Little Dumplings Summer Camp (3 - 5 Years)

Dear Parents and Guardians of our Preschool Friends:

We know what comes after May: Summer!!  And we know what comes toward mid- June: Tuesday and Thursday field trips!! We can’t wait for summer to begin! And we know the children are counting the days!!

Our popular field trips will be coming back starting June 11th and they will run through August 22nd. Field trips take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If your child attends Little Dumplings Early Learning Center on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays, it is mandatory for them to attend field trips and be in attendance from 8:00 am- 5:00 pm on these days, with an exception of those field trips that will take longer (see attached Field Trip Contact Information for times). Your teacher will also notify you in advance. Breakfast will be served at 7:30 to ensure proper leave times (or earlier if we leave early that day).  Our field trip fees include transportation, lunch and admission.

So as not to overwhelm you, we have included a calendar and information.  Please read through the packet thoroughly. The packet has the information and calendar that you will need, as well as permission forms, waivers, summer schedule, and other pertinent information.

We are requiring all tuitions to be processed as an automated payment that is integrated into the ProCare Child Care Management system that allows you to pay your tuition and fees two ways: Recurring bank-to-bank transactions (EFT-ACH) and Credit Cards. Tuition Express or Cash are only the accepted form of payment. No Personal Checks. See office for Tuition Express Form. Tuition Express will automatically withdraw the full account balance on Monday mornings at 9:00am.  All credit card & debit card transactions will be charged a 5% processing fee (no matter if it is a recurring weekly payment or a onetime payment). Field Trip payments will be pulled automatically following the payment plan schedule - May 6, June 3, July 1 and August 5th.  The option to pay in full is also available.

Note: On the three times that your child will be attending Country Springs water park, ALL children will be provided a life jacket from the water park and MUST wear them at all times.

Before June, please make sure your child has in their cubby: two bottles of Aerosol Can of Sunscreen, one full set of extra clothes, swimming suit, towel, 1 pair of flip flops for swimming days and a pair of water shoes for outdoor water play on the blacktop. We would prefer girls to wear two piece swim suits to assist them in the restrooms with ease while wearing life jackets.All belongings should be labeled with his/her name on them, as sometimes children forget which items are theirs! Also we try to encourage your child to wear tennis shoes or other proper play shoes. Flip flops, crocs, jellies, and other forms of open-toed shoes are dangerous in an environment full of play and outdoor activities. Most importantly, come ready for fun and excitement.

Summer paperwork, field trip fees, and t-shirt fees are due by May 6th to secure your child's spot. These fees are non-refundable if your child does not attend on any given day.

Please contact me with any further questions or concerns. I am more than willing to help you in any way possible and look forward to a long-lasting relationship. Communication between families and the center is a two-way avenue and is critical to ensure we all have the best summer possible.
