From the Principal’s Desk…
Happy New Year to all of our Chesterbrook family and friends! We look forward to a year filled with exploration, creating memories and providing the perfect balance of learning and play. More importantly, we look forward to continuing to open our doors to our parents for volunteer opportunities and grow children into lifelong learners that are prepared for Kindergarten and the world. This month our school will start to accept new enrollments for summer, fall and the new academic school year. If your child will turn 4 by September 1st., this is a good time to log into the family portal @ www.elcbroward.org and register for your VPK certificate of eligibility. I invite you to join us for Open House on Saturday, January 25th. from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. to tour our school, learn more about our program, meet our fantastic teachers, and learn more about how we provide the perfect balance of learning and play.

Ms. Yoy Kure, Assistant Principal

FROM THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT:
My vision for my school, my enrolled children and families and teachers is to experience early childhood education on an infinite level of opportunities. I want every teacher to feel fully part of the process and I want them to introduce their children not only to our accreditation enriched curriculum but the things that their most passionate about. For my currently enrolled families, I want them to feel connected. Fully connected to their child’s school through consistent communication, a variety of activities and events to build their relationship with their child, the school community and teachers. For the children that parents entrust us with, I want them to explore and build the joy of learning. I want them to laugh…out loud and feel love, nurture and care. I want to build their self esteem, give them confidence that all things are possible if you believe and to expose them to so many different concepts, skills and languages that sparks their interest and opens a new pathway to developing who they are as a student, a citizen of the world and a human being. I want them to be kind, disciplined and free-spirited and I want them to make connections every day to the outside world. I want them to be themselves and know that being your authentic self makes you amazing!
