- Staff changes: We sadly announce that Gail
S (Toddler B) is no longer working due to her health. She was an
incredible teacher here for over 10 years and will be greatly missed.
We are working now to full her position. Jadena L (Infant B) recently
had surgery and will be out for an indefinite amount of time. We
are working to find a permanent, yet hopefully short term replacement
for Jadena while she recovers.
Please let me know if you have any questions. My current
working hours are Monday, Wednesday and every other Friday 8:45 am
- 5:45 pm; Tuesday, Thursday, and every other Friday 7:30 am - 4:30
pm. I will be out of the office this week Thursday and Friday.
Don’t forget to sign up for pictures by the end of the

to buy and no sitting fee! Just send us an outfit and we will take
care of the rest!
