NOVEMBER 2018 

 

FAMILY NIGHT
Thank you to all the families that were able to participate in our annual Family Night on October 17th. I was overwhelmed by all of the children who were eager to show off their school. Each classroom was overflowing with excited children, and their Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Friends. All in all, more than 50 children came to school that night! 

The turnout was exceptional! Thank You, Holly

HALLOWEEN RECAP
What terrific costumes were seen around here for Halloween! The children had a great time trick-or-treating at Florence Bank, The Taylor Agency, Silver Spoon, and Premo’s Cuts Hair Salon while out on their Halloween Parade. 

Our thanks go out to all of you who sent goodies for our classroom parties. We appreciate your generosity.

IN ANTICIPATION OF CHILLY WEATHER
Ask any teacher here and they will tell you there is a noticeable temperature difference from the front sidewalk to the playground out back. It can be like a wind tunnel back there. Please be sure to dress your child appropriately for outside play. This includes sneakers, a warm coat, a hat, and mittens (please NO gloves as “Mittens are Easy & Gloves are a Pain”). 

Hopefully we won’t need this reminder for a while, but just in case – whenever there is NO Public School due to inclement weather the Nursery School will not be in session.  This pertains to the Feathered Friend and Forest Friend Nursery School classes.  Our other programs will be running as usual.

GIVE US A CALL
This is just a reminder that you are welcome to call the teachers to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child. Please keep in mind that naptime is usually the most convenient time for the teachers to take phone calls. Young World’s phone number is 527-3983.

ALL PARENTS
Young World will be CLOSED on Monday, November 12th in observance of Veterans’ Day, and on both Thursday, November 22nd and Friday, November 23rd for Thanksgiving.

POLICY REMINDERS

  • Holiday closures/absences do not change the weekly tuition rate.

  • For safety & liability reasons children cannot be left unsupervised in our building. Please accompany your child/children to their cubby/classroom to collect their belongings at the beginning and end of their day, regardless of their age. Keep in mind children may not play in classrooms (even when accompanied by their parent) if a Young World Teacher is not in the room.

  • Young World closes promptly at 5:30p.m. A late fee will be charged when a child is picked-up after closing time. If possible, please call us if you know you are going to be late so we can assure your child that you are on your way.

  • A telephone call is requested if your child is going to be absent for any reason and is required if Young World is responsible for walking your child to/from public school.

  • Safety First – parking for parents is along Main Street, the parking lot in the back of the building is for Staff Only.

  • If your child has been vomiting or had diarrhea your child should not attend Young World. Your child should be symptom-free with no vomiting, diarrhea, or fever for 24 hours before returning. If your child has been running a fever of 100 degrees F or higher your child should not attend Young World. Your child should be fever-free without medications (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen) for at least 24 hours before returning.

  • Payment of tuition is due by Friday for the upcoming week. A one-day grace period is allowed (by Monday at 5:30p.m.). Failure to keep tuition payments on schedule will jeopardize your child’s enrollment. Accounts that fall 2 weeks behind will result in termination of care.

We thank you for your adherence to Young World’s policies.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OF OUR YOUNG WORLD FAMILIES!
