fastened into the car seat. Do not allow your child to run out into or play in the
parking area or the street. Parents/guardians
picking up a child are the ONLY people who are allowed to open the door leading
out to the Parking area. We NEVER allow
children to open doors leading to the outside! Please remember young children
(siblings) MUST not be left in a vehicle unsupervised even for a moment! (STATE

assist us in maintaining a safe environment for ALL children!

Parenting Tips: Enjoy reading daily with
your child. At ABC Magic Moments there is a strong curricular focus on
language development which accommodates varying levels of language proficiency.
Some of the languages spoken by the staff and children include: Spanish,
Chinese, Korean, Italian, German, French, Panjabi, Bengali, Hindi…. All children
are encouraged to read by discovering meaning in pictures, symbols, and print.
Teachers ensure the availability of a range of picture and story books in the
reading area. Verbal storytelling and reading are also components of the daily
schedule. Children are encouraged to talk about their feelings and dictate
their thoughts and stories after an activity. Teachers write down these
messages and display such experiential charts on the walls for the children to
re-visit their experiences and "read" what they had dictated.
Children are also encouraged to write by assigning meaning to their own symbols
through pretend writing and invented spellings. Thus, language development is
reinforced across the spoken, written and visual dimensions.
