Older Preschool Storybook Parade

Our older preschoolers will parade our hallways dressed as their favorite storybook character on Thursday, October 29th at 9:15a.m. This is for our 3's, 4's and TK children in the following classes:

Litmanen, Tucker, Wolfe, Jones, Parker, Whitaker, Lawrence, Ramsey, Meyer, Moore, Brandenburg (Le), Murthy, Deichert

Please have your child dress as their favorite storybook character and bring the book to share. The parade route will run down our main hallway by the big fish tank for students then into the Atrium for parents. We ask that all parents in attendance please line the marked parade route throughout the Atrium. The children will parade down the main corridor in front of the sanctuary doors, then around the big circle so there will be plenty of room to get a "front row seat"! In order to keep a safe environment for our younger preschool children, all visitors and parents will be asked to remain in the Atrium and will not be allowed into the main hallway area.

Bring your cameras!

There will be NO CARPOOL on Thursday, October 29th for Storybook Parade.

Fire Truck Visit

One of the favorite events of our fall semester is when the fire truck comes to visit the CDC! Today, fire fighters from Richardson Fire Department Station #3 came to visit with our Older Preschoolers (and many of our Younger Preschoolers, too!). They talked to the kids about fire safety, dressed in their gear so the kids could see to not be scared of them when they come to fight a fire and let them walk around the fire truck to check out all the equipment. Thank you to RFD for so graciously giving of your time ... the kids certainly enjoyed it!

Carpool Reminders

Just a friendly reminder that our carpool days are as follows:

Morning Carpool is offered every day Tuesday through Friday.

Afternoon Carpool is only offered on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday and Friday, there is no afternoon carpool. This gives you the opportunity to meet with your child's teacher face to face each week.

Please always keep safety as your #1 priority when in our carpool lane and parking lot. Maintain a safe speed and remember we are a NO CELL PHONE ZONE.

REMINDER: Late Pick Up Policy

Your child's school day ends at 2:00 p.m. All children need to be picked up from their classroom or you need to enter the carpool line PRIOR to this time. At 2:05 p.m., all children who have not been picked up will be taken to the front desk and parents called. We will not automatically take any children to Stay and Play that do not have a reservation. If we cannot get a hold of a parent within a reasonable time frame, emergency contacts will be called.

ALL LATE PICKUPS WILL BE ASSESSED A LATE PICK UP FEE ON THEIR ACCOUNT ACCORDING TO THE FEE SCHEDULE IN OUR PARENT HANDBOOK. Please note that our Late Pick Up Policy applies to children in our Stay and Play program as well and fees will be assessed for children not picked up by 4:00 p.m.

It is very helpful to us if you can please call our front desk if you realize you are going to be late to pick up your child.
