We would like to welcome all the new families who joined our school community in January! We appreciate that you have chosen Chesterbrook Academy for your child’s early education.
Can’t believe I am saying this Pre-K Parents, but we are in the beginning stages of planning for our 2021 Pre-Kindergarten graduation ceremony. This year’s graduation will be on Tuesday, June 8th. We are still finalizing our plans and we hope to be able to offer an in person graduation but if restrictions are still lifted then we will have another zoom graduation like last year.
A special thank you to our Intermediate Parents who have registered to reserve your child’s space for the 2021/2022 VPK program. We are thrilled your children will continue to grow with us. This year we’ve had an overwhelming response from new families who want to join our school for VPK this fall. Word on the street is that Chesterbrook Academy is the place to be for VPK! Please do not delay if you have not secured your child’s enrollment. We want all of our current students to register first. We have already started enrolling outside families and space is filling up fast.
Have a sweet month,
Jami Melnick, Principal
Laura Ward, Assistant Principal
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 second business day of every month will automatically receive a late fee of $30. If tuition is not paid in full by the 5th 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.
ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS FEES: Enrichments are temporarily canceled.
CATERED LUNCH PROGRAM: ADVANCE ORDERING REQUIRED Monthly lunch order forms are available two weeks before each new month. Please be sure to turn your lunch order in with payment no later than the posted deadline. Late orders may not be honored. Pizza Friday orders for the entire month must also be turned in by the deadline. Ordering lunch is an optional service. You may also send lunch from home.
