Treetop Updates
November 2020
Hello Treetop Families,

Please review this newsletter at your convenience for important updates from Treetop Children's Centre.
Now that the cold weather is upon us, please ensure that your child/children have appropriate clothes for the weather. This includes boots, snow pants & winter coat, hat and mitts and a change of indoor clothes in the event your child gets wet.

We go outside every day in all weather conditions. Outdoor play is essential for children. Treetop is required by the Child Care and Early Years Act to provide at least two hours of outdoor play each day, weather permitting, for our preschool program, and at least one hour per day for our kindergarten and school age programs. Children are required to come appropriately dressed and equipped for all weather conditions.

At all other temperatures, staff take into consideration wind conditions, the amount of snowfall, iciness and sunshine to determine whether the children will go outside and the length of time they will remain outside.
Our hours have changed!
Treetop Children's Centre is now open 8AM - 5:45PM daily for preschool and
3PM to 5:45PM for kindergarten and school age after care programs

Please note that we are happy to announce part-time care after care options for our kindergarten and school age programs effective November 2020.

Wednesday's we are offering LEGO CLUB and Friday's we are offering SPORTS CLUB!

Please contact Amy for more information.
