FEATURING…

The children & staff of Fair Acres welcome you to celebrate the end of another fabulous year!

DATE:  Wednesday, June 22nd 2016

TIME:  FAIR ACRES CLOSES AT 3:30—no extended day on this day.

  • 5:15 – Trolley transportation begins (ongoing)
  • 6:00 – Children dropped off in classrooms

(Please stay with your child until 6:00. Teachers will NOT be in classrooms until 6:00)

  • 6:30-7:30 – Celebration show featuring performances by our students & presentation of Kindergarten diplomas
  • 7:00-8:00 – Cookout
  • 8:30 – Trolley transportation ends

PLACE:  Front Lawn of Fair Acres

TRANSPORTATION: The Fair Acres Trolleys will be running from 5:15 to 8:30 p.m. continuously shuttling all students, parents, grandparents, etc. to and from Fair Acres. Park cars at the West Villages Elementary School parking lot (located to the left of the school) on Osterville-West Barnstable Road.  Please understand that the trolleys are the best transportation for all guests (including elderly), as the trolleys will be the only traffic allowed to drop passengers at the front doors of the school.

  • PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF @ FAIR ACRES 
  • PLEASE DO NOT PARK @ FAIR ACRES
  • PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON FLINT STREET

(Due to the size of this event, it is essential that everyone parks at West Villages and utilizes the FAIR ACRES Trolley)

We also ask that you take into consideration the number of guests that you bring. Safety and security is always our number one concern. Many families choose to set out blankets/low-backed beach chairs during the day to save a viewing area.  In doing this we ask you to be considerate of others by not blocking the center viewing area with chairs.  A roped off area near the front of the stage will be reserved for our Kindergarten families. This is a special evening for the children of Fair Acres. We will be saying “good bye” to our beloved Kindergarten Class as well as celebrating this year’s theme…

PLEASE NOTE: FAIR ACRES WILL CLOSE AT 3:30 ON THIS DAY TO PREPARE FOR OUR BIG SHOW!!!

 We look forward to seeing you on June 22nd!

Carolyn Larson Returns to Fair Acres!

Fair Acres Students Benefit From One-On-One Instruction

Much has changed since Carolyn Larson opened Fair Acres Country Day School in 1987. After receiving her college degree at age 50, running a successful preschool for 18 years and retiring in 2005, Carolyn finds herself back where she started, assisting with our full day Kindergarten!

Here is what Carolyn has to say on her return to Fair Acres…

“Now, 11 years after my retirement, I am back where I love to be, enjoying every minute with the Kindergarten class. Miss Kara has done an incredible job creating and implementing a complete Kindergarten curriculum that prepares your children for a successful integration into 1st grade. I work with two students each week in the private tutoring room at the Sanborn Building reviewing the weeks programs. Not only is this time extremely productive with the students, I find it incredibly rewarding for myself! Now I know what you are thinking…’How beneficial can a couple of hours a week be with an 82-year-old teacher?!’ Well I have to tell you, I am amazed at how much we are able to cover in our individual time together and the results are amazing (just ask any one of our Kindergarten students!). I am so grateful for this opportunity to work with your children; Kara is amazing and the children are so special. I am also very proud to still be a part of this incredible experience here at Fair Acres Country Day School!”

Having Carolyn back at Fair Acres has been a complete joy for all. Watching the students “line up” in preparation for their time with Carolyn, tells the whole story. Thank you Carolyn, for making our Kindergarten even more special!

The benefits of one-on-one and small-group instruction in early childhood education are countless. At Fair Acres, we are so fortunate to be able to offer individual and small-group learning, unlike public schools that must operate within the constraints of large classes and high student-teacher ratios.

Our teachers are first-rate educators, passionate about helping children develop their cognitive and social skills, their language abilities, and their interest in learning about the wonders of the world around them. 

We have limited availability in our 2016-2017 classes! Learn more here!
