Parent Surveys

This week, we sent home parent evaluations of our program. We MUST have 60% participation in the parent survey in order to meet Accreditation Goals. It is critical that the survey be filled out and returned. There is a box on the Parent Connections shelf by the ELC office to collect completed evaluations. Your comments and suggestions are very important to us; they serve as a valuable aid in future planning. Please return your evaluations by Monday, May 15th.

Summershine Registration

I am pleased to announce that the Early Learning Center will be holding “Camp Summershine.” Camp Summershine is a short summer program offered by the ELC. It will be held June 27-30 (Tuesday – Friday) from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. Summershine is open to current ELC children who are enrolled in the Toddler – four year old class this school year and ELC siblings and graduates ages 6 to 8 as of September 1, 2016. The registration fee for Summershine is $15 per child and the tuition is $75 per child.

Camp Summershine will involve many of the same activities the children participate in during the regular school year. The children attend Music, Sand & Water, Recess, Center Time, etc. However, the day will be longer enabling us to add some extra activities. The children bring their own lunches and drinks each day. Spaces are limited; there will be one class for each age level. Please notice that your child may not have their regular classroom teacher for Camp Summershine, but all staff members are familiar to the children.

Registration for Camp Summershine will begin Tuesday, March 21 at 9 A.M. We will follow the same registration procedures that we followed for our regular registration (doors will unlock at 9; only parents and regular caregivers may register children). Your child will be considered registered upon receipt of the completed attached form and a check for the non-refundable registration fee of $15. Registration forms and payments must be given directly to Annabelle Miles or Karen Wiles. Please do not leave forms or checks with a teacher. Enrollment is first-come, first-serve. Space is very limited, and registration forms will not be accepted before Tuesday, March 21.

Tuition of $75 must be paid in full by Friday, May 12. Anyone who has not fully paid for Summershine by Friday, May 12 will forfeit their space and registration fee. On Monday, May 15 we will begin to fill these spaces from the waiting list. After May 12, tuition is non-refundable. Refunds, of both fees, will only be made if a class must be canceled due to low enrollment. This will be determined on or before Monday, May 15.
