A Message From the Principal

Summer has officially begun! We have on our calendar some fun Camp activities for our Intermediate and Pre-K children as well as some great ideas for how our younger groups can get in on the fun. We are all looking forward to water days which will begin the week of June 8th and go every week through the end of July and first week of August. Your child’s classroom has been assigned a special day to participate so bring them ready for fun in the sun!

Please make sure you note our annual tuition rate change as well as the change in due date for tuition that will be taking place at the end of this month beginning June 29th. More details will be handed out in a letter as that date gets closer.

Other Monthly Details
Our calendar this month is full of fun events the children can participate in. We are going to have so much fun and learning going on! Please keep in mind that any activities listed on the calendar are above and beyond the curriculum that still takes place in our classrooms even in the summer months. We continue our learning process year round and are so excited with the progress we see in our children every day!

Fall Registration

Over 95% of our families will be remaining with us through our next school year and new families continue to sign up each week. This is a wonderful testament to the quality our families find in the program. If you know of anyone you would like to refer to our program so that they can receive the same great service you enjoy please make sure you tell them we have a special going on for families that register by July 3rd, and an Open House event for Back to School taking place on August 1st.


THANK YOU to those of you who have been trying very hard to make sure you are following these protocols:

  • Please make sure you are driving slowly through our parking lot while families are dropping off and picking up small children.
  • Please do not allow anyone to enter the building without their door code for the safety of all inside.
  • Please make sure you are not leaving children unattended in vehicles.
  • We do have children in the building with very severe peanut allergies. Please monitor items being brought onto school grounds for possible allergens.
  • Please wash hands when entering classrooms and have your children do so also.
  • Like us on Facebook to see all of the fun and exciting things happening at Enchanted Care!!

Tuition is due the weeks of June 8th and 22th . Please make sure that your account is current with the tuition cycle. There will be a $25 late payment fee assessed to all payments made after Wednesday of the tuition week. If you are interested in our automatic withdrawal program, please stop by the office to pick up an authorization form.

You must give us four weeks’ notice in writing prior to withdrawing your child from the school. If you wish to return after withdrawing your child, space is not guaranteed and you must pay a new registration fee and deposit applicable to new enrollees. You must also give us four weeks’ notice prior to reducing your child’s attendance schedule and two weeks’ notice prior to increasing your child’s attendance schedule.
