A very special thank you to outgoing Board Director, Kevin Manning, and outgoing Board President, Frank Petty. We are grateful to you both for your time and talent over the past six years.

We are pleased to announce that YCC Guide, Jeanette Kania, has earned her AMI Assistance to Infancy (A to I) training. We are so happy to be welcoming Jeanette to our faculty!

Other Notes:

Order lunches and childcareLunch/Childcare Ordering
Our “orderlunches” system has a new look and a new name; it is now called Boonli. In spite of the new look and name, it can still be accessed through the homepage by clicking the “Childcare and Lunch Ordering” button. Your previous login information still works. Once you’re logged in, it will look different, but it has the same ordering options. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Schrader at the front desk at learn@traversechildrenshouse.org, or by calling 231-929-9325.

Please apply sunscreen to your child before coming to school in the morning.  We will reapply as needed throughout the day using a generic sunscreen of at least 30 SPF.  If you'd prefer to send your own sunscreen, please notify your child's teacher and boldly label the sunscreen with your child's name.
