A Note From Ms. Trish


Happy Valentine's Day Week!! I sure love each of your children! Getting to share in their lives is a huge blessing! Thanks for all of your care and support!


Our fall registration is now open to new families! Tell your friends! There is still room on our roster for most classes. Don't miss out... Playday isn't Playday without you!


The staff is currently training on our ProCare App! We look forward to this new way of additional communication and have begun launching it school wide. If you have not received an invitation to join (the email is FROM PROCARE, not Playday), please let the office know so that we can resend. ****Please note: after you have signed up for ProCare, you also must download the ProCare App on your phone. We now are asking parents to sign in using the QR code at your child's classroom door.



****You may sign your child in to class while you are waiting in the Atrium using the QR code on the doors. This will save time and congestion at the classrooms.




February Dates:


2/12: Make It Plate Orders due

2/13 and 2/14: Valentines Parties

2/14: Q and U Wedding (TK and K)

2/19 and 2/20: No School

Playday is so excited to launch our "Give and Take" toy program! This private Facebook group is a great way to purge toys and help us replenish our classrooms!

Weather Cancelation policy:


If Allen Independent School District (AISD) closes due to inclement weather, Playday will also be closed. If AISD opens an hour late, Playday will open at 10:00 AM. If AISD delays 2 hours, Playday will be closed. Due to staffing and building restrictions that are set at the beginning of the school year, we are unable to make up bad weather days. If it is necessary to dismiss early because of inclement weather, or other reasons, the remainder of that day will not be made up. Parents will be notified by phone, text, or email if we dismiss early. No refunds will be given if Playday is closed due to unavoidable circumstances, including weather.


You will be notified via email as soon as the decision is made to close. We will also post on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

Spotlight on Staff

Liz Stubbs

Ms. Liz is our Yoga Movement and Music teacher. Her favorite thing about Playday is that she gets to see every child at least twice a week, sometimes more! She loves watching them learn the yoga poses and sing and dance. She's also extremely grateful to work with such an outstanding group of women. Ms. Liz thanks God every day for her job! Besides working at Playday, Ms. Liz loves all things yoga, hiking and nature, health and nutrition, spending time with her family, live music, teaching her adult Sunday School class, and being an active member of FUMC Allen. Ms. Liz and her husband, Tony, have been married for 29 years. They moved to Allen in 1999, and both of their sons attended Playday way back in the day. Charlie is now 24 and lives in Phoenix, and Marshall is 20 and is a sophomore at UNT. Ms. Liz is a very proud mama and can say that both of her sons are very talented musicians!
