JULY 2020

  • HOLIDAY – Pooh Corner will be closed on Friday, July 3rd for the holiday. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday! P.S. – Hopefully, everyone will be safe and take all possible precautions while enjoying the holiday. If there is a chance that you or your family member have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 symptoms over the holiday, please get tested or quarantine yourself for 14 days before coming into the center

  • NEW CHILDREN: We have one new child to introduce who joined us in June. We want to welcome Wise Dixon to the Infant program as he joins his siblings Hayze, Devin and Charlie who are here also. Some of our friends who left because of the Pandemic came back in June also. It is SO good to have them back with us.
  • ICE CREAM TRUCK: The ice cream truck will continue to come on Wednesdays. Please be sure your child has ice cream money. This seems to be the highlight of the day!
  • TRIKE-A-THON UPDATE: A huge thank you to everyone who supported St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital by sponsoring your child in the Trike-a-thon. We raised $1,095 for the children of St. Jude’s. Thanks again!
  • SKIN PRODUCTS: Please be sure to send in sunscreen and/or insect repellent if you want your child to have these products applied at Pooh Corner. We must have signed permission forms for these products to be applied here. We keep these forms on the shelf at the office. These forms can give “long term” permission for applications throughout the summer but the forms MUST have the specific name of the product being used. If you decide to change the product, you must complete a new form.
