  • We have one new family to introduce who joined us in August. Jameson Dowell will be going into Kindergarten at Kersey Creek. Lyla Dowell is in the Teddy Bear class.  We would like to welcome these children and their family to Pooh Corner Center.
  • We would also like to say “Good Luck” to those children going to “Big” school. Some we will be seeing as “School Agers” in the afternoon, others we will be seeing on breaks. We hope you all have a great year!
  • Tuition payments are due on Friday for the upcoming week. Balances that are due will be in red; a credit balance will be in black. There will be a $25 late payment fee posted to accounts that have a balance due at closing on Fridays.
  • Please be sure that we have current and CORRECT contact information in your child’s file. It is extremely important that we be able to get in contact with you in case of emergency, sickness, etc. If you need to update your emergency contact people and/or authorized pick up people, please see Mrs. Darlene.
  • We need to have updated physical and immunizations information each time your child goes for a well-baby visit. You can grab a form from the office shelf or from the classroom.
