Preschool/ School Age: Dear parents, we would like to take this time to say how excited we are to start a new year but also how sad we are to see the summer gone already. It has been so much fun over the last couple months but we know the fun will continue.

We are also wishing them all good luck with their new adventures and their new school year. We would like to say welcome to our new friends that will be joining us and welcome back to our already friends that will still be with us this school year. We are looking forward to learning all about creative art, all about me and many more things this month. We are very excited for the activities that get to come with the fall weather.
