It's exciting to be back! It's great to see familiar faces and to meet our new families. We hope you had a relaxing summer and are enjoying a great start to your fall semester.
We very much enjoy our work at the center. It is extremely rewarding to work with your children and to get to know the very important people in their lives - you, their parents! The work we do is important and gratifying. It can also be exhausting. Creating partnerships with you makes this all so much easier. We
have obligations in this partnership. Our obligation is to provide excellent care and education for your child(ren), to follow licensing and accreditation standards and regulations, to listen to your questions and concerns, respect you and your family, give you support in your role as parent, and provide you information in a timely manner concerning our program. Your obligation is to hold us to high standards, keep us informed of your child's needs, and to stay informed. Lines of communication are essential in building this partnership. And this newsletter is one of the ways in which to stay connected. The information in it is important. We appreciate it when parents take the time to read it and to absorb its content and information.
Of course the beginning of the year always brings the litany of reminders. But they are extremely important, so please read through them.
Each of the staff members at Campus Child Center adheres to the National Association for the Education of Young Children's Ethical Code of Conduct. This code of conduct reminds us that our children, their families, and our colleagues have the right of confidentiality. We have become increasingly aware of the use of social media and its implications for our children. The right of confidentiality really should extend to social media. With the exception of the ways listed below, our staff members will not post images of your children on social media. We respectfully ask our families to follow this protocol also.
Exceptions for Posting:
Images taken by you and including
only your child
involved in Campus Child Center events may be posted
on social media. Please refrain from posting images including other children on any form of social media.
On Thursday, September 25th at 9:15 a.m., find yourself a great spot along our parade route - which is the area between Wittich Hall and Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center - for a real treat! Our Children's Oktoberfest Parade is coming your way! We hope that you wait for us there - it's not much of a parade if we can't walk past you. You are very welcome to walk back to the center with us and join us for some singing and dancing with George, the Official Oktoberfest Accordion Player!
We will hold a "Get Acquainted and Re-acquainted" Potluck Supper on Monday, October 6
, here at the center from 6-7 p.m. Please bring your family and a dish to pass! We'll supply the milk, plates, bowls, cups, etc. It's a great time to meet and greet other families and our staff.
Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held during the weeks of October 20
and October 27
. More information will be coming your way in early October. If you need uninterrupted time to chat with one of us before conferences, please just ask!
