What's New:


Welcome Back to a New School Year 2017


     We have had a Wonderful Summer Program this year at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center! It is hard to believe that Summer is now drawing to an end. If you take a peak around the building (inside and outdoors) you will see some proof of our summer adventures in learning! Our tomatoes, onions, green pepper and jalapenos are growing strong & tall, we can't wait to taste the fruits of our gardening labors. We 'create' our own compost from our lunch scraps and each child has a part in the planting, watering, tending and harvesting of our school's crops. It is one of our greatest rewards, to work so hard and watch our work pay off in a tasty way!

We also continued our Soccer Shots program this summer for the 3's, 4's, 5's & 6 year olds, with many of our toddlers eager to join up next summer as well!
Soccer Shots is a weekly Soccer Session, hosted by Soccer Specialists who share their enthusiasm and Soccer expertise with our students who opt in to this program. The children are encouraged to explore this sport, learn the fundamentals and apply them. Good sportsmanship, keeping active and playing to learn are all part of the program.

Our outdoor water play kept us busy on the hot days of June, July & August! Every age group gets to participate in our (almost daily) outdoor water adventures. It is a welcome sign of summer to see the many bathing suits and towels drying in the sun after a long day of water play.

Reading Adventures continue as the children of Kids Unlimited have traveled far and wide this summer via our multi media- library materials. Just to name a few of our journeys... we traveled through the rainforest, across the beach, under the sea, to the circus, across the 7 continents, through the universe & our epic finishing destination was "the Great American Eclipse Day!" Our classrooms and hallways are brimming with artwork and decorations made by each class as they journeyed through books, to learn more and more about the world around them.




We are happy to welcome our newest students from the infant room and up and wish our Pre K graduates all of the BEST as they enter Kindergarten this year. We have so much in store for our newest school year. We can't wait to make it fabulous!

Welcome Back to a New School Year 2017

New Year, New You!

It is always nice to have a Fresh Start!
January is that time of year for most of us, so let's embrace it wholeheartedly!
We welcome all of our children back from their holiday celebrations and are moving into our winter themes as we enter the long winter months before SPRING!
A few new programs have been recently started (or restarted) at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center! Starting this Fall, we have been incorporating even more Library resources to each of our classrooms. We have joined up with North Wales Area Library & Rejoined Wissahickon Library to have access to books galore for our kids. Each week we are collecting ideas and themes from our teachers and matching them up with age appropriate stories for each class.... READ, READ, READ has always been a corner stone at Kids Unlimited Childcare, but now, we are fortunate enough to have a wealth of 2 local libraries to contribute these reading goals!
      Additionally, this year we have initiated an attendance email policy that many families have so graciously embraced. We request that an email be sent to our office any time that your child will not be attending our school that day, before 8am. This is the same requirement that you will find once your children enter North Penn School District. We are hoping that this open communication line will keep both the teachers and the office current with our children's daily attendance. Many of our dailly activities begin once all the children have arrived to school. We hope that all families will take a moment to let us know of any changes in their child's schedule, whether it is due to illness, family events or just simply a mental health day to stay home with Mom & Dad! When we have this information available to the office and teachers, we can share it with them, and move into our scheduled activities without any child missing out. We thank all of you who have already been awesome about dropping us a line about your child's changes in attendance!
        We have continued on with our Milestones in Music program this year, with our Favorite Ms. Debbie! We look forward to her Musical Visits each time! It is remarkable that she knows us all by name and can incorporate this into our Music Sessions! This is a wonderful way to 'shake our sillies' out during these yucky weather days! 
Speaking of Music & performances.....OUR ANNUAL CHRISTMAS SHOW was Outstanding! We were so proud of all of our children who sang their hearts out, danced and really put us in the spirit of the season! Thank you to our Teachers, Parents & Families who helped with practice, prep and namely for celebrating with us!!! In our humble opinion this Christmas show gets better and better each year!!!
       We are all working together each day to make Kids Unlimited your child's favorite Home Away from Home! Keep an eye on your children's classroom notes to keep up to date on our upcoming Winter in school events... Valentine's Day, Dr. Seuss week, Pajama day & more!

