We LOVE birthday parties. You are welcome

to send in birthday treats on your child's special day!




Fall is here! Due to the fact that the children play outside twice a day, please dress them appropriately for the weather.  Because of staffing reasons, we cannot exclude any child from outdoor play, so your cooperation is very much appreciated. Please update and LABEL your child’s extra clothing so it is appropriate for the weather.


October is Fire Prevention month. We will be having Officer Troy from the Clawson Fire Department visit our center on Tuesday, October 8th at 10:15 a.m.



A reminder to all parents: about our late fee policyTuition is due on the first day that your child is here each week.  If payment is not received on that day then a $15 late fee will be added to your weekly charge. This must be paid before your child will be allowed to stay at the center. No exceptions. Some parents find it more convenient to pay in advance for the month, or bi-weekly.  Please feel free to do this if it is easier for you.


We will have a Harvest Party and Halloween celebration on Friday, October 25th at

4:00 – 5:30 p.m. We will have family games and activities and cider and donuts will be served.  Please bring your child’s costume to change them into when you arrive at the center for the celebration.  Children will pick a pumpkin out from our “pumpkin patch”. 


Thursday, October 31st we will be having a pizza lunch for Halloween.  The cost is $5 which includes lunch and a special afternoon treat (NO COSTUMES PLEASE). Please wear black and orange/festive colors.


Parents, if your child is sent home because of being sick (example: rash or conjunctivitis) a Dr.’s note is needed for readmission to the center with what was diagnosed and when child can return.  To be on the safe side whenever you take your child to the doctor for an illness always ask for a Dr.’s note.  This will make our job and yours much easier on deciding when a child is well enough to return.  Thank you.


As a reminder: We do not do year end totals please keep your receipts!!
