A Note from Ms. Trish

Our Outdoor Classroom is ready and should be open for classes in the next couple of weeks. Our STEAM center is also open with exciting materials for all of our ages to experience Science/Technology/Engineering/Art/Math in a different environment and in a different way. Our staff is committed to creating the best early learning experience possible for each child in our care. Please let me know if you have any questions! My door is open and I love visiting with you about your precious child!

Enjoy a cup of coffee after drop off! Missions Cafe, FUMC Allen's coffee shop, will be open and ready to serve you! Proceeds benefit mission efforts, including the House of Hope in Honduras.
We are outside every day that the weather is nice... which is a lot!! Please keep this in mind when you are choosing shoes for your child. We request athletic shoes or close-toed shoes be worn at school.

Rain boots are super nice for puddles... but not so great for running in the gym! If you send your child in rain boots, please make sure they also have a pair of sneakers for our large motor times. Thanks so much!

Board Member Spotlight
Hi Playday families! I’m Alan Quick and I currently serve as the Treasurer of the Playday board. I joined the board last year and am grateful for all the changes to Playday. Linda and I are long time members of this church; we’ve helped it grow through five building campaigns.   Our two children went to Playday in the 90s, and Linda was Board President when Playday expanded to the four-day format. I am excited about the new families that have enrolled now that the pandemic has subsided. 
Please help us keep everyone safe by driving slowly while in our parking lot, especially during our carpool time. Share this information with all of your drivers. Thanks so much!
A Note About Nutrition
Well balanced meals provide the food children need to grow, think, fight infection and fuel their bodies. Are you needing ideas for nutritious lunch choices for your child? Check out sample menus, information on food allergies, and choking hazards at www.fns.usda.gov/tn/myplate.
We have several severe nut allergies in our building. If your child is in a nut-free classroom, please do not send any food containing nuts for lunch or snack. Thanks for helping us keep Playday a fun and safe place for every child!
Please remember school starts at 9:00 each day. Thank you for being punctual... we love seeing all of our friends' smiling faces each morning!
