Welcome to the 3’s Class

Dear Parents,
 Welcome to the 3’s class my name is Ms. Courtney Madenford.  I will be your child’s teacher this school year.   I have worked at Kinder-Haus for 7 years and enjoy working with children.  I am  looking forward to getting to know you and your child and to help them grow and succeed.   Through the school year we will be dealing with activities that help physical, intellectual, emotional and social developments.
We also will be learning about God every day, as well as a bible lesson every week.   Your child will need a pair of extra clothes (weather appropriate), messes and spills may happen.  Please bring in nap items such as a blanket, sheet and a pillow (optional) or a stuffed animal (also optional).
Just a couple of reminders:
*  Please keep toys at home; we are not responsible if they get broken or lost
*  Please bring ID in for the first two weeks of the fall session.  Some of our staff may not know you.  This is for your child’s/children safety.
The first day of the fall session will be on August 27, 2018.   If you need to contact me please call the Kinder-Haus office at 717-355-7801 for any questions or concerns.
Ms. Courtney Madenford
