Inclement Weather Reminder

In the event of inclement weather, the Weekday Preschool will follow the same closings as Clarke County Schools. If Clarke County Schools have called for a one-hour delay, the Weekday Preschool will still begin on time. If Clarke County is delayed two hours, we will close. If the preschool feels it is in the best interest of families and teachers to close the preschool due to the weather, we will send an email to you as soon as possible to update you.

SAVE THE DATE for PRESCHOOL CAMP!

We hope you will plan to join us for camp this summer! Our camps are available to 2s, 3s, and Pre-K students, and the hours are the same as the regular preschool day. The themes are still being planned, but we want to go ahead and give you the dates in case you are already making summer plans for your family!
