2020!!! How did that happen?! I read something the other day that said the year 2000 was twenty years ago, which is funny, because so was 1980. It made me laugh because it really does feel that way! Time seems to be escaping us faster and faster these days and I need it to SLOW DOWN. It's is unbelievable to me that we are already starting enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. The first few months of this school year have flown by. I'm in a three year old classroom this year, for the first time in YEARS, and I feel like we just got started! How can it be halfway over?!! I definitely will not be ready to say goodbye to my sweet class in five short months. But, regardless of how we feel, time is going to keep on moving on. So, alas, we must prepare.
If your family previously attended Coastal Day School for an entire academic year and would like to return (yay! so exciting!!), we will have a special enrollment time for your family starting January 21, 2020. Just stop by any day that week (except Monday-we are closed) between 10am and noon to drop off paperwork and the $150 new student fee. Here is a link to our handbook which includes all the paperwork we need turned in.
If you are a new family wishing to enroll here at CDS for the 2020-2021 school year, which starts September 2020, we will open enrollment on Monday, February 3, 2020. We will post a link here on our blog at 8am and will share the post on our Facebook page as well. All submissions will be time stamped and spaces will be given in the order they are received. We are doing it a little different this year to help our families with multiple children. The form will simply ask for one parent's name and phone number. We will begin calling families that morning to gather information about your children and what number of days you are interested in. Filling out the form online does not guarantee a space in our program. All spaces are first come, first serve and we will go in the order the submissions came in. Any child that does not receive a space in our program will be placed on our waiting list. Our hope is to get in touch with everyone by the end of the week, but this route will be more time consuming on our end, so please be patient with us as we tackle the list. If you miss the call from us, please call us back as soon as possible. We will have many names to get through and will need to move on to the next person quickly.
If you are new to our program, and would like to meet our staff and see our facility, we will be holding an Open House on Wednesday, January 15th from 6:30pm until 7:30pm. Children are welcome to attend :) We are looking forward to meeting all of you and answering any questions you may have!
We are so thankful to be planning another school year! What an honor it is to become part of so many families here in Leland as we partner together to teach and love our sweet students. We really do have the most amazing families and staff that encourages, supports, and loves us so well. Looking forward to year 14 and all the fun we will get to have!!
