Mara's Memos

We are having a fantastic summer.  The children really have enjoyed our special events.  The kids got a real kick out of water play day.  It's not often you get to show off your bathing suit to all your friends at school!

This month will continue to be busy.  We are all excited about Lava Lava Island VBS.  The kids will learn great songs to help remember the Bible points each day.  Jesus brings us hope, Jesus followed God's word, Jesus gives us courage, Jesus saves us, and Jesus gives us a reason to celebrate.  So dress your kids in their most wild Hawaiian shirt and send them off for some wild and wacky adventures with Survivor Sal!

We will also have fun with bugs this month.  Don't be surprised if your child asks you to go on a bug safari with them and catch those little creatures.

If your child wants, he/she can dress up as their favorite super hero this month.  Or be completely original and let them create their own costume.

Thanks so much for having fun with us here this summer.


Rate Increase

It is time for our yearly raise in tuition.  Further ABC requirements and the cost of living increases require us to increase our tuition so we can continue to provide quality care for your children.  Our prices, as always, are competitive with the other local daycares; we are higher than some and cost less than others.  Thanks so much for all your support and understanding.  These new rates will take effect August 21,  2017.

Tadpoles, Caterpillars, and Ladybugs- $188

Bumblebees, Monkeys, and Bears- $173

Owls, Birds, Butterflies, and Lions -$163
