Happy 2024 Berry Patch Families,

We are eager to be together again next week! I hope that each of you had a wonderful two weeks gathering with family and celebrating together.

As we turn the corner in the school year, we have a lot to look forward to:

  • Our partnership class with Soccer Shots begins next week on Tuesday and Wednesday
  • The crew from Science Made Fun will be coming for an in-house field trip about fossils and dinosaurs
  • We will have a guest musician visiting both of our schools. Peter Borne will share his love of you piano with each class and give the children an opportunity to sing and dance and even get a chance to try playing the piano

2024-25 School Year REGISTRATION

  • Registration Form for current families will be live at 10:00 a.m. Monday, January 8th
  • Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis
  • The 2024-25 Registration Form can be found HERE on the Registration Page on our website
  • You will receive another email Monday morning with the link above


It’s hard to believe it is time to start planning for summer! Dates for Camp Sizzleberry will be set and sent to current families by the week of January 22nd. This is a great experience for our potty-trained Huckleberries, Blueberries and Strawberries! Stay tuned for details mid-month.


As lifelong learners who strive for excellence in all we do, our amazing staff is always learning and growing. We would love to hear from you as we begin the second half of the school year about your experience this year at The Berry Patch. Your reflections and ideas will give us insight on how we can make these next five months the BEST part of the school year for your family! Please take 10 minutes or so to fill out our Mid-Year Parent Survey before January 17th. Thank you in advance!

We are honored to partner with you in these early childhood years. Your children are blessed by your care and we welcome the opportunity to join you in nurturing your child’s heart and mind. What a gift to be a part of this foundational time in your child’s life!

With Much Gratitude,
Molly Dykstra
Director/Co-Owner, The Berry Patch Schools
