Dear Families,

October is passing in a blur!  The children had a blast with their grandparents (or “grandparents for a day”) at the Pumpkin Picking Hayride and at the time of this writing, it looks like we will have great weather for our Halloween Parade on October 31st at 10:00 a.m.  We love having our families join us!

We have another special event for families coming up, and we hope you will continue to participate! Please mark your calendars for our Multicultural Feast, scheduled for Friday, November 30th at 6:00 p.m.  (more…)

We will have a 30 minute music and movement session to enjoy together and then a 15 minute social snack time for parents and children to connect. There is a $5.00 charge per person attending. (One adult and one child is $10.00)  Please RSVP to Miss Val. Space is limited.
