Gymnastics and the party zone (kid zip line, bounce houses, climbing structures, etc)! Come out to have fun with The Tot Spot Family/ And of course after the fun it's time to eat and watch our latest kiddos graduate. I'm sure they'll be some old friends there and of course, it's a great time to create some new ties with our school family.

In the Classroom!

Easter egg popsicles

These frozen Easter egg popsicles are a great way to reuse some Easter eggs from this year! You could make these yummy healthy popsicles with just juice, add pieces of fruit, or even yogurt to make them so many different refreshing flavors!

The Book Nook

Oh Say Can You Seed?

Thinking about planting some plants or seeds with your little one this spring season? Learning about plants and concepts like photosynthesis doesn’t have to be daunting – especially when your guide is the Cat in the Hat, with help from Thing 1 and Thing 2! This book gives a whimsical approach to learning about plants and pollination.

The Parent's Spotlight

Thank you!!!


  • Thank you to all the parents who donated supplies, food, and decorations for our Valentine's Day party!

  • Thank you to all the parents and family members who made our Valentine's Day party extra special by being our guests!

  • Remember there is a suggestion box in the lobby, and we love to hear about ideas to enhance the learning environment for your children.

  • Thank you for your understanding of being closed March 15th in order for teachers to participate in conferences to become ever better teachers to your kiddos

  • Bringing in donations of items anytime we ask...you guys rock!!

Would you like to donate?

We could use:


  • Shoes (all sizes) for back ups for when kiddos have accidents
  • Shoe boxes with lids
  • Storage boxes
  • Clear plastic jars with lids ie mayonnaise
  • Is there ever a time when you say to yourself, " I wonder if The Tot Spot would want this"? We could use it in so many ways. You may have babies, but the whole school is yours. Everything can turn into a sensory activity or learning experience. So, before you throw out your junk, ask your teacher if it could be used

The Teacher's Spotlight

Question: If you could give up one household chore what would it be and why?


  • Ms. Crystal: Cleaning up the bathroom in a house of boys!!!

    Because they are boys!

  • Ms. Rachel: Laundry! I hate having to sort my clothes and hang the half I don’t want to shrink!

  • Ms. Alisha: Clean the restroom because it’s the only chore I may do upon occasion. Thank you to my darling hubby who does everything else!
  • Mr. Mike: Dust because of allergies!!!
  • Ms. Le Andra: Dishes for sure!! I'm horrible because I wait until I have a full sink and then it's just gross and takes FOREVER!!
  • Ms. Katie: I would give up folding laundry. It takes forever and just when I think I'm done, another basket seems to magically appear. I would also love to never match socks again. I mean, really, where do all the matches go?!
  • Ms. Erin: Doing the dishes because there's always a new dish to wash more often than any other chore
  • Ms. Maggie: I would eliminate cleaning. I would eliminate cleaning because it takes too long, boring and I am not very good at it
