A Talk that All Parents Need to Hear

Such a cute and beautifully worded video!

It’s time to say good-bye.

Our class has come to an end.

I’ve made more cherished memories

And many more friends.

I’ve watched your children learn and grow

And change from day to day.

I hope that all the things we’ve done

Have helped in some small way.

So it’s with happy memories

I send them out the door,

With great hope and expectations

For what next year holds in store!

We wish you well!

Exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain’s release of a hormone called serotonin.

Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused.

When you have great staff, you want to shout it from the roof tops!
Our staff do so much throughout the day but it's when the kids leave that they pull up their sleeves in the rain or shine to make sure the classrooms are clean and sanitary for the kids. Only a couple staff are pictured but everyone helped as a team to get these guys clean!
