This schedule is meant to give you an idea of your child's day. Actual times and activities may vary depending on time of the year, weather, age and temperament of the children. Age appropriate activities are scheduled with the flexibility allowed to respond to the needs of each individual child and their various ages.
How many vacations do you take each year?
We allot ourselves 2 weeks of vacation a year. Usually one week at a time. The dates of our vacation are posted at least one month in advance.
Yes, we allot ourselves 3 sick/personal days per year. We also use these days for our continuing education classes (CPR, Pediatric First Aid, etc) in order to keep our childcare license in good standing. Of course we will give you as much of an advance notice as possible.
Do parents still have to pay during vacations, holidays, and person/sick days?
Yes, regular payment rates apply for our vacations, your vacations, weeks with holidays, and provider's sick/personal days.

We provide a fun, healthy, and happy environment, healthy food, beverage, and snacks, preschool curriculum, crafts, toys and fun activities.
Does Legacy Daycare provide a preschool program?
Yes, for children ages two through five, we offer a structured preschool curriculum. We supplement curriculum with tons of enriching activities ranging from art and craft projects to games, songs, finger plays, storytelling, creative dramatics, exercises, science, shapes, numbers, colors, alphabet, and much more through various monthly themes. Some of these projects will be taken home to share with you, and others will be group activities that you can ask about. Here toddlers and preschoolers start their day with Morning Circle Time, where the children join together to discuss a daily topic, the weather and the day's exciting activities. During this time, children learn to listen, share, take turns, cooperate, express themselves, and give and receive feedback; giving them a chance to demonstrate what they are learning. We introduce one concept at a time in a logical natural sequence, so your child feels proud, not frustrated. We know that children learn best when they are actively involved. Therefore, we offer hands-on activities which are unique and knowledge building, providing a balance of important preschool skill experiences, all in an effort to help develop happy and confident children; children who smile while they sing, talk, dance, rhyme, count, play, create, and write.
What types of meals and snacks does Legacy Daycare provide?
Each day we provide three nutritious and well balanced meals. We provide morning breakfast at 9:00am, lunch at 12:30pm and afternoon snack at 4:00pm. Milk is served with all the meals and snacks, and water is offered throughout the day. Parents will need to bring milk and food for their children until they are fully on solids. Here is a menu, showing an example of the different types of food we serve throughout any given week. The meals and snacks for each week constantly vary in order to ensure the children receive a well-balanced diet. The children are offered the food, but they will not be forced to eat. It is our goal to offer nutritious meals and snacks to the children in our care, as nutrition is a vital part of a child's health. Children need to eat well-balanced meals in order to meet his or her daily energy needs and to help them build a strong body and mind. We know that the good food habits a child develops will help them prevent cavities, iron deficiency anemia, and obesity, etc - all common nutritional problems in young children.
