Mara's Memos

Everyone is gearing up for summer it seems.  Many of our students are leaving us soon to go to "big school" for the next school year.  Please come back and visit us!  While we will be missing our little ones who have outgrown us, we will also be getting in a new crop of children for us to help raise.  This is a crazy transition period for us all.  Please take the tie to talk to our child about the upcoming changes, so they are not taken by surprise.  Even if they will be here all summer, many of their friends will not.

Please let us know at least two week in advance, in writing, if your child is leaving us.  We have a short form you can fill out in the office or you can email me your notice.  If your child will be in the Threes or Fours in August and you have already paid your book fees, your child can take the summer off.  You will not have to pay tuition all summer and you will not lose your space for your child in the fall.  We can't guarantee a spot for your child until the new school year begins on August 20th.  We usually don't have a problem taking the children the week before if needed, but I can't guarantee it.  If your child is in the younger classrooms and you choose to remove them for the summer, but want to come back in August, your child will be placed on the waiting list.  We can't guarantee a space for your child and all fees will have to be paid again.  Please see the office with any questions.
