Please be prompt.

VISITING:  Parents are encouraged to come to preschool with their child at least once a year. These visits are a time for children and parents to enjoy preschool together. If you are coming to spend time with your preschooler, please leave other children at home. Opportunities for parents to visit will be between the months of October and April. There will be sign-up sheets for each class.  We can accommodate one parent per session.
