  • NEW CHILDREN – We have one new child to introduce who joined us in December. Kinsley Birkenfeld was new in the Toddler class. We would like to Kinsley and her family to Pooh Corner.
  • ALL CENTER PAJAMA DAY – It seems that Pajama Day is a much-enjoyed activity, so we are adding January 18th as a PJ day for everyone. Please remember that we will be going outside, weather permitting, so wear warm P.J.s or bring extra clothes for outdoor play. Show off those new holiday jammies!
  • WINTER PICTURES – We hope that everyone was able to see their holiday pictures taken by Southern Smiles. If you did not, the online gallery is still open and available for printing photos. If you need your password to access online photos, please see Ms. Sharon or Mrs. Darlene.
  • PROGRESS REPORTS – The teachers sent out Progress Reports on December 20th. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. The Preschool Progress Reports should be signed and returned so you can get them back at the end of the 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, it will be announced as early as possible. It will be announced on WTVR 6 and any affiliated radio stations. We will post any closings on our website and update the message on our phone line.
  • UPDATED FORMS – We need to have updated Emergency Medical Authorization forms and Registration forms filled out for EVERYONE for 2021. Please take an extra minute to fill them out. We now need an email address on file for all families.
