SUMMER CAMPS 2014

Summer Camp registration is underway and space is limited! Three weeks of camp will be offered at $100 per session if you register and pay by April 30. Camp is open to children in Young 2's through 4's (children who were 2 by 1/1/14 and those will be starting Kindergarten this coming fall). Please visit our webpage for a camp flyer and registration form. We hope to see you at camp this summer!!!


“IT’S A SMALL WORLD” CAMP, MAY 19-23

A tour of the world will take us on a journey around the globe to meet new people, appreciate new cultures and climates and make friendships all along the way. Topics highlighted include diversity, inclusivity, hospitality and love for all creation.


“LITTLE LAB COATS” CAMP, JUNE 9-13

Just like Curious George and Sid the Science Kid, we will solve everyday problems using math and science skills and a little curiosity! Each day, children will go to the “lab” to explore basic science concepts and put their theories to the test.


“GO FOR THE GOLD” STORY CAMP, JULY 7-11

Discover the wonder and excitement of reading as we focus on medal-winning children’s literature. Children will also explore the creative writing process as they learn about character, plot and setting. Each class will write a book over the course of the week and discover the little author and illustrator inside them!

PARENT SURVEYS NEEDED

A parent survey will be provided to you via email on April 14. Your feedback is so important as review our programs, facilies and staff. The survey is completely confidential and your honest input is welcome! The survey will be open through April 27.

ENROLLMENT FOR 2014-2015

ENROLLMENT FORMS NEEDED: If you were offered a class placement for next year, the last step in the process is to complete an enrollment form to formally accept this offer and keep your child's slot for next year. This form is available from Mrs. Laura and was emailed to you with your placement notice. Contact Mrs. Laura if you need it sent to you again or stop by the preschool desk for a copy.


A FEW SLOTS REMAIN: While some classes are full, there are a few slots left for next year. We welcome you to recommend Weekday Preschool to your friends and neighbors. Contact Mrs. Linsey or Mrs. Laura to determine what options remain for each age group.
