This is my favorite time of year! Soon the weather will be cooling off and we will enjoy lots of time outside. The teachers had some great training and team-building during Staff Development Week. I am so proud of everyone for their commitment to quality early childhood education. The children returned to school looking like they grew and showing off some newly acquired skills… We are ready for a great school year!
I am looking forward to the many family events we have planned during the upcoming months. It is a great opportunity to establish the important home-school connection and socialize with families & teachers. Take a look at the calendar and make a note for yourself to allow you to attend.
One of the things that we will be working on this year is our application into NAEYC candidacy and in 2019 becoming NAEYC accredited. This is a goal of the Center and will require all of us working together as a community. Watch for opportunities to be involved in this important
Our building status update: I am thrilled to announce that we have been selected as the tenant at 4200 Wisconsin Avenue (yay!). The lease is being drafted and reviewed. We will hopefully be signing it in the near future. Then the fun begins with design, permitting, construction, advertising, etc. We anticipate actually relocating in late spring/early summer of 2019. This is a huge physical, programmatic and financial undertaking for the center, but I am so excited about the possibilities it holds for the center moving forward and as we near our 40 year anniversary of providing a quality child care program serving the NW DC community.
My door is always open for you, so feel free to stop in if you have a suggestion,concern or just to say Hi. 🙂
