JANUARY NEWSLETTER

After several weeks off to spend time with family and friends we are excited to be able to play and learn with you and your child/ren again! We had an amazing December of special programming and we look forward to continuing to learn and engage with your family with more age-specific programming.


With snowier days ahead we hope to be able to incorporate some outdoor programming to allow us to continue expressing our love for the outdoors. We will continue to enjoy the warmth of Sand Hill as we look ahead to the continued renovation to our new home at the Forestdale School. We are looking for our grand reopening of our Play and Learn in Sandwich classroom (PALS; formally the Discovery Center) in the upcoming months!


To continue to be able to offer programs that meet our family's needs, please take a moment to fill out our parent questionnaire to share your thoughts!
