TUESDAY FEBRUARY 9TH: Good Morning everyone, I appreciate that many of you have heard this before so I apologize to those who have for repeating myself. I absolutely never make the decision to close early, or open late or NOT open easily. Too be very honest, it weighs upon me heavily. As I have often explained, I have 6 weather apps on my phone and look at the them all repeatedly. I have, over the years, called and talked with Cindy Day, Peter Coade and the HRM snow captain (yes there is a snow captain) to try to have the most details I can with the decision making process. To decide to be open means that families and children and our team members are on the roads. NO wonder it is a hard decision. We care about all of these people - A LOT. As we have grown, so have our team members. Many of them live outside the area of the program: we have many in Sackville, and some in Prospect, Mount Uniacke, Cole Harbour and Eastern Passage. This morning has included them sharing all their road / weather observations (as always). So this long email concludes with me saying that we will open at noon today. We will not be able to prepare lunch as we will all be arriving at the same time, so please ensure that your child has had lunch. The children themselves will be very excited about the snow and will not understand lying down for a nap as they are not used to doing that upon arrival so there will not be a naptime today. Our infant program is totally different, if any babies need a nap they will for sure. So shovel without hurting your backs (use your knees!), drive carefully and see you at noon. .
We are happy to book a tour if we have a space available. If we do not currently have a space, please check out our tour videos : ) Tour times are: Monday - Fridays, between 9:30 - 11:30 & 2:30 - 4:00. Call 450-5437 to book a tour. NOTE: TOURS MUST BE BOOKED so that we can be fully present for you, your child and able to explain our program and answer all your questions : ) Thanks for your understanding.
