"...for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought.  If you seek Him, He will be found by you..." 
~I Chronicles 28:9~
Dear Parents,

As you may have seen or heard, our children have been enjoying the sunshine and our new bicycles out on our playground!  Our infants are also enjoying their new, inside play structure area!  Giving quality care is very important to us, and we will strive to give your children the very best we can!

This week, our KR to Kindergarten visit was a success!  The children had a great time seeing a little of what they will experience next year in their Kindergarten classrooms.  On Tuesday, February 5th, it will be your turn!  Come fly with us at our KR to Kindergarten Open House.  We will be meeting at 5:00 p.m. in classroom EL-9.  If you don't know where that is, don't worry,  we will have flight attendants available to guide you!  I highly encourage you all to come.  At the Open House, you will get a good sense of what Kindergarten will be like for your child(ren) and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.  See you there!

Blessings,

Stephanie Yamato
ECE Director

Falcon Referral Program

VCS is offering a tuition discount for the 2019-2020 school year - The Falcon Referral Discount!  You can earn $1000 credit towards your tuition for the 2019-2020 school year by referring a new family.

How does it work?

Refer a new family to VCS.  When the new family enrolls for the 2019-2020 school year, the referring family (that's you!) and the new family will each receive $1000 credit for the 2019 -2020 school year, towards their tuition.  You can refer up to five (5) families in one school year.  The $1000 credit is off your total tuition, not per child.  

For more details or to refer a friend to visit VCS, contact Maylene Ripley, Director or Enrollment at 707-446-1776, ext. 5300.
