At Young Children’s World we believe children learn through their play and that they must practice playing to become good students in big school. We provide a variety of messy (sensory) play with paint, mud, water, shaving cream, and sand. Children must first learn to control their environments before they can control themselves. Children learn to read by being able to decode symbols. They do this by learning to organize their environment through sorting, classifying, and seriating objects. This is why we spend time in block, fine motor, and sensory play. Children cannot comprehend what they read unless they can see a story in their heads. To be able to see a story, they must be able to tell a story. We learn to tell and act out stories in dramatic play, circle time, and literacy circle. If children can act a story, they can comprehend what they read. The more children practice play, the deeper the level of learning. At YCW we believe that guided play is a child’s work. Inspired by Reggio Emillio, Young Children’s World’s primary objective is Kindergarten readiness through ample time spent in guided play.

Fees and Tips

YCW Fees


2019-2020


Special Day Fee:


Special Days are one thing that makes YCW so much for our kids.
Instead of taking the children on field trips, we will bring field-trips
experiences to our kids. Some of these activities become very expensive.
We ask that all students pay a $20 special day fee. The fee is due in November. 


It will cover Water Day, Halloween Festival, Thanksgiving Feast,
Safari Day, Santa, The Zoo Lady, Community Helpers, May Farms,
Western Day, Easter and special snacks.


We ask that parents donate candy for our Halloween Costume Parade,
bring Valentines, and bring a book for the student book exchange at Christmas.
Our Pre-K class has a special 50’s Day lunch that we will have parents bring
$4 for their lunch. 


Eat Out Days:


We will have an eat-out day on the first Thursday of the month. This is a
day where you don’t have to pack a lunch, as we will order lunch for the
kids-- pizza and Chick-fil-a. The charge for each eat-out day is $3.50.
You will need to pay the morning of the eat-out day, but we do offer a pay-ahead
option. At the beginning of the year, you can pay $30 for all nine eat out days
or $15 for just pizza or Chick-fil-a. 


Supply Fee:


$30 will be due at Meet the Teacher. This is a one time fee. 


A Few Helpful Tips


Lunch- Lunch will be served every day in the classrooms. We are sorry
but we do not provide a fridge and microwave. The teacher will help
open the children’s lunches but please make it easy for them to just
open the lunch box. Grapes and hot dogs must be cut.  


Nap Mats- All children are required to rest. Each classroom will have a
designated rest time, where the lights will be turned off, music or sound
machine on and teachers will help children get to sleep. Nursery B-E will
need nap mats. The purple 2’s, yellow 2’s, blue 3’s and red 3’s will need
nap mats. The Pre-K Green room will need a towel or a thin blanket.
You can find nap mats at Walmart, Target online, Amazon, Little Giant Kidz, etc


Personalization- Please make sure everything is labeled. This includes
pacifiers, cups, blankets, jackets, food items, etc. You can either write in
sharpie or order stickers with your child’s name on it from Inchworm or Etsy.
Diapers and Pull-ups will need to have the child's name written on it with a
sharpie.
