From time-to-time you may see a sign up sheet for days when we anticipate particularly low attendance. On holidays that we do not observe or days before or after a holiday, we may ask that you sign up your child for care on those days. This allows us to staff enough teachers, yet offer days off to those teachers who work tirelessly throughout the year.


HOLIDAY PROGRAMS AND EVENTS10322707_670802339653632_3831677422931810091_n

Each year we have a number of holiday or seasonal events for parents and extended family members. These events may include: Our “Winter Holiday Christmas” Program, Mother’s Day Tea, Color Run for Fun, Halloween Party, Thanksgiving Feast and Annual Art Gallery and Live Auction, our Summer Luau and occasional “Family Nights” throughout the year.



We recognize and honor the diversity of families. We welcome your unique family into ours!

These events will be varied in their format and the level of participation requested.

We may occasionally have a Parent Participation Work Party to spruce up the school property and help keep tuition costs affordable.

Each year, the complex community of Caring Connection is considered when planning.

We look forward to whatever participation level suits you and your family.


FIELD TRIPS & VISITORS10571534_10204823855021079_2022330159_o

Several times each year, we may plan a field trip with our preschool children. We encourage and need parent involvement as drivers and/or chaperones. These excursions may include outings such as: the pumpkin patch, the railroad museum, a local grocery store, community library, postal office or the zoo. Alternatively we may ask special visitors to come in to visit. It’s very important and exciting to see a firefighter and try on his full gear or meet the canine officers from the police force. These experiences expand our learning and enjoyment into the real world.



We are fortunate to have wonderful community relations with the following professionals: the fire department, the police station, dentists, medical professionals, multi-cultural dancers, wild animal tenders and event local media; the Sacramento Bee, Channel 31 and KCRA Channel 3. In early 2011 Owner/Director Julie Jenkins Sathe was featured on KCRA 3’s segment for parents who are dealing with difficult behaviors, using our Enlightened Discipline philosophy.

Parents are welcome to join us, as possible for these visitors. We make every attempt to post a message so that they can talk to their child about the day’s event. We also will take and display photos from these special events. Check our Facebook page for regular photo updates.
