MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND MAY YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR.
Summer is rapidly approaching and will be here before you know it! The Nannies are planning a fun and exciting summer in the sun! We would like to ask our parents to help us out with these summer plans. We have many field trips scheduled along with different arts and crafts planned. It would be very helpful if you read all correspondence that we have posted either on your child’s cubby/door or at the main entrance. We do not want any child to miss out on the fun. However, due to staffing needs and the need to make certain reservations in advance, it is imperative that you read all instructions, follow those guidelines and sign your child up as soon as possible. For children ages three years of age and older, we will be using the Center’s vans. Each van has been equipped with the appropriate safety standards. If you have concerns about this and you would rather your child NOT attend the out of Center field trips, this is also your option. Parents of children under the age of four will NOT attend out of Center field trips.

2019-2020 Pleasant Hill
Mark your calendars for Friday February 14, 2020 for this year's Valentine's Party!
We ask that you have your child "sign" the back of their cards they plan to exchange. this really works out well and decreases the amount of confusion for the children and the teachers.
Many parents ask us if they can bring treats during the party and the answer to this is "yes!" as long as it is "Prepackaged."
As we get closer to Valentine's Day, ask your teacher in your child's room for the number of playmates they have in their room.
If you have any further questions you may either ask the lead teacher in your child's room or you may come to the office and Vickie and/or Cindy will be glad to assist you!
