Re-Registration - You will find Re-Registration forms in your child's Tote Bag by Monday, March 12th. 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. Further information will be included on the form. Forms are due by April 2nd and payment may be made via separate check or online.
Grasshopper Summer Registration - We will be again offering a Grasshopper-only Summer Program, broken into two sessions. Parents please look for further information to be placed in your child's tote by Monday, March 12th.
Immunization Audit - Our Health Department is scheduled to come and check our Immunization Records the week of March 12th. If your child has recently had or is about to have their 12-month, 18-month, or 4-year Annual check-up, please remember to bring in those immunization records by March 12th. We appreciate everyone's cooperation!
CSA Opportunity - We have the opportunity to set up YCP as a CSA drop-off site again this year. We are excited to be partnering again with Potomac Vegetable Farm. Please check out their farm, mission, and CSA here. The farm anticipates all of their shares will be gone by the end of April, so the sooner you can commit, the better. We must meet a minimum of 10 families to qualify as a drop-off site, though we hope to have more families than that sign up. If you are unsure how a CSA would work for your family, please feel free to contact us and we will put you in touch with some willing participants from last year's CSA. If you sign up by March 15th, you will receive a 5% Early Bird Discount.
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (or CSA) is a produce subscription program where eaters pay in advance and get a share of the produce grown on the farm throughout the season. Put another way, a CSA is a relationship between eaters, farmers and the land in which everyone shares the risks and rewards of farming. By directly supporting a local farm, your family will get lots of delicious, nutritious, and local vegetables in return.
March Monthly Activity Calendars and Lunch Menu are now posted online.
