Shhhhh. Surprise Readers: We have been having a lot of fun with our parents visiting as surprise readers. If you would like to participate, please arrange with your child’s teachers or Sign up here


Family Vacations: Will you be taking a summer vacation? Please message us in brightwheel. And we will plan accordingly for our daily activities and not worry about why your child is not at camp. Thank You!

Teacher Vacations: Our teachers take well deserved time off year round but many vacations take place during the summer. You will notice some new and returning faces as we give the teachers the breaks they deserve. One of the great things about Halsey Schools is our team teaching atmosphere that allows your children to bond with our entire staff. So even when some of the teachers are hanging out at the beach, there will always be other familiar faces at school and camp.

Summer Change of Clothes: Please make sure your child has at least one complete set of extra spring clothes & shoes. Don’t forget to label everything.

Wear Sunscreen Everyday: Children (10 months- 6yrs)  should come to school wearing an SPF 30 or more on all exposed areas of the skin. If you would like us to re-apply a medication form must be completed. We also recommend wearing a hat. We will be having a lot of outdoor fun!  (Always consult your child’s physician.)

Quality Start Los Angeles (QSLA): We have teamed up again with QSLA to make our program even better. QSLA provides another set of eyes with regular obervations of our classrooms, teachers, & facilities. We set goals together and work closely to improve where we can be better and keep doing what’s successful! They provide tons of opportunities for hands on training sessions, new ideas and perspectives, latest research and MORE! Let us know how you think we are doing here. Or give us 5 stars on yelp!
