Collegeville Family Newsletter -  January 2019

Director's Corner 
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your warm show of appreciation to our staff through monetary and personal gifts.  We love working with your children and want to wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!!

December was a busy and fun-filled month for us.  We enjoyed a visit from Santa, and we also enjoyed a visit from Elsa (Frozen) who sang and read a story to the children.  She was fantastic!  We had our preschool holiday performance, Holiday movies & pajama day, holiday arts & crafts, and lots of yummy treats!  We collected lots of food and personal items for the Daily Bread Community Pantry in Collegeville.  Thank you for your kind and generous donations!

We will be talking about trucks and big machines in the month of January and discover how they help us in our daily lives as we work and play.  Animals in hibernation will be another interesting topic to learn about.  Theatre Tots will begin in January for the older groups and Jump Bunch and Music will continue.


-Please notify us if your child will be absent or late due to illness or other reasons.   We want to maintain a healthy environment for the children and staff and keep you informed as well.

-For safety purposes, we ask that you shut off your car/truck when picking up or dropping off your child.

-In keeping with our adult-child ratios, it is important that you follow the schedule that you submitted to us.  If there are any changes to your child’s schedule on a given day, please let us know so that we may staff accordingly.

-The kindergarten buses pick up and drop off around 8:40 AM; 12:00; 12:15 and again at 4:00.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE 2 SPOTS CLOSEST TO THE FENCE.  The buses have to be able to drive around to park in front of our door.


Kindergarten Open Houses 
Kindergarten Open House will be held on Wednesday, January 30th from 1-3PM.  Parents are invited to visit classrooms, meet teachers and learn about the PA certified Kindergarten program. See your Center Director for more information.
What's Happening at Our Center
Sadly, we have said good-bye to Miss Casey. We wish her all the best as she and her husband will welcome their first child in January.  We will have someone to take Miss Casey’s place and assist Miss Eman in the Butterfly room.  

I will be sending a survey home to Adventurer parents to get an idea of your plans for children entering kindergarten next fall.  It’s time to consider your options and what will work best for you and your child.  We offer a before/after kindergarten program or full day program for those children who miss the cut-off date of Sept. 1st.  Contact Jill with any questions.

From the Administrative Office
