MARCH 2021

  • NEW CHILDREN – We have several new children to introduce who started in February. Lyla Dowell was new to the Bumble Bee class. Jameson Dowell and Michael Pontier-Creson were new to the School Age program.  We would like to welcome these children and their families to Pooh Corner Center. 
  • ALL CENTER PAJAMA DAY #4 – Once again, Pajama day was a huge hit in February and everyone said they would love to have another one in March.  March 5th will be another All Center Pajama Day.  Wear your craziest!!
  • BUNNY PHOTOS – Southern Smiles Photography will be here on March 4th, starting at 9 a.m., to take Spring pictures with a live rabbit.  You will receive an online ordering code after the photoshoot to view and purchase products.  All viewing and purchasing will be done virtually, there will be no printed proofs or packages to view.  All infants, toddlers, and preschoolers present that day will be photographed.  School Age virtual learners will need to sign up to have their pictures taken.  Please watch for a signup sheet.  Happy Spring!
  • REMINDER – Please be sure to let us know when your child will not be attending Pooh Corner for ANY reason. We need to know this for lunch and food counts, and most importantly, for maintaining ratios. If your child is out sick, please let us know of any symptoms your child may be experiencing. This is required, as stated in the Parental Agreement that everyone signs. It is helpful if we can let other parents know what symptoms to look for, in case there is more than one child with similar symptoms.
  • 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.
