JUNE 2021

  • NEW CHILDREN – There are several new children who joined our Pooh Corner Family in May! Emma Mitchell, and Dillon Donovan have joined our Infant class. We have Carlise and Carlton Smith who are now in our Preschool Program, and Antonio Savage and Carra Fuell from Elmont to add to our School Age group. We welcome them all and their families with open arms!
  • REMINDERS- There will be Progress Reports going home on June 17th for all age groups. Preschool parents may keep the reports this time; they do not need to be returned. We also are so happy to say the Ice Cream Truck will be coming back every Wednesday starting on the June 23rd and continuing throughout the summer. Be sure to check the ‘Ice Cream Truck’ section of the newsletter for more information.
  • HOLIDAY – We would like to wish everyone a happy Father’s Day this month from the Pooh Corner family!
  • SUMMER UPDATE – We are anxiously awaiting news on updated transportation regulations which should be coming shortly. Until that happens, we will have special shows, Camp Fit, arts and crafts, sports, special celebrations and other activities to make some “in house” fun to help everyone enjoy summer. 
  • SCHOOL YEAR 2021-2022 – Hanover County sent out the survey for the new school year in regards to attending face-to-face, doing virtual school, transportation needs, etc. Please let us know what your plans are as we also need to make plans for the fall. If you will be needing after school care for your child please let us know NOW. We are already getting calls for after school care in September and our spots on the vans will be limited. We have several of our up and coming Kindergarten children who will be needing spots on the van also.
