Our Parents Corner
Welcome to the Parents Corner! Our goal for the Parents Corner is to provide parents with current news from A Gift from Heaven Academy as well as helpful resources and other information.
We'd rather spend my time playing with the children instead of staring at a computer screen, but we'll do my best to keep the Parent Corner updated - feel free to remind us if we forget!
For the most up-to-date news, check out our Facebook feed.
Please also take a moment to look over the wish list to see if any of your unwanted "trash" could be our "treasure!"
Lesson & Meal Plans

Here's a sample of our meal plan.
Studies have shown that children do better when parents and teachers work together for the child's well-being. Discover how our partnership in our Parents Handbook will result in mutual benefits, and will also benefit your child!
Part of our partnership is the safety of your child. All parents and guardians must adhere to our COVID-19 precautions. You can download, review, and sign our COVID-19 consent form.
Parents of enrolled children can simply drop donated items off when they bring their child for care. If you do not have children enrolled, please contact us to arrange a time to stop by.
Donations of items not on the list are also happily accepted, however, we do not use "commercialized" items, like those based on TV shows or movies. Items don't have to be new; we like gently used items too, as long as they're clean and safe for the children. Thank you for your support!
