Situations change so don’t be hesitant to apply to this confidential resource.

WINTER IS HERE
Winter is officially here! The wind is blowing and the snow is coming down – or WILL BE at some point! Please make sure your child is dressed for success in the outdoor weather. Coats, hats, gloves, snow pants, and boots are required for playing and learning outside. We are outside for play and learning every day that the “feels like” temperature is above zero degrees.
