Welcome to October!

Back to School Night - Thank you to all families who participated! If you were not able to attend, please ask your child’s teacher to make sure you receive a Classroom Information packet. Make sure to return the Questionnaire, Updated Contact and Medical Authorization forms by this week. Once we have all of the Updated Contact sheets, we will be able to send out Parent Contact Lists to everyone. Any additional questions can be addressed at the Parent Teacher Conferences scheduled at the end of this month.

Halloween - We are very excited for the first Holiday of the Season! A few reminders:

  • Please bring a Small/Medium Pumpkin for your child to decorate no later than Monday, October 22nd.

  • Halloween Party (kids-only) will be on Wednesday, October 31st. Little Kids (including Infants) in the morning and Big Kids in the afternoon.

  • Please bring your child's costume in a separate bag - teachers will change your child into their costume just before the party.

  • We welcome Snack Donations for the parties - please look for Snack Sign-Up Sheets, remember no candy, nuts, or juices are allowed.

  • YCP will close promptly at 5pm on Wednesday, October 31st.

Federal Holiday Policy - YCP will remain open on a select number of Federal Holidays (like the upcoming Columbus Day Holiday) so that we may close for an equal amount of days over the Winter Holiday Break. Full Tuition applies during the Winter Break. And a reminder that if an Emergency Closing (like snow) falls on a Federal Holiday where YCP is open, all Closings/Late Procedures will be at the discretion of the Director.

All Holidays can be found on our Website Calendar or on our School Calendar.

Extra Clothes - Please begin to switch out your child's extra clothes to Cold Weather items - pants, long-sleeve shirts, socks, etc. Please make sure your child has a light jacket/sweatshirt to wear at the playground - our playground is shaded and can be a bit cooler during Morning Recess.
