Welcome Back Newsletter
Welcome to Gulfstream Early Learning Center. We are thrilled to begin the 2019-20 school year by adding infant and toddler Early Head Start classes. We will continue to serve three and four year old Head Start classes as well as 4 year old VPK classes at Gulfstream. Additionally, we are excited to offer a FREE extended day program for up to 40 of our 3 & 4 year old preK students in conjunction with Memorial Healthcare System through a grant with United Way.
School started on Wednesday, August 14.
Preschool children (Head Start and VPK) should arrive no later than 7:55 am. Early Head Start children should arrive by 7:45 am.
· All children receive free breakfast.
· VPK students must apply and be approved to receive free or reduced price lunch.
· We do not require school uniforms, but children should be comfortable to play inside or outside.
· Children need tennis shoes (not sandals) for safety reasons.
· We like for our students to have REGULAR SIZED BACK PACKS (no rolling wheels).
· Your child will need a small blanket (or beach towel) to cover with during nap time.
· And, a change of clothes in a plastic bag inside the book bag in the event of a spill or accident.
We recommend that you invest in a permanent marker and mark all items on the inside tag with your child’s name. This helps us to get any/all misplaced items back to their rightful owner.
We look forward to welcoming your child, you, and your family into Gulfstream Early Learning Center!
