Celebrations and Special Events

december birthdays
Our program is not affiliated with any religious philosophy and therefore does not observe any type of religious observance. Our staff respects each family’s individual beliefs. We understand that it is hard for young children to grasp different religious beliefs; therefore, we recognize and celebrate the seasons of the year. We ask that you share with us during enrollment any instructions regarding special traditions or beliefs that your family observes. Children may be exposed to different beliefs and ideas as children and families share their stories and thoughts throughout the year. Staff will use these differences as educational experiences and try to integrate these ideas into themes such as: understanding and respecting diversity.
      As a center, we believe in celebrating each child’s uniqueness. We do this by allowing the child to have “special day” on his/her birthday. On each child’s special day, the class will bake a cake together and then decorate the cake as a class. If the parents wish, we will sing “Happy Birthday” to the child once the cake is complete. You are more than welcome to leave a camera with the teacher if you wish for pictures to be taken. We understand that some individuals do not celebrate birthdays. At this young age, children might not understand differences in religious affiliations; therefore, this child will still be able to make a cake on his/her special day; however, this will be approached as a cooking activity instead of a birthday celebration.
No Religious Holidays or Celebrations.
Allison’s Infant & Toddler Center is a non-domination organization.  AITC does not celebrate any religious holidays.
