4. Automatic payment/withdraw is the most convenient form of payment for you as a family to keep up with your child’s weekly tuition. Please be sure to ask the front desk for details on how to complete your registration for this process.
5. With the new school year beginning and transitioning of classrooms, a few students items have come up as being with the wrong student. If you have brought anything home that does not belong to your child, please return it. If you have misplaced an item or it has gone missing, we will have a lost-and-found located in our lobby for the next month. Please be sure to check here along with your student’s teachers.
Over these next couple of months, you will notice that we do not have any water play days scheduled in respect for the current restrictions in place for the drought we are in. However, we do have special events planned all throughout the summer months to keep the students busy and engaged. From classroom activities to puppet shows and movies, these students will have one summer to remember!
Please keep an eye out on the calendar, as these special events will come up quick and this summer is packed with fun. Also, please don’t miss out on our summer soccer camp with Mini Kickers, which is the week of July 13th! Sign up today!
I would like to make a quick note that with our closure on July 3rd, our next closure is not until AUGUST 28! This is a professional development day for our teachers, so please be sure to mark your calendars for this non-holiday closure. A calendar was originally produced with your parent handbook, that has an incorrect date of August 14 — this is NOT correct! Thank you!

Dear Toddler Parents,
We are looking forward to this month of July! We have fun activities coming up. Soda works class party, Backyard games, as well as a Bubble Party. We are exploring the wonderful world of shapes, numbers, and colors. We will be doing projects focusing on Mathematics, Technology, Wellness, and our Social/Emotional skills. Please remember that the school will be closed Friday, the 3rd. With the weather getting in the triple digits we want to remind the parents to bring lighter clothes as well as extra clothes. Also, please provide us with sunscreen so that we can apply it in the afternoon. Please bring your child with sunscreen on in the morning.
Ms. Kayla and Ms. Olga
Beginner 1 Classroom
Welcome to the Beginner 1 classroom with Ms. Li and Ms. Francis! We are very happy to have all our new friends in our class and are looking forward to many fun filled learning days with the children. During the first couple weeks of the new school year we will be focusing on getting the children familiar with their new surroundings, teachers, friends, and classroom rules and routine by incorporating them into the activities. We will focus on the children using their words to express what they want or need, saying please and thank you and sharing toys with their new friends. During the month of July the children will learn about 4 different themes with each week hosting a spirit day in honor of the color of the link (Blue, Teal, Green, & Yellow). During these weeks, we will make lesson plans that have age appropriate activities to help the children start to practice mastering their skills of the week. We will practice farm animal noises while playing with farm animal puppets and they will practice using descriptive words, dumping and pouring while they explore in dried rice and corn. July is going to bring so many fun activities. We hope you all have a wonderful July and are eager to watch and help your children grow.
Ms. Li and Ms. Francis
