  • NEW CHILDREN – In August, we welcomed: Dakota Hess in the infant class; Sophie Anderson and Emmitt Browning in the Toddler class; and Emory Yanick to the Tabby Cats! Just in time for the new school year!
  • REMINDERS- *IMPORTANT*- As of July 1st, 2021, all child care centers in Virginia will be licensed, inspected and regulated by the Department of Education. Social Services is still in charge of the child care subsidy program so there will not be any significant changes in that area. We will be sure to notify you all of any significant parental requirement changes as we receive them. Everyone should have received a copy of the new rates, which will begin starting on September 3rd. Costs for food, gas, staffing, gas, etc. have hit child care especially hard, so we appreciate your understanding as we adjust our rates so we can care for the children.
    • We will have Fall Pictures being taken with Southern Smiles Photography on September 30th. If your child does not normally attend on that Thursday, feel free to bring them in to join in on the fun and take some excellent pics!
  • HOLIDAY – We will be closed on September 6th for Labor Day. Enjoy the day off!
  • SCHOOL YEAR 2021-2022 – We hope everyone has a smooth transition starting/going back to school!
    • *IMPORTANT*- If your child is on our van list for after school care and there is a day they will NOT be riding to Pooh Corner please notify us so we know not to expect them.
