Get Ready for Summer!
We are so excited to be offering our FIFTH year of summer art camp this year! In this news update, we want to update you on our summer camp policies and find out what else is happening at YBS!
Summer Camp 2021 Updates!
Please read the following carefully and let us know if you have any questions!
~ We are virtually full all weeks except Week 10, which is the week public schools are going back, but many private schools are still off. If you are interested in this week, registration is online!
~ We are notifying families on the wait list via email if there is a spot in the week and time they wanted. Due to high demand, we ask that you notify us within 24 hours if you want the spot. If we do not hear from you, we will move on to the next person on the list.
~ Please keep in mind that if your summer camp plans have changed, you must notify us by May 15 to receive a FULL refund. If you do need to cancel, please email us with your information: Your name, child's name, week of camp registered for, AM or PM, and the method of payment for a prompt refund.
~ No credit for missed days or refunds will be given after June 1 unless it is a Covid-19 related issue.
~ We will still be requiring wearing masks for both children and adults during camp hours. We will still be doing daily health checks at drop-off time. Adults are asked to wait at the door for drop-off and pick-up times.
~ Your child may bring a water bottle for camp. No food will be allowed unless there is a special medical need.
~ Make sure you send your child dressed for mess every day!
Fall Classes at YBS
We are already getting questions about our Fall line-up of classes! In general, the schedule for afterschool classes during the week is staying with the same line-up: Mixed Media on Mondays for 2nd-5th grade, Art Club on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for 2nd through 5th grade and Mini-Art Club on Thursdays or Fridays for PreK-4 through 1st grade.
We will be contacting currently enrolled families in July to determine if you want to come back again and any day changes you may need to make. Current families please remember your child may be ready to "age-up" to a more advanced class, and that may mean coming on a different day.
For morning classes for toddlers and preschoolers, we are going to be adding a drop-off Mom's Morning Out class for potty trained kids age 3 and up on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Ms. Pamela, and Ms. Florie will continue Art in the Park on Monday mornings.
An official preview will be announced and go up in July and open registration will begin in August!
Studio Parties Are Back!
We are booking only one birthday party per weekend during the summer months and are already full for June! If you are interested in an art party this summer, please get in touch with us soon!
Interior Design with Families in Mind with Ms. Florie
I am adding a bit more to my resume with the opening of my new interior decorating and design service, Salt Flower Studio! Yellow Bird Studio is still near and dear to my heart because I love what I do with the children and families so much, but I have been planning this for several years now and feel the time is right to help families with children create beautifully joyful homes. Of course, children's spaces will always be my favorite to design and decorate, but I can help you with other decorating dilemmas too! If you are someone who wants to refresh or re-do your home so that it can be both beautiful AND kid friendly, please visit my website, www.SaltFlowerStudio.com or contact me through the Yellow Bird Studio website.
