Letter from the Director!
Reaction to Change:
Our West Center building, staff, children, and families will be going through some changes within the next couple of months. The time has come for Washington County Child Care Foundation to go a different direction than The Delaware Tribe of Indians. From now until June 1st, our center will be transitioning the children and families and some staff from our Bartlesville center to our West center. Our staff are dedicated to making the transition from the Bartlesville Center to the West Center go as smoothly as possible for all our children and families. With this change, some of your children could be transitioning up to another class, they could have an additional teacher assigned to their current classroom, and they will be having new friends added to their classrooms.
Some children find changes hard, while others will take change in stride. Please be patient with your child while they go through these transitions. Talk ahead of time about the new classroom and playground as well as their new teachers and friends they will meet.
While this is intended to be a good change for the children, we all need to be sensitive to their signals and give them a little extra support during the times they are having trouble with a transition of any kind.
West Site Director