Merry, Merry New Year!

One little snowflake with nothing to do.
Along came another and
Then there were two.

Two little snowflakes laughing with me.
Along came another, and
Then there were three.

Three little snowflakes looking for some more.
Along came another, and
Then there were four.

Four little snowflakes dancing a jive.
Along came another, and
Then there were five.

Five little snowflakes having so much fun.
Out came the sun, and
Then there were none!

Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back!

A new season is upon us at Kids Unlimited Childcare! We hope that all of our families enjoyed their summer vacations & that many happy, summer memories were made with your little ones. "Making Memories" is a favorite adage of ours, both at home and at school. This week, we begin our school year again! Our teachers have been hard at work getting their classrooms, calendars and plans ready for a new year. We are grateful for their dedication to your children! As you take a walk through our hallways, you will see the many new projects that our classes work on each week. While it is hard to leave Summer behind, there is a certain excitement in the air... Fall Fun is just around the corner. We welcome you...please join us as we celebrate a new season. Look for our newest artwork to brighten up our Home away from Home, Enjoy our newly refreshed playground area & cherish these last warm days with your teachers and friends at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center! 

WELCOME!

RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY!

Despite some extra rain this May, we have continued on with our many Spring activities at Kids Unlimited Childcare! Our St. Jude Bike a Thon was a wonderful success again this year! We want to Thank everyone who sponsored a rider, all donations collected are donated to St. Jude's Children's Research hospital as they work tirelessly to heal children in both body & spirit.
You can learn more here:

Our Pre-K class with Miss Amy has very exciting news to share with all of us!
As a finale to their Earth Week Projects they have decided and officially adopted a Polar Bear, whom they named Artic. Their website calls this "a meaningful gift that gives back", you can read all about it here:

https://secure.defenders.org/site/SPageNavigator/wagc_polarbear.html
Earth Week continues at Kids Unlimited throughout the Year. Learning about animals, our environment and the impact that we have upon both is something that ties into many of our weekly themes. Ask your Pre K students about updates on 'Artic' & how they too can care for their little patch of Earth. We hope all of our children enjoyed learning about Bike Safety over the last few weeks, wearing our protective helmets, riding with our parents and keeping our eyes on the road! We are all hoping that our rainy season is passing and that their will be plenty of Bike Riding time now as the days are getting longer and warmer. Enjoy your time together!

EARTH WEEK AT KIDS UNLIMITED CHILDCARE



Spring is upon us at Kids Unlimited Childcare!

This week is one of our very favorite of Spring celebrations! Earth Week & officially Earth Day as celebrated this Friday on April 22nd. Pre-K is so proud of their newest carrot sprouts that are slowly, but surely, growing, growing, growing! They can not wait to harvest these carrots this summer! Stay tuned for photos and ask your Pre-K student how tall they are each day! This week, all of us focus on keeping our planet healthy. We have outdoor activities for all to participate in. We focus on keeping our areas clean, fresh and GREEN!
Our school is anxiously awaiting the arrival of our caterpillars! Together we will learn about their life cycle and care for them before their grand release as beautiful Butterflies. This is always such a wonderful day with our children. Bicycle Safety and our Annual Trike a Thon are on the horizon as well. Each year as we learn about Bicycle safety, the utmost importance of Helmet wearing, and the rules of riding our bikes we are also raising money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. See more here:

Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Welcome to November! After a fun-filled & spooky October we have entered our month of celebrating Gratitude. Before the Hustle and Bustle of the holiday season & after our Fire Safety, Pumpkin Carving, Halloween-ing & Trick or Treating of last month, we will take a pause and focus on All that we have in our lives to be Thankful for.  We know what an exciting time of year this is for all ages.

