Update from Preschool Office


We have had an awesome start to the 22-23 school year! Thank you to all our new and returning families for your kind words of encouragement and for working with us to ensure that all of our children have a smooth transition into their classrooms. As always, please reach out to us in the preschool office should you have any questions or concerns.



Please continue to watch for any signs of illness in your child. If you suspect illness, please keep your child home. Contact your physician if you think it might be covid-related so he/she can guide you as to the latest recommendations and also treat your child according to their own personal health needs.


The CDC has a list of developmental milestones for each age and stage of your child’s life from birth through high school and ideas and suggestions for maximizing your child’s potential: https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/childdevelopment/positiveparenting/index.html
