Pajama Day

There is nothing better than rolling out of bed and coming to daycare in your pj's. Parents love it because it makes getting the kids out of the house a bit easier. Kids love it because pajamas are comfortable! Pajama Day during the month of September will be on Thursdays and in October it will be on Friday. Please remember that we still go outside so shoes must be worn. In addition, make sure if your children wear footie pajamas that that the bottoms are not slippery!


School is in full swing and we are enjoying seeing all of our friends that had off this summer! Just a friendly reminder please give us a courtesy call if your child will not be attending as we plan according to the schedule you provide. This is VERY important when it comes to the children riding the bus to and from school.
