Mother’s Day Tea
Friday, May 11, 2018

Story Time at the National Archives Wednesday, May 16, 2018


Plant a seed in a bag - Plant a common been seed (from the grocery store) in a plastic bag with a wet paper towel. Your little one will enjoy watching the seed germinate and observing the first roots grow.

​Foam play - Mix some baby friendly liquid soap and water in a blender to create some fun bubbles, and place them in a basin for your little one to explore. Add some coloring to make rainbow foam!

Bake a Mother’s Day cake – Children can get involved with the baking process from a surprisingly young age! Baking projects help develop early math skills like capacity and measurement, and strengthen fine-motor abilities.

Mark  Your Calendars

Our children at the center have been busy with Earth Day Activities. They started planting the center garden and are learning about growing different plants. They are enjoying watching everything grow and bloom! With all the craziness of the current weather, please ensure that your children have weather appropriate clothing as the teachers will be trying to take advantage of the beautiful days and take the children on walks and buggy rides.

Join us on Friday, May 11th for our annual Mother’s Day Tea. 


Layla Asplen President


Join us on Friday, June 8 for our “Year-end Program.” Following the children’s presentation, a special guest will join us for a concert. All families are welcomed to join us. In other news, summer camp is getting full, so please let Ms. Sharleen know if you plan on staying for the summer or the fall.

This year, the center will be closed for staff training the week of August 27th. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 4th (the day after Labor Day).
