April in Review
Everyone in the Preschool has been busy preparing for our special visitors to attend the much anticipated Preschool Spring Breakfast/Brunch. The school is beginning to fill with the wonderful smells of our smallest bakers, cookies and an assortment of other treats! The children have also been working hard to ensure their classrooms are properly decorated! I love this time of year for many reasons, but these gatherings most certainly top the list. Watching the children work so hard for this special day, the excitement and anticipation leading up to the gathering and then the arrival of all the special guests really make my heart melt! I look forward to the days ahead!
Please be on the lookout for our annual Program Evaluation. This is an important part of our annual program review. We look for your feedback to ensure we are providing the best programming possible for all of our families. I thank you in advance for taking time to thoughtfully respond to the questions included in the evaluation.
Ice Cream Social
Next month we will host our annual Ice Cream Social. This free event is held in honor of all of the families enrolled in the Preschool and Children’s Center. The date for this wonderful event is Wednesday, June 7th with a rain date of Thursday, June 8th (6:30-7:30pm). Everyone is invited! Administrators, Teachers and Board Members will be on hand to chat with everyone. Please come to help us celebrate the end of yet another fantastic school year here at Cof!
It is time to start thinking more seriously about sun protection. The sun can be pretty strong for the children in our care and it is important we take the proper measures to protect them! Please remember to apply sunscreen before you send your child to school. If your child stays for the afternoon, please be sure to send in a clearly labeled tube of sunscreen. Our staff will use this to reapply sunscreen in the afternoon.
2017-2018 School Year
All deposits for the upcoming school year must be paid on or before June 1st to secure your child’s spot for the upcoming school year. Should your plans for the upcoming year change, please let us know as quickly as possible. This way we are able to contact families who are on the waitlist for the upcoming school year.
