Planning Early for November

Happy November...well almost! I'm sending this newsletter out early so we can do some early planning! Many will have parties and other festivities going on next weekend, so let's get some planning done THIS weekend and free up more time for ourselves!

Speaking of time.....November 2 (that is next weekend), Daylight Savings ends! Don't forget to turn your clocks back by 1 hour before you go to bed on Saturday night. If you don't you will be SUPER early for church and everything else you have planned to do on Sunday!


Fall weather is here! That usually means lots of soup, stew and homemade bread here on the east coast! My husband and I are also excited that one of our daughters is hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year! In honor of this, you will notice some food related themes for November!

A Preschool Staff Handbook

I'm very excited to FINALLY have the Preschool Staff Handbook completed! When I started directing preschools, the handbook was 11 pages long. It is now 24 pages long and has been a work in progress!

There is an article available on my sister site, Preschool Director, with details on the sections you should consider if you are the one updating or creating a staff handbook for your program.

That article can be found at the following link:

Staff Handbook Article

In addition, I have created a COMPLETELY EDITABLE Staff Handbook for you! It has over 50 policies and procedures (yup! I've been busy!). You can download the handbook, edit/delete/add/change any of the policies and procedures and individualize it for your own program. It is only $5.00 USD in my store.
