Welcome To Salida Early Childhood Center

February 2024

Dear Families,

February is International Friendship Month! This is a time to focus on building connections and supporting those around us. Here at SECC, we focus on building friendships throughout the year as this is a key skill to future success in school and in life. Teachers spend time teaching children about kindness, empathy, and other qualities that support friendships, and then offer lots of opportunities to practice these skills. 

While we do not celebrate Valentine’s Day at SECC, and we ask that you not bring in treats or valentines, I do encourage you to spend some extra time sharing with your child what it means to be a good friend. Keep it simple and remember children learn best from you and through play. If you would like any specific ideas, please reach out to your child’s teacher. Additionally, if you need any support as a caregiver building connections to our community, reach out to Sheri or Heather. Please know this month we will be celebrating the connections we have with each of you. 

Thank you for sharing your children with us.  In the words of teacher Hannah in Room #106, they really are all so easy to love!
