What is The Children's Spot Plan to Protect our Children & Staff?
Spanish Class News
Wow! The children are really enjoying Ms. Vianey and her story time with her puppets.The children now have their favorite stories and want to hear "The Three Little Pigs" and "Little Red Riding Hood" over and over again. She reads her stories in Spanish and English and the pages come to life! It is amazing how fast they are learning the Spanish language and really enjoying it as well.
The Children's Spot only uses Hospital grade cleansers and sanitizers for our kitchen and toys. Our rooms have been super cleaned and all toys are sanitized. We have bacteria fighting foggers we can use sparingly. We are working HARD to make sure your child is safe in our care. Our teachers know to wash their hands often and we are making sure our children are doing the same. The staff are wearing masks and making sure the children are eating healthy and playing outside. We use gloves during snacks and lunch times to be extra careful of germs.
If you are keeping your children home during this time, make sure they have a routine and talk to them about COVID-19. Make sure they go outside for exercise and fresh air.
This is a vulnerable time and we really want to help support you. Thank you for making sure our children enjoy the goodness of nature. I leave you with a wonderful quote:
"I go to nature to be soothed, healed and have my senses put in order." - John Burroughs

Choosing Healthy Snacks for Kids
While meals make up the majority of a child's nutritional intake, most children eat at least one snack per day. While many of the most commonly offered kids' snacks tend to be of lower nutritional value than meals, snacks still can support—or even enhance—your child's overall healthy eating plan. Here's how:
Use snack times as a way to increase fruits and vegetable intake. Most kids do not eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables. Snack times offer a great opportunity to increase access and exposure to these nutrient-dense foods. Consider pairing them up with dairy products or dairy substitutes (such as grapes and cheese) lean proteins (such as celery and peanut butter), or whole-grain cereals and bread (such as banana sandwich on whole grain bread).
Keep a range of healthy foods handy at home. It is much easier to make easy, healthy snacks when you keep a few key items stocked at home. Ideas include different types of raw vegetables and fruit, yogurt dip, hummus, and cheese sticks.
Avoid processed foods and added sugars. Processed foods (made in a factory and sold in bags and boxes) do not have many nutrients and often have a lot of added sugar and salt. In addition, children may become hungry faster after eating processed foods. See Snacks & Sugary Foods in School: AAP Policy Explained for more information.
Teach your children to eat a rainbow of colors. Arrange your children's foods to show the beauty of fresh, brightly colored foods. Talk about the farms where food comes from and the farmers who help grow it.

"Come and visit us!"
April 1, 2020 begins the 9th year for The Children's Spot. I will never forget the 1st day we opened the center. I had my Licensing Representative, 3 firemen from the Mansfield Fire Dept., 2 men for inspection from The City of Mansfield, all new teachers I did not know, 67 children, and myself in one room due to a TORNADO! We were in that room for over 4 hours. If you can get through that day, I thought I could do anything. In fact, we have. We have cleaned, purchased new curriculum, supplied all rooms with educational toys, trained teachers to receive their CDA's or Associates Degrees, and made sure our menus were healthier. We also have planted flower and vegetable gardens, put in new playgrounds, and made our children feel loved while they were educated. We have opened up another Infant and Toddler Room and continue to make sure the children have fun with Science and Math. I am proud of my staff - they are the best! My staff are educated, kind, fun, and most of all they make The Children's Spot what it is today. "A place where learning never ends!"
