February 
Welcome February!!! We had a great time in  December and January with our holiday parties and The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, Wings of Wonder, came to visit. Mr. Eddie brought, owls, a penguin and a skunk. We learned about different bird’s feathers, what they eat,and where they live. It was a wonderful!!
A huge thank you to all of the families that donated items on our mitten tree. MEAC was very appreciative of the highly needed items they received. 
Parent Teacher Conferences

It is time for Parent/ Teacher conferences. Later on this month your child’s classroom will have a sign up with times.  This is an important opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teacher and talk about their progress here at school. If you are unable to attend on this date we would be more than happy to schedule a conference on a different date either before or after school. We are also able to provide phone conferences if needed.
2018/2019 Open Enrollment

Safety is of the up most importance at Indian Hill Church Nursery School and as such we are always reviewing our safety procedures. There are a few things to be aware of to ensure children’s safety in the parking lot. During drop off and pick up time there are many children in the parking lot with their parents and we want to make sure that we are driving with caution at extremely reduced speeds to help ensure the safety of children and their families as they are coming to and leaving school. Also, I am sure many of you are aware that there is a separate entrance and exit to the parking lot. This is to help with the flow of traffic and reduce accidents. Please make sure to observe these at all times. 
  At the end of January,  the Nursery School Staff and Church Staff met with the Indian Hill Rangers to complete our annual emergency/lockdown training. As a result we are asking all Nursery School families to please come in and out through the Nursery School door, even when picking up early or coming to school late. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
