Toddler aged children are monitored by sight and sound of a staff member, during all activities throughout their day at St. John’s Child Care Center. Transitions are minimized and staff-child ratios are maintained at all times. Please check the parent sign-in area for information regarding special events. For example: field trip sign-up sheets, family dinners and events, parent education, fundraisers, conference sign-up sheets, etc. Your signature and/or a small fee may be necessary in order for you and/or your child to participate.