 

Much of this month at Kids Unlimited we will be working concepts of Giving, Sharing, Expressing our Thanks and Most of all remembering that we are all rich in family, friends, homes & health. We encourage you to get in the habit of demonstrating these thankful behaviors to your children. "What are You thankful for?" Not just in November, Not just on Thanksgiving Day, but all year long. Our Annual Thanksgiving feast is approaching, this year we will give thanks together with our classmates on Tuesday, November 24th. We wish all of our Kids Unlimited Families a very Happy, Healthy & Safe Thanksgiving this year. We hope all of you will enjoy your family time together. Stayed tuned for information regarding our Christmas show this year.

Make New Friends but Keep the Old Ones...

Welcome back to a New & Marvelous School Year at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center! Summer was Wonderful & it went by super fast this year, didn't it?! Many Happy memories were made both here and at home. What was your favorite Vacation memory this summer? Did you visit a new place? Did you make a new friend? Did you take the time to really enjoy all of the summer fun?

All of us at Kids Unlimited are looking forward to starting the New School year off right! Let's share our summer stories together and make new memories here with our school friends. September brings the fresh air of 'newness'
that we all enjoy. New pencils, new crayons, bulletin boards, classroom decorations and more. New friends, New teachers (have you met them?) New places to go & new things to learn. We are all mourning Summer a bit too. But what makes Summer so enjoyable, (we think) is the contrast of Fall, Winter & Spring. Special events are planned for each season of our time at Kids Unlimited....Stay tuned to see what we have in store this year! Here's to New Beginings, Fresh Starts & Learning Adventures for the 2015-16 school year.

SPRING is HERE?!

Aren't we all so anxious for some Spring like weather? Kids Unlimited children are happy to report that many mother robins have been spotted on our grounds. They are a welcome sign!!! Last weeks unexpected snow storm has left us all with some lingering winter snow, but we are all HAPPY to have entered officially into our Spring season!
Just recently, we celebrated our annual Dr. Seuss week long celebration of silliness, rhymes & wonderful genuis of the late Dr. Seuss. Ask your children what their favorite activity was... Could have been our Green Eggs & Ham? Pajama Day Party? Dr. Seuss story times? Or perhaps it was a combination of all of our silly Seuss fun shared with our teachers and friends.
Earth Day is Fast approaching here at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center. As you might gather from our website design, we honor this as a true holiday at KU. April 22nd is the official Earth Day, but we like to celebrate all month long.

REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE!

How can your family do simple things to care for the earth & ensure a bright future for our children & their children?

Coming soon, we also will begin our school wide study of caterpillars! We will feed, care & study their lifecycle closely as we wait for our most glorious event of releasing our butterflies to the world. Patience is required as they quietly grow, change and morph before our very eyes. Each year our Butterfly release is quite an event.


As the weather breaks we will be spending more time outdoors! Vitamin D, sunlight & fresh air will be a welcome addition to our time spent at Kids Unlimited. We encourage our parents, both current & new incoming families to make their summer plans with us for your children. We have many fun & exciting events in store! We hope you will join us for our Summer Fun Days at Kids Unlimited & tell a friend! Our family is always growing & we want all of our families to know just how much we appreciate all of you!

2015 Winter Greetings

snow

 

Welcome Back to Kids Unlimited Childcare! We trust that all of our families & friends had a lovely holiday season & that the New Year has been wonderful for all of you thus far! Typically the New Year is a time when many people want to start fresh and have goals that they hope to meet in the new year. Sometimes these are personal goals, sometimes they are goals for the whole family, for our homes and so forth. All of us @ Kids Unlimited Childcare use this time of year to see what we can do better here & carry that with us for the remainder of 2015. We hope that each of you reading this will find a way to make 2015 an even better year than last! Our teachers have been hard at work to keep the kids warm & busy during these most frigid, indoor play days. While most of us long for the weather to break & Spring to arrive, we are committed to making the most of our indoor time this Winter. Currently, we are collecting gallon sized milk jugs for our giant, school wide Igloo building project. We can't wait to see how it will turn out! Super Science Fridays continues to keep our Pre K class entertained & learning a love of science all the while. Each little scientist now has their very own lab coats & goggles to wear for each of their weekly experiments! Ask your kids today about what their most recent experimentation involved!

