Our 2014-2015 School year is underway. In addition to our wonderful families previously enrolled for the summer, we have 13 new families and 19 new students.
Sunscreen is very important. Please remember that from now until fall, the sun’s rays are beating down on your child’s face. Apply sunscreen before arrival each day. Even spring sunshine will burn our fairer faces so begin this ritual now to help assure healthy skin in the future. Bad sunburns are also subject to infections. This children will be playing outdoors a great deal and we want to keep them as healthy as possible. Insect Repellent also needs to be considered. Last spring and summer was a bad time of the year for mosquitoes and other biting insects. We are certain this year will be no different, despite the cold winter.
The Belmont Weekday School south side (little) playground has gotten a new shade tree.

While the new tree is small in time it will grow tall and strong just like your children that we are privileged to care for.
What is in a “thank you”? Plenty! We at Belmont Weekday School strive to build up our young students in such a way that they are fully prepared for Kindergarten. Starting as young as 9 months of age we have a plan for them. We have a developmentally appropriate structured curriculum for children 9 months to Pre-K. How do we know it works? Because our students and their parents tell us it does. […]
