Birthdays are celebrated during Together Time. We provide a birthday badge and a treat. Please do not bring anything for birthdays. If you are planning a party for your child, please send invitations directly.
Dress your child in clothes appropriate for play and messy activities. LABEL all clothing – jackets, sweaters, lunch box: anything that they might take off.
Everyday, bring your child’s tote bag and lunch (if staying). Summer children should also bring a towel and bathing suit to be left at school. Do send a picture of your child that we can put in his/her cubby to help with identification. Please leave toys and umbrellas at home.
Please call (925) 837-4044 if your child will not be at school. If your child is sick, please do not send him/her to school. See Health Policy for guidelines. Tuition credit or make-up days are not given for illnesses or vacation.
Tuition is due the 1st school day of each month. Summer camp tuition is due the 1st day of each session. There is a late fee of $10 for tuition received after the 10th of each month.
We are not set up to receive credit card payments, but we can receive payments via on-line bill pay through your bank.
We often have some spaces for drop-in lunch. Sign-up by calling the office. Morning children staying for lunch should be picked-up at 12:20 – 12:40 p.m. and afternoon children coming for lunch may be brought to CLC between 11:20 – 11:40 .a.m.
Pack your child’s lunch with healthy, reasonable amounts of food. We encourage children to eat their "growing foods” first, but won’t make them eat everything you send. We encourage socializing with each other and teachers, along with eating. Milk is provided by CLC. Please do not send sodas or candy. Uneaten food will be sent back home, if possible. We cannot microwave or refrigerate food. NO PEANUT BUTTER, PEANUTS, or obvious peanut products, please.
