A Message from the Principal:
WOW, where did the school year go? June is here and we are gearing up for a variety of fun-filled Summer experiences! Please feel free to pick up a preschool calendar located at our summer lobby display. Above and beyond fun summer plans, our Links to Learning curriculum will continue to offer skill-based lessons that are unique, age-appropriate and brought to life in a fun imaginative way. All age groups will participate in activities designed to deepen their understanding of the world around them, while preparing them for the upcoming school year. In addition, graduating Pre-Kindergarten students attending this summer will continue to strengthen skills necessary for a successful start to Kindergarten, by participating in the Summer 2016 “Kindergarten Kick-Off” program. We want to be sure our graduates are confident and prepared for the opportunities they will face in their academic future. On that note, we are so amazed at the growth and academic success our Pre-K students have shown but are sad to let them go. We hope to continue to see them grow when they join us during summer, winter and spring breaks for camp. We also offer a camp for teacher work days throughout the school year. We don’t have to say goodbye, just see you soon!
Once again, thank you for sharing your beautiful children. We are grateful that you have chosen Chesterbrook Academy for your child’s early education!
With so much going on this month, please read below so you are aware of upcoming June events.
Have a Great Summer!
Melinda Willey, Principal
Nicole Pezzullo, Assistant Principal
Our Pre-Kindergarten graduation was fabulous! Thank you to ALL Chesterbrook Academy families for contributing your time and support. The Pre-K annual fundraisers were a hit, and made it possible for us to celebrate this special milestone in our Pre-K students’ lives in grand style!
Links2Home has been great! Teachers love how easy it is to use, and more importantly appreciate that it allows them more time with the children, not having to write daily reports. Thank you for all the positive feedback, we are so proud to be able to communicate more effectively about your child’s days at school. For new families who just joined us, please take a moment to read the following link about Links2Home.

A Powerful Connection to a Lifetime of Learning
Your children experience the perfect balance of of learning and play in a safe, nurturing environment. Our Links to Learning (LTL) curriculum prepares them for kindergarten by introducing concepts in reading, math, art, music and much more. You will receive progress updates, as well as ideas to continue learning at home.
As a reminder, we encourage you to take a few moments each week to review your child’s classroom Links to Learning “Parent Board”. This is one way you can “Link” to your child’s early education experiences. Posted are “Weekly Skills”, “Lesson Plan”, “Daily Schedule”, “Monthly Spanish”, “Learning Outcomes” and the daily “What We Learned Today”.
SIGN-IN & SIGN OUT LOGS:
Signing your child in and out daily is not only a licensing and company policy, but an added security measure in making sure all children are accounted for while in our care. PLEASE BE DILIGENT ABOUT RECORDING THE TIMES YOUR CHILD ARRIVES AND LEAVES. Thank you!

Following an illness, a child may return to school once he/she has either been seen by a doctor or it has been determined that illness is not contagious. (A doctor’s clearance may be requested.) Please help us keep all of our children healthy by following these rules. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know. Thank you for your support!
Please remember that tuition is due the 1st business day of every month. Accounts not paid in full by 12:00pm the second business day of every month are subject to late fees. If tuition is not paid in full by the 7th business day of each month your child may not attend until the balance is paid in full.
