Mara's Memos

What a wonderful start to the new school year.  Thanks so much for our patience and attention to details.  Everyone should be settling into a routine and traffic…well, that's just going to get worse as they work on widening Hard Scrabble.  At least they finished the intersection at Clemson and North Springs! 

Hopefully, everyone has downloaded the free mykidzday App and is getting updates from their teachers.  If you have any questions about it, please let me know.  Also like our Facebook page.  We often put reminders and information on it as well.

We collect box tops here at HOPE Academy.  Every little bit helps!  Please trim them and turn them into your classroom teacher.  We will have a contest to see which classroom collects the most and they will receive a small prize for their room.  We also use the Publix card to help raise funds.  All fundraiser money goes to purchase Conscious Discipline materials for each classroom.  Thanks so much for your support.


Rate Increase

It is time for our yearly raise in tuition.  Further ABC requirements and the cost of living increases require us to increase our tuition so we can continue to provide quality care for your children.  Our prices, as always, are competitive with the other local daycares; we are higher than some and cost less than others.  Thanks so much for all your support and understanding.  These new rates will take effect August 21,  2017.

Tadpoles, Caterpillars, and Ladybugs- $188

Bumblebees, Monkeys, and Bears- $173

Owls, Birds, Butterflies, and Lions -$163
