It may be hard to believe, but Summer is almost here. Where did the year go? As we transition into our Summer program we say Goodbye until the Fall to teachers, Laurie Kieszek & Kerry Kmetz, who both have the Summer off to spend time with their families. 

Much thought goes into the planning for Summer. Taking into consideration the children, their individual needs; the Teachers and their schedules and vacations; and as always the “Big” picture of Young World; consistently providing a nurturing, safe, appropriate environment in which to play and learn.

Transition to our Summer Program will begin Monday, June 18th for Early Education and Care classes, and on Monday, June 25th for the Kindergarten and School Age groups. As in past years, some children will be taking the summer off, new children will be starting at Young World, and some children will be changing classrooms (new class lists will be posted by Monday, June 18th). As we prepare for the transition to Summer, Teachers will begin talking about the upcoming changes and addressing the transitions that the children will be experiencing. Children leaving the Center are encouraged to bring in a special snack to celebrate the occasion. Children moving to a new classroom will visit their new teachers and room prior to the start of the Summer Program.

Parents are also encouraged to visit their child’s new classroom during this process to familiarize themselves with the Sign-In Area, cubbies, Parent Information Area, etc.  Parents will be kept informed of the changes by Newsletters and Daily Notes.

Teachers will be taking vacations or days off throughout the Summer so staff schedules may change to accommodate enrollment. We will keep you informed of when teachers will be on vacation.

As always, please be assured we will make these changes and transitions as smooth as possible.

Just a Few Brief Reminders:

  • A two-week notice is required for any vacation request. Vacation request forms are located above the main tuition box.

  • Please remember that SNEAKERS are a must at Young World & we ask that you please send in a seasonal change of clothes, a sun hat, sun block, insect repellent & a water bottle all clearly labeled with your child’s name. Please remember to include an ice pack, a beverage and any necessary utensils daily in your child’s lunch box.

  • Young World will be CLOSED on Wednesday, July 4th in honor of Independence Day.

Happy Summer to All!
