We look forward to spending the summer with your littles! Session 1 will be led by Keely & Mari, Session 2 by Janis & Keely, and Session 3 by Janis & Mari.
Let me take the chance to introduce myself briefly. My name is Keely Nugent. I am a wife and mother of two children, Riley (8) and Callen (6), a bunny and a black lab. This is my second year at FUMP, and I have been enjoying every minute of it! My educational background includes a Bachelor of Business Administration degree (double major in International Business and French) and a Master of Public Administration degree, emphasizing Nonprofit Management. I am also currently midway to earning my Child Development Associate Credential. My early childhood experience ranges from parenting, camp counselor, nanny, and in the classroom.
My name is Janis Morgan. I’m looking forward to spending Summer Sessions 2 and 3 with your children! This summer wraps up my eighth year at FUMP after returning in 2013; I also taught here for several years in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Although I’ve taken a break here and there, Early Childhood Education accounts for the bulk of my career; all in all, I’ve been teaching for more than 25 years. Sometimes that surprises even me when I see it in writing.
First day details: Your child will need lunch, snack, and a water bottle; one full change of clothes; and a nap mat – the kind with attached pillow and blanket (more about rest time below). If your child is toilet training, you may want to send a few sets of clothing. We also have plenty of room to store diapers. Please apply sunscreen and bug repellent, if desired, before drop-off. (We will probably try to spend as much time outside as possible, early in the day before it gets too warm.)
Our designated drop-off/pick-up is Colorado 1, the glass doors just south of the parking lot on the Capitol side.
Our core day includes a rest period. Sleep is optional, but relaxation is encouraged. Please let us know if you want your child to nap here or if that interferes with your at-home sleep schedule.
Many of our summer activities will involve things like paint, shaving cream, potting soil, water (hence the change of clothes) – not necessarily all at once, but you never know!
See you soon –
Janis and Keely and Mari
