A Place To Grow Too is ready for the month of July. We will be starting July with a week-long theme of Hooray for the USA/spectacular sports. Moving on to Disney Week, Pirate & Mermaids Week, and we are ending the month with Wilderness Adventures. Kicking off Water Play last month was a great idea. The children are having a blast playing in the water with all of their friends. Reminder, please have the appropriate water shoes for your child to participate in water play. No open-toed shoes are allowed in the center. Keep an eye for special days throughout the summer!
Please like us on Facebook to see picture of your loved ones on a day to day.

Water play has started, and we would like to remind our parents that if you haven’t already, to make sure you send in bathing suits, CLOSED toed water shoes, and a towel for your child(ren).
