Birthdays & Holidays
Little Hands Big Hearts Preschool is a nut-safe school. LHBH staff shall not be responsible for the distribution of invitations, responses, or personal cards. Personal items should be delivered outside of the school setting. Birthdays may be celebrated by sending in a simple treat to be served with the daily snack on or near the child’s birthday. LHBH discourages goodie bags for birthdays and holidays since many of the items contained may be unsafe for some children. If goodie bags are sent in, they will be handed to parents unopened for the parent’s inspection. Holiday parties and celebrations take place at various times throughout the LHBH school year. Requests for treats are typically posted outside the classroom door. Parents are responsible for asking the Teachers in advance for the class numbers and any food allergies within the class. If a child has food allergies, a parent may choose to provide an individual nut-safe snack, or snack for the entire class. NOTE: Only store bought items with nutritional value labels on them are allowed. Teachers must be notified in advance before any parent provides a snack. This will give the Staff an opportunity to make appropriate adjustments for food allergies. For the safety of our students, snacks are distributed to the class only at the discretion of the Teachers in each classroom.
