Please take the time to read through all of the information we have provided, including the letter from our director. The children in our school are of the utmost importance to us.

Talking with children about Coronavirus Disease 2019: Messages for parents, school staff, and others working with children.
As public conversations around coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) increase, children may worry about themselves, their family, and friends getting ill with COVID-19. Parents, family members, school staff, and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear. CDC has created guidance to help adults have conversations with children about COVID-19 and ways they can avoid getting and spreading the disease.
We are booking NOW for our summer camps. You can book the entire month of June or July (or both) or you can book full weeks. We are not offering Fridays during the summer this year. Check out the flyer for more details.
Our Preschool and Kindergarten school year runs from August through May each year. Your child can join our class, if there are openings, any time during the school year and finish out the year with us. Our summer camps are in June and July.
We are so excited to share our new logo with you! We will be using it for all sorts of fun things, including our paperwork. New paperwork will be sent home to be filled out and returned. Over the summer, we will be ordering children's t-shirts for the 2020-2021 school year.
We have updated our website and are still working on a few things. Please know that if or hours differ from your contract, the contract is still valid and won't change UNLESS you choose to change it to one of the new options.
We are working on some new flyers and informational materials so we can fill up our empty spots!
At MTKCP, we enjoy our celebrations, parties and taking pictures! Here is a list of the ones fro the next few months and the details about each.
Our 100th Day of School is Wednesday, February 5. The children need to dress like they are 100! This can be super fun for them if you give them a hand in coming up with what they should “look” like. Start thinking about it early so you can gather what you need.
Our Valentine’s Day Party is Friday, February 14. We will take some fun Valentine pictures, feel free to dress them in fun clothes for the holiday. A list of names home the week before the party. Make sure everyone gets something from your child. It can be a simple card or it can be a candy or the like. I will not put limits on it. But I do want every child to give something to each of their friends so everyone know how much their friends care about them.
We will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on Monday, March 2. Feel free to dress as your favorite character or a simple shirt with that on it. We will enjoy a full day of Dr. Seuss stories and games. We will take some fun pictures on this day, too!
Wear GREEN on Tuesday, March 17 for St. Patrick’s Day. We will make a fun day out of it. There will be NO PINCHING of any kind for any reason. Even IF a child doesn’t wear green. We will also learn about the real story behind the holiday.
We will be taking Spring Pictures the same day as our Easter party on Monday, April 13th Please send your child dressed in an outfit that you would like them to have their Spring pictures taken in. You may send OTHER clothes to change into after the pictures, if need be. Our Easter Party will be the Monday AFTER Easter since we are closed the entire week before Easter. Please have your child bring a dozen filled plastic eggs and a basket to put the eggs. If you WANT to send any treats for the other children, you may.

Our Thanksgiving “Feast” day will be Monday, November 25.
Our menu will be chicken legs, mashed potatoes, peas & carrots, stuffing and rolls and some kind of baked dessert.
Our activities will include the children helping us make our lunch and desserts. This will be a beginning to our new “cooking class” with the children.
Our craft will be a turkey and the children will get to put people/things they are thankful for on the tail feathers. It can be displayed at your thanksgiving get-together, if you choose.
We are so thankful for each of the children in our school and for all of you, MTKCP our families. Thank you for choosing us to teach and care for your children.
