TK, KINDERGARTEN OR T&C- If you are still deciding where your child will go next year, please consult with his or her teacher early, on your child’s current developmental skills, and the best placement for them.

WE’RE SWITCHING – The children who played outside first each morning since September will start inside on Monday, February 4th, meeting inside for the first half of the morning and vice versa for the remainder of the school year! Children who will now start outdoors (classes of Joanne, Elizabeth, Reyna, Tana, Julie I and Julie H) may be walked into the yard by their parents or dropped off at the footsteps, where teachers will greet them on the path to the playground.  If you do walk your child in, you must sign in your child upstairs in the office before leaving your child.  The yard will be open at 8:50, just like in the classrooms.
