Teacher Vacations: Our teachers take well deserved time off year round but many vacations take place during the summer. You will notice some new and returning faces as we give the teachers the breaks they deserve. One of the great things about Halsey Schools is our team teaching atmosphere that allows the children to bond with our entire staff. So even when some of the teachers are hanging out at the beach there will always be other familiar faces at school and camp.

Family Vacations: Will you be taking a summer vacation? Please fill out the What Are Your Summer Plans at least two weeks before your vacation. This will allow us to plan accordingly for our daily activities and not worry about why your child is not at camp. Thank You.

Promotions: Children are promoted throughout the year based on their age and developmental level.  If your Infant, Toddler or Preschooler is being promoted for the new school year you will receive a certificate and notice July 15-31. The school year starts September 2, 2014.

Tuition Rates: Our tuition rates are adjusted annually. If you are not yet on the current rate schedule, the adjustment will take place on your June 20th statement for July billing. (Tuition for graduating Busy Bees will not change.) Click here or click on Tuition & FAQs above or download the parent handbook to see the current rates.
