JANUARY 2018

A very happy and healthy New Year is wished to you and your family! We hope everyone’s holidays were merry and bright and the year 2018 will bring joy and happiness to all of us. 

TAX TIME
Please make note of Young World’s Federal Identification Number 04-2978-936. You will need this number when you do your taxes. If you need a year-end statement, please put your request in writing and Jessica Clark will prepare it for you ASAP.

2018-2019 ENROLLMENT
 I know it is hard to believe, but we will soon begin the enrollment process for our 2018-2019 Nursery School, Child Care and School Age Programs. Watch for details.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

  • Young World will be CLOSED on Monday, January 15th for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

  • January 29, 2018 – (9:00-11:30) Nursery School will NOT be in session on Monday, January 29th. That is a NO School Day for the Easthampton Public Schools as well.

A survey has been posted regarding that day for the Kindergarten Bear Cubs and the Voyagers.  Thank you in advance for your prompt response to that survey.

NOTES TO TEACHERS
For privacy reasons please leave notes for Teachers in the Tuition Boxes. Rest assured these boxes are checked several times each day, and messages are promptly relayed to the appropriate Teacher. Thank You!

IMPORTANT REMINDER
Young World will be CLOSED for a Professional Development Day. We anticipate the date to be 3-30-18.

TUITION PAYMENTS
As stated in the Parent Handbook, payment of tuition is due by Friday, for the upcoming week. A one-day grace period is allowed (by Monday at 5:30 P.M.).  A $5.00 late fee will be charged beyond the grace period. Holiday closings/child absences do NOT change the weekly tuition rate.

GENERAL REMINDER
Young World opens promptly at 7:30am and closes promptly at 5:30pm. Please be mindful to coordinate this schedule into your arrival and departure times.

SAFETY FIRST
 For safety and liability reasons children cannot be left unsupervised in our building. Please accompany your child/children to their cubby to deposit /collect their belongings at the beginning and end of their day, regardless of their age. Thank You!

LET'S STAY HEALTHY
Please help us keep your children healthy this winter. We will do our part by keeping things clean and disinfected, encouraging lots of hand washing, giving reminders about covering up coughs and sneezes, and bringing your children out to play in the fresh air as often as possible. 

We ask that you help us by teaching your children how to wipe/blow their own noses, by sending all of the necessary winter- wear for outdoor play, and by keeping your children at home long enough to truly recuperate from any illness. For more information please reference Young World’s Fever and/or Vomiting Policy on page 6 of your Parent Handbook.

SNOW DAY REMINDER
As stated in the Parent Handbook, whenever the Easthampton Public Schools close due to inclement weather, there will be NO (9:00 -11:30) Nursery School. If there is a delay of Public School, Nursery School will begin at the regularly scheduled time. If in doubt, please feel free to call.

Young World will be open for Child Care and School Age Care on (most) snow days (days when public school in Easthampton has been cancelled). On such days we will open with a skeleton staff and evaluate as the situation as the day progresses.  We would appreciate a phone call from you to let us know if your child is coming in or not. If we do not hear from you by 10 A.M. we will assume that your child will not be attending school that day.

Although we are open for child care on (most) snow days, the safety of our teaching staff is important to us. Therefore, if your employer closes early due to inclement weather, please come and pick your child up promptly so that we may close early and send our staff home safely.

If we do need to close The Center it will be announced on WGGBabc40(Western Mass News) and WWLP-22News.

WINTER GEAR
 Please remember playing outside is an integral part of a quality pre-school program. Whenever the temperature permits we do go outside to play. Of course, in order to play outside safely & comfortably we need your help. Please send your child with winter gear (winter coat, hat, mittens, boots and snow pants) each and every day. These items are necessities for our Kindergarteners, our First, Second, Third, and Fourth Graders as these children must walk to and from school everyday regardless of the weather. 

SNOW SAFETY
At times we may be closing off the entrance at the end of the long sidewalk due to snow sliding off of our roof. Although there are snow guards in place, ice and snow coming down onto the sidewalk is a concern. During those times we will be using the very front entrance to the building. Thank you for your cooperation.
