Birthdays & Holidays
Please feel free to bring a special treat to share with all of the children in daycare on your child’s birthday, but this is certainly not necessary! Your child will no doubt enjoy this special day regardless of a celebration (or lack thereof) at Aunty’s, so please do not feel obligated to plan anything elaborate.
Please speak with us before bringing a treat to daycare for your child’s birthday or other special events. We are a nutrition-based program, therefore require healthy alternatives to sugary snacks. We do not allow cupcakes or cake, but here are a few healthy treat ideas:
Other Festivities & Holidays
In regards to other festivities, including religious holidays, we will always give you plenty of notice prior to the celebration of any cultural or religious occasions. We personally do not practice or teach any particular religion at Aunty’s but do respect the many different beliefs of the families we serve. The families we care for come from many different cultural and religious backgrounds and beliefs; we would prefer to refer your child’s questions on these subjects to your authority. Please feel free to discuss with us any preferences you have in handling these topics where your children are concerned. Our goal is to teach respect for all and encourage children to be curious about their world and the people in it!
