What a blessing the children are to us! May all your Christmas dreams come true this joyous season! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Love, Carrie Sowers and Your School Family.
We will be open during the Christmas Holidays except Tuesday, December 25th and Tuesday, January 1st, so our employees may enjoy Christmas and New Years Day with family. (Christmas Eve will depend on amount of Children needing care)
Several teachers will be on vacation during the break, but you can expect the same high quality of care. There will be no preschool classes from Monday, December 17th, through Tuesday, January 1st. We will have child care only during the break. We will be blending classrooms as needed. Each class will be given a sign up sheet for you to complete. 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 so we can plan for enough staff.
There will be no minimal hour charge the week of Christmas (December 24-28). As you are filling out your plan of care needed, keep in mind that we are scheduling teachers according to these 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 12th. 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. 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.
