The Westminster Nursery School Times

The Nursery School staff wishes each of you a Happy New Year! Brrr…..It’s Cold Outside In the event of the parking lot being slippery near the front doors, I will be opening the doors closest to the parking lot exit. This area seems to remain ice free. Inclement Weather School Closings and Delays As a reminder, Westminster Nursery School follows the Berkeley Heights Public Schools when dealing with inclement weather closings and delays. Should the Berkeley Heights Public Schools close, Nursery School will be closed. Should the Berkeley Heights Public Schools have a delayed opening; Nursery School will have a delayed opening. For Nursery School, a delayed opening means morning sessions will run from 10:00 AM – 12:00 noon, Extended Day from 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m. and afternoon K-E sessions will run from 12:45 PM – 2:45 PM with children eating lunch before their arrival. The Next Step for 2018/2019 School Year Registration You will be notified of your child’s class placement in February. At that time a $250 deposit will be required to hold your spot. Extended Day/Stay and Play Invoices for November and December will be distributed in the next two weeks. Please check for them in your email. Planetarium Field Trip for 4’s During the month of January, our younger classes will be talking about the day/night sky and our 4’s classes will be talking about the Solar System. The 4’s will enhance this unit with a field trip to the Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium. All 4’s classes are scheduled to go to the planetarium on Wednesday, January 10th. The program the children will see has proven to be very educational (and entertaining) for the children. Permission sheets will be posted on the classroom door. There will be a limit on the number of parents who are able to accompany the classes, as we have a limit on the number of people we can send to the planetarium. Conferences Parent Teacher Conferences will be held in January. School is not in session during your class conference. The playroom will be open (with supervision by a Nursery School staff member).
