Happy New Year and Welcome 2021


Hope everyone is doing well. Thank you again for trusting us with your children. I want to thank you for following the proper protocol and keeping the children and staff safe. This is our top priority and your support has enabled us to continue providing quality care to everyone.


Parent Conferences:

All parents will receive their child’s progress report the week of January 11. If you would like to schedule a zoom with the teachers, please let them know what is convenient for you and they will set it up. We hoped that circumstances would have been different by this time and we would have been able to meet in person, but due to the pandemic, we had to make an adjustment for these conferences.


Professional Development – January 14:

The NSJCC Early Learning Center will close at 1:00 on Thursday January 14 for a Professional Development afternoon with the staff. The staff will be meeting with Jeanine Fitzgerald, Certified Human Behavior Consultant, Author and Founder of the Fitzgerald Institute. The topic for discussion, Helping Children Cope.


COVID Update:

The NSJCC is continuing to follow all the safety precautions set up by the Department of Early Education and Care. We are continually monitoring any updates to comply with the Regulations. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
