What a blessing the children are to us!  May all your Christmas dreams come true this joyous season!

Sights and Sounds of Christmas is Saturday December 3rd. Please join us on our float ACCA kids “Light Up The World” @ 4:45 pm.  We are float #10….dress up like a character from National Lampoons Christmas.  Bring personal lights or glow sticks if you have them.

We will be open during the Christmas Holidays except Monday December 26th and Monday January 2nd so our employees may observe Christmas and New Years Day.

Several teachers will be on vacation, but you can expect the same quality of childcare.  There will be no preschool classes from Friday December 15th, through January 2nd.  We will have child care only those days,  blending classrooms as needed.  Each class will be given a sign up list for you.  Please let us know when your child will be here.  Please make sure to list days and hours you will be needing child care during the holiday season.

There will be no minimal hour charge the week of Christmas (December 26-30).  As you are filling out your plan of care needed, keep in mind that we are scheduling teachers according to the lists.  If you mark no and you find you need child care, be sure to call our office first, to see if we are able to take your child.  We will be running very tight ratio’s to allow our school family their vacation time and requested time off during the Holiday weeks.  We will be maintaining exact child to teacher ratio’s and if we have extra’s it could put us over our state mandated ratios.  We will do our very best to accommodate each and every family so please be accurate in stating your child care needs.

Please have your schedule completed by Wednesday, December 14th.  We are not accepting outside children over the break, only currently enrolled students.  Thanks for your help!

As you know, we allow one week vacation per child, after the 1st year of care, as well as 1 no minimal.  If you are eligible and haven’t taken your week’s vacation please feel free to take it over the Christmas break.  We will be open and ready to serve your families needs.  Merry Christmas!!!!!

Preschool – Mrs. Harden/Mrs. Kelli’s Class………….Preschool’s Christmas Program, “Frozen Christmas Eve“ will be Wednesday, December 14th @ 6:00 pm.  The preschool children will practice during class time.  It is very important to have them here by 9 every day, so everyone can be included.

Class Christmas Parties will be Thursday, December 15th.  Be looking for class notes!!  Busy Week!!!

Special Guest: Wed. Dec. 14th — Shhhhhhhhhhh….Santa will be coming!!   He will give each child the opportunity to share what they want for Christmas as well as give them a candy can and sack of goodies.  We will also have a beautiful Christmas Dinner that our school family will prepare.  The children will make decorations for the tables.  It will be awesome.

Thank you so much for paying your account in full each and every month.  We are able to offer the highest quality and educational care as possible when accounts are paid in full.
