We have finished moving all the preschoolers to their new classrooms. The children are settling in and adjusting to new routines. All classes are working on "All about me" or 'I am special" concepts this month. At any time you have any questions or concerns please talk with your child's teacher or one of the directors.
The city is replacing a water main this month in the neighborhood. There might be some construction work in front of the school. You will be able to get to the school by going all the way down Seamus until it ends at Piedmont, turn right and then come down either Casiliada or Apollo.
A reminder that we will be closed on Columbus Day, Monday, October 13th. Our holidays for the rest of 2014 are November 11 (Veteran's Day), Thanksgiving Holidays (November 26th @ 12:30, all day on November 27th and 28th), Christmas Holidays (December 24th, 25th & 26th), New Year's Eve (December 31st)
Picture Day is scheduled for Wednesday, October 8th. There is no money due up front. You will receive a pack of pictures about 3 weeks after pictures are taken and may choose to buy no pictures or all pictures. More Information will follow.
The butterflies are starting their zoo phonics program. It is amazing to see how fast they are learning the sound and signal for each letter. They are learning how to sound out the letters and then put them together to read the words.
The Infant and toddler groups are also working on "I am special." We are enjoying looking at the 'posters' the parents have been sending in. Please remember to send in immunization updates every time your child receives one. Thank you.
Share day for the butterflies is Thursday. Share for the Bumble Bees and Caterpillars is Tuesday. Remember NO weapons or super hero or related items.Children will not be allowed to share these items. Thank you! Remember that children should not bring in toys or other items except on share day. These items can get lost or broken or cause hurt feelings. Thank you for your help in following this policy. Books or CD's are welcome any day.
When dropping off or picking up your child please remember to pull in from the north driveway and park so that 2 cars can fit side by side. (But please allow enough space for the gate to open.) Also our wonderful neighbors @ Fresh & Quick Catering allow us to use their lot however they do ask that you use the spaces facing Riverside Blvd and not along the building or the fence separating our properties. During their business hours please do not use Japanese Service Center's parking lot.
Some meal reminders we serve breakfast until 8:15, morning snack (between 9:30-10:00), lunch at 11:30 and afternoon snack (about 3:30). We ask that no outside food come into the center for individuals. Snacks for your child's class group are welcome. We remind you that we have a nut free school. Thank you for understanding these policies..
We remind parents to please keep all work, home and cell phone numbers updated. This is for parents and any other contacts you have listed for us. It is really important that we be able to reach you if we need to.
Remember to check coat racks for coats, jackets and sweaters you may have left. We have quite a collection right now. Please label all coats and sweaters.
Tuition is due on the first of each month. We do not bill. Remember the full month's tuition is due even if your child misses some days due to vacation or illness.
