Mrs. Leslie has been nominated for Life Changer of the Year! Check out the link below to review. You can support her by leaving a comment under her profile and sharing this link!

On behalf of the entire team here at Our Kids Place, we’d like to say thank you for your loyalty and support. Our lives have been impacted greatly in the past several months, but we are working hard to evolve so we can continue to be a support system for you and your families. Part of this has been serving you in new, innovative ways. Currently, we are offering remote learning at home with our students and teachers.

OKP has always prided itself on promoting safety and cleanliness in our program, so many of these “new” health practices are not new for us. Looking ahead to when we can return to school, we have put more detailed policies in place to ensure the health and safety of our students. We plan to:

-Conduct more detailed wellness checks (including taking students temperatures upon entering the building.)
-Providing more handwashing/ sanitizing stations throughout the building.
-Making our classrooms more conducive to practice social distancing.
-Providing individually packaged meals.

Again, we thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you all again soon!

Be well!

Merlyn Peters, CEO

I trust this email finds you well and healthy. We have tried sending this email all morning without success.
If you are receiving this email, the NYC Department of Education has decided to close schools in light of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City. In order to ensure students are on task with the curriculum, we have taken the liberty of creating an at-home curriculum that follows this week’s focus question, “What happens when we put things in the water?”.

For each day we have a theme related activity, book (including a link to an audio version accessible on YouTube) and math activity. We encourage you to continue reviewing your sight words at home.

Resources from the Hewlett-Woodmere School District can be found at:

Also, the Department of Education has created a letter and resource packet for early learners. Please use this as an additional resource. The link can be found below.

In such times, Our Kids Place worries about the social and emotional stability of its young learners, therefore, we will be meeting tomorrow with staff to plan effective ways to continue our work to support our young learners and their families.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank You!
