May 2021
As the beautiful weather approaches, we are getting ready to kick off May with our life cycle unit. We have LIVE caterpillars which will turn into butterflies by mid May and that we will release by the end of May.

During the month we will focus on books written by Eric Carle. Please see the calendar for the specific books we will be reading weekly and our specials. We will have a Very Hungry Picnic on May 27th where the children can try all the food that our famous caterpillar ate.

September Schedules
To prepare the fall rosters, please complete and return the form below regarding your child's schedule. Whether your child will be returning to TLC or not, I need all parents to complete this form. Thank you!
Pre-k graduation is for children entering into Kindergarten in September. Graduation will be held on Friday, June 25th at the Brookside location (1260 Meadowbrook Road).

The Merrick Avenue class will begin at 5:00pm and Brookside will begin at 6:00pm. We are limited in time and seats so the ceremonies will only be 45 minutes each.

Merrick Avenue students will have a six-seat limit and Brookside students will be limited to four seats.

Please apply sunscreen each morning. If you want us to re-apply, please complete the form below and return it with sunscreen for your child.

Updated forms are needed at the following dates: 3-6-9-12-18 months &
2-3-4-5 years.

You will be reminded as your child's birthday or medical expires.
Please use TLC's form every time.
Medications can be administered with proper doctor's permission and medication that matches. For example: we cannot administer Tylenol if your doctor specified Motrin. It is VERY specific.

All medication must be provided in its original packaging including the cup/syringe. This will ensure proper dispensing of the dose.

If you want medication to be given to your child to manage pain, or if your child has allergies and they require medication, please speak to an MAT trained teacher to check in your forms/medicines.
