A Lil' Institute - July 2014

Important Dates

Summer is flying by and our summer program will be over in only 4 weeks! This week it's all about The Arts and we cant wait to transform our space into our studio. With summer almost over A Lil' Institute will be closed the last week of August. We do this each year to prepare for our preschool year as well as make any needed repairs and updates to the building and/or playground. August invoices should reflect your prorated rate. Please note the following dates:

Summer Program Ends - August 21st at 4:30 pm

A Lil' Institute will be closed:

August 22 - 31st
September 1 - 2

Preschool Year Begins - Wednesday, September 3rd

Weekly "Drop-ins"

Summer allows us to be more flexible and many of our families have different needs each week. For those of you that do not have assigned days, we ask that you give us at least a 48 hour notice if your child(ren) plan on attending any upcoming dates. This allows us to staff appropriately and Ms. Chelsey will be going out of town a couple times this month which means we will not have someone on standby.

Preschool 2014 - 2015

Preschool welcome packets should be available in about 2 weeks. The welcome packet will inform you of all the preschool basics. In September we will be exploring Space through science and literature!

School Aged Programs

A Lil' Institute not only has a summer program for school-aged kids, we also provide programs during other times during the school year. We are open during many dates when school is out, during breaks and school closures. You can check out our calendar at www.bendprek.com starting in late August to check out dates!

Half-Day Programs

While summer has provided us with a more flexible schedule please be sure you understand our half-day drop-off and pick-up policies. Preschool begins at 8:30 and pick-up should occur between 12:20 - 12:30 pm. This ensures a smooth transition for nap time and allows our teachers to enjoy their own lunch breaks. If you drop your child off after 8:30 am, they still need to be picked up between 12:20 - 12:30 pm (unless prior arrangements have been made with Chelsey). Children that remain after 12:30 pm will result in a late pick-up fee ($1 for each minute late).