Upcoming events & themes at Kids Unlimited Childcare include Martin Luther King Day, Ground Hog Day & our Valentine's Day Party on Friday, February 13th !!!

We are all working together to make this Winter fun, educational & memorable for your children! We invite you to do the same. Until next time, stay warm & safe! And remember:

"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look what they do when they stick together."

Verna M. Kelly

 

 

 

 

GIVING THANKS!

Traditional Thanksgiving CornucopiaThe season of Gratitude is upon us! During the month of November we emphasize the many blessings that we have in our lives. Just this week we received our class & individual photos to share with family and friends over the Thanksgiving Break. We are excited to prepare for our Annual Kids Unlimited Thanksgiving Feast this week. It is time to try all of our favorite traditional Thanksgiving foods surrounded by friends before we leave to celebrate similarly with our families.
All of us at Kids Unlimited Childcare are thankful for the opportunity to care for your children each day. We are one big family here & hope that your Thanksgiving is one full of wonderful memories. Upon our return to school, we will soon begin to practice our hearts out for our upcoming Christmas show. This year it is scheduled for Monday evening, December 22nd. We warmly invite all of you to join us. Take a break from the holiday hustle & bustle! Sit back and enjoy your children as they remind us what Christmas is really all about.
And remember:

  • There is no sincerer love than the love of food. George Bernard Shaw

                  HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!

SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER TIME!

Summer Time FUN is Happening now at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center!

This week on Friday, July 25th, we will be celebrating Christmas in July! Keep an eye out for photos of all of these events & ask your children which has been their favorite place to visit! The warm weather has allowed us plenty of time to celebrate summer on site as well! Slip & Slides, Water Play, Ice Pops & plenty of sunshine have been a big part of our summer so far. We are happy to report that our crafting, creating & visits will continue for the next month and a half that we have left to finish out the Summer at Kids Unlimited Childcare.

Spring Has Sprung at Kids Unlimited Childcare!


Springtime
(to the tune of "The Muffin Man")

Springtime is garden time,
Garden time, garden time,
Get your spades and come outdoors,
Springtime is here!

Springtime is planting time,
Planting time, planting time,
Get your seeds and come outdoors,
Springtime is here!

Springtime is jumping time,
Jumping time, jumping time,
Get your ropes and come outdoors,
Springtime is here!

Springtime is singing time,
Singing time, singing time,
Children sing a happy song,

Spring is in the air at Kids Unlimited Childcare! We made it after a long & snow filled winter! With the recent warm weather, we are taking full advantage of our playground & outdoor space! Today was our annual Bike-A-Thon to raise money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital & to learn the importance of Bike Safety. What a valuable skill for the kids to embrace for the Spring and Summer months ahead. We look forward to this event each year. Up next at Kids Unlimited: MOTHER'S DAY! Lots of lovely Mother's Day surprises are in the works here. !!! Where would we be without our Mothers? Hug your Moms, MomMoms, Grammoms, Grans & GiGis today and everyday.

SNOW!

"Snow!
Snow! Snow!
Come out in the snow.
Snow! Snow!
Just look at the snow!
Come out!
Come out!
Come out in the snow.
I want to know
If you like snow.
Do you like it?
Yes or no?
Oh yes! Oh Yes!
I do like snow.
Do you like it
In your face?
Yes!
I like it any place.
What is snow?
We do not know.
But snow is lots of fun
We know.
What makes it snow?
We do not know.
But snow is fun
To dig and throw. "


Excerpt from the book SNOW! by P.D Eastman

The above book is so fitting for the January that we have had to start off 2014.
What a Winter Wonderland we have had so far this year! All of us at Kids Unlimited are hoping that our families & friends are keeping warm & keeping their spirits high as we begin to countdown our days until Spring! February will be filled with lots of Snow, Groundhog & Valentine's Activities to keep us all busy. Let's all hope that our friend Phil, the ground hog, does not see his shadow this year- Which will mean Spring is just around the corner. Think Spring!

