Welcome To Salida Early Childhood Center

February 2023 

February is a month of relationships. As Valentine's Day approaches, the SECC focuses on healthy friendships. We do not celebrate holidays at school, as the children are too young to understand and it is a lot of work for parents. We ask that you do not bring valentine's or treats to school. Keeping a routine and schedule is best for preschool children. Talk to your children about friendships and how to be a good friend. This will be our focus through the month.

The weather continues to be cold and we can have snow until May. It is great for kids to be outside and we will continue to go outdoors for a time every day unless the temperature is below 18 degrees. If your family needs boots, coats, or hats and gloves, please let Heather or Sheri know as they have resources. If you forget something, the classrooms have some extra warm gear.

Also, a reminder that we will be conducting Home Visits March 8th-9th. The school will not hold class on those days so that our staff can prepare and conduct home visits. Home Visiting is a requirement of our Head Start and Early Head Star funding and is a great way to share information between the parents and the school. Thank you for sharing your children with us every day! We enjoy the smiles and all the learning that happens throughout the year!


The last thing I want to remind you is to let the office know if your phone number, address or email changes.  It is so important for us to be able to communicate with you!  

Thank you,

The Salida Early Childhood Center Team
