Well, here we are heading into the final few weeks of summer, and boy what a fun-filled summer it was. We are very excited to begin a new school year with new families and returning ones, our teachers are hard at work preparing our classrooms for the new school year. We cannot wait to spend the year learning, growing, and creating beautiful memories. Thank you all for your participation in our Kids Helping Communities initiative this summer! Our school-age campers sprung into action and created posters, flyers, and a small video clip to distribute to families to promote our food drive. We were able to collect a total of 239 food items which will be donated to PBC Food Bank. We are grateful for the opportunity to watch our students serve others these past few weeks and appreciate the role you all had in this.
As we prepare for the new school year to look a little different this year, we must continue to follow the precautions that have been set in order to keep our children and staff safe. We have scheduled a Meet & Greet event via Zoom on August 19th, so parents and children have an opportunity to view the school, meet their new teacher, learn more about our curriculum and daily schedules, receive a classroom parent handbook & supply list and purchase uniform shirts online. Chesterbrook Academy is truly the place to be if you want your child prepared for Kindergarten. Our Links to Learning curriculum is meeting each child’s needs, and our teachers are implementing it beautifully!
With such uncertainty in the world during this pandemic, our children need normalcy now more than ever. If you have not scheduled a virtual tour of our facility, now is the time to do so. Space is limited as more families enroll during this time.

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 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 concerning 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 $25. 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. Failure to comply with tuition policies will result in a notice of dis-enrollment. 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.
