  • NEW CHILDREN – We have several new children to introduce who joined us in January. Lucas Morvan and Graham Sherrod were new in the Infant class. Naomi Speh was new to the Bumble Bee class. We would like to welcome these children and their families to Pooh Corner Center.
  • ALL CENTER PAJAMA DAY #3– Pajama Day seems to be a HUGE hit for everyone, including teachers! We will have another Pajama Day on Feb. 2nd. Let’s see how many different sets of P.J.s everyone has!
  • TAX RECEIPTS – Everyone should have gotten their year end tax receipts by now. If you have not gotten yours please see Mrs. Darlene.
  • 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.
  • TIME TO UPDATE – I still need quite a few parents to update the information for their child’s file. If you have not done so, PLEASE pick up the forms from the office and return as soon as possible. We need the Emergency Professional Medical Service Authorization form and the Registration form done. It is extremely important that we have correct phone numbers and addresses for everyone. We also need email addresses for parents as well. Please make sure we are able to get in touch with you at all times in case of an emergency or illness.
