I can’t believe that we are only a few weeks away from returning to school! I hope you all had a great summer, and are looking forward to an exciting year of preschool adventures here at The Creek!
I’ve been very busy here at The Creek getting ready for the new school year, and the teachers will return on August 18th to begin prepping their rooms for your children. There are a few reminders and dates I wanted to get to you right away as time seems to be absolutely FLYING these last few days of summer.
Reminder: Paperwork packets are due August 15. This includes your physician’s report for new students, which must be filled out by the doctor’s office. In this packet is your EFT paperwork, which is required for this year’s tuition payments. Due to parent request, we are continuing the Electronic Funds Transfer set-up for tuition payments, which take place August 15 through May 15 (10 equal payments for the year’s tuition).
We will continue to accept checks and cash for lunch bunch and other purchases. And if you’re planning to pay the full year tuition in full (with a 5% discount), you can send in a check for that as well.
START DATES: *Class lists will be posted Thursday August 21st by 10am.
Meet Your Teacher Days: Thurs. and Fri. August 21 & 22 from 10am-noon is your chance to stop in and meet your child’s teacher! The teachers will be working in their classrooms getting ready for the start of the year, and would love to meet your child before the first day of school. You can stop by either day, regardless of your class schedule.
Orientation Days: Our first days of school are special, as the children go to their class while you go to ‘your class’ – the parent orientation meeting. This abbreviated first start day is a great way to ease back into the school year, and makes the drop off process less intimidating for first year students (and their parents!)
- MWF & 5 Day Class Orientation is 10am-11:30am Mon. Aug. 25
- T-Th Orientation is 10am-11:30am Tues. Aug. 26 (You will not need to pack a snack for Orientation Day)
Extended Day starts on Wednesday August 27 for all classes.
5 Day Class Students: Tue. Aug. 26 is an Academic Day only. 8:30/9am start with noon pick up. Don’t forget your nutritious snacks with two food groups!
If you’re not signed up for regular extended day (billed with your tuition) your child can always join us for Early Birds (8am-9am), Lunch Bunch (12pm-1pm) or Extended Day (1pm-3pm) at the rate of $5/hour. If your child is staying for the afternoon, please make sure to pack a separate lunch. Tickets for the Extended Program are available through the school office.
