May Notes of Interest
As many of you may remember, we started our self study towards gaining our accreditation through the National Accreditation Commission (NAC) almost 2 years ago. The time has finally come to submit our official application! We are so excited to be in the final stages of this process. Once our paperwork is submitted, we will be notified of a two week time period when the NAC evaluators will come to evaluate our center. After the evaluation process is complete it may take up to 4 months before we hear what the final decision is. We will keep you updated on the time frame as well as the end results.
Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences are continuing through the first half of May. If you have not yet had a chance to sign up, please talk to your child's teacher about doing so.

Miss Gail has posted a sign at the front desk showing the time slot that has been chosen for your child's group. Please mark if your child will or will not attend the show. Just a reminder, the show counts as the last class for May.
After receiving feedback in our family surveys, Katie's Kids re-evaluated our morning food options. In looking to create positive changes AND
still meeting the Meal Plan requirements for DCFS. W
e are changing the title of "Breakfast" to
"AM Snack." What does this mean for you and your family? Really...not much! We will continue to serve the same/similar food options at our same meal times. However, this brings about a positive change by allowing us to incorporate more variety into the morning menu such as protein options, which aligns with many of the desires expressed in the parent survey.
