Friday August 4th..............Last day of Summer 2017

August 7th-11th..................Serendipity Closed for Set Up Week

Monday August 14th.............First day of School Year 2017-2018



The ART project on Central will cause road blocks and closures at various places over the next few weeks. Here's a break down of when and where you might run into problems:

June 29th-June 30th Carlisle to Girard, West bound lane CLOSED

June 29th- July 1st Girard to Carlisle, East bound lane CLOSED

June 30th-July 3rd Carlisle to Morningside, East bound lane CLOSED


Remember that our half-day schedule is from 7:30-12:30. Children registered for the morning only need to be picked up by 12:30 or else late fees will be charged. These late fees go directly to the classroom fund and are payable upon pick up. 


We still have openings in some of the classrooms for the upcoming school year in the Fall. Please help us by spreading the word to friends and family who may be looking for a preschool. Thank you!


Please do not leave ANY medications, including sunscreen, Chapstick, or diaper rash cream, in your child's cubby. This is against state regulations. Give ALL medications to your child's teacher and make sure to fill out the medication form, . 


Please put sunscreen on your child before they get dressed in the morning. It is extremely difficult for teachers to apply sunscreen when your child arrives. Drop off times can get busy and the sunscreen could get overlooked. We will apply more as necessary for the afternoon with the sunscreen you have provided, but that initial coating is a good idea and is very helpful!


We have Water Play days during the summer on Tuesdays and Fridays every week starting on Tuesday June 6th. We'll have sprinklers, wading pools, water slides, puddles and wet sand on the playground. On water play days, please send your child to school in a swimming suit or in clothes that can get wet and with an extra good coat of sunscreen. Bring a towel and a change of clothes and remember to label EVERYTHING with your child's full name. Children do not have to participate in water play if they don't want to. 


Please remember to keep clean spare clothes in your child's cubby. The teachers do their best to hep the children keep clean, but wet sand, spill and bathroom accidents happen and your child could need a spur-of-the-moment change of clothes. Check the cubby each night at pick up time to see what may need washing or replacing for the next day. And again, please make sure to label, label, label!


It is a licensing requirement that all nap items be washed once a week. It is also just a good idea. Please help us out on this matter and take your child's nap items home at least once a week to be washed. If your child has a toileting accident during the day or at nap, the soiled items will be put in a plastic bag and will be placed in your child's cubby. The teachers will write a message on the comments section of the sign-in/sign-out sheet so you are aware of things that need to be taken home. 


Please make sure all the information we have on file for your child is current i.e., new phone numbers, new emergency contact numbers, disconnected land lines, new home address, or outgrown food allergies. Please stop in the office to update this information.
