Welcome to July!

Summer Program

We have posted updated Summer Schedules in each classroom, please take a look. During the Summer, we will not have Weekly Lesson Plans, just Monthly Activity Programs - posted on the website and in each classroom. Summer Activities do not include those in the Infant Room. Also, no Show & Tell during the summer months.

If you have not sent in your Activity Fee of $25, please do so to better help us plan all of the great events we have lined up for our Funtime Fridays!

Splash Day

Little Kids (Dragonfly, Froggy, Flower) are every Wednesday.

Big Kids (Bumble Bees, Ladybugs, Grasshoppers) are every Thursday.

Please remember to have your children come to school already wearing their Bathing Suit with water shoes (crocs/water socks etc.) Bring a separate bag (shopping bag) packed with the following:

  • Change of clothes, including underwear.
  • Close-toed shoes, including socks.
  • A towel
  • A Swim Diaper - Please have your child arrive in a regular diaper/pull-up and we will change them into their Swim Diaper before the activity.

You do not need to apply sunscreen to your child on Splash Day as the porch area is covered. Teachers will apply sunscreen before going to the playground on that day. For all other days, please apply sunscreen to your child before bringing them in. Teachers will apply sunscreen/mosquito repellent in the afternoon, if needed.


We had a wonderful Graduation Ceremony on Friday, June 24th where we said goodbye and good luck to 17 Grasshoppers! Bumble Bee and Ladybug classrooms sang farewell songs and wished their older friends good luck. Our Grasshoppers performed songs about their journey at YCP and brought the house down with a choreographed routine to "Uptown Funk."

In all of the excitement, many parents did not get a chance to look at all of the amazing Graduation Bulletin Boards in the Grasshopper Room. We encourage everyone to stop by and take a look at all of the work and pictures of our graduates. Any parents who are interested in receiving a copy of the Grasshopper Slideshow, you may email us for a downloadable version.

We want to thank all of the teachers for all of their hard work - Ms. Patty, Ms. Caroline, Ms. Connie, Ms. Alina, and Ms. Usha. And we want to thank all of our wonderful parents for the touching gifts commemorating YCP's 20th year!
