MAY 2018

WARM WEATHER
Hopefully the warm weather is here to stay. Please feel free to send in a sun hat. Even in the Spring, sunscreen is important, but please keep in mind for most sunscreen to be effective it needs to be applied well in advance of sun-exposure so it is best to apply sunscreen to your child at home before he/she comes to school, and then we will reapply sunscreen as needed. Please feel free to also send in Insect Repellant for protection against those pesky bugs. We ask that you clearly label any sunscreen or insect repellant that you send in with your child’s name.

SAFETY FIRST
Just a reminder, sneakers are the footwear of choice here at Young World and must be worn both indoors and out. Please observe the following important safety policy: sandals, clogs/Crocs, jellies etc… may NOT be worn here at Young World.

HOLIDAY CLOSURE
Young World will be CLOSED on Monday, May 28th for Memorial Day.

THANK YOU
Our Thanks go out to the following businesses who allowed us to display artwork in their windows during The Week of the Young Child: Florence Bank, Banas & Fickert Insurance Agency, Premo’s, The Taylor Agency, Goat Peak Strings, Shark Tank Tattoo, Silver Spoon and Tandem Bagel. 

We hope you had a chance to see some of the artwork.

GRADUATION CEREMONY
Our annual graduation ceremony will take place here on Friday, June 8th at 9:30. Any child who is going to kindergarten this Fall will be graduating. 

Additional information will be posted by the Sign-In Books. Watch for details.

PREPARING FOR SUMMER
Enrollment is well underway for all of our Summer Programs! It may be hard to believe but Summer will be here shortly and we are beginning to plan our Summer Programs. As in years past, new children will be starting at Young World, some children will be changing classrooms, and some children will take the Summer off. As we prepare for the transition to Summer, teachers will begin talking about the upcoming changes and addressing the transitions that the children will be experiencing. 

As our plan for Summer takes shape, and groups are formed, we will keep you informed.

SUMMER PROGRAMS

  • Early Education and Care
    If you have not yet informed us of your Summer child care needs, please do so by May 18th.

  • Summer Nursery School
    We still have several openings in our Summer Nursery School and Pre-K classes. The Summer sessions for these classes will be from July 2nd through August 17th. The Nursery School class for 3 and 4 year olds will meet daily from 9:00 – 11:30 and our Pre-K class will meet daily from 8:30 – 11:30. Families may choose as few as 2 days per week right up to 5 days per week. 

If you have not yet confirmed your Summer plans with us, please do so by May 18th. 

VACATION REQUESTS
Please remember tuition free vacation requests must be submitted at least two weeks in advance of a vacation. You will find vacation slips by the main tuition box. Tuition free vacation time will be granted only after 5 months of enrollment. 

Just a reminder, if your child is enrolled for the school-year (10 months), you are eligible for one tuition free week, and if your child is enrolled for the full calendar year, you are eligible for 2 tuition free weeks.

OPEN HOUSE ATTENDEES
Young World’s annual Open House took place on the afternoon of Sunday, April 29th. Several new families were in attendance along with a few familiar faces. It was wonderful to see children and their families exploring the classrooms, enjoying the activities, chatting with our staff and with each other!

SPEAKING OF GOOD-BYES
If your child is having a “Last Day” soon or just taking the Summer off (but will be returning in the Fall), please put his or her last day in writing for us ASAP so that we can plan accordingly.

Parents are welcome to send in a special snack on their child’s last day, but please keep allergies in mind and check with your child’s teacher before you send anything in.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST
We would like to extend our thanks to our special guests, Tom Ricardi & his birds of prey and to the many Parents & Grandparents who attended our Color Parade, for taking time out of their busy schedules to help us celebrate The Week of the Young Child!

Thank You!
