activities.

Keeping ALL Children Safe

For the safety of all children, please do not drop off children at the front door. Please find a parking space and walk your child/children to their classroom.


NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN YOUR CAR WHILE DROPPING OFF SIBLINGS.   If it is necessary for you to leave your child/baby in the car for drop off or pick-up, please ask someone to stand by your car while you bring your child into school or have some one walk your child into school for you.  Remember, it is unlawful to leave children unattended in your car.


Maryland's child safety seat law requires that all children under age eight be secured in a federally approved child safety seat according to the safety seat and vehicle manufacturers' instructions, unless the child is 4 feet, 9 inches or taller. The child restraint must be right for the child's size, age, and weight.


4CCN has an extra booster seat available for use in case of emergency. Please ask someone in the office to borrow the booster should you be without a car seat for a trip home. We want to make sure all of our children are safe at all times.




Playground Use After School

If we ever get a break from all the rain, we welcome you to use the playground after school hours (2-year-old families please wait for the 4-year-old classes to go back inside).  Safety of all children is very important even after school.  Please supervise your children at all times.  Please follow these safety rules we have in place during the school day:

·         Parents only unlock gate

·         Keep gate closed at all times

·         Parents need to supervise children at all times

·         No jumping off equipment

·         No climbing on fence

·         Cover sandbox after use

·         No throwing mulch/sticks/rocks/sand KEEP SAND IN SANDBOX!

·         Stay away from classroom windows

·         Parents/care takers are liable for the safety of their children after school hours

Last family to leave, please lock the gate with padlock. Thank you!
