May 2021
Wow, May will be a busy month at the daycare and my home.  Four of the eight children here at the daycare have birthdays in May.  The kids will love having all those birthday parties and cake and ice cream.  Our youngest daughter, Jordan, graduates in May.  It is both an exciting and sad time for us as she does the last of so many activities, graduates, and moves onto the next phase in her life.  The last one of our five children to graduate is bittersweet.
Remember that the daycare will be closed on Thursday and Friday, May 27 and 28, as we get ready for her graduation and party.  These will be unpaid vacation days for me so you may adjust your tuition that week accordingly.  The daycare will also be closed on Monday, May 31, for the Memorial Day holiday, which is a paid holiday at the daycare.
Typically, if there is a tuition increase at the daycare, it goes into effect on June 1.  This year, I am not going to increase tuition so your tuition will remain at $220 for children under the age of 2 and $195 for children over the age of 2.
During the month of May, the daycare children will spend one week learning about the life cycle of plants, one week learning about birds, one week having fun with our annual Daycare Olympics, and one week learning about the use of masks in cultures around the world.
