MAY 2020

  • SPECIAL NOTICE 5/01/20: Normally, the May newsletters have all kinds of information about upcoming events, swimming lessons, Graduation, summer activities, sign up lists, etc. We knew what was going on and had lots of things to look forward to gearing up for the summer session. Well, I guess that WAS the “NORM” and this month (and especially this summer) will be anything but “NORMAL”. We really have no idea what to expect or when. We will continue to follow the safety guidelines set by Social Services, the Health Department and the Governor. The Tabby Cats will be practicing for Graduation “just in case” we get the chance to have a small (very small) program if the “social” group size lifts a little. We will have to wait and see if/when anything changes. We will let you know as soon as we get a better idea if it will be possible to have a “formal” program.
  • Mother’s Day is just around the corner! We hope all our special Mothers and Grandmothers have a very special and HAPPY Mother’s Day!

  • Pooh Corner will be closed on May 25th for the Memorial Day holiday! Have a safe and happy holiday!

  • 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.

A safe, fun and nurturing environment.