October Happenings!

In Autumn
by Winifred C. Marshall

"They're coming down in showers,
The leaves all gold and red;
They're covering the little flowers,
And tucking them in bed
They've spread a fairy carpet
All up and down the street;
And when we skip along to school,
they rustle 'neath our feet
."

October is a wonderful time of year at Kids Unlimited! We have settled into a nice routine, the air is crisp and everything around us is changing into lovely colors!

October is Fire Prevention Month- We had a wonderful visit from North Penn Volunteer Fire Company! The children got climb into a Big Red Firetruck, learn about the importance of Fire Safety, Ask questions, Try on the (Heavy) Firefighter's gear & see that Firefighters are our friends! We are so Thankful for our community's volunteers who have been loyal visitors to Kids Unlimited each year.

Picture Day was a great success this week, thank you to all who participated! Class & Individual Photos will be distributed within just a few weeks.

Coming up next is our Surprise Pumpkin Patch!

Our Annual Halloween Costume Party planning is well underway! We are certain that it will be frighteningly good time for all!

Stay Tuned to our FB page to keep up to date with all of our recent photos, events & excitement at Kids Unlimited Childcare Center. Happy Halloween!

Green Thoughts for April!

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”~ Margaret Atwood

Welcome to our Earth Month Celebration! We have been learning all about our Mother Earth this month at Kids Unlimited! Spring has finally Sprung and we have turned our Earth Day celebration into a month long time of learning about growth, renewal and preservation.
We think Raffi has some great songs and positive messages about our Earth and would like to share them here with you. Perhaps his music says it better than we can.

One Light, One Sun Lyrics

by Raffi
One light, one sun
One sun lighting everyone.
One world turning
One world turning everyone.

One world, one home
One world home for everyone.
One dream, one song
One song heard by everyone.

One love, one heart
One heart warming everyone.
One hope, one joy
One love filling everyone.

One light, one sun
One sun, lighting everyone.
One light warming everyone.

We are looking forward to the continued growth of your children and their Love of learning. Learning to care for our planet is something we strive to do all year long at Kids Unlimited Childcare~ We emphasize Recycling, Reusing and Renewing this month and hope we can inspire the children & your families to do the same!

Dr. Seuss Week, Pajama Party, Summer Fun Fair~ Oh my!

Just a quick note to say Thank you to all who participated in our Many events over the last few weeks at Kids Unlimited! Dr. Seuss's Birthday inspired a week long celebration of reading, painting, snacking and learning about the wonderful Dr. Seuss. It was inspiring to see each teacher's and class's enthusiasm for these events. Everyone worked and played together in the name of fun & learning :) As many of you may know we included such events as our Green Eggs and Ham feast, our Dr. Seuss Reading corners throughout the school, Painting our feet for the Foot Book, Homemade Truffula Trees in honor of reading the Lorax, Making our Cat in the Hat hats, Swirly colored cupcakes reminiscent of "Oh the Places You'll Go!", One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue Fish treats, and finally our Pajama Party at the end of the week to truly enjoy our reading of the Sleep Book. We love to see how this simple theme grew each day and energized our school.
Immediately following our busy Dr. Seuss week we then participated in the 2nd annual NPUT Summer Fun Fair @ Towamencin Fire House!
Again, this was a Big event that really came together nicely, as we had our Flower & Spring themed table to share some of the great things about Kids Unlimited with the community. We hope this event will help our school continue to grow as more and more families hear about us.
A BIG Congratulations to the Betcha family who won our drawing for a free week of childcare this summer! Thank you again to all who entered our contest, paid us a visit and all of you who continue to make Kids Unlimited the very BEST place to be. We can't wait for all of the exciting events that are coming up~ stay tuned!

Lest we forget...

"You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing.  What!  Is it nothing to be happy?  Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long?  Never in his life will he be so busy again."  ~Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile, 1762
