Collegeville Family Newsletter -  February 2019

Director's Corner 
January was a busy month as we discussed trucks and big machines that work for us every day and provide services for us all.  We enjoyed Jump Bunch, Milestones in Music, and Theatre Tots this month.  The children loved Tom McDonell’s performance “Pajama Day” as they celebrated by wearing their PJs! 

February’s High Reach theme is “Town & Country” and we will have fun exploring differences and similarities between city life and country life as we relate them to our own experiences.  We will also talk about dental health and nutrition.  Dental health professionals will visit and talk to the children about proper care of their teeth and how eating nutritious foods plays an important role in their overall health.

Valentine’s Day will be a fun time as children look forward to exchanging Valentines and classroom parties!

Please remember to send your child to school with appropriate clothing and shoes.  If possible, keep a spare pair of shoes here so your child can change if the first pair gets wet or muddy. Also, this is flu season, and we need to b mindful of washing hands after entering any classroom.  Keeping your child home with any symptoms of fever, cough, and/or constant runny nose is also necessary so we are not spreading the germs to others.  We are doing our best here to disinfect toys and equipment and washing hands throughout the day.

Thank you for your kind cooperation.
Stay well!
Valentine's Day Celebration
On Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14th, our center will have their classroom parties.  The children will enjoy a Valentine card exchange along with arts & crafts and other fun activities!  Check with your child’s teachers for more information and a class list.

Play & Learn’s annual Family Questionnaire is still available! Please take a minute to fill-out our survey. Your feedback is very important to us! CLICK HERE to complete the survey.
Re-enrollment forms will be distributed this month. They are due back Friday, March 8th! Be sure to return your re-enrollment form promptly to ensure a spot for your child. Please call the Enrollment Office with any questions: 215.643.4142. 

Progress Reports
Progress reports using the Work Sampling System for preschoolers will be distributed the week of Feb. 25th.  Please see your child’s teacher to sign and receive your copy.  Parent/teacher conferences are available in person or by phone and can be scheduled with the teacher.  There will be a sign-up sheet in the classroom where you can sign up for a conference with the teacher if you are interested.
Kindergarten Program 
Parents of children in the Adventurer and Pioneer classes were sent a 2019 Kindergarten survey so we can have an idea of those families interested in full day kindergarten (children who do not make the cut-off date for public kindergarten) or our kindergarten enrichment program (children who attend AM or PM kindergarten and are transported to Play & Learn for the other portion of the day), or those who will discontinue enrollment.  Please submit your survey to me as soon as possible indicating which program you are interested in for your child for fall 2019.  You are welcome to speak with Miss Stephanie or me if you have any questions about the program.
