Bee Your Best
  I am a Preschooler

I am not built to sit still, keep my hands to myself, take turns, be patient, stand in line or be quiet.

I need motion, I need novelty, I need adventure, I need to engage the world with my whole body.

(Trust me, I'm Learning)

Head Start and GSRP
The preschool children will not play outside if the "feels like" temperature is 19 degrees or less (factoring in the wind-chill), or if the weather is inclement.  Please be sure your child has appropriate winter wear for days they are able to play outside.  This would include snow pants, coats, boots, mittens, and hats, etc. so they will have warm and dry fun.  If they are unable to go outside, they will have a wonderful time playing in our gym.  We have brought the bikes in so they can enjoy them in the gym as well as other fun things to work the wiggles out.

Remember...Your child MUST have a change of shoes to wear in the classroom; it is too slippery in boots as well as too hot!  If you wish to send an extra pair of shoes or slippers for them to keep at school, they can be stored in their inside cubbies.  Your child must have shoes or slippers on for safety, no stocking feet.  Thank you for your support and understanding.

Lil' Pirate Daycare is open Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. year around, including snow days and non-school days; closed major holidays. We offer full or part-time daycare, call 873-6207 to see if we have openings!  We are accepting applications for fall enrollment.  Stop in and see Lil' Pirate Daycare and meet our friendly and inviting staff.
  Call 873-6207 for more information.
