  • NEW CHILDREN – We have several new children to introduce who joined us in December. Elias Daniels and Theodore Todd were new to the Infant class. Brylee and Alivia Burton were new to the Toddler class. Ryan Burton was new to the Teddy Bear class. We would like to welcome these children and their families to Pooh Corner.
  • CLOTHING – Please be sure that we have a weather appropriate change of clothes here for your child.
  • PROGRESS REPORTS – All children will be receiving an age appropriate progress report on Dec. 20th. Preschool parents will need to sign and return the Progress Report so that it can be completed again in June. Infant, toddler and school age progress reports do not have to be returned. You will be amazed at the progress your children have made this school year!
  • INCLEMENT WEATHER – Along with the holiday season comes the possibility of SNOW! Please know that we make EVERY effort possible to remain open during inclement weather. However, should there be a need to close the center or change operating hours, it will be announced on the television (Channel 6). We will post any closings and/or changes on the Pooh Corner website and change the message on the answering machine as soon as a decision has been made.
  • TUITION PAYMENTS are due on Friday for the upcoming week. Balances that are due will be in red; a credit balance will be in black. There will be a $25 late payment fee posted to accounts that have a balance due at closing on Fridays.
  • Please be sure that we have current and CORRECT contact information in your child’s file. It is extremely important that we be able to get in contact with you in case of emergency, sickness, etc. If you need to update your emergency contact people and/or authorized pick up people, please see Mrs. Darlene.
  • We need to have updated Emergency Medical Authorization forms and Registration forms filled out for EVERYONE. Please take an extra minute to fill them out. These forms are kept on the office shelf.
