Spotlight on Stages August 2017


This summer has flown by so fast that I didn’t even get a chance to send out a Spotlight on Stagestowards the end of the last month!  The center has just been BUZZING with activities, water play and happy children!   Since it is now August, we are starting to prepare for the school year.  Please be on the lookout for file update information to come out this month.  The staff are pretty excited about getting the center ready for the school year next week.  It will be a time of cleaning, first aid and cpr training, decluttering, organizing and more!  We will be throwing in there a few surprises for when the center reopens! Take Care, Heather

Again, thanks to Laura Brown (Morgan’s mom) for providing us with a wonderful enrichment opportunity in all of our classrooms during the month of July.  

Before/After School August Payment

School starts on August 28, here are the pro-rated amounts for the school age programs. Before School:  $22.00 After School:  $31.00   Medical Statements Per licensing requirements, all children’s medical statements need to be completed EACH YEAR.  If your child had an annual doctor’s appointment, please make sure that you have gotten the doctor’s office to complete a Child’s Medical Form.  Copies of these forms are available in the lobby in the rack on the wall. For any child that has an expired medical statement they will not be able to return to their classroom until the updated medical statement is received.   Policy Changes starting September 1:   Late Pick-up Charges If a parent realizes that circumstances beyond their control are going to delay pick-up, a phone call is requested.  This is important, as many children fear they have been forgotten when parents do not arrive at their usual time.  Please remember that our staff is anxious to get home to their families on time as well.  Parents who leave their children before the scheduled start time and later than the stop time for the program will be billed as follows:   1st offense:                         Warning Letter 2nd offense:                        $8.00 per quarter of an hour or any part thereof 3rd offense:                        $10.00 per quarter of an hour or any part thereof   This policy is designed to deter early drop offs and late pickups.  After the third offense, the parent will be required to meet with the Administrator to discuss possible solutions.   Sibling Discount: When a family has more than one child enrolled in the Infant – Preschool programs, they are eligible for a sibling discount of $20.00 per family per month.   Please note:  Sibling discounts will not apply for families who have children in the School Age program or multiple children in the School Age programs.   Parking Lot When pulling into our lot (slowly and carefully) and parking in front of the ramp, please remember that there is ONLY spots for 4 cars to park.  These 4 spots are designated with parking blocks.  DO NOT park 5 or 6 wide in this area because this causes traffic flow for anyone who is parked in the upper back lot by the playground.  On several occasions, parents are parking 5 wide in front of the building and other parents aren’t able to get out of the upper lot.
