Thursday, February 14, 2019 – Valentines Day Celebration

This is our time at school to share our caring feelings with each other. Children bring valentines for their friends on this day and each child will have a chance to deliver their valentines to their friends. To make it easier for them to be the postal carrier, please just have your child put their name on the cards, do not put the names to whom the valentines are for. Bring the cards in a bag with your child’s name on it. If your child is able to write their name, we encourage you to have them sign the cards. For children just learning to write, you can do hand over hand writing with them.

Fall Registration- For Families that are returning the next year. February 2019

Yes, you just get back from Christmas holidays and you have to start thinking about school for your child in September. There will be forms given to you within the next week. Please fill them out and return by February 13, 2019 with a $100 application fee. The tuition is paid yearly or divided into monthly payments based on the program you are registered in. We want to continue to have great, consistent, qualified staff! Priority for registration goes to returning students and younger siblings of students presently attending as long as we have the applications back by February 13. If your child is turning three after September 1, we are willing to hold a space for them to start after their birthday as long as you make note of it on the registration form (there is a fee for this request).

We wish our older students that are leaving the program the best in their new school!

Parent Questionnaires

TBA

Tax Receipts are issued at the end of the calendar year . Please check with your bookkeeper to see if you are able to use this as a child-care write off. We hope the government sees the value of a program such as ours!

House keeping

We love the time and care you put into your child’s education. It does take an effort to get your children to school on time and to trust us with their care. We appreciate it dearly and they bring so much joy to our hearts!

Sign-In/Out Sheet

Please remember to sign your child both in and out of class. Licensing requires the time and your initial beside it. This is also for your child’s safety, it helps us keep track of your child and also we know if your child has missed certain things that have occurred in class. Please tell anyone on your car-pooling list of our sign-in sheet.
