September’s almost here — this is what you need to know

Hope you had a great summer at HOE. Lots of news to pass on.

1. A reminder that the daycare is CLOSED on Friday, August 30 for our annual reorganization day. Yes, that means Thursday is the last day of the summer in daycare for your child!

2. Cheques for September to December are due! Please drop them off in the daycare office. If you have any questions, contact Elif at

3. If your child is moving up to another room, he or she starts in that room as of Tuesday, Sept 3. Do you drop your child off early? Here’s a list of drop off locations for kids who arrive before 9 am (breakfast will be served!)
preschoolers — Room 104
Kindergarteners — Room 114 and 213
school agers — Room 109

4. We know you love ALL the teachers at HOE, but if you’re curious who your child will be spending their time with starting this fall, here are our room assignments:
104 (jr preschool) — Catherine and Palma
105 (sr preschool) — Mary and Maria
103 (jr school age) — Nichelle and Hannah
109 (sr school age) — Letizia and Helen
114 (Essex K) — Marianne and Tracy
213 (Hawthorne K) — Ruth and Caroline

5. Finally, there is limited space in some of the rooms at HOE. If you have friends or neighbours looking for childcare, have them contact Elif at or (416) 393-9291.

Happy final days of summer and see you in September!
