Happy New Year!
While the majority of Americans are making resolutions, parents of pre-schoolers are making plans!January is registration month at Jackand Jill! Believe it or not
the time has come to choose a program for your child for the
2020-2021 academic year! It can be a daunting task to choose the
“right” 4 year old class for your child.
Please feel free to chat with your child’s teacher and
seek their input in the decision. I will also be hosting a
registration overview on Wednesday January 15th at 9:00 and also
at 6:00 PM to explain the differences between our 4 year old programs.
This evening is for current parents only please. Please be on
the lookout for a sign up genius to RSVP for these overviews.
Returning families(current children and their incoming siblings) can return
completed registration forms beginning Thursday, January 16th with a
$75.00 registration fee. Please keep in mind that registrations are processed
on a first come, first served basis.
Registration opens to the public on Saturday, January 25, 2020.
Please take a few moments to spread the word and let people know what you
like about our program! I am available for personal tours
for your friends, families and acquaintances when it suits their schedule.
It is not uncommon for me to provide weekend, and evening tours of the program. Our website has current information, but it is imperative to get people in to visit us!
