Welcome To Salida Early Childhood Center

January 2023 

Happy New year! We are so glad to see all the children after break!  It is the second semester already! There are all kinds of fun activities coming up in the next few months.  Just a few are: the Creede Theater Company will perform here, there will be guest readers, Happy dental visits, and much more.  We will be sending out our annual parent satisfaction survey.  Please watch for it and let us know how we might improve and what we are doing well.  We are always trying to do better!  You have probably heard some news about the State Universal Preschool Program.  There will be more information coming in the next month.  A couple of things you need to know about our school are: 

1.  We will not be expanding - We have trouble staying fully staffed now, and still need staff in our kitchen.  Our facilities and staff can not accommodate any more students than we already have. 

2.  We will be taking some Universal Preschool Funding from the state and it will be part of our funding sources that we already have. Watch for information for your returning student.  Sheri and Heather will be sending out information on what you will need to do to return next year. 

3. New students that wish to attend our Center will still have to fill out our application and will be prioritized based on our enrollment criteria.  I know that there will be a lot of questions and it is all changing daily.  We will keep you informed as we learn  more.   

The last thing I want to remind you is to let the office know if your phone number, address or email changes.  It is so important for us to be able to communicate with you!  

Thank you, and welcome to 2023!
