Personal Items

  • Label all personal items (backpack, water bottle, lunch box, coats etc.).

  • Leave toys and electronics at home.​

    • School laptops may be used for homework.

    • We recommend phones and smart watches stay at home.


  • Send your child(ren) with a water bottle each day.

  • Before Care students are welcome to bring their breakfast with them.

  • The Back Pack provides an afternoon snack each day.

The Silo Center is a nut-free facility. Do not send any food items that contain any type of nuts or that are manufactured in a plant that produces nut products.


Students are encouraged to dress comfortably and appropriately for school.

  • Closed-toe shoes are preferred; to be able to fully participate in activities.

  • We love to play outside. Please send your child(ren) to the Back Pack with a coat for the winter and cooler days.



We provide (car) door to door service. Simply follow our kiss & ride pattern and pull up to the front doors. We greet each child at the door for Before Care drop off and walk each child to their car door for After Care pick up.

Each family is given a name placard to place on their dashboard. 

Throughout the year, our Silo Center programs partner with Hope For Help, the organization for all giving initiatives and community outreach at New Hope Church.


We thank you in advance for allowing us the opportunity to partner with you as parents in teaching your children the core value of helping others in need. Our hope is that we would all fully embrace both the desperate needs of those in our community and those across the globe, and understand the opportunity we have to help them. The result will be the joy of seeing our children develop as selfless individuals as they learn to put others' needs ahead of their wants. This is an incredible lesson for children and adults alike.
