Air Quality Today

Good morning families,

This morning we were doing research on air quality, due to the Air Quality Alert in the Madison area. In our handbook we have stated that “All children will stay in side if the air quality is deemed unfit…at the or age level or above.” I checked in with the owners and licensing to see if there are actual licensing rules in place that we should keep the children inside. Our licensor let us know that it is at our discretion. Since it is suppose to be such a nice day we have decided to allow the children and teachers be outside as long as they see fit. We asked the teachers to make sure to monitor the children for any coughing and to also monitor themselves on how they are feeling.

If anyone has any concerns or questions or would like us to limit the amount of time their child is outside today, please let me know.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,


Teacher Appreciation Photos

Good morning,

I just wanted to thank all of you that contributed and did you own things to celebrate the teachers this week and always. Steenbock’s on Orchard catered breakfast on Tuesday and a lunch on Thursday, both were delicious and we would highly recommend to visit them.

It was a fun week celebrated with food and kind words.

Traditional Center Contracts – Updates

Good morning families,

I will be sending home the 2023/2024 contracts with your children today. Before sending those out I wanted to note a couple changes that were made, they will also be bolded in the contract.

We will be adding a spring break in the 2024 school year (March 25-29) and will be following the MMSD spring break going forward.

This past semester we piloted a couple early release days, these days are to help our staff work with their co-teacher on classroom responsibilities and for us to do our staff meetings before 5:30pm. My goal when planning early release dates is to very rarely have them in the same month that we are already closed for parent/teacher conferences or a holiday.

As you know childcare, like many other industries, is facing a staffing crisis and LCLA has been working hard to make sure we continue to be there for your children. We have made the above changes to help with staff burn-out. I am always looking for more ways, both practical and fun, to help with staff morale. Teacher Appreciation Week is the second week in May and I will start planning ideas for that, if any of you have fun ideas please feel free to email me those.

I hope you and your families have a wonderful week.
