Camp for the kids starts up again
Gary Wendlowski came on to talk about summer camp on campus for all the little tykes that invade every summer. He said that he expected them to have fun as they usually do every year. Adam Weatherell, the other guest, insisted they're "more than just summer camps," it's also a simulation for kids of what college life might somewhat be like for them someday.
Lori Johnson, manager of the Tot's Place on campus, talked about what goes into running an on-campus day care center. She mentioned that the day care center went to great lengths to get "above and beyond" the bare minimum requirements that the state has in place for what a place needs to be in order to run a day care on a school campus. After clarifying the place's credentials, Sandy inquired what to expect from "a day in the life." She mentioned that there's meal times designated for kids, lesson plans, and conduct reports for parents. That way, they feel that they're doing more than simply having kids plopped before a TV.
Lori also brought up that kids don't want to sit indoors during the summer when they can do other things. Therefore, kids in the Tot's Place during summer hours have been exposed to a little bit of everything on campus. This includes the golf courses. Scott asked what parents can do to learn more; and Lori reminded him that the school's home page provides links to the Tot's Place website.
Scott then questioned what defines Tot's Place the most. Lori argued that it's about "defining lifelong learners" from the youngest ages possible. An end-of-segment bumper reminded students that if they have children, they could contact Lori for more info at extension 2390.
Sandy brought up that Coach Becker was hoping for some better softball performances from her team by late April, especially since Ferris' softball program is a lot newer than that of Saginaw Valley. Scott also brought up that golf and track were getting somewhere.
