FALL REGISTRATION

 All children who enrolled at Kids In Harmony before April 1, 2018 must re-register for school year 2018-2019.  The registration fee is $70.00 (15 months to 3 years old) or $100.00 (4 to 5 years old).  This fee covers the purchase of teaching materials and classroom supplies for the entire school year.


We hope everyone is staying for the fall.  However, if your family has other plans, please let us know accordingly, as we have many families waiting to get registered for the coming school year.  Kindly inform us by August 10th, but you have until August 17th to cover registration fee.


It is going to be another great year and we hope your family will be with us to celebrate our children’s learning.

JELLYBEAN CLASS

We finished our literature quarter with the following books: “The Napping House” and “Dear Zoo”.  Our terrific two’s focused on so many animal movements and learned identifying different animals that are found in the zoo. Apparently, KOALA BEARS was one of our favorites.


Let us not forget our June “End of the Year” Show at the Irish American Heritage!  We hope that you enjoyed the children’s dance moves.  They practiced long and hard to come up with a fun show that everyone truly admired and complemented. Till next year…..


In July as we continue through with our Summer Camp themes and activities, we will be exploring lots of material in our sensory table – water, sand, shaving cream and more; making blowfish using paper plates and toothpicks; reading books about summer, sun and 4th of July.  Many more inschool activities are lined up and ready to be implemented in class, one week at a time. So be sure to always check your monthly calendar ahead of time!

SUMMER CAMP SAFETY REMINDERS



While we enjoy the warm weather summer has to offer, let us not forget that open-toe shoes are not allowed in school, as per DCFS regulation.  Sandals are comfortable but could also be tripping hazard, as children run around during playtime.  You may leave a pair of gym shoes in your child’s cubby for him/her to change into, if your child insists on wearing sandals to school.  Just remember to label every item that you bring in to avoid mix-ups or lost belongings.


- We provide the children with sunblock lotion during outdoor play.  You do not have to bring one from home.  However, if you prefer to provide your own due to skin allergies, you have to sign the appropriate form before we can apply it to your child.  Please ask your child’s teacher for the form. 


- The Jellybean and Rainbow Class children should always wear their KIH “Blue” shirt on field trip days.  It is safer and easier to keep an eye on our children when they are wearing the same color shirts.  Also, we still have few trips needing parent chaperones.  If you are interested, please speak with your child’s teachers and we will coordinate with you. Thank you in advance for your help.
