Q. How do I transition my child into Lullaboo?
A. Lullaboo recognizes that all children have specific needs and different schedules. As children are incorporated into the Lullaboo family, all necessary and reasonable measures will be taken to ensure a smooth and pleasant transition experience for the children and for the parents. Lullaboo will setup three transition days prior to your commencement in the classroom where you and your child will come in together and learn more about the routines of the classroom, while we learn about your child and you.
Q. How much time do children have outdoors daily?
A. Each classroom is allotted at least 2 hours of outdoor play per day. We have oversized outdoor playgrounds which are separated into different sections by age group. Each playground is equipped with a different variety of interactive equipment to promote physical activity and gross motor development.
Q. What is Lullaboo’s policy on disciplining children?
A. At Lullaboo we believe that we can help children with self-control, self-esteem and positive behavior by providing enriched programs, a safe environment, interactive materials and positive role models in each of our classrooms. We do not condone timeouts or the raising of voices in our classrooms. Teachers discipline children by bringing themselves to the level of the child and speak to them in a calm voice about their behavior and actions, the teacher then positively redirect the child to another activity. Please see Lullaboo’s Parent Handbook for our full policies.
Q. What types of food are the children served?
A. At Lullaboo our menu is designed with kids at heart. Health Canada’s document “Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide” is the basis of nutrition in our menu. Our menus are rotated on a four week cycle, which provides variety for all of our children. Milk, water, fruits and vegetables are provided with every meal. Of course, substitutes to accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions are available at all our centres. Our full menu is available on our website for ease of reference, on our Nutrition page.
