The year is off to a great start so far and we’re enjoying spending the cooler season with you and your children. The weather has been nice and we like to spend more time outside. Our students will be participating in our SPARK physical fitness program, ensuring that they are able to work on their gross motor skills. We’re having a great time jumping, dancing and playing together.
February will be a fun month with Valentine’s Day celebrations in the classrooms. Some classrooms will be learning about heart health and some will be learning about love and friendship. We will be doing Spring Pictures February 12th – 14th. Check the lobby poster to see what day your child’s classroom will get pictures.
As always, we are here for you and your children. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Kim Hage, Principal
We are asking families to join us in supporting Australia by making a small monetary donation to help World Wildlife Federation, Australia care for and protect these treasured marsupials.
During the week of February 10th, you will see a fundraiser display in our front lobby with red silicone wristbands that read “I HELPED SAVE A KOALA” For every $5 donated you will receive a wrist band to show your support for this worthy cause! You are also welcome to pick up a fun koala fact sheet and coloring page to take home and enjoy with your child!

A Powerful Connection to a Lifetime of Learning
Your children experience the perfect balance 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.
Links 2 Home
You can expect to receive daily communication and pictures via email through our Links 2 Home program. And, we also encourage you to take a few moments each week to review your child’s classroom Links to Learning “Parent Board,” so you can “Link” to your child’s early education experiences. Posted are “Weekly Skills,” “Lesson Plan,” “Daily Schedule,” “Monthly Spanish” and “Learning Outcomes.”
The purpose of our sick policy is to reduce the spread of illness among our students and to encourage the full recuperation of sick children before they return to school. We depend on parents to assist us in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all of our children.
Children may be sent home if they have any symptoms. Also, a child must be free of all of these symptoms for at least 24 hours before he/she can return to school. These symptoms include:
- A Fever of 100 degrees or more
- Vomiting within the previous 24-hour period
- Diarrhea within the previous 24-hour period
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior and not himself/ herself
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!
TUITION: Tuition is due the 1st business day of every month. Accounts not paid in full by 12:00 pm the fifth business day of every month will automatically receive a late fee of $30. 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 its entirety. If you’d like to sign up for our ACH program, which automatically pulls your monthly tuition from the account of your choice the 1st business day of every month, just let us know, and we will help get you enrolled.
ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS FEES: If your child is signed up to attend a specific enrichment program, the monthly fee must be paid in full the first week of every month, or your child may not attend the second week.
