Please Make A Note…
We will be closed December 25 and 26. In order to schedule teachers efficiently and to allow them a few days of well-deserved vacation, we need to know in advance the days you will need care. Please give us your schedule for Dec. 21 – 23 and Dec. 28 –Dec. 30. We will be working from unusual schedules, so for these dates only, we would appreciate 24 hours notice for changes in schedules.
Several parents have expressed their appreciation for the dedicated work of our teachers and have asked about giving Christmas gifts. We appreciate these kind thoughts and intentions but would ask that no gifts be given to individual teachers. If you wish to express your thanks in the form of a gift, we would prefer it be one which the teachers can share or one that the children can enjoy such as books, records, magic markers, shaving cream, play dough, tinker toys, push/pull toys or other similar toys.
Payment Plans – This is the beginning of the Winter Quarter; you may change your method of payment (weekly/monthly) at this time. You will not be allowed to change again without penalty until March 1. Please plan ahead and select the method which will suit you best. All changes must be made in writing, just drop a note in the payment box to let us know if you wish to change.
This may sound like a strange request, but do you have any old mismatched or outgrown socks or mittens that we could have? We will use them as a collection for sorting, matching and all sorts of learning activities.
We would also like to have a picture of your family for this month. We will be doing lots of hands-on things like counting each family, adding two families, and counting all the freckles (just kidding). A snapshot would be just great. If you send a studio portrait, we will copy it and return the original to you. What a great gift you give your children when you are interested in their education.
This month parent/teacher conferences are available. TTLC staff regularly communicates with parents on a number of topics and any concerns are addressed immediately so no conferences are required. However, any parent who has question or concerns they do not feel can be adequately addressed during the regular course of drop off and pick up can schedule a parent/teacher conference. Anyone wishing to schedule a conference should submit a request that includes days/times that are most convenient and the topics to be discussed so that the child’s primary teacher can come to the meeting prepared. Once arrangements have been made the director will notify the parent of the date and time of the conference.
