Welcome to March

Staff Changes - Please join us in welcoming Ms. Pavlina (Ms. Paula to the children) in the Flower Room. She will be joining Ms. Anyolina in helping your children learn potty, ABC's, and begin the transition to the Big Kids House this summer. Ms. Asmara has moved back to the Infant/Toddler Room and is thrilled to be helping the other Infant Room teachers through the end of the Summer. Ms. Suzy will become our Floating Teacher and will assist in all of the Little Kids classrooms.

Re-Registration - You will find Re-Registration forms in your child's Tote Bag by the end of this week.  If you would like to continue at YCP for the upcoming Academic year, please indicate on the form. All re-registration forms must be accompanied by the fee to guarantee your child's spot. Those who will be leaving us, must include a date as to your child's last day - we ask you to put down a specific day with the understanding that this might shift a day or two. It's more important to know if your child will be leaving before or after the Summer Session. Further information will be included on the form. Forms are due by April 1st and payment may be made via separate check or online.

Winter Clothes Donations - With the end of the season approaching, we are looking to replenish our stock of extra winter gear. These items are used when your child does not have the proper attire to go outside in the cold weather. As you go through your child's closets and look to give away those items that do not fit, we would appreciate the following:

  • Winter Coats
  • Fall/Light Coats
  • Gloves & Mittens
  • Winter Hats
  • Pants
  • Sweatshirts/Hoodies
  • Long-Sleeve Shirts

Dramatic Play Donations - We are always looking for dress-up items for all classrooms to use in their Dramatic Play areas. Again, as you go through your children's closets and toy chests and look to give away items that no longer fit or are no longer used, please consider donating:

  • Tutus
  • Capes & Masks
  • Hats
  • Aprons & Vests
  • Children's Tea Sets and Cooking Items
  • No weapons, wands, or sharp objects

Please make sure all donated items are clean and in overall good condition - please give all donations to Ms. Zinat or Ms. Pashi

Scholastic Books - You may go online and order books directly through the Scholastic Website. For this month, all orders need to be submitted by Friday, March 11th. All school orders are processed on the 2nd Friday of the Month. Remember that all parent orders through Scholastic help our Center to purchase new books.

Easter Egg Roll - Please make sure to bring in three (3) hard-boiled eggs by Wednesday, March 23rd. Children will be decorating eggs on Thursday and the Egg Hunt will be on Friday, March 25th. Please note, that all Holidays celebrated are secular in nature (we do not observe the religious aspects of any marked Holidays.)


Show & Tell is now listed in the Calendar portion of the website - click on the individual day to see what items your child needs to bring in.
